Splurby if you havent already noticed your country is in the grip of an Oligarchy they control you through religion and mass media already.
The time for throwing off tyranny passed and you were armed and did bugger all about it!
They were just a wee bit more subtle than sending in the troops so your arguement about retaining arms is irrelevant.

"However, Washington, DC has a UK-like ban on handguns, and it has the highest murder rate in the US, by far. So, you cannot really compare the two..."

DC no longer has the gun ban... FYI (due to recent events)

ALSO- McDuff:

Our right to bare arms is for the EXACT reasons you just explained. Yes, our military is one of the best armed in the world. Our right to bare arms is to STAND AGAINST TYRANNY. If our Government were to one day decide to try to make the second Holocaust, we would be able to defend ourselves from afore mentioned well armed military.

Although as a United States Marine I can honestly say that if my Commander told me to open fire on innocent civilians, I would shoot him in the face.

But the point stands true to this day. We bare arms to protect ourselves from tyranny (sp?).

firstly you were given the right to bear arms at a time when you had no standing army to talk of and quite rightly needed protection from the oppressive British army however that doesnt stand today as you have the best equipped military in the world! you dont all need to own guns now to protect you from the King!
As for the stats its more like 3 times the amount of murders comitted but when you look at the stats for people killed with guns not just murders but accident as well its scary as crap if guns were not as available people wouldnt be able to access them as readily and less people would die!
And one city having a ban is ridiculous if you can just go to the next town and buy all guns you want so its hardly a good example!
Yes people use other things as weapons but they are all ultimately more survivable than bullets being shot into you!

"McDuff73
Look at the statistics for gun deaths in your country where guns are allowed and any other country where they are not! in 2004 there were 29,569 gun deaths in America as opposed 78 in the UK in a year!"

You simply cannot compare the UK to the USA here. We were acknowledged our right to have guns thanks to to people like you who kept trying to kill us during the 1600s-1700s. ;)

Oh, and by the way, you do realize America is far more populated, so comparing numbers instead of percentages is really misleading. You also have murders by other weapons to factor in there. Since less people have guns in the UK, they use knives, crowbars, etc.

The US has 0.042802 per 1,000 people murdered.
The UK has 0.0140633 per 1,000 people murdered.

So the US has twice as many people murdered. However, Washington, DC has a UK-like ban on handguns, and it has the highest murder rate in the US, by far. So, you cannot really compare the two...

this just seems all wrong to me. nothings adding up. also, again, the subject of domestic violence prior to this happening in the household has been totally forgotten.

has anybody heard from the mother? neighbours? friends? was there domestic violence and if so, under what charges?

and more is needed of the interview. the media can pick and choose pretty much want they want from the facts to make a story seem better.

"...so then I went downstairs and reloaded the gun, and adjusted the sights because they were set for fifty-yard bullet drop and this was close range shooting. Then I saw Tim and figured the best way to put him down would be a headshot because these were full metal rounds and don`t have the same stopping power as my usual hollow-points, but I`m using iron sights on a 3-inch snubnose, no laser, so I had to steady the handgun on the balustrade..."

Dunno. Seems a bit much for an 8-year-old.

This video doesn`t show what he said prior to this "confession." He had a different story before, and an article said that he only "confessed" after the police said, "Are you sure you didn`t do it?"
They`re looking into the whole thing because the police apparently began interrogating him without reading him his rights or having a parent or lawyer in the room.
And children at that age will go along with anything if you lead them enough. There was a case where a therapist got children to admit and even believe that they were molested by their nursery school teachers.

Hey jenneh, don`t feel too bad if your local news isn`t covering a series of murders. Back in 2006, here in Arizona, there were two seperate types of serial killers working within the span of a 20-mile radius.

One was raping women on Baseline Road (afterwards he was dubbed with the title "The Baseline Rapist") and the other was shooting people at random in his car. Even killed a girl I knew from high school.

It was not until the third or fourth rape occurred that the local news even began covering that, and it was not until five or six weeks after the "Serial Shooter" got started that anyone even knew. Turns out there were two "serial shooters," but I digress.

"The death penalty does not work thats why there were still almost 17,000 murders in the US in 2007.66% of murders were committed by guns!"
The only reason capital punishment "isn`t working" the way it should is because there wasn`t 17,000 executions-- one for each murder. Perhaps if we toughened America up a bit, give everyone a gun, kill all the hippies (starting in Cali) and banished the ACLU to Iraq where they can fight for terrorists` rights directly-- then maybe we can start slaughtering all the yoohoo`s that think it`s cool to rape and murder.

