    there you have it.....the end of his making child support payments.

    some people will go to great lengths to escape responsibility.

    Another parent against guns... which is fine, but you should also teach your kids about guns because they are out there whether you 'ban' them from your own home or not.

    Do you teach your kids about fire hazards?
    Do you teach your kids tornado/hurricane/etc drills?
    Do you teach your kids about strangers?
    Do you teach your kids to look both ways before crossing the street?

    There's enough blame to go around here for everyone...

    1. The dumb kid who pointed a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, even though guns weren't allowed in the house.
    2. The dumb kids sitting around watching the other dumb kid do this and not stopping him.
    3. The dumb mother for not teaching her kids about guns in the first place, expecting others to apparently teach him if he encountered one.

    You do not have to be a gun owner or even like guns to be responsible enough to teach your kids about them!

    Maybe I've just gotten cynical as I've gotten older and wiser and seen more of life, but I look at it a little differently. On one hand there was the potential "to right the ship and be a productive, responsible adult...", yadda, yadda, yadda. On the other hand, given his age, attitude, irresponsibility, etc., the potential was there for him to be involved in gang activities, drive-by shooting, robberies, drug deals, and murder. He no longer will be able to do that, either. So maybe him removing himself from the gene pool has saved some other lives and heart ache by some innocent families. I tend to look at it in the latter light. Just sayin, just my .02.

    Impossible is not a word. It's just a reason for someone not to try!

    well......perhaps it was black

    or it was not registeres to him......

    oh, wait....here in America we do not have registration of guns.

    so i guess---he was stupid and it was the guns fault thus it was illegal

    "He was the kind of person who had a lot of respect for his elders" It's too bad that he didn't have enough respect for his own safety (or life), much less that of the younger people around him at the time. Sorry, but I can't mourn this young man's death.

    Thinning of the herd Darwin-style is the way of the world.

    That surely is the other side of the proverbial cosmic coin, eh? You aren't wrong in my book!

    The fact that it was probably stolen, that nobody knows where the gun came from...

    I can rephrase, 'that he had the gun illegally'...

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    And you can bet a week's salary, no dad, no mentor, no example. These clueless b@stards that procreate and then disappear to write rap songs about how cool that is. All the damage left behind.
