A boy from suburban Harvard faces punishment for taking some spent shell casings to school.

Police say the 12-year-old told them the casings were from a gun exhibition, and he wanted to show them to his classmates at Harvard Junior High School.

But when he lost one of the casings on the school bus, he panicked and dumped the other two in a school bathroom.

All public schools in Harvard were locked down briefly after Wednesday’s incident, and every locker was inspected until police were confident there was no danger.

    It is not illegal to possess empty brass. They are inanimate objects whose only value is what the scrap metal market will pay. Perhaps if the adults in this country would stop acting like chickens with their heads cut off, we can live in a free society. The older I get , the more like juveniles other adults behave. Stop the ludicrous, irrational thinking! Leave the kid alone.
