No, that is your opinion.<quoted text>Wow- you keeping a loaded gun in the room of your minor teenage sons is right up there with many other examples of neglect- in this case, Inadequate Supervision- and examples of bad parenting- for which there really are no excuse:
"Exposure to hazards.
Examples of exposure to in- and out-of-home hazards include:
- Safety hazardspoisons, small objects, electrical wires, stairs, drug paraphernalia;
- Smokingsecond-hand smoke, especially for children with asthma or other lung problems;
********-Guns and other weaponsguns that are kept in the house that are loaded and not locked up or are in reach of children;********
- Unsanitary household conditionsrotting food, human or animal feces, insect infestation, or lack of running or clean water;
- Lack of car safety restraints.25"
Uh...neglect is most definitely a form of child abuse, that you allow a loaded gun to be kept in your teenage son's room is indeed neglectful and is therefore most definitely CHILD abuse.
And not only is this just not MY opinion, it's actually FACT.
My kids know how to handle a gun and they know all about gun safety. It's not a problem.
They ain't those stupid liberal kids that ain't never seen a gun and when they do, they ignorantly point it at someone and pull the trigger.
Don't worry OCB, my kids are safer than you.
