1- A Nashville first-grader brought his mom’s .22 pistol to school. No charges filed:
A seven-year-old boy who brought his mother’s handgun to Inglewood Elementary School on Tuesday afternoon will not be charged by Metro Police.
The unnamed first grader showed the trigger-locked .22 caliber pistol to a classmate who then told a teacher about it, a Metro Nashville Police Department release said.
The gun was confiscated from the student’s backpack that afternoon. The boy was allowed to go home with his mother because of his age, police said.
His mother was not aware her son had taken the handgun and was “clearly angered” by what had happened.
OH well if mom was “angered” then that’s perfectly fine, right? I don’t expect charges to be filed against the child, you morons. I DO expect charges to be filed against the parents. You leave a gun where a) a child can get his hands on it, and b) can take it off your property without you even knowing about it? That’s the very definition of negligent behavior.
