* The eponymous ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' students use guns and knives on a daily basis to kill their teacher. 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]].

As this teacher's only class is located in a satellite building very isolated from the rest of the school (and whose students stay in that campus region during the school day), it's entirely reasonable that only those students, the principal, and the specific teachers using that building know the weapons exist.

* In the original ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' game, the character Masao ("Mark" in the PS1 English version) Inaba starts off wielding a very large axe in the first battle in the hospital. Since he traveled directly to the hospital from school, the only explanation as to how he has one is that he brought it with him to school and kept it in his backpack; this just begs the question as to WHY he would bring an axe to school.

* An instructional video about school dress codes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IskfFKiuh3Y shows how easy it is to hide 10+ different pistols, an Uzi and a hunting shotgun in baggy jeans and a large t-shirt]]. When one considers that a potential school shooter must actually be able to walk around and sit down normally before unleashing [[MoreDakka this much dakka]], [[FunnyAneurysm it becomes hard not to laugh at how much counterproductive effort they put into emphasizing their point.]]

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]]...
