A six-year-old little boy brought a loaded gun to school and shot a teacher just this last Friday. I’m sure you heard or read about this on the news. Like probably all of you, I am in shock at how this could happen. That teacher, Abby Zwerner, age 25, is still in the hospital in serious, but stable, condition. I think we all hope for Abby’s swift and complete recovery.
How the hell could this happen? What drives a six-year-old child to take a loaded gun to school and shoot a teacher with it? I know, people are crying out for the blood of the parents, and I get it. We’re going to talk about that. We didn’t have this kind of thing happening when I was in school, and I’m not that old. It wasn’t that long ago. What is happening today where that kind of thing–A SIX YEAR OLD–could do this??
There are also calls for increased “Red Flag” laws in the wake of this horrible event. I’ve been looking up Red Flag laws…and while we need to solve the problems that lead to shootings, this is not a good “solution”. We’re going to discuss why, specifically. Yeah, we’re going to go into some detail.
