There is no problem with a 5 year old learning to shoot under supervision. It's even o.k. to refer to it as "his" gun. There is no excuse for the parents allowing him free access to it. I just bought a Marlin Mod. 60 for my 13 year old nephew. It's HIS gun when I take him out shooting, but he doesn't even look at it unless I am around. It's in the safe, where it belongs.

The kinder egg ban was lifted. Also, at least 7 kids have died from the things. That's just the world.

"I' don't even think 5 year olds are ready for BB guns."

Oh. An opinion.

Firearm responsibility can be taught at any age. These parents just suck.

I like the Crickett company's logo: "Quality firearms for America's youth." I guess "Quality firearms for America's children" sounded just a wee bit insane. Only because, well, it is.

Every day kids get killed in various accidents. I'll let you figure out why media outlets choose to publicize only this story.

You can blame the parents and the gun manufacturer, though.


Lol the manufaturer for what selling a product to an adult?

Nobody is blaming the gun. You can blame the parents and the gun manufacturer, though. Who gives a 5 year old a .22 caliber rifle? I' don't even think 5 year olds are ready for BB guns.

@mcgovern, I think you're view on banning guns is skewed. It's not the thought that guns are personally responsible for the deaths. Anti-gun people understand that guns don't literally kill people. It's that there are millions of morons like this kids parents who don't know how to handle a gun properly that makes them want to ban their right to own one.

Before you go there. I'm a pro gun advocate. I come from a gun happy family. So don't think differently, I'm just explaining the fault in this belief you a few others keep pushing.

These .22's aren't the kind that would be subject to any ban, they're pretty easy to obtain in any developed country. It's really just the parents being awful parents, and even more awful gun owners. We could make guns like alcohol and make it illegal to operate one under a certain age, but this should be thought of as allowing children to do dumb stuff, like playing on a cliff.

Why give a 4 year old any gun period. Why leave it in place easily accessible to him. Why leave a goddamn round in the chamber.

I've written this before and I'll do it again, "though we all have the right to own a gun, some people shouldn't".

Because EVERY 4-year-old should get a gun for his birthday. Just skip the toy guns altogether. Booyah! Stop the world, I... you know the rest.
