    “I think the cops should visit the parents for child endangerment.” Wouldn’t it be a good idea to find out where the kid procured the gun from first ? Maybe the student got it from another student, family member not living in the student’s home, found it, etc. Before slapping the cuffs on the parents some facts would be beneficial - sheesh!
