I'm just in too good a mood for this trash.

I was going to write a lengthy response to this, but decided against it.  Presented without further comment.

I think instead of saying "ban all guns" this story should be calling for mandatory gun training in schools as part of PE.

It'd remove the curiosity bit, and training is still the best defense against accidents.

I agree. The Eddie Eagle program - which the state supported - was banned from city schools. Considering how many kids die locally due to their parents' failure at storing firearms, it would save so many lives!

I just wish people would stop blaming firearms. They don't blame cars for kids dying in accidents...they don't blame pools for kids drowning in them...

Concur with Zig... If they had been properly instructed, and had been taken to the range and allowed to shoot, there wouldn't have been the mystery OR the violation of the Four Rules. Sad story, totally mis-directed (my opinion).

WV-shown Yep, they SHOULD have been shown the guns long before!

It's very sad, but like everything else now, personal responsibility for things is lacking or non-existent. Not only could education of children benefit them to prevent accidents, but education in responsible gun ownership benefits everyone.

NFO - agreed, but the city is ruled by fearful individuals who believe in straight banning, rather than education. It's a shame, too, because the Board of Education supported it. SO MANY kids' lives could be saved with the introduction of that program.
