Another day. Another life cut short when a firearm discharges. A twelve year old boy dies at a Boy Scout Camp.

With whom should the responsibility for this needless tragedy rest upon? Should criminal charges be filed against the irresponsible actions of whomever was responsible for this child? Must we accept there is nothing we can do as a society because of the 2'nd Amendment right to bear arms? Are there any responsible adults governing this nation?

Yes, I know guns don't kill people, people kill people. But it takes the action of a person to discharge a firearm and when irresponsible adults set the stage for a child to have access to a loaded weapon unsupervised by a responsible adult please tell me just who is negligent and why the shouldn't be charged with negligent homicide?

  1. Tragic. I heard this today, but I didn't read the details. Was it an accident? Suicide? How did this child get access to the weapon? It's almost a dead child a day. If some sort of disease were causing these deaths, Americans would be tearing down Congressmen and women's doors demanding them do something.

  2. Local news confirms a suicide.

    No information on how he obtained a handgun.

  3. IMO, the NRA would be well served to concentrate a bit more on impact energies and wound ballistics , rather than the
    joy of huge magazines and purse-sized protection.
