This would not happen if people would just lock up there guns. Common sense. Even if children can get to it, if the gun is locked up they cannot function it.

If the legal age is 14 then why are we pushing for him to go to Adult court? I don't remember the specs of the story. At that age we need to know why he did it. Evaluations, I hope are being done for this CHILD.

COME ON, CAN ANY 12 YEAR OLD MAKE DECISIONS AS ADULTS? I HOPE THE JUDGE HAS COMMON SENSE & A SON TO KNOW THEY CAN'T MAKE SOUND DECISIONS. THEY MAY KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG BUT THEY CAN'T ALWAY JUDGE THE CONSEQUENCES, ESPECAILLY IF VERBAL OR PHYSICAL ABUSE IS A PART OF THE DAILY LIFE.

I feel so sorry for this kid. I have a 12 year old and can't imagine him going through this. :o( It is too bad that adults in his life couldn't have prevented this tragedy which will scar him for life no matter if he is tried as a juvenile or an adult.
