I just heard on the news that the parents of the 6-year-old boy from Virginia who shot a teacher made a statement regarding their son. They say he suffers from mental health issues and one of the parents accompanied their son to school every day. The day of the accident neither of them were able to bring him to school. They stated they were very sorry the accident occurred.
As I heard this, my question was, why was a loaded gun left out where a 6-year-old could grab it and bring it to school? How could a 6-year-old child with mental health problems be able to grab a gun from his parents’ house and bring it into his school without being detected and shoot a teacher?
