I am just old enough to remember when refinishing a gun in shop class in high school was not uncommon. But no more. Now this news due to the ongoing wave of 'paranoia' caused by school shootings done by untreated teenage nutballs:

Lockdown over gun scare ends at three Davis schools

At least three Davis County schools were put in lockdown this morning after a bus driver reported seeing a person with a gun.
West Point Junior High went into full lockdown around 9 a.m. after a bus driver spotted what turned out to be a student carrying a Civil War replica rifle from the school to his mom's car, Davis School District community relations specialist Andrea Bos said.
The rifle was part of a class project, and had been left in the classroom at the teacher's request for some time, she said. Being the end of the school year, the student was taking the object home.
"They're taking no discipline action," Bos said of the student. "He's actually on his way to Lagoon day."
The lockdown, which means outside and classroom doors are locked and nobody goes in or out, lasted about 45 minutes, Bos said.
The district confirmed that two other area schools Lakeside and West Point elementaries also were locked down as a precaution. Bos was uncertain whether a fourth also was affected.

My thoughts on the above:

The media and the government (LLC Inc) loves this kind of stuff because they want to 'protect' us from ourselves. It gives the govt (LLC Inc) self worth and value, most especially to those in power and keeps them in power. After all a man with a gun who knows how to use it is what the govt (LLC Inc) fears most. Thats why we fight the good 2nd Amendment fight every day of our lives against the likes of the Klintons, Bradys, PETA, etc ad infintum.

Constitutionally speaking of course its the job of the Army to protect the gov't from it's citizens; it's the job of the Navy to protect the govt from foreign govts; and its the job, right, and duty, of the militia to protect the citizens from the govt. Think that all sounds right wing crazy? Read the constitution.

I do suppose that the transfer of the rifle from the school to the car could have been coordinated with the school officials. You nailed it with the word paranoid.

Things have sure changed. I remember making at least a dozen cannons that were actual firing models in the machine shop at school. Now that paranoia rules, the days of freedom are doomed! We even had an archery club in the basement. :cry: I want to go back about 40 years, to an age where I could do pretty much what I wanted, was old enough to do it, and didn't have to worry about a paranoid society. The hunting and fishing was great, and the land owners were polite and would welcome you with open arms. The schools actually taught you your "readin', writin' and 'rithmitic. If an attitude adjustment was needed, it was applied, and your attitude adjusted accordingly. If this is progress, and a sign of things that will come, I'm glad that I'm getting old, and will someday be leaving this realm of insanity for a better place.
