* Pictured above: ''Anime/GabrielDropOut'' with Satanichia buying a gun she bought in Hell's online store. In this case, this is downplayed, since the gun is actually non-lethal, and a shot can make its target to laugh uncontrollably for ten minutes. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard It did not go as Satanichia planned]].

-->'''John Constantine''': ''(reviewing a videotape of the shooting)'' He's drawn the gun. And none of these kids are running away. ''I'' see kids in a schoolyard in some dead-end hole of a town in some asshole county in some crumbling state with no education and no hope and no future and they're waiting. They're just standing there.

* Creator/WarrenEllis wrote a story for ''Comic/{{Hellblazer}}'' called "Shoot" that suggested that the systemic problems of society contributed to the don't-care-if-they-live-or-die attitude of some school shooters... and their victims. It was scheduled to run after the Columbine shooting and pulled for [[TooSoon obvious reasons]]; Ellis quit the title rather than make changes to the story the higher-ups demanded. It was finally published in its original form as a part of a ''Hellblazer'' anthology in 2014.

** He also had no problem dealing with some tampering with his shoe locker (who turned out to be a girl putting a typical "I love you, sempai!" kind of letter inside) by ''blowing up the whole damn shoe locker row with C-4'' (he thought that the tamperer had left a booby-trap bomb behind, you see). What is even more funny/horrifying is that he successfully manages to convince the student council president that it was the ''right'' thing to do (although the president was pretty hard-core CloudCuckoolander and it was implied that MITHRIL had done quite a lot of bribing). This is not the only type of explosive/firearms-related act of overkill that he does throughout the series.
** In the final episode of ''Anime/FullMetalPanicFumoffu'', even Sōsuke goes to far when he (accidentally) brings a biowarfare agent into the school. His classmates promptly beat him up en masse (the fact that, after all of the typical "we're infected!" drama, it turned out to be TheNudifier didn't helped him any).

* In the first issue of ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', Sousuke tries to bring his automatic sidearm to school on the first day. In public, without any attempt to hide it at all. Considering his background in the military, it's no wonder he doesn't see what the issue is. The teacher doing the bag check assumes it's a model, confiscating the thing and letting him off with a stern warning.

* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': Asuka obtained three handguns for Shinji, Rei and herself. They carried them everywhere, including school, hidden in their outfits or handbags. Their guardian Misato did like not it, but Asuka argued that they needed extra protection, and if they could be trusted with a giant robot then they could be trusted with a gun.
* ''Fanfic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'': Kensuke kept several dozens of bolter guns stored in his school's attic per Shinji's intructions in case his schoolmates needed to defend themselves. Although it sounds like a spectacularly bad idea, Shinji's foresight saved his schoolmates lives when Matarael's spawn invaded the city.

* PlayedForLaughs in an early episode of WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}} when he goes to visit Ajax's high school, which has put up metal detectors to catch students trying to smuggle in weapons. It doesn't work too well, since literally every student walking into the building is openly armed to the teeth with everything from rifles to ''rocket launchers'', and the detector doesn't go off until Duckman tries to walk through with a metal lunchbox, which is immediately confiscated and shot to pieces by security. A later episode shows that the urban decay of the school has been mostly cleaned up... thanks to the school now being sponsored by Smith And Wesson.
