BIGSTOCK POLICE LIGHTS

Charges are pending against a firearm owner after a 5-year-old boy mistakenly brought a backpack with a gun in it to Anne E. Moncure Elementary School in Stafford on Thursday morning.

The Stafford County Sheriff's Office said the firearm was discovered inside the student’s backpack during class and it was confiscated by staff. Deputies responded and seized the gun.

The investigation revealed the student had inadvertently taken an adult’s backpack from the vehicle instead of his own during drop-off. All parties were cooperative with the investigation.

The sheriff's office said charges are pending against the firearm's owner, but did not say what those charges are.

Owner needs to be castrated / sterilized if so stupid they have a backpack with a gun in it that their OWN kid is allowed grab. But we can not make people responsible for anything anymore.
