How many gun-related incidents in schools do we need before we realize that this nation has a serious gun problem? Perhaps an elementary school student bringing a gun to class will do the trick.

A student at Kossuth Elementary reported to the teacher that another student was carrying a gun. The teacher contacted the office and administrators removed the child and the child's possessions from the classroom. [The school's superintendent] says an unloaded .22 caliber pistol was found but there was no ammunition in the child's possession.
