West Palm Beach, FL - A gun fell out of a kindergartner’s backpack in a Florida charter school classroom, but it didn’t fire and it is unclear how it got there.

Somerset Academy Lakes Elementary spokeswoman Lynn Norman-Teck said the child’s teacher immediately picked up the gun after it fell Thursday morning and no students were endangered.

Principal Clint Duvo said in a statement the child didn’t know how the gun got into the backpack and had no intention of bringing it to school.

Norman-Teck did not know whether the gun was loaded. Palm Beach County sheriff’s detectives are investigating.

The school opened in 2016. Somerset Academy is a large charter school company with sites throughout Florida.

If guns were not so readily available, this would never happen.

The trouble with your assessment of the incident is that there is no way to make guns less accessible. Working from that premise, the police have to find out how the gun got into the backpack, and punish the irresponsible person (not the gun).

There are plenty of ways to make guns less accessible to kindergartners.
