No reason or excuse will justify allowing a child to handle a machine gun. People get more and more full of themselves everyday with their sense of entitlement. We seem to be unable to govern our own common sense these days, or just too many people lack common sense altogether! I'm sorry, but that Dr./father, is just as much to blame as the people responsible for allowing children to handle their weapons at the expo. They should all be ashamed and held accountable by the law. Change the damn gun laws already!!!!! The government changed them once the Black Panthers started carrying weapons,they can be changed again, as many times as it takes to keep guns out of a child's hands in all situations!
How ironic you mentioned the Panthers. They were legally carrying firearms and their opinion of the police was dead on justifiable. In fact, the Panthers showed exactly why someone should have the right to own a gun. If you have never heard racist cops talk, then you just don't know.

And the fact that they changed the laws, and you acknowledge it, and that the connection is obviously race, should again let you know why you cannot infringe on the 2nd amendment.

In the spirit of SNL-

"jane you ignorant slut"

Please define 'these types' of weapons.

How many folks are killed with 'these type weapons' in America ?

Well at least with Obama in charge, now the U.S. military forces can tuck tail and run. And with Obama's anti-gun stance, an assault weapons ban shall come. Bravo!

The only tuck & run is you rosco. You hope Obama will decriminalize pedophilia so you can continue to do it legally.

It doesn't matter if you post it under your alter ego of jane the slut or yourself. It is still a stupid statement roscoe.

Please share how many people have been killed by 'assault weapons' vs...well...say knives and then present a valid argument as to why you think it will be progressive for this country to ban them.

to be honest, i think that no kids at all should allowed or to be around guns! Because if you tell them " dont touch " behind your back they will touch it if you havent educate them properly.. i know they let him handle a gun and should`ve examine it first before letting him use it. I wish that kid didnt have to die in such sad way he had alot ahead for his life..
But as really no kids allowed for these kind of events it too dangerous and anything can happen
You just don't start kids on micro-UZI SMGs. That is a bit crazy. When I was 8 i was shooting BB guns and eventually 22s when I was ready. Telling kids they can't touch guns makes them curious though. I think it is more important to teach them firearm safety so if they don't accidentally shoot themselves with it in case they do come across a firearm.

<quoted text> Now is the time for a change in the Supreme court. Bring back the assault weapons ban. Suspend the sales of weapons and munitions until further notice.
No. Bring back liberty and commonsense.

Repeal the Gun Control Act of 1968 and National Firearms Act of 1934. These are sensible steps in order to restore freedom in the United States.
