    NY - Teacher confiscates rifle student brought to school


    PHILADELPHIA, N.Y. (AP) — As a 25-year veteran teacher and coach, Bob Kuba is always ready for the unexpected. Police and school administrators say his cool demeanor likely prevented a tragedy.

    On Wednesday afternoon, a 15-year-old student brought a very large object covered in a blanket into Kuba's earth science class at Indian River High School in northern New York and said he wanted to show them a science experiment. When the class was coming to a close, the student removed the blanket, revealing a gun case with a rifle inside.

    Kuba reacted in a flash.

    "When he opened the case, I grabbed the rifle before he could," Kuba told The Associated Press on Thursday. "He offered no resistance at all. I had the gun in one hand and him in the other.".......more.......

    Student in custody but no charges as yet.

    The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation......which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.......George Washington

    Jefferson County Sheriff John Burns told the AP that the student had "a very detailed plan," but the sheriff wouldn't reveal what it was.
    Thank heavens for that teacher.
