Add 'and a lousy gun culture' onto that and you've got yourself a big from me.

Teaching kids gun safety and respect is still a far cry from leaving a ten year old home alone with an unsecured weapon. My brother was using and learning about guns at that age, but not in the home, and not without nonstop supervision.

An exception to the rule, the rule being that any gun anywhere is more likely a danger than it is a security.

Yeah, a ten year old going through the rest of his life knowing that he killed two people is hilarious. L-O-L in-fucking-deed.

Or it could have easily been a story about how two kids were left alone with a loaded handgun and one shot the other or themselves.

Ok Corian I was a bit extreme but look at the flip side he potentially saved his sibling or whoever else was with him right ?

Anyway, the thinking behind Child Access Prevention laws, as with many other public safety laws, is to minimize risk, not eliminate it. Every now and then there'll be one of these rare incidents where someone actually survives a car accident because s/he wasn't wearing a seatbelt, but it's not like anyone reading about it is going to think, "Damn it, wish the bastard had died so the rest of us don't look stupid for wearing seatbelts all the time." That slight possibility was already acknowledged and weighed in the balance when deciding whether to make seatbelt-wearing legally mandatory in the first place.

I wish you bleeding heart non gun owners would start leaving your doors unlocked, maybe you'll save the lives of some criminals that would otherwise try to break into armed citizens homes. What's yours is theirs right?


This is a ten year old kid that obviously knew how to gain access to a firearm and never had any malicious outcome until it was against someone who earned it.

Oh, pardon us for not being all gung-ho about a fucking ten year old shooting someone.

Criminals or not who took the bullet, I do not see it as a good thing at all.

You I may as well PM since most of what I'd like to discuss with you would be deleted.

i come back to work today and see this?!

look, this was an extraordinary case that i thought id post on here to discuss. wasnt really my intention to use it to defend gun ownership (kind of silly since the shooter was a 10 y/o) or say "look this does happen more often than you think" or whatever.

obviously this case could've ended many ways, all of them negative. the only good thing that came out of this was those punks might think twice before b&e again. i think the kid did the right thing, but i'm also glad he didnt kill them. i wouldnt want a 10 y/o to have to live with something like that. i dont think it's a good idea to have guns lying around where kids can access them, unless of course i feel that they are old enough and mature enough to treat them with respect and they know how to use it properly AND i knew i had to leave them alone for a while, AND i lived in a high crime area where i would want them to have access to it while i was away if something like that were to happen. obviously 10 years old is a little young for that type of responsibility, but in THIS case, luckily it worked out probably the best it could've (other than the kid NOT shooting and the punks being scared off)
