    6 yr old bring a gun to school

    Distraught parents descended on a northeast Houston elementary school today after a pistol brought to campus by a kindergartner fell and discharged, slightly injuring three pupils.
    The pistol fell out of a pants pocket of the 6-year-old boy, who was not identified, and fell on the floor of cafeteria of Ross Elementary School, 2819 Bay, about 10:22 a.m., Houston school district superintendent Jason Spencer said.

    I kind of question exactly what happened. The gun full out of the pocket and just went off? I wonder what kind of gun it was (obviously a pocket pistol if a 6 yr old was able to conceal it there.).

    Seriously, I'm glad no one was killed.

    According to the article, he was most likely injured and still at the hospital.

    Terrible... I have a 6 year old... I keep my guns trigger locked, unloaded, and put away when they are around.... but still... I simply CAN NOT IMAGINE how he could EVER get that gun without me knowing about it. I mean they are simply not out of my supervision for long enough to even do sometihng remotely close to that...


    seriously... what kind of parents are these people to have their kid unsupervised long enough to get at their guns, move it, hide it, and then take it to school with them....

    That's terrible. The whole thing is really, but he's just a little kid.

    Druggies, gangbangers, idiots, parents that don't care, I'm sure there's a long list of moron parents, and other's that fail in preventing access to 6 yr olds.

    seems to be a lot missing, like how did somebody get a gun into a gun free zone? Thats the real mystery!

    Also when did they start putting the names of children in the newspaper!! It also looks like the Hospital released the names! When did that start happening!

    If everyone could control their kids, then there would be almost no crime, unwanted pregnancies, accidental deaths, no poverty, and so on. Things happen even when we do our best.

    It makes better press than saying the 6 year old pulled the trigger, poo'd his pants and dropped it. Easier to blame the gun in such circumstances than the parents (who are, of course, "victims").
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    At least this sounds more truthful.

    Bad reporting. Type of firearm... calibre... at a minimum. Guns don't 'fall out' of pockets. Bullets don't go in the opposite direction of the hammer striking the deck... The kid pulled the trigger 'showing it'. 'Got some shrapnel... pooped his pants 'n dropped it. OK... so how'd he get 'hold of it?

    I heard on the news that it belonged to a family friend. This indicates to me that while visiting a friends home, the kid was snooping, and stole it, most likely the adults were unaware on this.

    What kind of handgun can a 6 y/o boy fit in his pants pocket w/o it being detected? We're talking about a small pocket here...

    Kel-Tec P-32, P3AT, or Ruger LCP? Maybe an NAA mini-revolver.

    PPK and smaller. Countless pocket guns are small enough to hide in a pocket where no one expects a gun to be, including on a kid that small. Some kids pants have pockets a lot bigger than my tightest jeans, which can pocket my .32 just fine.
