This is truly disturbing.
Yesterday in a Houston, TX school, a 6-year-old boy dropped a loaded pistol from his pants pocket, and it discharged, resulting in a minor injury for himself, and injuries on two other students' legs or feet.
All three children are in stable condition at Texas Children's Hospital.
Investigators are currently looking into how the boy was able to obtain the weapon, and how he got it onto school grounds.
Here's what Texas Child Protective Services agency spokeswoman Gwen Carter had to say about it:
"It would be a concern about supervision, how a child gained access to a gun and was able to transport it. In cases like this, we look to the parents to try to understand what has happened."
Hopefully they're able to figure everything out, and ensure that the child is never again put in an environment where he has access to guns.
We're SO relieved that nobody was seriously injured or killed.
What do U think about this incident? Do we need even stricter gun laws to counter against this type of thing?
