This is outrageous! What type of absentminded neglectful parents LEAVE three children alone in a home by themselves knowing that there are loaded firearms in easy access on the premises???

The parents need to be charged for neglectful care and their kids need to be put in a loving foster home. Word

Would you rather be reading a story about children killed by an intruder? I won't judge the parents because I don't know all the facts. The 14-year-old handled it well. He probably saved all of their lives. Not all people leave firearms lying around for their kids to find. Some people teach them responsibility.

Better the intruder dead than the kids. The kid did what anyone of us would do to protect our family. Its unfortunate that he was put into this position, but he did the right thing. It is perfectly legal to leave a 14 year old in charge of babysitting their siblings. The parents were working, and they obviously taught their oldest child how to protect thelmselves in their absence. If you are going to have weapons in the home everyone within reason should know how to access them and use them with responsibility.

I cant believe anythere responsible adult would allow or even defend a CHILD possessing or firing a firearm. One of those three kids could have very easily killed the others.

Guns should be outlawed. Word
