    Utah 6th-grader in custody after bringing gun to school

    I tell ya, all of these nut jobs are coming out of the woodwork.
    His parents should do some time for this if the gun was found to come from the home.

    Ohh, and this doesnt surprise me coming from "UTAH".

    A sixth-grade Utah boy was in police custody late Monday after bringing a handgun to school, reportedly so that he could defend himself in the event of an attack, Granite School District officials said.
    "He has alluded in his defense that he brought it as a way to defend himself and his friends if there was a Connecticut-style incident at the school," district spokesman Ben Horsley said.

    I don't think he's a "nut job". I think he's an 11-year old child who is very scared.

    Re: Utah 6th-grader in custody after bringing gun to school

    When I was young one of the other kids brought a bullet to school, we managed to set it off in the bathroom. Not to mention the M80s we brought when we could get our hands on them, light em and flush them down the toilet (at school of course). There wasn't a boy in attendence who didn't have a pocket knife on them, and we all did stupid things with them (at school).

    However, I agree the parents should be charged if it's their weapon. It's just common sense, here we have this national tragedy, the first thing a thinking person would do is to check to see that their children did not have access to the parents' guns. Safety 101.

    I don't think he is a nutcase or a scared child. I think he was just a child that had access to a handgun and didn't understand the consequences of what he was doing.. I wonder how many more of these types of cases we will see in the future?
    Language is political. Each of us talks, listens, and thinks in his/her own special language that has been shaped by our culture, experiences, profession, personality, mores and attitudes. The chances of us meeting someone else who talks the exact same language is pretty remote.

    Oh my God and of course the relationship between this and their "belief system' will be totally lost on the gunnies.

    He neatly illustrates the falsehood that possessing a gun makes you and your friends safer. He can't be blamed for thinking that, it's the prevailing meme. The gun's owner should be charged with child endangerment or whatever.

    It's likely that there will be a number of reactionary events from the Connecticut disaster. When I read the MSN story on how they were reopening the schools in that area, my first thought was there's no way in hell my kids would be going back.

    His father and/or mother should be thrown in jail. There is absolutely no freakin' WAY!!! a kid his age should have access to a gun. What's the matter with gun owners?? WTH are they thinking???
