1st Graders Take School Gun After Seeing The Case Was Unlocked
According to The Huffington Post, Ohio school officials were shocked when they discovered that two first graders got their hands on a gun intended for school safety from an unlocked box in an administrative office.
The 6-year-old students reportedly managed to snag a gun belonging to the transportation director. She left her gun in a a case (unlocked) in her office near Highland Elementary School in Sparta — along with her grandson and the first grade daughter of an assistant — as she went to use the bathroom for a minute. When the director returned, the gun was on a desk and the two children were playing nearby as if nothing happened.
The transportation director was removed from the school’s concealed weapons program and suspended without pay for three days, according to the newspaper.
