I wonder if there is any update on the investigation? How exactly are they investigating a 7-year-old?

What about all of the passengers, who are caught by the TSA bringing loaded guns onto commercial aircraft? They always come up with the most ridiculous excuses when they are caught, namely " I didn't know it was in my luggage". In some cases, juries have actually bought those asinine arguments, and have acquitted some defendants.

Why would a jury be involved? It's not a crime to board an aircraft with a weapon.

Great comment!

You have always backed arms in school to protect the students. This student seemingly had no criminal record, no psychiatric history. He is a perfect example of nra backed armed protection in school.

What is scary is how a 7 year old could get hold of a loaded gun. Didn't these morons learn anything from Sandy Hook & the subsequent tirades & rantings? Don't investigate the child, pull him & siblings out of the home & arrest the parents.
