17-year old Oregon boy brings gun to school and threatens classmate

A 17-year old boy is accused of bringing a handgun to school in Salem, Oregon, and pointing it at a classmate.

From an article:

Police in Salem, Oregon say that a 17-year-old high school student accused of pointing a handgun at another student during class has been taken into custody. 
No one was injured and police did not immediately find a gun. 
Lieutenant Dave Okada said the North Salem High School student was in class Wednesday morning when he was seen "pointing what appeared to be a handgun" at another student. 
Officers responded and found the teen several blocks from the school. Okada says the boy is accused of disorderly conduct, menacing and possession of a firearm in a public building.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
