    Really? I mean, really - an 11 year old?

    His parents told him to take a .22 to school for "protection," and what did the kid do with it? What any other 11 year old would do, I suppose....Carry it around all morning, take it out of his backpack at recess, put it up to a little girl's head and tell her that if she tells anyone he has it he will kill her.

    A few hours later someone notified the teacher and the child was disarmed - but it's a stellar example of what can happen in the name of "self-protection."

    After reading that article I have one question.

    So let me get this straight:

    The police and school administrators release the name of the girl who was threatened, but not the name of the boy (or his parents) who made the threat?

    Makes sense in a society that allows assault weapons to be sold to the general public.

    More of a stellar example of what can happen when siblings mate.

    Utah, huh?

    So, alcohol in the hands of 11 year olds is far more dangerous. He could have brought a knife too. Whats next, ban kids from using knives at lunch to cut their meat? :rolleyes:

    edit: Oh yeah, if the teacher had a gun the kid could have been blown away.

    Little below the belt there....lol but still funny.

    I live in Uath about 20mins out of SLC and this story has more do to with the parents not locking their guns up....Now where have I heard this before....wait for it....oh yeah! It just happened in another town a few days ago...and 26 people are dead because of it...

    All the reports are still fresh and things can change, from my understanding the the kid told the school that his parents told him to bring the gun but he could just be lying to try and shift blame so he doesn't have to take it. He did pull the gun out at lunch time I think and did point it at a few students, so much for teaching your kid about guns and to respect them...

    IMO the 11 year old shouldn't be charged his parents on the other hand should have the book thrown at them....The boy should be put in PS and stay there till he's 18. The parents should have all their guns taken away and charged with a felony.

    Do people frequently go postal because of it? I know I would have trouble maintaining good manners if I thought someone was patronizing me.

    Wait? Let me get this straight.

    The kids parents encouraged an 11 y/o old to bring an unloaded handgun to school for protection? WTF :confused: :confused:

    What good is an unloaded gun gonna do? Should have given him a loaded one :eek: ;)



    I jest I jest. What a messed up world we live in. Still, something tells me that there is more to this story then meets the eye. I'm betting that the kids parent didn't have anything to do with it. Jr. probably took one of his parents guns out of the home without their permission and only later blamed them when he got busted.

    That's my guess. BUT, if the parents did indeed offer it, they're morons; criminally negligent morons.

    At the time of the original story it was not known if the gun was loaded or unloaded.

    Seeing as how it was unloaded makes me wonder what might have happened had certain lawmakers and posters here had gotten their way and teachers were armed - one dead kid holding an unloaded gun, I imagine.



    That may be true....but it still begs the question - why wasn't the gun locked up and out of reach of an 11 year old?

    Only problem I have with the story is that we are accepting what the kid says as the truth ... I think he is lying. I think the parents are irresponsible for him having access to it ... but I think he is lying and it was all his idea.

    Having worked in the LE for the past 21 years, I can tell you (with a heavy heart) that this is an all to common problem. In this case, we're lucky he just brought an unloaded gun to school. Usually the case in situations like this where the are unsecured in the home, the outcome can be catastrophically different. :(
