LOL once I found a steak knife in my purse, I'd grabbed it on the way to a dog show and needed it to cut up treat rewards, ended up carrying it around for a week.

The way the article was worded made me think that maybe a metal detector found it or something. I went back and checked, and it said:

The instrument was taken from Taylor's purse at school by security guards. She told them it was harmless but they called it a weapon.
It doesn't state that definitively, so that would be my guess, either that or a random search.

I don't know. This makes about as much sense to me as suspending someone with an eyelash curler because they could pinch someone with it. Plus, as Mrs. S said, purses become catch-alls for all sorts of things. Just because a female has a personal grooming item in there doesn't mean she was intending on using it in public.

Now that you mention it, I'm pretty sure that I have a box cutter in mine. I bought it to cut some duct tape, and threw it in there and forgot about it.

just something the article didnt mention. this school is kind of notorious in the area for "stuff happening". kids have brought guns there before and all that, lots of fights, etc etc. Penn Hills, like everywhere else has it's nice parts and not so nice parts, so i think you can get the picture.

i used to take pocket knives and lighters to school just to see if i could get away with it. i guess im lucky i was never caught. these days that stuff will haunt you for the rest of your life.

Can't be too careful I guess.

DH teaches fifth grade and saw a student (I think in a younger grade) expelled for threatening to go home and get a gun. A few years ago in this neighborhood, a kid shot another kid over $14.

That story does not add up.

A loaded 9 mm is pretty heavy and not small. A bit hard to believe she did not know it was there.

This would be a good way for an older male to get a gun inside the school without carrying it in himself.
