You don’t have to turn past page 4 in today’s Delaware County Daily Times to find 4 teens caught with guns. I would say that we may have a gun problem in the county.
And then there’s the criminal justice side of the matter. Three of the four teens caught with guns will be charged a juveniles and one will be charged as an adult.
- 1 teen stole a gun
- 1 teen shot a gun
- 2 teens brought a gun to school
Only one of these is considered an adult act according to the people responsible for charging kids as adults.
