KIDS AND GUNS – FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE

Friday, July 6th, 2012

News comes from Phoenix of a fourteen-year old boy who protected his younger siblings with a shotgun, shooting a home invader to a stop and leaving the man seriously wounded.  It looks as if the authorities are handling it well. http://ktar.com/22/1555146/Teenager-shot-suspect-in-home-invasion

 

The “other side” dances in the blood of every horror story in which an irresponsible youth gets hold of a gun and tragedy ensues.  However, incidents like the one in Phoenix have also happened before, and doubtless will again.

 

I had a loaded Colt in the desk drawer of my bedroom from age twelve on, and at the same age started carrying concealed when I worked in my father’s jewelry store.  It’s about the individual kid, and that kid’s responsibility level.

 

A loaded gun where a responsible young person can reach it to protect home and family when the resident adults aren’t there to do it … what’s your take on the topic?
