    The parents should be held responsible as well as the teen. NO weapon should be within a childs reach or not locked up!!!! Every adult knows the curiosity of a kid...we were all kids once and we ALL did stupid stuff. Maybe we didn't shoot anyone, but things we did could have caused just as serious damage I am sure. As parents, it is OUR responsibility to protect our kids and be responsible if we own weapons. That means...........LOCK THE WEAPONS UP!!!!!! And....why were these two left unsupervised? Wake up people...children are just that...CHILDREN!! They are not little grown ups!! Look after your kids instead of making your kids the parents!!

    Very well said. I support and believe the exact same way you do. Our children are our future and just running to a store or leaving them in a car or at home for a few minutes is cause for destruction that could've been prevented. This could have been prevented. The parents should be blamed for this. The gun one should have never been in the house especially with little ones. Unless locked and hid away where no one knew where it was. Two. The children shouldn't have been left alone and honestly. I am getting more and more against guns I don't even care if it is in our constitution. I believe they cause more problems than they are worth. Yes if you live on a farm and you are a hunter. I can see this. However. Do you really need all those guns in a glass gun rack, have you ever noticed that. Guns in glass gun racks. Well, sorry that is like having it unlocked. Mine as well just say lets go shoot some doves just so you know how to shoot a gun at the age of 8! Not hardly. We don't live in the pioneer days. We are more modern and I believe we should learn from the mistakes that others have had. It is unfortunate every single day here in the USA that there is some unmeaning shooting or killing or car chase or some crime being prevented. Honestly. If I did not live in the USA. I wouldn't want to visit here. Fiji has absolutely a no crime rate. Maybe we should learn from other countries that prevent the crimes that happen here in the USA. They must be doing something right.
