2 Pa. elementary school students face discipline for toy guns

Published: Wed, September 3, 2014 @ 10:40 a.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two Pittsburgh elementary school students face discipline after one student shot another with a toy gun that fires plastic pellets, and another student was also found to have a similar gun.

Mercedes Howze, spokeswoman for the Pittsburgh Public Schools, says the incidents happened on a school bus Friday and involved students from Pittsburgh Liberty, a K-5 school.

A fourth-grader allegedly shot his gun, hitting another student in the leg. The student wasn’t injured.

The student who shot the gun told school officials he got the toy from another student, who was found to also have a similar toy gun.

School police continued their investigation today to find out where the students got the toy guns. Officials wouldn’t say what kind of discipline the boys will face.

Yea, graveyards are full of children that have been killed by low speed, plastic pellet wounds in the legs. I can save the police a lot of investigation time. They probably got the toy guns in a legal TOY STORE! I would take a guess that the gun violence in America is more the product of fatherless, dysfunctional families than kids playing with toys on a bus.
