Personally I think it was an mistake and he wouldn't have just shot and killed the boy, purposely if they were hanging out together, a little play around went wrong and now it's an regret for the rest of his life. Everybody makes mistakes but you have to be more careful.

Why is a sixteen year old playing with a gun and where were his parents at the time of the incident. Once again another child messed up his entire like due to the parents not locking up the gun. Parents need to be more careful with handguns dont allow anyone to touch the firearm when you are not around to supervise.

(/QUOTE)Any parent who owns a gun has the responsibility to teach everymember of the family[ gun saftey.# 1 rule- always treat agun as though it were loaded.. the gun did not need to be locked up, the teen needed to be familiar and responsible to handle the gun at 16 years old. I6 he had benn properly trained I don't think he would have pointed it at the other boy.
