Dickinson High School near Wilmington, DE student had loaded gun

Given that Bloomberg is collecting also sorts of data on guns at school, I have collected some cases.  Is it likely that this 17-year-old has had gang connected activity?  From the Delaware News Journal:

But following the boy's arrest, Shavack said, the investigation revealed that he already had a past felony conviction and was prohibited from possessing a firearm. Details of his past offense were not disclosed.
The gun seized from his backpack was "a fully loaded Kel-Tec 9mm Luger semiautomatic handgun with the serial number obliterated," Shavack said. . . .

Well lets see, several Federal felonies right there: felon with a gun, obliterated serial number, etc. Ideal case for the US Attorney to prosecute in the no parole, mandatory sentencing federal courts, no?

But, we'll see a slap on the wrist, "poor yoot"- out in several months, state court prosecution.

If our dear president and his AG are serious about "gun violence", then start making examples of these perps, and bring the weight of the US Government on gun offenders, instead of working to curtail the individual rights of the law abiding.

I have a buddy who is a LEO in a gang infested city, he's told me of more than one occasion where he's busted a "felon in possession" where the feds refused to pursue prosecution. What's the point of having a federal law when it's not enforced or used to make examples of those breaking it?
