An 8-year old girl was seriously injured when a 9-year old boy of her class shot her in the premises of the Armin Jahr Elementary School in Bremerton, Washington.

The Armin Jahr Elementary has about 400 students on its rolls and provides education from kindergarten through fifth grade students.

The girl, a third-grader Amina Bowman, has been seriously injured and has been taken to the Harborview Medical Center hospital.

Initial investigations tend to suggest that the gun, kept in the backpack of the boy, had gone off accidentally resulting in the accident.

Detailed investigations would obviously be carried out to arrive at the truth but, it is certainly strange how kids as young 9-years get the courage to bring dangerous firearms within the school premises.

It stands to reason that someone somewhere has slipped up.

Are the times of the Wild West returning when it was customary for people to be carrying guns in the holsters and when anyone who could not handle a gun was looked at with contempt?