We`ll be doing the world a favor... population control as well as lower crime rate. Will this make you happy?

Because of guns? Or people with guns? Which one is it?? I say we vote to keep guns and get rid of people. Because without people, guns wouldn`t be imbued with a life of their own and start picking people at random in which to shoot.

SO I GUESS INSTEAD OF BANNING ROCKA ND ROLL, VIDEO GAMES, TRIGGER FINGERS AND SEX... WE SHOULD JUST BAN PEOPLE INSTEAD.

OK GUYS GO AWAY!!! WE ARE BANNING PEOPLE :)

In the Uk
* the rate of crime declined 10% over 2006-07
* violent crime, vandalism and vehicle-related thefts all fell over the previous year (by 12%, 10% and 11% respectively)
* the risk of becoming a victim of crime fell from 24% to 22%
figures from the UK government!

What ticks me off is how people react so insanely to what`s put in the media. There`s a couple stories about something horrific that`s happened, and people start screaming about changing laws, etc. What about all the other thousands of people who are quite fine with the current setup? Of course, we never see that - it`d be boring. "Yep, everyone`s a-ok. Um... watch this cute puppy!"

Anyway.. </soapbox>

I think the kid was set up. =/ I have siblings that age, and they would never be strong enough to pull the trigger of a gun, not even a .22 rifle. Especially if they had to aim it at vital organs - there`s a reason .22 rifles are only used on small game. They`re not effective against anything much bigger than that.

Of course, maybe the evidence says otherwise, and he really is a psychopath in the making. x.x

That`s ridiculous and idiotic. Why would you want to ban procreation (I`m assuming you mean procreation, not sex). Are you gay? No trigger fingers? Are you telling me you want to forcibly remove index finger of over 7 billion people? What about children (That is, all the children that would be left of course you sick bastard). And what`s wrong with video games? The only people that are susceptible to that non-sense are the people that are already f`ed up anyway! I have no idea what`s wrong with you but you should just take a deep breath and reconsider your life.

I think it`s very clear that we all must ban rock and roll, cigarretts, and all video games.

We may as well ban all sex because it obviously gives us the chance that an eight year old monster will come along.

Maybe we should cut off every persons trigger finger... that way, guns cannot possibly just get a mind of their own and start shooting unsuspecting Fathers out of the blue.

To recap: No sex, no video games, no smoking and no trigger fingers and absolutely no rock and roll.

Good job peeps, make it happen!

What a second. If the gun was locked up then the kid couldn`t have gotten a hold of it at all. How do you figure that? The kid needs a mental ward for sure, but how can an EIGHT yr old understand the consequences of that before he did it.

That is just one link containing several sources siting the fact that cigarettes do cause cancer. This came about and became widely accepted in the medical field about 6 years ago.

For your comment that says violence correlates to video games...wrong again. Here is one major study proving that it in fact DOESN`T

http://news.illinois.edu/NEWS/05/0809vid...

This was performed by the The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Again one of several studies proving that Video Games do not have a solid link to violence.

Okay, all you people blaming this on video games can stop. You can actually blame this on his father. This kid is from St. Johns, which is like maybe twenty minutes from where I live and our local paper has been covering this since the beginning. The kid`s father had taught him how to shoot from a young age. His father wanted the boy to learn how to respect a firearm...but that obviously didn`t work out too well.

It`s not because of video games, it`s not because of a `culture of violence,` it`s because that kid was taught how to shoot a weapon and because his father was doing something to that kid to set him off like that.

Tv-force, how exactly do you think an 8-year old would have gotten a gun illegally? Also, how else would he have overpowered two grown men and killed them?

Banning guns completely is retarded because maybe it would have saved this non-nice individual kids dad but he would have found some other way. also banning guns is dumb because it isn`t like you couldn`t get them illegally anyway. people need to think about things, banning guns is almost as retarded as banning gay marriage, it isn`t going to stop murders just like banning marriage isn`t going to stop people from being gay. people are stupid.

This is so sickening. I don`t know whether he`s guilty or not, as people have said, he could have been coerced to make those confessions. But I`m inclined to believe that he did do it, which is just horrifying. I would never own a gun, especially not if I had children.

I am not sure you could be any more wrong with your statement. It has been medically proven that video games do NOT increase violence in children and teenagers. But you wouldn`t have bothered to look that up before making that comment would you? It appears you favor snap judgments like most uninformed individuals.
---

After watching this video a few times now it does sound as if the child has been coached. He sounds as if he is almost reading from a script, and has way too many "I think..." statements in it. What this video snippet doesn`t tell us is how long he was kept in the room with the "investigators".

