    Ok, this is confusing. So he went to jail the first time because his 14 year old son shot a friend? It sounds like Cox (the father) in this story had a previous record, even before his son shot his friend.

    The part about him getting out and buying a .270, I get that part. It's all the preceeding stuff. These writers for the news obviously don't know how to put in specifics and write in a clear manner.

    I think he was charged because the son, a minor, had access to the weapon and a death was caused by it (in addition to the other crimes after the shooting death). Much like some states will charge murder against accomplices of a crime if a death occurs, even if it was the good guy that brought about the death.

    ??? yeah... maybe he couldn't think of anywhere else to keep his spent shells? That is an oddity.

    This is my opinion. I know that they should have thought about it before they committ a felony but not all felons are violent. They just made the wrong decision and it's their first and only offense. Not all of them intend to get back to a life of crime. But until we give them a second chance, they will revert back to what they only know how to do, which is to rob and steal, and if it comes down to it, kill. I really can't blame or judge a parolee for ending up in prison again. Most of them just can't make it on the outside and going legit as long as society fails to help them in their transition to an orderly lifestyle. And not all of them had the right guidance when they grew up as we did. Put yourself in that situation and see how frustrating it is when you did your time as a non-violent first time felony offender. You paid your debt to society but unfortunately, you get any legit job because of that felony in your record. As a result, you'd do anything to get 3 square meals a day.
    Again, don't get me wrong, I am for the death penalty for convicted murderers and punishment to fit the crime. I am also for the right to self-defense and the 2nd Amendment.

    It would have been only a matter of time until this useless 'drain on society' thug committed another crime.
    At least now he'll be in a safe place for a few more years, but I doubt he'll get any smarter.

    Laws against felons owning guns are silly. If they're so dangerous, why are they even out of prison in the first place? Such laws miss the point entirely. It also unfairly excludes *all* felons, even though not all felonies are violent in nature.
