More on the 8-Year-Old Gun Seller

Posted on the 02 May 2011 by Mikeb302000
NY1 reports on the follow-up to the story Dog Gone posted the other day.
A Queens man was arraigned late Friday after police say his son brought a loaded pistol to school and sold it to another student.
Police say Ignacio Galvan, 54, was arraigned on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, and endangering the welfare of a child.
Bail was set at $3,000.
If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
His son is charged as a juvenile with three counts of criminal weapons possession.
Wait a minute. They're charging the boy in juvenile court? Does that sound right to you? I guess we should be happy it didn't happen in Florida or Arizona where the dad wouldn't have even gotten a look.
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
