Another school shooting

No one killed in this one, but you can be sure that the anti-freedom crowd will try to run with this, too:

California sheriff: Youth who shot classmate felt he'd been bullied

Authorities say teacher Ryan Heber helped talk the gunman into handing over his weapon.

(CNN) -- A 16-year-old student who blasted a California high school classroom with a shotgun Thursday was targeting two classmates because he felt he'd been bullied, the local sheriff said Thursday night.
Supposedly, the shooter told a teacher "I don't want to shoot you". It should have been the teacher having the ability to make that statement.

A neighbor with a kid in the school saw the perpetrator walking with the gun, and thought it was "a toy". How is it that so many real toy guns result in instant police response, if not the shooting of an innocent, but witnesses can't call the cops when it appears there's a real danger of a tragedy?
