Exactly what I think Lenny. I couldn't believe that someone could be that stupid. Now they have lost their child. What a price to pay for being an idiot! :twisted:

This is just more sensational news for mindless people by the pro gun grabbing lobby biased media.

Gun locks render the posession of a gun useless for self defence.

In the country areas EVERYONE INCLUDING KIDS know that a gun found in the home is ALWAYS loaded. That is the way they are kept most of the time.

It is only stupid city folk who are not able to teach their children gun safety and part of this is due to oppression by the Gun Banning Lobby themselves. In their effort to do away with guns they make it hard for people to learn gun safety.

IT is too bad that the press decides to sensationalise the few people accidentally killed by guns while ignoring the 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 incidents a year that a gun is used in the PREVENTION of a crime in the USA. Those figures are from the US Justice Department's estimation, during the Clinton administration.

I don't agree with you. Those parents should have known better to lock the closet that they kept the gun inside. And how hard is it to teach your kids the safety about guns even with the gun banning. Anyway, I just don't like people keeping the guns in the house. To me, baton will work just fine.

A baton will do you on good at all if your intruder is bigger than you, experienced in the art of thuggery, are more than one or if you are an old man or woman.

There may be some culpability on kids mother depending on the true circumstances. My guess is that she was ignorant and did not know how to teach her kids about this. You can aslo put some blame on our schools for not making gun safety a point to small kids as they do about not getting into a car with strangers. But it is not "PC" to talk about guns in school anymore, unless it is to say things like, " The Brady Bill-good, NRA-very bad".

Well, as much as I know a guy who knows martial arts or something related to it like kick-boxing and stuff don't do home-robbery. Only people who have no jobs, no talents, too lazy, etc. do this kinda stuff. And the best way to fight with those useless guys is a baton smashing to the nuts. For women, same thing but upper area :lol: . Serve those useless people right!

Thats right danyet blame just the MOTHER! What about the father. Oh sorry he is probably ok because he is probably the one that owned the gun in the first place. :roll: :roll: He is a criminal anyway he wasn't even licensed to own the weapon. For goodness sake keep this thread sensible. :roll:
