7 year old student brings loaded gun to school in Queens, N.Y.

7 year old brought a loaded .22 caliber handgun to elementary school

A 7 year old elementary school student is under investigation after a school official found a loaded gun in his backpack Thursday morning.

Wave Preparatory Elementary School, in Far Rockaway, Queens, was placed on lockdown, and school safety officials confiscated the .22 caliber handgun. The New York Post reports that the boy’s parents were notified and he was seen leaving the school with a female relative, and “smiled cheerfully as he went into the police van with her.”

This news comes in wake of a national gun crisis after President Obama on Wednesday signed 23 executive proposals into law to curb gun violence in America.

The proposal would require universal background checks for all gun sales and a ban on both military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.
