In New Hampshire, two high school students were arrested for bringing a toy gun to school. Another student had noticed the gun on the hallway floor and notified school officials. In the abundance of caution, school authorities contacted law enforcement who then went to the school to investigate. Police found the plastic toy gun with an orange tip in a locker. In response to the situation, the school was put on lockdown. Parents were notified via text message and other means and also went to the school.
While the toy gun that was recovered looked very much like a toy, school officials and law enforcement are better to err on the side of safety than take guesses as to the existence and severity of the dangers.
