    And I'm glad there were no injuries because you know these guns can jump out and hurt people.

    6-Year-Old Brings Loaded Gun To SchoolPosted: 4:23 pm EDT April 27, 2009Updated: 6:16 pm EDT April 27, 2009
    FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- [/b]A 6-year-old kindergartner allegedly brought a loaded handgun to a College Park elementary school, according to Fulton County school officials.When contacted by Channel 2 Action News, officials at Heritage Elementary School described the gun as a “small handgun.” Officials could not say how many bullets were in the chamber.School officials discovered the gun around 11:30 a.m. Monday morning. School spokesperson Susan Hale acknowledged that since school begins at 8 a.m., the gun was in the school for as many as three hours before it was detected. Hale said the 6-year-old boy showed the gun to another child, who reported it to a school official.No one was hurt.Fulton County officials said they do not believe the child intended any harm.The child was taken to the principal’s office and then sent home. He will remain at home until a school disciplinary tribunal, which will be held in the next 7-10 days.School resource officers are looking into how the child obtained the gun.

    It is absoluty possible to have more than one bullet in the chamber. Do you really think a six year old knows how to load a firearm.

    I'm guessing a Pepperbox or a Duckfoot.

    I do find it comical that if you post something said in humor... so many haters will chime in and comment on it.

    It seems they cannot find anything funny. So they just have to post something moronic to top it and get the spot light on themselves.

    I'm betting it was a snubby revolver. (The "chamber" being the cylinder) Some reporter obviously took their time on that one.


    Either that or...

    back on (kinda) topic, i just read a piece in Newsweek that again mentioned the horrible gun show loophole, only this time the author just said that anyone can buy guns without a background check, conveniently forgetting that there are FFL holders at gun shows.. my point? i guess i gave up a long time ago hoping that anyone in mainstream (or, really, any type of) media would have any semblance of a clue about anything firearms related..

    What are you trying to say with the Raistlin reference?

    Are you comparing him to his earlier ways or later?

    A "disciplinary tribunal." Are they ******* kidding? "Tribunal." I thought schools in GA had a little common sense. What are they going to do to the six year old, send him to the chaingang?

    If 'tribunals ' become acceptable when dealing with six year old children, there is at least a possibility there could be 71 bullets in the chamber ( 7+1 ) or ...!

    well, technically, if it was a muzzleloader, he could have loaded more than one bullet in the chamber....:P

    If it was indeeda real handgun, what kind of idiot/irresponsible gun owner lets a 6-year-old get his hands on it and take it to a school? :what:
