Boy stole gun and took it to school

A nine-year-old boy managed to steal a gun from a shop in Sandnes, western Norway. He then took it to school and proudly showed it off to his friends.

The friends in turn told a teacher at the local school, who took the gun away from the boy. School officials then called the police, according to newspaper Dagbladet.

It remains unclear how the boy stole the gun, a Czech pistol.

The proprietor of the shop from which the gun originated claims the boy stole the keys to the weapons cabinet and unlocked it himself. The boy said he was allowed to hold the gun, and then gave in to the temptation to put it in his pocket.

Police aren't pursuing the case, since the boy didn't use the gun to threaten anyone. The boy reportedly understands that he wasn't wise to steal weapons.

It was taken care of as it should've been. I wish the US were more like that....

... 2 minutes with a razor strap behind the woodshed used to cure this sort of thing.

Now there are no more razor straps and very few woodsheds.

That's "modern society" for ya!

:rolleyes: :uhoh: :scrutiny:

I wish my country would regularly show that much common sense...

The police won't go any further, as it is hard to find out exactly what happened in the store.
Guess they'll be a bit more carefull in the future... :rolleyes:
