Not so long ago, two different school students in Clark County School District itself were arrested for allegedly carrying loaded guns with them. One of them was a 15-year-old male student at Mojave High School in North Las Vegas, who was found with a loaded .40-caliber handgun on Wednesday, September 5. Back on August 22, a 16-year-old male student was taken out of his classroom and found with a loaded 9-millimeter handgun in his backpack, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

At the time, the principal of Centennial High School, Trent Day, had shared in a statement: “If they ever face a situation where they are unsure whether or not to share information with an adult, please remind them to never hesitate reporting anything that may be a safety issue."
While in both the cases, there was no indication whether the students had intended to use the gun or not, "At a minimum, the student will face charges of possession of a firearm on school property and expulsion, as required by Nevada law," reported the Journal.
