11-year-old charged with murder...
« on: October 05, 2015, 02:11:32 PM »
...of 8-year-old who was shot after arguing about puppies

What a waste!

Apparently, the 11-year old was a bully and had access to an unsecured 12-gauge shotgun that was kept in a closet by his father.

The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Is this the appropriate place for me to write about parental responsibility, particularly in teaching a child not to access the family's gun without supervision?
Is this the appropriate place for me to write about the parental responsibility of knowing your child's character flaws, and carefully securing the household guns if he is uncontrollable?
Is this the appropriate place for me to write about the need to publickly immolate the negligent parents alive, after first disemboweling them, of course?

It would not hurt my feelings to have the father held responsible.