As a Father of two young children I can say first hand that when my children have done something wrong they don`t sit there and tell me "I think I did it...", it is a straight forward "No" or "Yes".

Children are so easily coached and his confession doesn`t sound genuine.

Hey, if an 8 year old knew how to reload a gun, he was probably playing too many rated M games.
When I was 8 I didn`t know what a gun looked like. And if you get angry at your dad when you are 8 years old, do you shoot him? No, you scream and cry. Too much grand theft auto, halo, gears of war, call of duty, resident evil... And if I had an 8 year old kid I wouldn`t keep a gun in the house... and if i did it would be in a box that only i know the combination to.

Are you kidding? He`s 8!! 3rd grade. If we`re gonna try 8 year olds as adults we might as well just completely throw out the juvenile court system.

The juvenile court isn`t for kids too young to know what they`re doing. It`s for people who still have enough time to change themselves and live normal lives afterwards.

Mixed feelings here. I mean, part of me believes he`s guilty; he sounds so calm, and God knows there are drated up people, even children, our there.

But at the same time, his constant "I thinks" make me skeptical. Is he being coached? Hell, Im on here to procrastinate from doing a paper on children as unreliable witnesses; if the question is worded even slightly wrong (Ie. "Did you see *a* broken window?" vs. "Did you see *the* broken window?") you can get very different, unaccurate answers. How you do you leading (even unintentionally leading) questions didnt help form this confession? Or someone, once again, coaching him?

I dont know what to think... but I hope it would be the second case :S

Agreed. They need to lock him up in solitary confinement with the room being 110 degrees, no lights, and he would only be given a slice of stale bread and a cup of warm salty water a day.

Oh and also Rick Roll would be playing 24/7.

"three cheers for the second amendment, everybody!"
---------------------------

What the hell does this have to do with the Second Amendment? That comment is like saying "Three heers for letting people drive!" because someone was killed in a car accident. It isn`t the firearms fault, or in my example the cars fault. It is fault of the human!

If you are trying to point fingers at anyone, point them at the father or the individual that left the firearm where the child could get to it.

--------------

As for this video itself, it is to bad the child is disturbed to the point that he would be willing to do something like this. It makes you wonder what type of home life he has/had, most young children are a reflection of their home life.

I mean, if the 8 year old knows how to get a gun & reload it, I`m with megann, that`s one of the main problems.

"and then, I went to the basement where my mother was and cut out the unborn child. While she was still alive, but bleeding to death, I then smashed the baby`s head against the wall. After that, I shot my mother twice in the head. I waited two hours and killed five puppies, voted democrat, clubbed a baby seal, joined the ACLU and protested the war in Iraq while claiming my supporet for the troops."

There`s something verrrry suspicious going on here. Since when would an 8 year-old have the foresight to reload? Would an 8 year-old even know how to reload? Either he`s being set-up or was learning about these kinds of things from a really young age, in which case I`m not surprised this happened.

"But I really don`t think he should be tried as a juvenile, he`s only eight. Don`t waste his childhood."

He murdered his family... as an 8 year old. Imagine him in 10 years.

I think he needs serious help, if an 8 year old first of all knows how to load a gun and aim to shoot, he has obviously been taught some things in the wrong way. I understand people teach their sons how to hunt, but he obviously was not given proper gun safety/rule lessons.
Second, he needs to be in a pychiatric ward for a very very very long time. =( so sad...

this obviously is no normal eight year old. sure maybe he was mad at his dad but not many kids would just pick up a gun and shoot their dad. and even if it was in the heat of the moment and shot him the first time, he wouldnt shoot him again after he kept moving! That`s a bit extreme.

cielrouge, your statement, "if he were black he be tried as an adult and executed" is not only very lacking in grammatical structure and correct spelling, but also is incorrect.

I think this is all based around that the kid knew where the gun was.

take him out "behind the barn" and kill his ass. This is what happens when you let kids do what they want, when they can`t get what they want, they go nuts. Control them young, and this would never happen.

Sounds like this kid has some experience, he reloaded just incase, shot his dad again because he was moving, and could kill two adults. Coincidence? I think not.

"he was still moving so i shot him again"

I wonder if he was having post traumatic stress flashbacks from shooting a buck with his dad or something.

LOL at mcrack.

But yes, this was chilling to listen to. The thing is, I don`t think he realized the full extent of what he did. I`m sure he believes that death can be fixed, like a broken bone.

His father was an avid hunter and took his boy out all the time. The parents even bought him his own gun, though I can`t remember if it was his gun he shot the men with or not.
