So, do you remember how I told you about my friend Josh, who brought that gun to karate class last month? Well, he actually brought the gun to school last week to show it to some of our classmates. I'm not sure why - I think he was just trying to show off to his friends but it was totally nuts.
Josh is kinda my friend - but I couldn't believe it. I didn't want to seem like a rat but I had to tell someone. So I went and told my science teacher, Mr Wallace. What else was I supposed to do? You can't just bring a gun to school! Anyway, after I told Mr. Wallace, he went and got the principal and the police came like five minutes later and took Josh away. They searched his locker, took the gun and even put handcuffs on him - it was just like on TV.
So, now Josh has been expelled and is probably going to have to go to school somewhere else. I feel like a bit of a jerk. Josh doesn't know I'm the one who told on him, but I feel bad, because he's going to have to go to a new school and is going to get in massive trouble. But what was he thinking? I mean you can't just bring a gun to class and start showing everyone, without expecting to get busted.
Has anyone ever brought a gun to your school?
