Re: Boy, 5, Shoots And Kills 2-Year-Old Sister, Police Say
Ugh, those parents are FUCKING IDIOTS that give responsible gun owners a bad name. It doesn't matter how old the kid is really, it's very obvious the parents themselves have no right to own any guns. Young kids can in fact safely own and use potentially dangerous things if they are taught right and supervised.
I have a little cousin, 7 or 8 years old, smart as hell. Last time I saw him (I only see him a few times a year) he was telling me about his rifle and also his Swiss Army Knife which led to him talking 20 minutes straight talking about gun and knife safety. Always point in a safe direction, mind your enviroment, never at anything you don't plan on destroying. Finger off the trigger until ready to shoot. Treat every gun as if it's loaded. Never store loaded. Never store unlocked. On and on and on.
My uncle taught his kids damn right, but sadly there are obviously parents out there with less common sense than my 8 year old cousin. It's the parent's fault and nobody elses.
