    A 6-year-old boy in Ohio was discovered to have entered school on Friday with a gun, police said.

    The weapon was recovered after officials were notified of the situation at Africentric School, which educates kindergarteners through 12th graders, the Columbus Division of Police said on Facebook.

    “School staff was advised by a caller that a student was walking in with what appeared to be a heavy object in their pants,” police said. “’The student was encountered at the entry door and a handgun was quickly recovered from the student.”

    The gun was seized by the CPD High School Resource Officer, police said. The boy will not face charges as a result of his age, they added.

    Authorities are investigating the incident.

    Principal Tyree Pollard addressed the matter in a letter, informing families that “the student who brought the weapon will face appropriate discipline,” according to WBNS-TV.

    While recognizing the school district’s “Zero Tolerance policy on possession of any kind of weapon, real or fake,” Pollard encouraged families to talk with children about the sort of items that are not allowed at school, the report said.

    “The consequences of having a weapon outside of school can be even more extreme. Whether in the neighborhood or at home, young people at every age need to understand the dangers of having a gun, taser, or other type of weapon - even fake ones that look real,” Pollard wrote, according to WBNS-TV. “We need families to have thoughtful age-appropriate conversations about the types of items that are never appropriate to bring to school.”

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Piss poor parents. The school should have called the parents in and had the police arrest them for child endangerment unless the kid got the gun from someone else. I have probably 40 guns and I would never leave one where a six year old could get to it.

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    Are we to guess the race? The name of the school seems to suggest it's mostly if not all blacks.

    That kid will choose a more appropriate weapon next time around. And there will definitely be a next time.
