All hell broke loose this morning as a former student visited his old Michigan high school wearing a camouflage getup.

It is the same uniform he dons where he serves at the Selfridge Air National Guard base located less than ten miles away from the L’Anse Creuse High School in Harrison Township, where it all took place.

The man, who was not identified in reports, was apparently looking for the school guidance counselor sometime around 6AM to obtain a letter of recommendation, but an overnight custodian spotted him wandering the halls and called police on account of the man’s “suspicious” nature.

The commotion started because it was believed the man may have had a gun.

He was said to be wearing a camouflage uniform, black flak jacket (with pockets) and an empty gun holster.

“His visit set off a chain of events,” wrote the Detroit Free Press, “that led to the school closing before students started to arrive, said L’Anse Creuse Schools spokeswoman Kelly Allen.”

The call also sparked an evacuation, a school lockdown and an investigation, although the man had already left the school. “The school was placed on lockdown and buses filled with students were forced to wait at a nearby grocery store parking while police conducted their investigation,” My Fox Detroit reported.

Police say they later questioned the man at his home, and that he was “very cooperative.” The County Sheriff said the man exercised “poor judgement” in wearing military attire to the school.

“I think it was just poor judgement going to the school dressed like that,” Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham stated.

No charges will be filed, according to Fox News.

Riding the wave of hysteria brought on by the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Conn., we can add one more item to the list of things you can’t do at paranoid schools across the country.

Here’s the running list:

No biting breakfast tarts into the shape of a gun.

No building something that resembles a gun out of Lego bricks.

No playing with toys that shoot soft, harmless projectiles like Nerf toy guns.

No playing with pink Hello Kitty guns that shoot bubbles (this is a big one and can lead to you being charged with a “terroristic threat” to harm others.)

No cutting or shaping paper into a gun.

No screensavers or backgrounds showing guns.

Definitely no forming of the hands or fingers into a gun gesture and saying, “Pow.” (here, here and here)

No playing cops and robbers with each other.

And no obtaining a letter of recommendation while unarmed and wearing your military uniform.

I get this funny feeling that someone has a deliberate agenda to really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.
