From the article:
The King County sheriff's office says a 14-year-old Renton, Wash., boy has been arrested after bringing a handgun to school.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Cindi West says the gun found Monday at Northwood Middle School wasn't loaded and the boy didn't have any ammunition with him.
West tells KOMO-TV (http://is.gd/3Uajl1 ) the boy reportedly showed the gun to one student and was overheard telling several others he had a gun. The students told school security, which took the boy out of class. Officers arrested him and took him to juvenile detention.Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
