First Grader Had Loaded Handgun

Last Update:4/24/2007 12:19:04 AM
Web Editor: Rich Hardwick

Teachers at Pulaski County Elementary School found a loaded handgun in a first grader's bookbag. It happened on Wednesday.

School leaders confiscated the weapon and took the seven-year-old out of class without incident.

The school principal, Dale Garnto, says the boy brought the loaded gun to school thinking it was a toy and was taking it home to a relative's house.

The Principal spoke Thursday night at a P.T.O. meeting. He said students weren't in any immediate danger.

DALE GARNTO, PRINCIPAL:
"He did not have any intent to harm anyone. He did not bring it to use the gun. However, it is dangerous having a gun in the presence of young kids."

Principal Garnto says he immediately suspended the boy for ten days. After that, the case goes to an academic tribunal.

Garnto says the tribunal may call for the child's expulsion from school.

That kids' parents are fracking IDIOTS! :banghead:

At the least, they need a good butt whippin' :shattered:
+1

If the child had had a bit of gun etiquette taught to him he would have know it was a real gun & he would never have picked it up.

Dad taught us gun safety while we were very young. But he appended it by telling us that if we *ever* touched the guns when he was not around, we would EAT them.
My brother, sisters and I had no doubt in our minds that we would chomp metal.

Dad had a loaded gun by the door the entire time I was growing up. I valued the continued use of my butt, so I never messed with it.

In the article,

The kid is in trouble, but what about the parents? I wonder if anything will be done about them.

My dad hunted when I was growing up so there were always guns in the house. When I was too little to shoot I knew what they were & that they were more of peril to my young life than just about anything else I was cognizantly aware of. Not because they were dangerous but because my butt would wear out long before my dad's belt would. To this day I get a momentary feeling of panic at the thought of my dad unbuckling his belt. He ALWAYS had a belt on. I guess he only took it off after closing the door to the bedroom because I never saw him take it off unless I was about to have my hide torn up. Once I was old enough I leanred what I needed to konw about guns.
