@MeGrendel.
Most sane people recognize an ATV as something not purposefully designed to kill.

There's a big difference in real perception and twisting a story to fit your spin.

Guns kill. ATVs 'can' kill. But your obviously ok with giving a 5 year old a gun, but letting one on an atv is bad parenting?

wow.... i just dont understand why these people are so ridiculously obsessed with guns, are they just the hippest fashion accessory for the uneducated to show off to their friends? or do these people all honestly intend on killing other people with them? Because i dont see very many other possible uses for the things

A .22 caliber rifle is not a f'n toy. It doesn't matter if it has a cute name like crickett, is a f'n RIFLE! You want the kid to play with a rifle? Get himm a bb gun NOT a f'n .22...On the other hand, if all the incompetent parents would get their kids rifles, maybe they'd just eliminate themselves from the gene pool

This reminds me of the big stink over how 'dangerous' ATV's were at first.

A couple wanted to have them banned because their child was killed on one, and they had it on video. The parents went to the media to show the video in hopes of having them banned.

Turns out the video was of Mom & Dad placing a 6 year old (on his birthday) on a HUGE ATV by himself, where his feet didn't even reach half-way to the pedals, with no training or helmet. Kid immedialty goes full throttle and rolls it an kills himself.

The parents thought the video was proof of how dangerous ATV's were. The REST of the world knew the vidoe was proof that the kid had idiots for parents.

But it was the ATV's fault.

Fwoggie2-"No law abiding citizen should feel the need to have one, "

See, you have no say in what a law abiding citizen 'feels' they need.

Fwoggie2-"because the police and military should protect them."

See, unfortunately, courts have found that the police have no responsibility to protect you. And the military does not act as a police force. In fact, they are banned from doing so by law, except in very specific situations.

I'm sorry if you have an irrational fear of an inamate object. Sane people have no such fear.

turdburglar - the Queen Mum is long dead, so her bosom's not gonna be that warm these days. And yeah, you guys sure don't believe the idea of a govt controlled paradise which is why so many of you arm yourselves to stop "them" (without defining who in the government "them" is).

95% of our cops don't have authorisation to carry guns in the UK, because there's no need for it. Moreover, over 82% of the police in a BBC survey last year themselves said they didn't want to be issued a gun.

There's nothing submissive about having sensible gun laws. No law abiding citizen should feel the need to have one, because the police and military should protect them. And in Europe, they do a very good job, so we don't have to.

The parents should be jailed for 1) not double-checking to make sure the gun was not loaded and 2) leaving it gun standing in the corner where the kid could get to it.

The sad thing is, though, kids die all the time from accidents and negligence, but we don't try to outlaw the proximate cause except in the extremely rare cases when it's a gun. A lot more kids die from bike crashes and drowning than guns, but you don't hear liberals crying to outlaw bikes and pools.

It's always sad when children die, but what really bothers me, though, is when liberals use their coffins as soap boxes to push their anti-constitutional gun confiscation agenda.

*Sees he is from Europe, facepalms.

"Should" = "Gee I sure hope so!"

History class is useless I suppose.

Guns are out of control in America, that's pretty obvious. But to take them all away is just as ridiculous.

Five guns for every child, assault charged man, and mentally unstable woman = Bad

Taking away all guns and relying upon the government which is about as corrupt as it could be? = Just as bad!

Can't we find a fair middle ground of laws, devoid of meaningless political agenda, which allows for proper safety for citizens, while allowing individuals the right to protect themselves and their loved ones from others, including the government? Surely we can come u

@McGovern1981: Your post at Wednesday, May 01, 2013 3:11:40 PM reminds me of Rousseau when he said:

"It will be said that the despot assures his subjects civil tranquillity. Granted; but what do they gain, if the wars his ambition brings down upon them, his insatiable avidity, and the vexatious conduct of his ministers press harder on them than their own dissensions would have done? What do they gain, if the very tranquillity they enjoy is one of their miseries? Tranquillity is found also in dungeons; but is that enough to make them desirable places to live in? The Greeks imprisoned in the cave of the Cyclops lived there very tranquilly, while they were awaiting their turn to be devoured."

who the hell buys a five year old a weapon. here billy have this combat knife, i know your only five and have the brains of chimp, but i trust you.

the adults of the house hold should be charged with manslaughter, or at least wreakless endangerment of a child for leaving a danger weapon in reach of a child whit out properly educating them. and i don't want to hear any boo hoo for the parents their at fault they set up the condition for this death knowingly or unknowingly.

I had a bb gun when I was 5, but it couldn't even kill the crows. I definitely did not have a 22 at age 4, like this kid. I didn't get one of those until I was 10 and had proved that I was able to handle a gun appropriately, I vote bad parenting on this one. Leaving a loaded gun out alone with a five year old is like doing the same with prescription medication, just stupid.

@kasuko: The NRA in no way, shape or form endorses leaving a 2 and 4 year old ALONE in a house with a LOADED gun.

There's legitimate reasons to "knock the NRA" but that ain't one of them...

If there was no Draino under the sink? If there was no draw cords for the curtains? If there was no staircase to fall down...

As per the NRA - this death could have been avoided if the little girl had a gun too!! Bad parenting would not have got the girl killed if there was NO gun in the house to begin with!!!

What this was was a stupid stupid mistake made by the mother. It could have been avoided and prevented. Senseless.

I don't like the picture used for the link. Kinda implies that the kid had an intent to murder.

23 people were shot in Chicago last night were you can't own a pistol. Imagine that "control"(which is banning) gives gangs a way to run unimpeded Obamas blueprint for the US LOL!

Horrible incident. But how does banning guns stop horrible parenting or just plain stupidity? You lefties can't simply legislate these kinds of things out of society. I think you minimize a lot of problems by starting with holding good things to high value and teaching them to our children. We have multi-generational dumb-assery in our country and it only getting worse. But hey, let's keep glorifying drugs and violence and sex every one up (see Miley Cyrus post). Let's keep honest decent religion down and focus only on the headline incidents of the few who abuse it. We need more reality TV and entitlement mentality and less "The Waltons" and people taking responsibility for thier own actions. Yup, to heck wit legalizing marijuana, let's just open the damn pharmacy doors wide open across the country! /end sarcasm

I think part of the problem is, yes other things kill kids, but this is one of many examples of a tragedy that COULD have been avoided. These parents were negligent and it's stupid that someone had to die because of that negligence. There needs to be tighter control on WHO can have access to guns. I'm not saying we can prevent every death but FFS can we do anything to even try when it's something this blatant?

I don't think the solution is to send the parents to prison, they have to live with the fact that they've lost their child and we don't need to screw up the brother anymore than he already is messed up now that he's killed someone.
