15-year old New Hampshire boy brings .22 rifle to school

A 15-year old boy, who had run away from home, brought an unloaded .22-caliber rifle to school with him and hid it in the bushes. 

From the article:
A 15-year-old Manchester West High School student was taken from school to the Police Department on Monday morning after admitting to officials that he hid an unloaded .22-caliber rifle in the bushes outside the school, Manchester police told News 9.
The teen's parents reported him as a runaway at 5 a.m., according to police. The parents told police a weapon and some electronics were missing from the house, police said. 
Police said when they arrived at West High School, the teen was in the guidance counselor's office. Police said there is no indication that the teen had any intention of shooting the weapon at school and stressed that no ammunition was found either near the weapon or on the student.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
