Seven Year Old Found With BB Pistol At School

There's been another case of a child bringing a BB gun to an Onslow County school.

The latest happened this morning at Blue Creek Elementary School involving a seven year old student.

The Sheriff's Office says school officials called a school resource officer this morning after they found the BB pistol on campus. The pistol was seized and deputies will be taking out a juvenile petition on the child.

Two weeks ago, two BB pistols were found at another school a couple of days apart. Those cases, both at Southwest Elementary School, involved a 5 year old and a 7 year old.

    This is supposed to be a no tolerance and these two schools obviously enforce it. However at Meadowview School only a couple of miles away my son's friend had a BB gun waved in his face by a another student and the school chose not to punish the child. As a matter of fact the secretary almost sent the boy back to class without letting him even tell an administrator what happened. If another parent wouldn't have stopped the boy and asked what was wrong and made a scene the school wouldn't have ever found out. Then later it came out it wasn't the first time the same child was caught with a weapon at school. Apparently zero-tolerance doesn't apply to ALL of onslow county schools.

    Here's another article of a boy dying from being shot at close range and also tells the velocity of a BB pistol. This is a serious matter and the parents should be charged in these cases and the schools need to report these incidents to the parents of the other children.

    Naturally, this seven year old terrorist will now be added to the DHS database.

    On this, I have 2 girls that attend BCE. But, no one from the school called the parents to let us know what was going on. I had to learn of it by looking that .... That's not right.

    Yes a gun is dangerous. No a child of that age should not have access to one unsupervised. The big question to me is, at this age what makes a child want to carry a BB gun, knife, bat or whatever to school? I know this story isn't about knives or bats but something prompted the children to do it. Was it to be cool, were they scared of a bully, are they desensitised to violence by the media or movies etc, has glorifying the hoodies with guns made them want to emulate? Not enough info to know. That said, there is more here than meets the eye.

    I agree with you Ashley. Chuck WireWiggler and Gary...obviously you think this is not a big deal. It is a BB it is not a pistol with bullets...but a BB could certainly blind someone if shoot in the eye. CHILDREN should not be allowed weapons of any kind until they are old enough to handle them properly and with respect. The parents should be held accountable along with the child.
