Learning Fear: Discussion About Toy Nerf Gun Causes Lockdown at Elementary Schools

A discussion between two children about a toy nerf gun caused a lockdown and a massive armed police response at two elementary schools in the Bronx today in yet another example of how hysteria is sweeping America’s education system in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings.

“It’s nerve racking. There are police officers here with assault rifles and there are helicopters flying around. It’s really scary out here,” said parent Jacklyn Williams.

“When I got to the school, it was crazy,” added Vanessa Sanchez, a mother of a first-grader. “People were yelling and running around. There was a huge group of people in the park across the street. I was really nervous and worried. I didn’t know what happened to my son. I want to make sure he was safe.”

“Two students from P.S. 171 said they were told to crouch under their desks during the sweep,” reports MyFoxNY.

The lockdown ended at 9:30am.

The boy “could face some kind of discipline from the school” for merely discussing the toy gun with his classmate, reports the NY Daily News.
