First Grader shoots teacher in gun-control-happy NewPort News, Virginia

Recommended Posts

This should be a lot of fun for everyone here. Finger wagging from the gun grabbers and a lot of I TOLDYA SOs from the Constitutionalists.


Virginia teacher shot by 6-year-old identified, parents demand action

A 6-year-old first-grader at an elementary school in Newport News, Virginia shot a teacher on Friday afternoon during an altercation in a classroom, authorities said, leaving her with "life-threatening" injuries and renewing calls from parent's for greater classroom safety and oversight. 

The 6-year-old boy shot 30-year-old Abigail Zwerner, a first-grade teacher at Richneck Elementary School. She was rushed to Riverside Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries following the incident.

Here's the victim:

Abby Zwerner was shot in the abdomen Friday by a 6-year-old student who had brought a gun to school. The 30-year-old teacher remained in critical condition until Saturday morning when police shared that she was in "stable" condition following the altercation. 

Apparently Newport News is no stranger to gun violence in public schools.

Before Friday's incident at Richneck Elementary School there were shootings at two other schools within the Newport News Public Schools system that shook the community in the past 17 months.

In Sept. 2021 a 16-year-old fired several shots in a busy hallway inside Heritage High School during lunchtime, injuring two 17-year-olds

In December 2021, 18-year-old Demari Batten fatally shot 17-year-old Justice Dunham in the parking lot of Menchville High School after a football game, also within the Newport News Public Schools system.

For the numbskull gun grabbers, GUN LAWS WERE VIOLATED HERE.


Persons who may not own a gun in Virginia

Gun ownership is a protected Second Amendment right in Virginia, however, gun control laws restrict the definition of who may own a gun in the state. It’s easier to start with a list of those who may not own a gun. You must be 18 years of age or older to own a firearm. It’s illegal for anyone under age 18 to own a gun.

Other persons ineligible for gun ownership are those who were involuntarily admitted to a facility for mandatory outpatient treatment, who voluntarily entered a facility, or a person who was found incompetent to stand trial and likely to remain so for mental health reasons. Persons acquitted of a crime because of insanity and who were committed to the commissioner of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services may not own a gun.

Those who are legally ruled incapacitated or incompetent, or who are subject to a protective order may not own a gun. Persons convicted of two misdemeanor offenses for controlled substances within a 36-month consecutive period, who are subject to an emergency substantial risk order, or who have been convicted of a felony may not own a gun.

Those adjudicated as juvenile delinquents 14 years and older for specific violent crimes, and those in the class under the age of 29, who would have faced felony charges as an adult may not own a firearm in Virginia. You must be 18 years or older with no record of felony convictions, drug-related convictions, mental health diagnoses, or record of violent crimes as a juvenile 14 years and older to be eligible to legally own a gun in Virginia. The laws attempt to prohibit gun ownership for those most likely to commit a violent crime with a firearm.

Obvious questions here:


2. Was this kid in some kind of youth gang? Do they even exist at that age?

3. What put the idea of shooting a teacher in the mind of this little animal? (That's right, snowflakes. Regardless of age, if you shoot a teacher you're an animal.)

4. If this animal's parents (probably a single mother) LEGALLY owned that gun, is there any legal liability the city of NewPort News can use to go after the parent? (For the legal buffs here, that means researching local appellate court case law to see if parents can be held at least civilly responsible for the actions of their kids.

5. Assuming the child didn't tell the parent he was going to shoot a first grade teacher, the kid obviously took the gun without permission. Is the parent guilty of breaking ANY gun laws, either in Newport News or the blue state of Virginia?


Have fun, folks.

Only in Amurica could a first grader get his hands on a loaded firearm. 

But yall need more guns to protect yourself from armed first graders.

Actually, there are African warlords who put AK47s into the hands of first grade age kids they have drafted into military service. During the Vietnam War, there were a lot of first grade age kids drafted as soldiers into the Viet Cong.

But how could a first grader have gotten his hands on a loaded firearm in GUN CONTROL HAPPY VIRGINIA?

Answer that.

How come gun control didn't prevent this first grader from taking a loaded pistol to SCHOOL?

Answer that.

Do you ever visit reality?  Maybe just to say hi once in a while?  A 6 year old in a gang?  LOL

Now I’m convinced that you are just playing a caricature of an “American conservative” just for shits and giggles.  

This only proves my contention that you (a) never made it out of high school and definitely (b) never attended even a liberal college.

The haiku writing, organic clothing liberal professor who taught our Sociology class seemed almost orgasmic when wagging his finger at us about street gangs and how they are used as a substitute for families that somehow Ronald Reagan broke up with his tax cuts to the rich. (By the way, families were broken up by the Great Society welfare plans of Lyndon Johnson.)


Also, it's apparent that you lived a sheltered life and never got within miles of ANY neighborhood or school where youth gangs thrived. (As a sub working up in Orlando, I worked SEVERAL schools with gangs, including elementary schools.)

But by all means, stick to ignorance. It's a lot less work than actually learning something.

A 6yr old gets hold of a loaded gun, and this guy thinks gun control is somehow to blame?

Told you he's clinically insane.

Actually, a poster with a six year old brain apparently has zero reading comprehension.

I NEVER said gun control was to blame for that animal bringing a gun to school.


Jeez! You need to learn to read, son.
