  1. I’m not judging but no 6yr old not taking their parents gun in their bagpack to school and shoot their teacher if that teacher didn’t viciously mistreat that 6yr old….I don’t care how innocent and pretty that teacher look…she must have done him real wrong because the story said he purposely shot her.
