What's the "Sick Twisted Perverse" part you ask?" The fact that the boy's father or mother or older brother were not immediately arrested for suspected child endangerment and locked up. The boy took the gun from home, which should be enough to strip that home and all its occupants of their gun rights. Obviously they are irresponsible to the point of recklessness.A 10-year-old boy brought a loaded semiautomatic pistol to Central Elementary on Tuesday.
Police say the boy had the pistol in his backpack and was showing it to other children on the playground.
At about 1 p.m., the school’s principal called a school resource officer with the Helena Police Department saying she had confiscated a handgun from a student after hearing about the gun from other students.
“The student indicated he didn’t plan on hurting anyone with it,” Helena Police Chief Troy McGee said.
No other children reportedly had contact with the gun. The boy said he had taken the .25-caliber pistol from home, McGee said.
Police cited the boy for misdemeanor charges of bringing a loaded weapon to a school and carrying a loaded weapon within city limits, and referred him to juvenile probation.
The boy has been suspended from school while the incident is investigated, Superintendent of Helena Schools Bruce Messinger said.
