A student brings a weapon to school. They may not necessarily use it against anybody, but even then you can expect somebody's parents to panic about what could have happened. This plot will rarely last longer than a single VerySpecialEpisode, and can focus on the incident, the following consequences, or a mix of each.

* The eponymous Manga/AssassinationClassroom students use guns and knives on a daily basis to kill their teacher... although to be fair, the weapons used are harmless to humans, and the teacher is a SuperSpeed creature who intends to [[EarthShatteringKaboom blow up the Earth]] after [[DetonationMoon making the Moon a permanent crescent]].

* PlayedForLaughs in an early episode of {{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.

Unfortunately, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_shooting this can also be]] TruthInTelevision, as school shooting tragedies such as UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} have proven -- otherwise, schools wouldn't have metal detectors and X-ray scanners, and teachers wouldn't be issued kevlar vests. Of course, the real life portion of this is OlderThanTheyThink; the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} incident in 1999 was simply one of a handful of shootings that earned national attention. In his book ''Brain Droppings'', Creator/{{George Carlin}} refers to schoolyard deaths back in his childhood. Also, the majority happen in America for [[SarcasmMode some reason]]...

* At the beginning of ''MaiHiME'', one of Haruka's complaints against Mai was that she brought a sword to school. It was actually Mikoto's.

The fact that the Prescotts are rich, [[KarmaHoudini he doesn't get punished]].]]incredibly wealthy [[spoiler: and Nathan's in cahoots with one of the teachers]] helps too, of course.
