An 11-year old boy faces criminal charges after bringing a gun to West Kearns Elementary School in Kearns, UT yesterday, and allegedly threatening a classmate with it. According to Mediaite‘s Angali Sareen (who also writes for Addicting Info), the sixth grader told his classmates that his parents had advised him to bring the gun for protection after last week’s Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, CT. According to multiple accounts, including Andrew Wittenberg’s write-up for Salt Lake City UT’s KSL.com, the boy had also given the same explanations to school administrators, but his classmate, Isabelle Rios had a different story to tell:


”He pulled out a gun and he put it to my head — me and my friend — (and) said he was going to kills us. I told him I was going to tell, but he said, ‘If you tell, I’m going to kill you.’”



Although the incident allegedly happened during morning recess, Rios didn’t say anything until around dismissal time at 3:00 p.m., when she informed her teacher. The teacher reportedly took the gun away and took the student to the principal’s office, where staff called the police. According to Granite School District Superintendent Ben Horsley, the gun and ammunition were in the boy’s backpack, but the gun was not loaded. Horsley also praised the teacher’s swift action and clear-headedness:


“This teacher in particular put herself with this student and took him into physical custody to ensure that he was not able to use that weapon to harm anybody,

3. If it really was due to his parents, they should lose custody.

Absolutely no reasonable or even semi-reasonable argument can be made to the contrary; no custody, no contact until adulthood.

6. See, if the little girl also had a gun she could have defended herself.

 

She could have stood her ground and killed him.

This is a sick society.

7. If he did THIS:

”He pulled out a gun and he put it to my head — me and my friend — (and) said he was going to kills us. I told him I was going to tell, but he said, ‘If you tell, I’m going to kill you.’” ................then he is already beyond redemption. He AND his parents (who obviously taught him to be this way AND provided access to the gun) need to be locked up for a VERY long time.

Gun owner responsibility FAIL. Parenting FAIL. Member of human race FAIL.
