A six year old boy brought a gun to school and injured himself and two others in the cafeteria when it fell out of his pocket. Luckily, no one was badly hurt, but the incident raises questions we have all heard too many times before- How can we protect our kids from gun violence at school? How can we enforce stricter gun laws so that young children can’t easily bring guns into their classroom?

A kindergartener brought a gun to his elementary school and was among three students injured by fragments when it dropped from his pocket during lunchtime and accidentally fired, officials said.

One bullet discharged about 11 a.m. local tie in the school’s cafeteria, spraying fragments at the students, said Houston Independent School District Assistant Police Chief Robert Mock.

“Either some type of chips off the floor, or it could be pieces of the round that discharged,” Mock said. “They had some cuts and stuff on their legs, they don’t appear to be life threatening.”

Two 6-year-old boys, including the one who had the gun, were wounded in the foot, said district spokesman Jason Spencer. A 5-year-old girl also suffered a foot injury, Spencer said.

Live video aired by KPRC TV showed children being loaded onto stretchers. The station later reported on its website that the students were being treated for injuries, ranging from powder burns to scrapes. All were sitting up and appeared to be talking with emergency personnel. Upset parents rushed to the scene.
