After Connecticut school shooting, 11 year old Utah boy brings a gun to school

In light of the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting, kids and parents are more nervous about school shootings at their own school or children's school. An 11 year old Utah boy was so nervous about a school shooting that he brought a gun to school to "protect" himself. From an article:
Authorities say a Utah sixth-grader caught with a gun at school told administrators he brought the weapon to defend himself in case of an attack similar to the mass shooting last week in Newtown, Conn.
School officials say the 11-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a dangerous weapon and aggravated assault after other students told police he pointed the handgun at them on a field at a suburban Salt Lake City elementary school.
Officials say school staff confronted the boy in class after hearing he had a weapon and seized the unloaded gun and ammunition from his backpack Monday.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
