    School moves forward after shot fired in class | Carolina Weekly Newspapers

    How should the school and the justice system handle this? The kid is probably 8 years old.

    if I was the teacher.. Id probably beat the kid at first, take his gun, and then go to his home and beat the parents...

    I mean really... Im all for gun rights, but this is irresponsibility.. WTF is wrong with people.

    I think we should hold an anti-gun rally and congratulate the kid for bringing the issue to the forefront.:cool:

    Amazing how that school kept the incident low-key, but they didn't sugar coat it either.

    Any other school may have seen the teacher scream bloody murder, pull the fire alarm, evacuate the building, call in SWAT, and cancel classes for a week.

    I knew mud was kidding. But I hoped this wouldn't become a discussion on gun control. My interest is in juvenile justice. What should be his ounishment? Should he be allowed back in that class? How would the other parents react? And of course he's too young to be sent away. I don't know myself. Just curious what others think.

    Chanel, you know most folks can't comment on anything on here without blaming Bush or Obama for whatever ails them.


    First, the parents need to be held as accountable as the child. Where did he get the gun I wonder?

    Second, since he shot the gun off in class, I'm thinking some time off the rest of the school year, and maybe next year too, would be a good plan. Many parents won't feel comfortable sending their child to school if they think the boy will be there too.

    Third, where should he end up then? That's for the juvenile system to decide.
