And, too, let's quit saying liberals are trying to take everyone's guns. They're not. Just reasonable controls on sales, loopholes, lock requirements, safes, etc.


along with the banning of thoes scary "assualt rifles" and high cap mags..... yep no agenda there....

"I think that says it all.."

Sure does. Same as if the parents let the kids play on the freeway, or let them swim in a shark tank.

Bad parenting leads to bad accidents.

i was under the assumption that the youngest age for a hunting license is 12. practice with a parent before then is acceptable. then you shouldn't let the child alone until atleast 16 or 18. this is just an example of bad parenting. it has nothing to do with guns.

"Guns have been romanticized to the point that they are treated like toys."

No they haven't. There are toy guns, but there are no gun toys.

"Would it be OK to market an automobile to children."

Daddy! Buy one of these in real life! It's my favorite!

...it on their own.

Thirdly, what are you talking about?
There are loads of motor vehicles designed specifically for children.
Just none (or very few) made for the public road. Most are made for responsible and supervised use on closed circuits. Which BTW harms many more children each years than shooting.
These vehicles are teaching aids meant to teach kids how to drive, until they are old enough and responsible enough to do it on their own.

Just like with the guns no manufacturer is telling the kids to just take their dirtbike for a ride on the public road alone and unsupervised.
If their parents let the kids do that they are BAD PARENTS, and it has nothing to do with the vehicles, the manufacturer, or "modern vehicle culture in America".

@RobSwindol

You're making very little sense right now.

Firstly, the kid was 5. He doesn't care about media romanticism. When you're that age everything looks like a toy.
Secondly, guns aren't marketed to children because they can't buy them.
They are marketed to parents that want to teach their kids shooting in a safe and responsible way.
The Cricket brand guns are single shot guns that need to be manually roostered and reloaded between shots, AND it has a freaking key lock built into the mechanism designed to prevent kids from using them without their parents consent and supervision.
Firearms manufacturers aren't telling kids to go get the gun and run around shooting stuff on their own without supervision.
Parents teaching their kids to shoot is just like parents teaching their kids to drive.
They might take them out to some isolated area and under supervision teach them the basics until they are old enough and responsible enough to legally do

Big deal.
It may sound heartless, but accidents happen.
It's tragic that a little girl died, but It's not the guns fault.
It sounds like it was the parent's fault for leaving the gun loaded, and unlocked where a kid could get at it, and not teaching him that guns aren't toys.


That's exactly the point of the post, you dumbass.

That's the problem with the American firearm community today. Guns have been romanticized to the point that they are treated like toys. A55holes like you don't see the problem with marketing a firearm to children.

Would it be OK to market an automobile to children. In most states a person can't drive a car until they are 16, so car companies don't market them to people younger than that. But one must be even older to buy a gun, so why are these being marketed to children???

And don't say that kids don't kill other kids without guns, it simply isn't true.
I a kid in my old school accidentally drowned anther kid when he was like 5, and my brother very nearly killed me when he pushed me out of a tree, breaking my neck.

@Dracula ~ The same kind of idiot that then leaves said 5 year old unattended with the firearm and ammunition.

Fwoggie - You dummy. Believe the picture painted by the media. This is the wild west...there are bullets flying by my head as I type this. I have to go put my 4year old daughter to bed in the fallout shelter and make sure she has enough ammo to survive until morning. [end sarcasm]

What makes you think we give half a s#it about your arrogant europussy statistics? YOU can trade your basic human rights for the wrinkly warmth of the queen mum's bussom. We don't believe the idea of a government controlled paradise, so maybe you should loose the arrogance and realize your crappy side of the cesspool isn't what America wants to be. Until then you can continue to roll over and show you belly, like a submissive bitch, to your privacy stealing handlers.

This guy said "toothless" in a sentence referring to Europeans. Tee hee!

"imagine if it was your child!"

It would be a horrifying, accident, and wouldn't change my opinion on gun control.

Draculya - an American one.

McGovern1981 - We're really good at killing people with knives if we want to. You've gotta get a damn sight closer with a knife to kill someone - accidentally or otherwise.

So, some stats from the UKTwat Guardian;

No of firearms per 100 people in US (England and Wales in brackets): 88.8 (6.2).
Homicide by firearm: 9,146 (41)

Yes the US has more population, but the gun situation in the US is out of control. You go berserk about 3 people getting killed in a bombing in Boston, but yet won't do anything about guns when there's a shootout with that many people dead most days of the week over there. If we had 5 people killed by guns, it would be headline news for a week due to its rarity.

But nothing is going to change and as a result every decade

This is no different than a child finding and drinking drano and dying. It's a tragedy, particularly because its so easily preventable, in hindsight. The pain of losing their child is punishment enough for the parents. We need to remember that trying to have government regulate these things away is a pipe dream.

Yeah, heh-heh, "just one of those crazy accidents." I mean what could you do? Store guns safely? Empty them after use? Maybe not give a rifle to a five-year-old? I know, crazy suggestions. Kids will kill kids, after all.

a 5 year old should not have a bb rifle. most kids shouldnt. hasnt anyone seen a christmas story? hell, my buddies at the age 14 shot another buddy with a high powered bb rifle (the guy let them shoot him). the bb went right into his gut. theres video footage of it, all you can hear is the guy yellin "its in MEEE!?!?" he had to have surgery to get the bb removed (after some home surgery with pliers of course). classy bunch of guys i hang out with.

SmagBoy - I disagree, it is about taking guns away. The plan is to do it one step at a time. It is defiantly not about safety or saving lives. If it was they wouldn't be focusing on the weapons that are least likely to be used in a homicide. For me, it's not a liberal vs conservative issue. I consider myself liberal on most issues. I could even get on board with some laws for background checks and gun locks, but I do not trust our politicians. They will use laws, passed with good intentions, to limit access for law abiding citizens. An example of a well intentioned law gone bad: In some states you have to pass a safety course to own a gun. In theory it's not a bad idea. In reality these classes are run by the state which makes them unavailable, effectively banning weapons for those people.

So beternal, as your house apparently contains nothing that is deadly at all, I´d like to hear your stories of being homeless and how you came by whatever device you´re currently using to steal someones wifi with to make posts here.

Also oddly not all Europeans are brainwashed or scared of guns, mostly just our mainstream imbeciles amd politicians. You´ll possibly notice my arguements are generally towards common sense and would be considered "pro" gun, so long as handled with education and responsibility. Generalization is a bad thing.

just a case of bad parenting, not something that should be used for the anti gun nuts (but they will try). a .22 is NOT a gun for 5 year olds, MAYBE a BB gun at max at that age, but definitely not anything with any gun powder

The thought about cars is that we strive to make them safer every year. They have to pass ever-increasing safety and efficiency measures and car deaths have decreased by nearly 50% in 40 years. So, no argument there.

And, too, let's quit saying liberals are trying to take everyone's guns. They're not. Just reasonable controls on sales, loopholes, lock requirements, safes, etc. You can keep mischaracterizing the liberal agenda all you want. It's not about taking guns. It's about making gun ownership safer. But, whatever. We're all evil liberals. I guess I'm fine with that.

Was it one one of those Bolt-Action Assault .22 Long Rifles with a pistol grip & ghetto grip attachment, reflex sight and silencer?
