Police: Student, 14, Brought Gun To School In Calumet City

CALUMET CITY, Ill. (CBS) — A 14-year-old pupil could be in big trouble after bringing a loaded handgun to school in Calumet City.

Calumet City Assistant Police Chief Dan Zorzie told CBS 2 the teen brought the gun to the Dirsken Middle School, at 1650 Pulaski Rd. in the south suburb.

Around 3 p.m., students told their teachers about seeing another student showing off a pistol, Zorzi said. Security officers were as alerted, and they found the pistol in a case, he said.

The 14-year-old who brought the gun to school is from Calumet City. It has not been learned what kind of consequences the teen will face.

Teachers at the school were reportedly meeting Tuesday morning about the incident.

    This sounds like a copy-cat from last week. So, the teachers are holding a meeting. What’s to discuss? Illinois has a law regarding minors possessing a handgun and guns in school zones and on and on (we are 3rd behind Mass. and Calf. in the vast numbers of laws designed to punish). How ’bout have a firearm safety presentation by a trained, knowledgeable member of the ISRA at an assembly of the students, faculty, and staff? Let them know what is safe and what is legal. What is unsafe and not legal. Let them know that the consequences of their actions could follow them for the rest of their lives no matter where the go.

      The anti-gun liberals would never allow it.
