    Ohhhhhh!! Ouch!!

    The fact that guns are so accessible here in the United States, generally, is scary enough, but the fact that a kid that young manage to get access to a loaded gun and bring it to school is equally scary, if not scarier. Glad that the kid is being tried in Juvenile Court.

    I hope his PARENTS will be with him. They too need to be involved in this process. They need to be enrolled in
    Parenting Classes with special emphasis on how to address such issues with their children. Individual and Family Therapy would be a plus.
