    Default Kindergartener brings gun to Texas school, 3 hurt

    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.

    Is it that common for guns to go off when they're dropped??? Or does that only happen in schools (j/k). The last school shooting in LA was from a student dropping his back pack on a table.

    Was thinking the same thing (also sarcastically!) I know there is the right to bear arms in US (not for kids obviously) but is there any law about having to keep guns under lock and key or store the bullets in a seperate location?

    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.

    Yes, how 'bout you don't mention Texas. Why don't you stick to pointing out what you see as grammatical errors and telling us what is a "Third World" and how many maids everyone in a third world has?
    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.

    Well, according to Charlie Sheen, it CAN happen.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    Yeah, cause in Amurrica we're issued a handgun with our birth certificate and social security number. **rolls eyes**
