A Texas teen threatened to use a heavy arsenal of loaded guns, including an AK-47, he brought in a backpack to his San Antonio school Monday morning, prompting a lockdown after officials found the weapons.

Why wont you see this in the MSM? Because the parents did the right thing as responsible gun owners, and calmed a situation that could have turned out bad and no one was killed with an ar-15 shotgun grenade rifle bayonette.

Frankly,

I think the parents should be charged as well, yes they did the right thing.

After doing the wrong thing of leaving the guns accessible to a minor, who was having problems in the first place.


Far to many people lack the respect for Guns they deserve.

Enforce any negligent gun charges (though I wonder if TX has them on the books) It may not be a popular opinion, but as a person that Believes in the 2nd, every idiot that abuses it makes the rest of us look bad.

Still, it is strange that this story has not received more media attention. I wonder if any more information about the potential shooter and his parents will come out.

It states that the school district uses metal detectors. Are they refering to their own district or the Northside district that recieved the threatening email?

Because if they are refering to their own, then Im curious as to how he got the weapons in and stashed the AK???

Im a little curious how accesible they were. Obviously very, I mean did the kid figure out where the keys were to a safe, or something like that? I agree if it was negligence on the parents part they should be charged with endagering the welfare of a child.

Well at least no one got hurt that's the important part of the story.

I thought it was kind of dumb that he "made a list of demands" that he was planning to announce over the schools announcements. Does this kid think he's some kind of terrorist or something.

Unless I read this wrong this "kid" was 17 yes? Old enough to be charged as an adult correct according to the article? If thats the case I don't think securing the weapons was the issue. Not like it would be with a 10 yr old or early teen. He was old enough to know how to get into a gun safe I would imagine. Either way this could have went very bad and good thing it didn't. Props to the parents.

Amen.

This is yet another classic example of poor parenting, not a 'gun' issue.

I don't have kids myself, but if I ever do, I'd be damned positive to keep my guns hidden away. Like really, really hidden away.

I remember reading about an accidental shooting because a child got his parents gun because they had left in on top of the refrigerator.

Have to love the irresponsible idiots who cause problems for the rest of us.

the article states:


No schools in the district use metal detectors, she said.


You may have misread...

Anyway it is nice to see this kind of thing NOT being a school shooting.

Wait a minute. Your not a parent and your giving criticism about peoples parenting skills? From what in that article do any of us have any clue as to how these peoples parenting skills are? Anyway it takes a really strong man or woman to be a parent, and we are all screwups at being parents. Thats what makes it the best job ever, and some things are beyond parents control......

And it's also strange that people, when a story is given a whole lot of media attention, start screaming about the possibility of generating copy cats from the reporting and infamy.

Media can't win on that one, I suppose.

Why didn't we see it in the MSM?
Because nobody got shot, that's why. Nothing to sensationalize when nobody gets hurt.

Endangering a child? My daughter owns a 32 mag and she's not out of high school.

Am I in trouble?

Her grandad gave it to her.

Is he in trouble?

Oh my gosh...I just remembered...she has a POCKET-KNIFE as well.

run for the hills....

I have to ask. Just what the hell is a ar-15 shotgun grenade rifle bayonette?

Anything like a Mark 4 plasma rifle in the 40-watt range?


Yes, the parents should be charged with something, not sure with what at the moment though. Maybe the kid knew where the keys were so he could get at the weapons. If that's the case, then no, they shouldn't be charged.

You know, that thing Peirs Morgan hates and is instantly mentioned as the first weapon used when some idiot goes and kills people. Just like that fool in Georgia did. Every gun that liberals fear was mentioned before the news station had to be told it was just a shotgun.

"Just what you see here pal.":


Im conflicted, in the punishment of the parents. First, hes 17 and perfectly capable of being wholy and soley held responsible were anything to have happened. But the parents knew he was a f*ck up, i wouldnt keep firearms easily accessible if i had a kid i thought was going to do something stupid with them. There is some responsibilty there but like you said, how much?

In Texas the parents can be charged with criminal negligence for knowingly allowing access to their firearms by a minor. Most states have the types of laws on the books.

Funny...

A 17 year old gets access to his parents guns, threatens to kill people but they calm him down. Yay parents, parents are heroes, lets give them kudos.

A hypothetical person under 18 lives with parents who partake in a substance and no one is harmed. Boo parents, parents are bad, send them to prison. They are unfit to parent.

Ahhh legal hypocrisy. You are a fickle one.

How does one even get an AK-47?

Are they traded at gun shows or in pawn shops? No, don't tell me, I wouldn't want people to read how and then go and try to buy them.

I just didn't know they were that easy to buy.

If you want a real AK-47 you're looking at the price of a new BMW and fingerprinting and registering. "Real" AK's

If you're 18 and have no record you can buy a semi auto rifle chambered in 7.62x39mm that looks like an AK for anywhere between $400 and $3,000 depending on quality.

I know the term "AK-47" conjures up ridiculous imagery of sandy battlefields (don't be that guy) and what not but what passes for an AK-47 is not any different than a Mini-30.
