Cole had intended to do the right thing by attempting to take his gun home after seeing he had forgotten it in his truck. Yes the rules state no weapons allowed on school property, however Cole did not intentionally bring his gun on school property . His gun was not loaded and was just forgotten about. Cole should not be punished his whole life, just because he forgot about something and should be able to graduate with his class , in about a month.

      This young main goes to main office to call his mom to come get the weapon . Hello are you kidding me you are sending the wrong message. Had he covered it up went about his day and went home no one would have known. But he does the most responsible thing and now he being punished for it. Do you think other students are going to come forth with other information to school officials in the future? No way they will fear getting in trouble for doing waits right so we create of atmosphere of silence. Also, as adults we are stupid zero tolerance prompted him to immediate call his mom to comply with school policy. This is another case of an innocent human being getting caught up in Adults that have seam to forget how to react and review each case on its merits. Adults we are to lazy to think outside the box are we to lazy to think this thru! Praying for you your family friends and those in your town whom are persecuting you.

      I think if anyone should be in trouble it should be his parents. If he hasn't even graduated from High School why are they letting him ride around with a gun in his car, loaded or unloaded. THEY should know where that gun is AT ALL TIMES, they failed at their job and allowed him to drive to school with it in his car.

      Someone shouldn't be deprived his/her dream just because they were human and forgot something. We are all human We all forget. Someone should also not be punished for a mistake without given the given the chance to explain. Lying can be detected, not assumed.
