STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman has been charged with bringing a gun to her daughter’s middle school, although she intended no harm.
The Connecticut Post (http://bit.ly/1SBhpfm ) reports that Elizabeth Vargas went to Wooster Middle School in Stratford on Wednesday to pick up her daughter after getting a call from the administration about a disciplinary issue.
An assistant principal noticed a handgun in her waistband and called police.
The 37-year-old Vargas immediately gave police the unloaded gun, and her gun permit.
An apologetic Vargas explained that she was on her way to the shooting range when she got the call to go to the school.
She was charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds and released on a promise to appear in court on Jan. 27.
