Kindergartner brings gun to Texas school, 3 hurt - Yahoo! News
HOUSTON – A kindergartener brought a gun to his Houston elementary school and was among three students injured by fragments when it dropped from his pocket during lunchtime and accidentally fired, officials said.
One bullet discharged about 11 a.m. in the school's cafeteria, spraying fragments at the students, said Houston Independent School District Assistant Police Chief Robert Mock.
"Either some type of chips off the floor, or it could be pieces of the round that discharged," Mock said. "They had some cuts and stuff on their legs, they don't appear to be life threatening."
Two 6-year-old boys, including the one who had the gun, were wounded in the foot, said district spokesman Jason Spencer. A 5-year-old girl also suffered a foot injury, Spencer said.
Images taken from Houston television station KPRC's news helicopter showed three children being wheeled to ambulances on stretchers. All were sitting up and appeared to be talking with emergency personnel. Upset parents rushed to the scene.
Houston is the state's largest school district with more than 200,000 students.

Sadly, I'm not shocked to see this in the US. Not to mention Texas.
Who lets their kindergartener out of the house with a fucking gun? Parents don't notice a suspicious bulge? His pocket is always that big?

Little kids have the right to carry guns too. It says so in the Constitution. (sarcasm)
I'm guessing the same type of idjit who leaves a loaded gun laying around where said 5yr old can get to it. The dumbass is big with these people I'm guessing.

Hey, it's Texas. Don't they teach 5 year olds how to shoot?

Yes, but using a safety is not until they get to 1st grade curriculum.

The solution is very simple. You need to arm all 6 year olds. If the other kids in the class had guns, one of them could have taken the kid out before he accidentally shot 3 students.
Just sos ya know, not every motherfucker in Texas has a gun, let alone is every motherfucker in Texas stupid enough to keep them unlocked, loaded and easily accessible to a 5 year old. That's stupid, even for the North Pole.
Kill everything... that IS the solution!
