I’m just shakin’ my dayumm head. What is wrong with these parents these days? What are they really
Another pistol-packin’ grade-schooler in the news, this time in Queens, NY. This one had a lil game though.
Ignacio Galvan, 54, was arraigned last night in Queens Criminal Court on charges of criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. He was being held in lieu of $3,000 bail.
Why? Because his 8 yr old son took a loaded 9mm pistol to P.S. 107, and sold it to a classmate for $3.50. It had three live rounds in it. (Another one was found on the floor at the school.) To add to his plate, he admitted buyin’ the piece off the streets (illegally). Guess he had to, since the serial number had been scratched off. He says they bought it for protection and kept it in the garage, but bought it inside recently because someone had tried to break in.
This came to light when the lil boy who bought the piece took it home, his mother found it in his backpack and called the school, who told her to bring it and the boy in. They called the people.
Thank God, no one was hurt. This is the second incident like this that turned out ok. But people can’t (and shouldn’t) count on that.
I don’t understand why these parents don’t get it that guns are not toys and should be kept out of the reach of some grownups, let alone children. I remember when the news was filled with stories of children accidentally killin’ their siblin’s and schoolmates with guns they found just layin’ around their homes or in unsecure places with the safeties not intact.
The lil gun dealer is facin’ three counts (over one gun?) of weapons possession, and the lil boy who bought it, was suspended for a week. Mom if fightin’ that, sayin’ her baby thought he was buyin’ a fake gun. I wonder if the lil gun dealer thought he was sellin’ a fake gun?
Normally, three strikes your out. I hope that we don’t have a third incident of this irresponsible shyt. It may not turn out so good…
