A Washington County sixth-grader accused of bringing an unloaded gun to school has been ordered to participate in a detention alternatives program.In gun-friendly Virginia, they don't even care whose gun it is. 12-year-olds stand alone when it comes to gun crime. It doesn't matter if dad or older brother left the gun around.
Media outlets report that the boy has been suspended from Damascus Middle School. He was assigned to a home electronic monitoring system during a hearing Tuesday in Washington County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
School and court authorities say the boy is accused of bringing an unloaded .22-caliber pistol, a knife and several rounds of ammunition to the school Monday morning. He didn't make any threats to anyone at the school.
Another student saw the ammunition and told a teacher.
What's your opinion? When a juvenile is caught with a gun, shouldn't the most likely source be investigated?
