Since we do not have any details about how the shooting ocurred, even if the weapon was in the possession of the 14 yo old, or the 10 yo victim, I feel that this discussion is a bit premature. But the liberals who want to take away any and all firearms from the public are always ready to pounce any time there is an incident involving a firearm. Save your breath until the details of this tragedy are made public, and let the family have their time to grieve in peace before using it for political fodder.

Agree on the lack of details. Where children are concerned, however, I guarantee that all parties involved in this tragedy would give anything to turn back time and not have a gun anywhere near them.

"Save your breath until the details of this tragedy are made public, and let the family have their time to grieve in peace before using it for political fodder."

Right after making the following statement:

"But the liberals who want to take away any and all firearms from the public are always ready to pounce any time there is an incident involving a firearm."

Based on your "liberal" remark, it looks as if you've already started the pouncing. Maybe you should 'save your breath until the details of this tragedy are made public, and let the family have THEIR time to grieve in peace before YOU use it for political fodder'. Just a thought..........

Why do people carry guns?
Here is why

So, people can video these fools but no one can shoot them in the U.K. Gun control at work.

I love the line about the armed police finally showing up (as the unarmed ones apparently couldn't do squat). UFB.

How long to you think that these fools would have lasted in TX??

FYI, there is already a law on the books that require gun owners to secure their firearms so that no minor can gain access to them.

So basically the suspect had a gun either because they either stole it or the legal gun owner was in violation of the law.

RIP.

Every day every Law is broken! NO matter what we are talking about it comes down to personal responibility. If you drive a car, own a gun, operate equiptment ETC we are responsible for our own actions. it is as simple as that!

Of course. Freedom of speech is great. But if you look at many topics, you won't see me post on them. I don't pretend to know everything. Of course, you are probably the same but used a new name to post with to cover your hypocrisy.

It's very simple. If you have young kids, ALWAYS keep your guns locked up unless you are handling them (and yes, you can leave something in your bedroom unlocked at night in case you need it).

Other than that, if your kids are old enough (14 is ok, but 10 is iffy) they need to know about firearm safety. Just the basics: treat every gun as if it were loaded, keep the safety on until you are ready to shoot, don't put your finger on the trigger unless you are ready to shoot; could have prevented this tragedy. Make sure your kids are responsible and mature enough to take a firearm seriously. If they aren't, keep your guns locked away.

Right, save my breath and in the meantime another child dies in this country from a gun. What your really want is silence about the gun issue. The US doesn't care about the education its children gets, whats more our culture has a throw away mentality towards its seniors. Basically US citizens don't really care about anything except themselves as individuals. The propaganda worked.

The only spark there was to begin this ridiculous "conversation" was by the news reporter, if you can even call them that, and the only reason they did it was to generate the comments already posted here! Your comments are seen by no one that make a change in the laws.
Hmmmmm

twinmom just like to take any occasion that makes it even slightly possible to use the word "liberal" in what she thinks of as being derogatory. Even though she obviously doesn't know what the word "liberal" means since by her comments she is apparently in favor of liberal gun laws.
