    10 year old fires gun in school

    Boy, 10, Fires Gun In School, Police Say - News - MSNBC.com

    LINDEN, N.J. - A 10-year-old boy fired a gun inside a Linden, N.J., elementary school Wednesday while showing the firearm to another student, police told News 4 New York.

    The fourth-grader discharged the .380-caliber semiautomatic handgun while inside a coat closet just after 3 p.m., shooting a bullet through a wall into a vacant classroom, where it became lodged in another wall, Detective Lt. Raymond Tyra said.

    Stephanie Rosario, 9, said she dared the boy, who has not been identified, to shoot the weapon.

    "I'm like, 'I dare you,' then I'm like, 'No, I'm just kidding,' cause I thought it was like fake," she said. "I thought it was like a water gun."

    She soon found out it was real. He pulled the trigger and then dropped the gun, she said. The bullet went in between a female student's legs and then through the wall and into the vacant classroom. No one was hit.

    The boy said he simply found the gun outside. He was too shaken to give the exact location.

    "He was upset," Lt. Keith Aslan of the Linden police said. "I honestly don't believe he was purposely out to hurt anyone."

    Most students had already been dismissed from school No. 2, Tyra said. Police checked other classrooms for weapons or injured people.

    Tyra said school will be open on Thursday.

    The building was secured by several officers. Linden police and the Union County Prosecutor's Office are continuing to investigate the incident.

    And that's why parents should teach their kids how to handle firearms!

    This is the reason to teach gun safety to kids early, even if the parents don't own a gun. Everyone should teach their kids not to touch any gun unless a parent or grownup is there.

    I started taking my daughter at 3 years of age to shooting competition. Never had a regret. She is now licensed to carry.

    I think this will be one to give Miss Teen from SC a run for her money in a couple of years.

    Didn't you notice it was the CRIME FREE state of New Jersey? They don't need guns to protect their citizens.....they elect public officials to see to the best interest of the people.....

    "new jersey mayor arrested"

    Copy and Paste the above to Google search engine.....

    I'm not sure I buy the 'found' gun either. This is one of the few examples where I think gun licensing would come in handy.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
