Hero Bus Driver Disarms 12-Year Old

ABC News reports
A bus driver in North Carolina is being hailed a hero after convincing a gun-wielding seventh grader to hand over his loaded gun during a terrifying bus ride. 
The 12-year-old boy tried to hijack the school bus to Washington so he could shoot government officials, witnesses told ABC News Charlotte affiliate WSOC-TV.
Driver Evans Okoduwa said today that while was scared during Monday's incident he knew that if he didn't get the child to drop his weapon he "could have been shot."
Where do you think he got ideas like that, to kill politicians? I'll bet he got them from the same place he got the gun, from daddy?
The older the juvenile offender is the harder it is to blame the parents, I suppose, but don't you think there should be some attempt to determine what went on in the family?
