But American kids need armed protection. What better way to cater than to let them carry their own. after all, they're citizens too.

So how many laws were broken?

I guess we just a couple more laws then we'll all be safe.

Early education. Early education. Early education.

Little kids back in 1800s probably didn't bring loaded guns to school, but they all knew how to properly use them. Now we glorify guns in video games. I'm not saying they create mass murderers or anything, but they certainly take the level of danger out of guns for many kids who see them as a toy or fun. We need to get back to the basics here.

Well especially in Queens, I'm not surprised this child brought gun. Those schools are dangerous for some kids. That area is especially rough.

I think the point would be that the kid got a hold of a parents weapon and took it to school, highlighting some of the issues trying to be addressed with training proposals.

What idiot parent leaves a loaded gun anywhere a child could get access to it... without them even noticing...

See? That's an argument for both sides.

The gun was probably purchased legally, so gun laws wouldn't have stopped it
Clearly the person who owned the firearm was not maintaining it in a responsible manner.

Now, how on earth would anyone have stopped that? gun laws? Maybe, maybe a mandatory gun safety and responsibility course might have clued the parent in.

Who knows, maybe the kid is trained at 7 to handle a weapon, that's beside the point. This right here is how school shootings happen, and something needs to be done to at least work towards solving it. One angle of that would be making it harder for guns to end up in the hands of a child like that.

Thank goodness no one was harmed, and hopefully the kid won't be scared for life over this.

Hopefully the kid won't be scarred for life? Say what? From the gun or the bullies?

The kid brought the gun to the school for a reason.

He was probably afraid of the bullies.

He won't be scarred for life from the gun, he's going to be scarred everyday from the people who attend there.

I place any bets on it.

If your going to try to use the theory protection from a gunman entering the school, I highly doubt it.

I am thinking that perhaps this little boy's reason for bringing the gun to school..was not to hurt anyone...but to protect himself and his friends.

Really...I think we all know his parents are in big trouble.

Hmmmmm......I wonder if the DHS is going to step in and charge the little kid with domestic terrorism? A few years ago the kid would have been suspended from school for a few days and probably receive some sort of punishment at home, but nowadays it wouldn't surprise me if this child were charged with a felony.
