No, an Uzi Was Not Found at a Philadelphia Charter School
On Monday, according to police, the assistant dean at the Walter D. Palmer Leadership Partners Charter School on Harbison Avenue in the Frankford section of Philadelphia found a loaded gun inside a locker during renovations.
CBS Philly quickly reported that the gun was an Uzi, and people really freak out about Uzis. But it turns out it was just a 9mm handgun from MasterPiece Arms, like the one seen here.
The School District isn’t answering any questions about the gun, since Walter D. Palmer is a charter school. And as for the school itself, they hung up on me when I called to get a comment. But rest assured, parents: It was not an Uzi.
