A young student of a middle school in Tacoma, Washington took a handgun from his father's gun collection in an attempt to trade it for a PlayStation Portable today, reports say.
The gun wasn't loaded, but the boy was carrying ammunition as well. After he was found with the weapon and had it confiscated, the boy's father told police a second gun was missing, too, prompting a lockdown of the school for several hours.
The boy is currently in juvenile detention.
Kombo points out a "Guns for Games" program might actually be beneficial in light of this, as those Gun Buyback programs have been the last few years -- in fact, some have gone so well police departments, like the one in Oakland, California, have had to put up hundreds of thousands of dollars in IOUs to the public. Who loves America? We do!
