Katy, Texas Gun Incident

Posted on the 07 April 2011 by Mikeb302000
The Houston Chronicle reports.
A Katy ISD [Independent School District] high school student brought a loaded weapon onto the campus and showed it to other students, authorities said.
The incident happened about 1 p.m. Tuesday at Mayde Creek High School, 19202 Groschke. The student, who has not been identified, kept the gun in a backpack and was showing it off to other students in a restroom.
Another student notified school officials. Katy ISD police confiscated the weapon and arrested the student, officials said.
The school sent a letter home to parents notifying them about the incident.
In addition to any criminal charges the student now faces, bringing a weapon onto campus is grounds for expulsion, Katy ISD officials said.
They sent a LETTER home to the parents, are you kidding me? Wouldn't a squad car to arrest the parents and older siblings until their involvement can be determined, have been better? Are gun rights in Texas so sacred that we ignore the possible involvement of the dad? Isn't that where most adolescents in the Lone Star State learn about the gun culture, that guns are cool, that you can impress your friends in school with them?
Pro gun extremists are all for individual responsibility except when it reflects upon them and their gun rights. The family that raises kids to love guns and to disregard laws they don't like should be punished, in addition to the kid. Families like that have proven they are incapable of responsibly owning guns and should cease to own them.
