A kindergartner brought a gun to school in Swift County Tuesday morning, and authorities are investigating now to find out how such a thing could have happened.

No one was hurt in the incident at Northside Elementary school and everyone -- from the other students to teachers to law enforcement -- acted quickly to get the gun away from the young child.

Around 8 a.m., students alerted a teacher that the child, who police say is about 5 years old, had brought a weapon into the school building. The teacher quickly confiscated the gun.

Benson Police Chief Ian Hodge said there is no reason to believe that the kindergartner intended to cause any harm, although police are withholding details -- including where the gun came from and whether it was loaded -- while the investigation is ongoing.

Not too swift in Swift County. Did the youngster pass a background check?

More aptly: a bunch of ignorant gun owners out there.

You don't think there was anything dangerous here????

Many if not most guns fall into the hands of criminals because they aren't protected - face it, most gun owners are too irresponsible to properly secure their guns. This incident is further proof.
