    The boy belongs in a state mental facility until the age of 18. 9 years old or not, you don't bring guns to school. Why is the mother being blame? Did she give her son the gun and told him to take it to school?

    Also if the little girl who got shot and her parents are illegal, they deserve no civil suites because she'd still be alive and well if they didn't sneak into the our country. It's bad enough that tax payers are footing the hospital bills.

    Ok I am going to take a crack at this. First let me say that I in no way condone the child handling the gun, or taking it to school. This is a very unfortunate event to say the least. My heart goes out to all families involved. As a parent I would be beyond furious that my child was shot at school or harmed in general.

    All that said the gun should have never been in the mothers home as she was a convicted felon. ( as the story reported)

    It should have not been able to be picked up by the son, but instead put in a secure place.

    The son should have not been in the custody of the mother as she has obvious drug problems. Not sure what the dads record is so can't say it should be him.

    I think the kid should have the crap scared out of him to see what happens when things like this occur. I think they have done the trick!

    The mom should be the one on trial. She had custody at the time. The gun came from her home. She is responsible for the gun being in the kids possession.

    In closing we should be enforcing the laws we have instead of making new restrictions. Why was no one checking on the kids welfare before the incident? The dad, the authorities? JMO

    Horse****. You have no idea what his mental capacity, thought process, or reasoning is or was. Kids do indeed sometimes do very stupid things for no good reason. There is nothing that has been presented to indicate he was bringing the gun to school for malevolent purposes. It could have been nothing more than he though it would be cool to show off. And you REALLY believe putting him away for 9 years is helpful...to anyone? Oh...and BTW...if you think 9 years in a mental facility 'helps' anyone or anything you are sadly mistaken. At best they make him a chemical zombie for the duration.

    Gotta love the tough guys. He's 9. His understanding of the world isn't quite what yours is. Although based solely on your comments, I may have to retract that.

    A few things:

    1. The kid didn't threaten anybody with the gun, take it out, or suggest any intent to use it. The gun went off in his backpack.
    2. We do not know why the boy had the gun. There could be 1,000 motives and the real one may not be sociopathic or dangerous.
    3. This kid is obviously remorseful/fearful/sad/distraught. The boy's character in court was not in any way indicative of of sociopathy or psychopathy.

    That said, I don't agree with the assault charge. Perhaps the others, but not the assult. Unless other evidence exists that isn't being reported, I just can't see it that way.

    I think that visitation from the mother should be stripped and before anybody with a history like hers (or the dad's) is allowed visitation with their children they should be mandated to go through thorough home inspections, parenting classes, and monitored visitations. That child never should have been left alone with the mother, gun or not.

    That poor girl is suffering and this poor boy is now likely to be forever haunted by what he did. I believe you should be accountable for your actions, but I can't see any good from putting this boy in a home or in juvenile detention.
