    85% of childhood deaths occur from shootings? Where? In the little area where I live, we've had about 20 kids die in the last few years. I'm sorry it could be more or less by a few, but I'm going off of ones I can remember. NONE of them were from gun violence. So, I guess that the large urban areas must have almost all of the kids who die, die by guns then to outweigh the very small numbers that occur in this state. It's interesting to note that the large urban areas have the most gun violence, and it's also where there are the highest number of Democratic supporters. Obama might want to be careful, he would hate to bite the hand that feeds him.

    He was trying to make the school safer. More guns = safety. We are now twice as safe as any country on Earth. 15 times safer than most European countries .88 guns per capita - whoo hoo safety.

    We need to protect the rights of everyone to own and pack guns.

    So why is anyone upset about this kid. I'll bet he is at least as responsible as many adult gun-packers.

    Lets see. A third grader is what, 8 or 9 years old?

    I fully support peoples right to own weapons and would fight to keep that right. However, gun advocates need to stand up loudly against gun owners who do not safeguard their weapons.

    Whoever (parents perhaps?) left this loaded gun accessible to a child should be prosecuted.

    Gun ownership is a right, but also comes with a responsibility. It is not too much to ask that guns be safeguarded.
