A 16-year-old student has been arrested after he allegedly brought a gun to Long Island City High School Monday morning.

The teen was caught with a loaded weapon at the school, located at 14-30 Broadway, at around 8:15 a.m. after staff at the school searched his backpack, police said.

The search was prompted after the student was found in possession of a knife.

The 16-year-old had allegedly slashed another student at the school recently and the school’s dean asked him this morning if he still had the weapon.

The student then turned over the knife which prompted school authorities to search his backpack for additional weapons.

The loaded gun was then found inside the teen’s backpack and school safety agents placed him under arrest, police said.

The teen was charged with criminal possession of a loaded weapon and having a gun on school grounds. He was also hit with an obstruction charge for pushing a school safety agent during the arrest, according to police.

Since he’s a minor, his parents should suffer the consequences. They should be substantial and other parents should notice and realize that they are responsible for their kid’s behavior.

Yeah the Democrats did it. You and other people with your cult like mentality and devotion to a political party are the fault. Access to guns is also a factor in this case. That’s a Republican protected issue. Republicans also are responsible for policies that have decimated states like Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina.


Democratic Socialist are fesponsibld for No bail lsw putting Crominals back on the street the same day kr next and Woke DA Alvin Bragg Hochil will not remove and sbe td Zeldin Why does he want to put people in Jail ? That worries me. THAT is NY. How aboot Democratic Socialist run Cities like Chicago,Philadelphia,
LA,SF Oakland ,Seattle, Minneapolis,Portland was threatened by Antifa for about a year,poli e precinct burned down and many downtown boarded up. Guns are in our Constitution. I do believe assault weapons should be banned. They were once before and should be again. You are drinking the Dem. SOCIALIST MEDIA KOOL-ADE PROPAGANDA IN THE MEDIA WHICH THEY CONTROL.You csnnot ket criminals go free and exlect tbem not to use illegsl guns once out. Legal guns fir citizebs are mainly for protection or hunting. Democratic Socialists are ruining the entire country. Starts with Biden/ Harris.
