Kids and Guns

It’s about time I’ve said something about this.  It’s really getting out of hand. Earlier in my life, a group of distraught kids shoot up Columbine High School in Colorado, for the very first school shooting I can recall. A little later, right outside my hometown, Flint, MI, a 1st grader shoots and kills 6 year old Kayla Rowland….time passes, more school shootings occur. 

Earlier this year, a kid shoots up Virginia Tech. Earlier this month, a cop shoots up a house with his highschool friends in Crandon, Wisconsin. Earlier this week, a boy kills a group of students and teachers at his highschool in Cleveland, OH. EARLIER TODAY, a 3rd grader gets on a school bus with a loaded .38.

It’s time for this shit to stop. Click more for the latest story.

 

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A third-grade student has been taken into custody after he pointed a loaded gun at other students on a school bus, sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies said the 8-year-old boy got on a Mount Healthy school bus in Springfield Township on Friday morning.

As the bus headed toward Duvall Elementary, deputies said, the boy pulled out a fully-loaded .380 caliber Beretta handgun from his backpack.

The student pointed the handgun, which was still in a holster, at the other 12 students on the bus, deputies said.

The bus driver notified authorities, and deputies took the boy into custody when the bus stopped on Sacramento Avenue just before 9 a.m.

“It’s unfortunate that an eight-year-old student is able to get their hands on a gun,” Superintendent Dave Horine said in a news release. “We are thankful that no one was hurt, and that students acted in a responsible way by telling an adult. We are pleased with the appropriate actions the bus driver took to ensure student safety, as well as the quick response of law enforcement agencies.”

The district notified the parents of the other children on the bus about the incident.

The student did not make any particular or direct threats to any of the other students, deputies said.

Charges are pending the outcome of an investigation into where and how the boy got the gun, but deputies said late Friday morning that the boy will face no criminal charges.

  1. a 8 year old!…jeezus. where do these lil kids get these guns from..plus why arent the parents takin care of they kids…if the parents take car eof the kids they wont even think about touching, grabbing, or using a gun…this is b.s. man. so many factors in these types of situations but msotly it gets pointed to hip hop, which doesnt help with the gun talk BUT its the parents job to regulate whut they kids do and listen to and watch…good post cmac…def need to be said.

  2. xfacta….
    The us doesn’t ban guns because the majority of old white men are in the NRA and won’t support, let alone vote for someone who doesn’t allow them and their right to bear arms. and 2ndly, the fact that people have a right to bear arms.
