Massad Ayoob


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.


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?
