Middle School Student Arrested After Bringing Gun To School To Protect Against School Shooting

A sixth-grade student at West Kearns Elementary School in Kearns, Utah, was taken into police custody and charged with multiple counts of assault after bringing a gun to school Monday, reports NBC News.

According to school officials, he claimed that he was protecting himself against a shooting like the one that took place in Newtown, Conn. when 20-year-old Adam Lanza forced himself into Sandy Hook Elementary and killed 20 children — ages 6 and 7 — and 6 adults, before killing himself.
