Another f`d up kid whos parents were not involved in his life, making sure he grew up to be a good citizen. Where the hell are the parents of kids like this? Do they even get a little involved in their kids lives?

dont go overboard truth,my parents were very responsible people and i took 1 of my fathers guns over to a friends house.didnt shoot it or anything but it was a very stupid thing to do.i have to go back and read the whole article but was the kid threatening others at school? i have no idea, yet. when i was young , the thought of going to jail was enough to keep me out of any serious trouble. seems that they dont care anymore about jail or just about anything.

Hey, we all have done stupid things, no matter how well we were raised. But the lack of parental supervision, and failing to get involevd with our kids has led to part of the down fall of our Country. I never remember kids shooting each other on purpose like they do now. When you heard about a kid shooting another kid, it was because they were playing with their fathers gun that was under the bed, or closet. Kids have no respect for anyone today, including the law. Scary times we live in. Remember fights at school? A few punches, and it was over. Now kids use weapons, will stomp on others heads while they are down, and continue to beat on someone until they are in a coma. Parents need to pay attention to what their kids are doing, who they are hanging out with, and what their interests are. Our society today is too busy to take care of our kids, and think someone else will do the job for us and warn us when are kids are getting out of control. I was not sensored much in what I was able to watch on T.V. I saw very violent programs, yet I never had the desire to be a violent person, or go act like they did on T.V. I was taught it was just acting, and I turned out to be a normal, law abiding citizen. Just my two cents though....
