Gun seized from 6-year-old kindergartner walking into school


Police say a handgun was confiscated from an Ohio kindergartner walking into school after someone reported that the 6-year-old boy appeared to have a heavy object in his pants.

Columbus police didn't disclose whether the gun was loaded Friday when it was safely taken from a student at Columbus Africentric Early College. A photo shared by police showed bullets with the seized firearm.

Police say the boy won't be charged because he's so young. They're investigating where he got the weapon.

WBNS-TV reports a principal said in a letter to parents that the student "will face appropriate discipline" but didn't specify what that would be. Principal Tyree Pollard reiterated the Columbus schools' zero-tolerance policy on weapons and urged families to talk with children about keeping such items out of schools.

    How about disciplinary action against the owner of the gun.

    This is outrageous that that gun was seized.

    How dare the school infringe on the second amendment rights of any six year old in America ?

    We need the NRA here.

    It says in the constitution that the right to keep and bear arms won’t be infringed - there is no lower age limit in the Constitution. This is an unconstitutional seizure of a weapon by those damn liberals !

    ( ps - my entire post is satire and sarcasm just in case anyone doesn’t get it )
