That lesson: it’s wrong to be a typical boy.
His mother, Kristy Jackson, wrote about the incident in a Facebook post that subsequently went viral. The boy, Hunter, was learning about guns and gun safety from his grandfather, a police officer, according to Jackson. He must have picked the shell casing off the ground and smuggled it into school, unbeknownst to his parents.
When Jackson came to the school—A Place for Growth—to pick up Hunter, she was told he had brought a bullet to school. Mom was hastily escorted to the principal’s office, where she soon discovered that the school’s administrators know less about guns than a 4-year-old: what Hunter had in his pocket was a shell casing, not a bullet.”
