I aplogize for the above post - I was a bit angry and frustrated and needed to let off steam.
I would have deleted/edited it - but for some reason was unable to do so.

In any case, I apologize if I offended anyone.

A gun is just a tool, the same thing would have happen if the boy was playing with a screwdriver.

Now that I got that out of my system.

It's a tragically sad story, one that happens far too often. Irresponsible gun owners, bad parents, a really screwed up gun culture.

1. where where the parents when all this shit was going on? if they werent home, what kind of parents leave a 9 and 2 y/o home alone?

2. what kind of parent leaves a loaded gun where a 9 y/o could get it?

let's face it, there are a LOT of stupid people in this country. im pro-gun ownership and all, but you know, the more i think about it the more i wonder if all these stupid people should really have guns.

i say 3 cheers for giving all the smart people the guns!

You can only alter posts for an hour after you make them here, so that's why you couldn't edit.

Seems like a thread designed purely to rile the other side up and get into another long winded back and forth that we've seen 100 times before. good times

Six Dead in Albuquerque Office Shooting - CBS News

I am sure these six victims had their cell phones
hopefully they had a chance for a last tweet.

"I've been shot, bleeding out, last of my 140 chars, shout out to GaGa"

next time choose a gun, better coverage

The kinds of parents who are allowed to purchase guns.

i just found this out seconds ago.

apparently this morning there was a shootout on one of the popular tourist beaches here on st thomas. there was a funeral going on at the cemetary next to it. a man attending the funeral was killed as well as a 14 y/o tourist girl. this will get ugly

http://stthomassource.com/content/ne...eaves-two-dead

this place is getting out of hand. i've been snapped awake 2 nights this last week by nearby gunfire. and im not talking about 1 or 2 shots, im talking MAGAZINES, SHOOTING EMPTY THEN RELOADING FOR MORE.

funny we have probably the strictest gun control in the US, but there are so many illegal guns here that the laws dont mean shit except keeping law-abiding people from being able to protect themselves from these thugs.

even I, a fed, have to jump through so many hoops to bring a non duty firearm down here it's pathetic. and going through the police department to do all this shit is asking for trouble, since they are EXTREMELY corrupt.

OK I'm all for stricter gun laws but you seriously cannot make assumptions about how parents raise their kids based on gun ownership. Is everyone that doesn't own a gun automatically a contender for world's best parent? My dad has always owned guns, and growing up I never even knew where they were, let alone how to load or use one (nor did I want to). To this day I don't know where they were stored, only that it must've somewhere safe because my mom is even more anti-gun than I am and she put up with the hunting rifles.

Personally I think there needs to be much more strict rules for who can own guns, how they are purchased, how they are stored, and what types of guns are available.

Me, I just "pack" a loaded German shepherd dog.

My father had many guns, I never touched them or wanted anything to do with them. Many times maybe they weren't even locked up-who knows, I have no way of knowing. It was just a given that we were not to have anything to do with them. My brothers learned how to shoot but that was at gun clubs under supervision, the guns were never touched at home. I have held a gun but I've never fired one-it scares me too much.
