The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office in Kansas says a first-grade student (not pictured) brought a loaded handgun to school but the child didn’t display it or make any threats, Hutch News reports.


An armed child flashing gang signs, yo.

[su_center_ad]Again, the little feller did not make threats so it’s all cool. We know how those first-graders are the real threat.

According to the Topeka Capital-Journal, the kid “self-reported” having the gun on Monday at Indian Hills Elementary School in Topeka.

An officer on the scene secured the gun.

Shawnee County Sheriff’s Maj. Phil Blume said the weapon was loaded but there were no rounds in the chamber.

According to news release from the Sheriff’s Office, the child brought the gun from home.

It wasn’t made clear as to how the student gained access to the handgun, but “it was brought from the student’s home,” a release from the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office said.

Law enforcement officials were contacted and the student’s parents were notified. Naturally, there are no criminal charges pending.

So it’s either the little kid’s fault, the parents or the gun walked into the child’s backpack all willy nilly.

And yet, there are no charges pending.

    I’m sure the wing-nuts will make their perfunctory comments here or elsewhere, that this child has 2nd amendment rights and should be able to open carry. #smfh! 🙁

    Hey I thought normalizing guns around children was supposed to be a good thing. you know guns and dolls and legos all the same right?

      Yeah, exactly. What happened to take the mystery out of it and…..blah, blah

    She’s a good 1st grader with a gun prepared in case any bad 1st graders with a gun come around.

    Seriously, until they start prosecuting gun owners for reckless endangerment, or SOMETHING, this type of stuff will continue.

    Thank God no one was hurt.

    First, the little girl in the stock photo is adorable – and she’s only flashing Kansas gang signs which translate into “I worship the Koch bros”.
    Secondly, what the hell is is a police officer doing on campus of an elementary school?
    Uggh, Kansas.

    Sorry….you have to shoot it at someone(Hopefully hitting your target) to qualify for the NRA Shooter of the Month Award.

      It’s difficult to teach blood lust to a 1st grader. Maybe convince them the gun can be used to stop other kids from laughing at them.

        Last month we had a 3 year old that shot her mother with a pistol she found under the sofa

          I said it’s difficult. I didn’t say that some parents aren’t up to the challenge.

            Mom is up for the Darwin award too

    She’s a baby.

      the parents aren’t, charge them for negligence and endangerment

    It’s probably a simple mistake. Her toy My Teddy’s Got a Glock! probably just dropped it.

    Uhh… Can we talk about gun control NOW?!?
