Say you have a 3 or 4 year old in preschool. The school calls saying they found a live round of 22 caliber shots out in plain sight in the hallway. No weapons found, no real threat found in the school just the shots. Considering all that is going on lately with school shootings would you send your kid back no problem? Mind you this school is in CT and since the Sandy Hook shooting security in schools has been improved but then this happens? What would you do and how would you feel?

Yay okay its not just me. Part of me feels I'm over reacting but I can't help but feel its some kind of warning! Why the hell are there shots in the school to begin with? Its a preschool to first grade only school so it makes me wonder where it came from. Freaks me the hell out. I'm pretty sure he won't be going back.

No! I would not send them... thats crazy. Are they trying to find who they belong to? Maybe one of the kids took them from their parents house and just dropped them in the hallway... Either way, its still a no. They would not be going back to school. At that point I would probably pull them and either home school them myself or hire someone to do it.

if this happend in england (where i am) criminal investigations would be made, the school would be closed down full stop... and someone would be getting a prison sentance. but eh... thats just the uk.. we take things like this very very serious.

Oh yeah, the police have been there looking around and are going to investigate into the matter. It just seriously rubs me the wrong way. I can't help but think maybe someone still managed to sneak in and left it as a warning. I'm praying it was a little kid but then I wonder why they would leave it there in the hallway in between two classrooms. They searched the whole school and everyone's backpacks and found nothing so I don't know.

I'd be really uncomfortable with that, and yeah, I'd have to consider not sending my child back.

I wish!! It just baffles me that a month ago we had that horrible school shooting in this state. Security is supposed to be heightened right now from what they've been saying so what gives?

well as u know in the uk its against the law to even own a gun.. or bullets. making it highly unlikely for some crazed loonly toon to do it.. we had an incident years ago (dunblain) where a school was shot up and many children died as a result.. since then, schools here are on serious lock down. and parents even stuggle to get there kids out of schools as many layers of gates have to be unlocked. i guess it all boils down to american gun laws.... for your county anyway. (its very rare things like that happen here, but not to say it hasnt or wount) its just harder. is there any reason as to why your country wount change there gun laws?? (not that it would put a stop, but it might help?)

im confused I thought Americans wanted guns in schools. Maybe these just belonged to a teacher and were dropped or were in their drawer and a student took them
