Queens Man Is Arrested After Grandson Brings a Loaded Pistol to School (NYT) [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by mcar (a host of the General Discussion forum).

A 54-year-old Queens man was arrested after his grandson brought his loaded handgun to school in his backpack, the police said on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, police officers were called shortly after 1 p.m. to Public School 40, an elementary school on Union Hall Street in the Jamaica neighborhood, after faculty members discovered the gun and called 911, the authorities said.

The student, an 11-year-old boy in fifth grade, had a loaded Hi-Point 9-millimeter pistol in his backpack, the authorities said.

As I frequently say on DU, I believe parents (or grandparents) whose kids gain unsupervised access to their guns even once need to lose their kids or their visitation/access to their kids. And their guns and gun "rights" for life. Luckily, this being NYC, this grandad likely faces jail time for owning the illegal gun in the first place, but this is exactly how Sandy Hook and Columbine were facilitated by parents, out of ignorance or malice or stupidity or all three doesn't matter. Your gun threatens MY kids if you let children get near it.

A reminder because it's true: last year toddlers "accidentally" killed more Americans than "terrorists" but then, I say the gun nutter parents of these homicidal children *are* terrorists.
