Oooops, Mom Forgets To Take Gun Out Of Daughter Bookbag:First Grader Brings Gun To School

A retired NYPD detective nearly caused a tragedy on Tuesday when she put a loaded pistol in her daughter's backpack - and the girl inadvertently brought it to school.
Marian Brioso, 46, of Staten Island, put her .25-caliber Taurus handgun in her 6-year-old daughter's book bag, planning to remove it later, police sources said.
But Brioso, who's married to NYPD Capt. Paulino Brioso, forgot to remove the gun and her daughter unwittingly brought it to her first-grade class at the Transfiguration School in Chinatown.
"[The kid] went to school, opened up her bag and took it out. She said something, and a teacher came over," a police source said.
Cops couldn't say why Brioso put the gun in the bag.
School administrators called 911 after discovering the weapon, and police removed it without anyone being hurt, but parents and kids were shaken by the close call.
"No one was hurt - but maybe she don't know it's real gun and bang, bang, bang," said Steve Chang, 60, of Chinatown, whose son is a kindergartner at the MottSt. school.
