GAINESVILLE, Tex. - School police in Gainesville are investigating reports that a child brought a BB gun on a school bus.

The incident happened Thursday afternoon as kids were riding home from Gainesville Intermediate School.

Superintendent Bill Gravitt says a student had a BB gun in his backpack and another student saw it and told school staff.

Gravitt says police will question several students and that investigation should be complete by Tuesday afternoon.

He says no student will be punished until the investigation is finished.

    GISD "controls" a lot of investigations by having their own police force. I wonder what kind of gun it would have been if the "real" law enforcement officers had intercepted it.

    tired of location, if you don't like the school why don't you take your kid out? If you parents would discipline your kids like you are suppose to then things like bringing guns to school or kids acting up in school would not happen, if they would dress like they are suppose to instead of some of these girls looking like hookers coming to school the school would not have problems, and holes in these kids pants place that they should not have holes in them

    The funny thing to me is, it went from a hand gun to a bb gun. I was told by a school employee that it was a hand gun and the bb gun story is just ANOTHER cover up. This is not the first time this has happened. But they think if they put our kids in uniforms, then this will all stop. Think again GISD. It's just going to be harder to spot the kids that act out since they will all be dressed alike.

    Good god. A b-b gun, don't know many kids in the day that did not have one. No need for police then, Why waste their time on something so trivial. Our parents dealt out the punishment and extra chores back then. And we all lived and most are fine people. Time for more parenting and less, game boy's and texting. Just my thought.

    On the other hand LEAH, if kids are exposed to firearms appropriately and taught proper handling and respect they won't seem like such a big, deal and exciting taboo, therefore not interesting enough to bring to school.

    If we dont let out kids play with guns they wont think that its COOL to bring them to school, its 2008 not the wild west, there are plenty of other toys for kids to play with, when they become and adult then the option is there for them to own one.

    How old was the kid? Probably thought he was impressing his friends. (rolls eyes)
