    Guns don't kill people!

    True - 5-year-olds do!

    Can you imagine actually giving a 5-year-old a real rifle? Even a downsized one? Hell, when I was that age I couldn't even have a BB gun, back in the 1950s.

    I wonder if the parents will be charged with a crime? Nah... it's Kentucky.

    My best friend from school fired his first rifle at 7-8 years old.

    This is terrible! The fact that you are joking about it puts you on the same level as South Beach, there I said it.

    Even if we outlaw them, guns arent going to go away. I think the issue is treating them more like deadly devices than just pieces of equipment.

    You would be surprised about how fucking stupid people are with guns out here. There is a day care center that hides guns in their house, not locked up, and each gun has a map to bullets and other guns in the house. Like, are you fucking kidding me? Where is common sense?

    I got my first rifle at 5, but was only allowed to take it out with Dad there to supervise. I was taught to regard it as dangerous, as a responsibility, and how to take care of it. A bit later, Dad gave me a muzzle-loading rifle on the understanding that the amount of work it took to load it and clean in would teach me something about not wasting a shot. I think both ideas worked, though I no longer own a gun.

    The cliche that guns don't kill but people do is so simplistic as to obscure any real thought - which is why it's so effective. The fact is, guns make killing easier, faster, even "sexier" (watch some TV). And the notion that "they" want to ban guns or take them away is just as silly: it won't happen in the this country in the foreseeable future. But equally, the NRA-inspired notion that nothing can be done, that we need to be armed, is destructive.

    Guns are going to be around for a long time. But we need to make them harder to get, especially in a hurry; we need to make them easier to trace; we need to see that they are properly stored; we need background checks. And we need to make serious gun-handling trained mandatory. it's stupid to register cars and insist that people learn to drive properly and buy insurance, and then to make guns so easy to pbtain.

    If a parent buys a gun for their 5 years old, would that 5 year old have to pass a universal background check?

    also I wonder what kind of adult that 5 year old now has the realistic chance of becoming. He will always be the boy that killed his baby sister. I cannot imagine a positive life for him no matter how much therapy he gets. I really feel sorry for that poor child and I hope that he doesn't try to kill himself because of this. I despise with all my heart the parent who bought the gun, left it loaded, did not have the child safety lock on and then left her small children unattended, even for a brief second. Has she not been paying attention to the news where two other toddlers are now killers because of actions that took brief seconds, accidental or not.



    and I agree with someone who wrote earlier, this is not a joking matter. At all in any way shape or form.

    Nor did I mean any of my comments to be joking matters, to which Chainers made that criticism of me. Far from it - rather I want to illustrate the craziness of our US laws & policies regarding firearms.

    Like you, I also feel bad for the boy. I hope he can escape lasting emotional damage from this. Clearly he was not at fault here, but the adults who acted irresponsibly, who allowed such an accident to take place.

    But I wonder if the adults will face any legal consequences from this? That would be even more revealing, about whether American society can act rationally regarding firearms.

    The new FDA age is 15, but yes, I agree with you in principle.

    Still, though, I'd probably be emotionally/psychologically scarred for life if I killed my sister at ANY age, let alone the fragile age of 5.

    This really pisses me off. They preach about dealing better with the mental health aspect in regards to gun laws. So they are saying it's the mental state of a person that should determine who can get a gun. What kind of mental state does a 5 year have. They are not even in the 1st grade. I wouldn't let a 5 year old walk across a road by themselves, much less give one a tool of death and the responsibility that goes with it. No matter what they say, it's nothing but fucking shit coming out of their mouths.


    If they can have red white and blue and pink rifles for kids then where the fuck is Joe Camel.

    Actually not even that. A minority of Republican Senators filibustered down a bill that would have required background checks for US gun purchases. Enabling almost ANYONE to buy a guy, with little or no restrictions.

    As for the tragic death of the little kid in the OP, I'd like to see the dead kid's parent(s) spend a few years in jail. They're 100% at fault.

    This is called Gun Culture

    In the rural areas of America guns are part of everyday life
    But I don't care where you live
    What your politics are
    How you feel about guns
    ... or how much you need to buck everything that Obama says

    Giving a gun to a five Year Old is NEGLIGENCE

    and Making that gun is CRIMINAL

    OP - you are an idiot. This has nothing to do with the NRA. It has to do with poor parenting and not properly teaching kids gun safety.

    I had my first gun when I was 5. I was given another one every year on my birthday and I have never accidentally shot someone. I was taught what a gun is, what it does and when not to play with them.

    I am so tired of hearing people say guns are so bad. Guns freed us from tyranny in the revolutionary war. They have kept us free ever since. They are carried by the men and women who keep you safe in this world and those who defend our country. They are also used by law abiding people to protect themselves and their family.

    You can take guns from good guys, then only bad guys will still have them (that sounds like a great plan). Guns aren't the problem, its people. I can't count the amount of times I have seen a story about a kid using a gun to defend themselves.

    Umm no .... You're an idiot and so are your parents who gave you that gun when you were five
    Did your parents also give you Boilermakers with dinner and let you drive the family car to school everyday?
    Gimme a freakin break
    You can have your guns but Don't try to defend giving a lethal weapon of ANY KIND to a 5 year old
