Authorities were trying to determine Friday how an 8-year-old boy obtained a loaded handgun that was found in his backpack by school police after he made threats toward a classmate.

The third-grader at Sharp-Leadenhall Elementary School, a small Baltimore City school for special-needs children, was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged as a juvenile with handgun possession. School officials said the boy was “acting suspiciously” and staff began closely monitoring his behavior, which led to a search of his backpack and the discovery of a .380-caliber handgun.

The family’s 7-year-old boy, who was intentionally unvaccinated against measles, was exposed to the virus while traveling in Europe. When he returned home to San Diego, he unknowingly exposed a total of 839 people, and an additional 11 unvaccinated children contracted the disease. Three of those infected were babies, too young to have yet received the measles vaccines, and one of the babies was hospitalized for three days with a 106-degree fever, according to a report to be published in the April issue of Pediatrics.

I see that another DUer got one of Palin’s pathetic punks shouting at them. Me, too. I was hoping I’d be the first! This also happened at a traffic light – the guy pulled up behind me, hit his horn, swung into my lane as I was the only one at the light at the time, and rolled down his window.

“Hey asshole! How’s that hopey-changey thing working out for you?”

“It’s working great! I paid less in taxes this year. How about you?”

(double take)

“Yeah, you paid less, too, didn’t you? Come on, you can admit it! I can tell! Guess hopey-changey worked for you, too, didn’t it?”

(snarl)

Light turned green and he TOOK OFF. I laughed the whole way home.

So … goodbye Heidi and Spencer … hello White Wolf and Running Bear, respectively.

A rep for the couple tell us Spencer decided to give up his previous moniker, King Spencer, because it was “too much of a burden to have to carry the weight of royalty. ”

Tell you what, Bill and Laura. Come and talk to us again about how nasty and wrong hateful talk from the left is when:

– A liberal walks into a church and opens fire on the congregation because they’re all a bunch of conservatives and he wants to kill as many right-wingers as he can.

– A liberal walks into another church and shoots a doctor in the head.

– A liberal shoots three police officers who come to his door because he fears the president is going to take his guns away.

– A liberal walks into the Holocaust Museum and shoots a guard because he hates Jews and believes it’s time to start a race war.

– A liberal walks into the Pentagon and opens fire because he believes the government is plotting against its citizens.

– A pack of gun-loving liberals forms a plot to kill law-enforcement officers and start a revolution.
