While fans of FX's hit TV series Sons of Anarchy are accustomed to heavy violence on the show, a controversial shooting scene on the upcoming installment has many people thinking that creator Kurt Sutter and his team have crossed the line with their scripted content.

At the Television Critics Association press tour on Friday, Sutter had announced that one of the sequences in season 5 would involve a school shooting with the person behind it being a young boy. He had spoken to the Huffington Post about the controversial event set to occur on the show, saying that he didn't develop the storyline to raise any eyebrows.

"I know obviously that it would be somewhat controversial, but I feel like as much as I wouldn't do something because it was controversial, I'm also not going to do something because it is," he said.

In a recent write up for Yahoo!News, Richard Lawson had expressed his feelings, stating that he felt Sons had "gone too far" with the program.
