Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Thursday she charged a 10-year-old boy with bringing an unloaded handgun to his Detroit school.
The boy has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possessing a weapon in school and minor in possession of a firearm in public.
I'm sure gun folks are in favor of putting all the focus on the 10-yar-old and none on the grandfather, whose gun it was. This is how they continue to shirk their responsibility.
The Houston Chronicle reports this:
A New Caney Independent School District student was taken into custody after authorities said he brought a pistol to school, officials said today.
The student, 13, is a seventh-grader at White Oak Middle School, 24161 Briar Berry Lane in Porter.
The student has been charged with unlawfully carrying a firearm and having a gun at a prohibited location — both third-degree felonies. Also, the student will face a mandatory one-year expulsion, officials said.
A meeting for parents has been scheduled at the school's cafeteria at 7 tonight to discuss the incident, officials said.
They're going to talk to the parents. I should hope so.
What's your opinion? Don't you think the laws and the attitudes are too soft on the parents of these kids? The one boy is 10-years-old, for crying out loud. Why do gun owners continue to defend these appalling examples of improper gun security in the home? Is the dilemma faced by gun owners about how to keep the gun safely away from children yet sufficiently accessible for an emergency too much for them to cope with? Do they tend to fault on the side of accessibility at the cost of safety and security?
