New York's School weapon-scan called a success

NEW YORK — Students checked more than 1,500 guns, knives and other dangerous items at the door at New York City schools this year - down 18 percent from last year.

From July 1, 2006, to June 10 of this year, cops netted 353 weapons - including guns and knives - from city schools. They also confiscated 1,340 "dangerous instruments," including penknives, imitation guns, laser pointers and pipes.

During the same period from 2005 to 2006, police collected 383 weapons and 1,678 dangerous items.

While a few confiscated weapons - like the .38-caliber revolver a 7-year-old boy brought to his Queens second-grade class in May - were nabbed at sites without metal detectors, most seizures came at schools with scanners.
