NRA Fanatics insist that guns locked in a safe won't keep you safe....

Brilliant!

I thought making it illegal for children to drive was supposed to keep us safe.

Prison for the parent who owned the gun. Allowing a child to get a hold of a gun is almost the same as the parent shooting the child themself.

An empty gun is worthless in the dark...... Having to search a safe is equally worthless....... Meth heads are famous for home invasions..... Goose loads work well in 12 gauge......

Pretty much basic common sense--a gun locked in a safe in the basement doesn't do me much good when the bedroom is on the second floor.

Well I suppose if you had a bunch of guns and you didn't want them stolen you would keep them in the safe, you only need one not in the safe, right? Of course when I was a kid the guns were in the corner of my parents bedroom. Surprise no one ever got shot.

In my opinion there is no such thing as an accidental shooting. Thinking and knowing are two different things, thinking that a gun is unloaded does not make it true one must know. A sad story but I bet not the whole story.

Don't bother wasting your words on these cluelss tools. Short bus manboobie isn't eligible to own a gun and St. Stoner shouldn't be since he seems to believe that laws he disagrees with should be broken at will.

Since the parents weren't home the guns SHOULD have been locked up in the basement.

I have kids (and guns) and would NEVER leave my children at home with an accessible loaded gun for them to find. These parents have found out the hard way. I have a gun cabinet that has a lock on it and a small safe, not a gun safe, for my handgun in our bedroom. At night, before bed, it goes from the safe to the bottom drawer of my nightstand and in the morning it goes back in the safe.

It's different for everyone I guess. Take you for instance, your kids have an idiot for a parent and are likely too stupid to operate a gun safely.

Not that you could appreciate it, obviously from your response, St.Steven's answer to owning guns, even for just personal protection, is rational and responsible.

And being a kid yourself you should relate to kids sticking their noses in where they have no business being to try and find out what it's like to be an adult.

I love the progressives blame the victim mentality. The child was curious. Yes, it was an accident. Stevie's thought process of locking up the parents for murder should also go to people who have children who truly have no business having children. You know them..the ones who teach their children to be bullies and hate those who have more than they do and are different? Seems to be the case with quite a few progessives.

These incidents will continue so long as a segment of society refuses to take responsibility for their actions.......

You have to remember that this is the same bunch who refuses to buy health insurance because they can get free health care at the local emergency room.

The problem with all this is cases like this (and we read about them all the time). The girl who was shot was the victim here, so was the son. They have paid a price for their parent's stupid decision and lack of responsibility.

What's the difference between this and some heroin addict who leaves out needles for their children to get at? Of course if some child were to contract AIDs or Hep C from some scumbag father or mother's dirty needle they would be calling for a firing squad. My question is, wtf is the difference?

Reading the do nothing people on here, I get the idea that they believe that guns and responsibility don't have to be tied together. I have not seen any response from the right saying what to do just snide remarks to those that come up with something.

Gotta love how progressives think. A 14 year old is responsible enough to have sex, father a child and have an abortion without their parent's knowledge or consent but they're not responsible enough to handle a gun.

WTF are you talking about?

First off a 14 year old is not responsible enough to have sex, father a child or have an abortion. I don't know of any progressive who thinks that.

Secondly THIS 14 year old was obviously NOT responsible enough to handle a gun because he kind of, sort of blew his sister's face off.

If you have nothing to add to the conversation then stfu and move on...
