From an article:
Memphis, Tennessee Police have confirmed that a 5-year old fired a gun in the school cafeteria just after 8:00 a.m. on Thursday morning and is in police custody. The gun, according to officials, was in the child’s backpack and discharged.
No injuries were reported. But the police have the little kid in custody, so Memphis is safe from another gun happy thug. Why the parents aren’t in custody is yet to be determined.Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
