    Mother who warned authorities about son taking gun to school facing felony charge for neglect

    Mother who warned authorities about her son taking gun to school now facing felony charge for neglect | TheHill

    Mary York, an Indiana mother who last year notified authorities that her son was heading to school with a gun, turned herself in on charges of neglect and criminal recklessness.

    NBC News reports York was charged last week in connection to an incident in December in which her son exchanged fire with police officers at his school before he killed himself.
    ================================================== ===
    Indiana is the most conservative state in our country. I've been to Indianoplace more often than I care to count. But something in this story doesn't make any sense. She turned him in & she still got charged after he killed himself?

    Just because she is charged does not mean she will be convicted unless she enters a guilty plea of course. It is along the same logic of charging someone for a DUI if they let someone drunk borrow their car I suppose.

    I recall a story years ago where a fella walking along saw a house on fire and ran in, saving a child. When the police arrived they arrested him for unpaid tickets.

    Remember, "if you see something say nothing." That is the REAL legal standard.

    Allowing a minor access to a gun is a good deed?

    Put yourself in her shoes for a moment: your kid apparently has issues with dealing with reality. He has a gun. He's heading to school, possibly to kill some people. Are you going to tustle with him to remove the gun from him & risk getting shot & killed yourself?

    So her mistake was calling the police?

    No her crime was allowing her gun to be used by a minor. Calling the police after you rob a bank does not make you innocent.

    New york times adds a bit of information. It says that he was in a mental health institute, but the mother pulled him out because it was too expensive. And by the mother's testimony, the guns belonged to her boyfriend. If that's true, why is she being charged instead of her boyfriend who actually owned the guns?

    Both should go to jail for murder. There is only one way to get parents to be responsible with guns and that is to put some of the offenders away. I'm tired of these totally preventable tragedies. If you murder someone while driving drunk they put you away but somehow being irresponsible with dangerous weapons is different when the weapons are guns. The 2nd amendment does not give you the right to kill your children.
