Fearful NJ parents flip out, trigger lockdown over prop rifle used in school play

A New Jersey school was under a brief lock down today after parents freaked out over a over a prop rifle for the school play.

The media has people so worked up they’re going crazy, next they’ll probably ban school plays that include prop guns because of this.

A prop gun sparked a brief lockdown at Northern Valley Regional High School in Demarest, New Jersey, police say.

A student came to school on Knickerbocker Road this morning carrying a prop rifle for the school’s production of Hello Dolly, police said.

Some parents saw her and thought the gun was real, and they alerted authorities.
Police identified the girl within 10 minutes of responding to the scene.
The problem with this and similar accounts is that they clearly indicate that fear-filled adults have allowed themselves to become completely irrational.

If the freaked-out parents who called the police applied even minimal critical thinking skills, they would have realized that the other students entering the school with the girl holding the toy were not afraid of her, or avoiding her, or acting in the way you would expect people to act if they saw a real firearm on a school campus.

  1. When brains go out the window, along with logic, and common sense, you have so called adults acting like this. How pathetic most of the people in this nation have become.

  2. Lock up all people over 38 years old and let the next generation rule the world.

    Why not just kill them Jon? With such logic...

    This is so pathetic, it's sad. I wish more people would learn that one has better chances in times of danger, if one keeps calm & tries to think & act logically, not freak out all willy-nilly, like a headless chicken, waiting for the evil cops to arrive & 'fix' everything.
    They have no clue how badly they've been 'brainwashed'...

  5. I would think twice about calling the police to anything as they tend to be a little trigger happy or treat everyone as enemy combatants.

  6. it has become so bad that wooden rifles have been replaced with wooden spears for a production of The Nutcracker. This is true and it looks as ridiculous as it sounds.

  8. Americans are reacting more and more like the characters in South Park would.
