Based on the usual defense of the gun and how in the right hands they are safe, maybe you should ban babies/toddlers, i mean obviuosly the gun is far more important and sacred.

Please America stop killing each other/oneself over this obsession.

The link provided by midnightstar shows on average 93 people a day die from gunshots in the USA, what with Judge Dredd policing and people shooting at each other, it always seems so tragic.

My kids were shooting my M4s at about the age of 6... my pistols about the age of 8 (couldn't really pull the trigger yet). I keep most of my guns/amno in a safe with a combo my kids do not know. In the safe I have a loaded shotgun and 30 round mags of .556 that would take me about 10 seconds to get to and load.

In my bedroom by my bed in a drawer I have a 40 cal with the loaded mag sitting next to it. If I ever needed the gun I would need to load the mag first. My kids until they hit their teens did not have the strength to actually load and rack the chamber, so though they never touched it outside the range they would have had a hard time getting a bullet in a position to fire it if they ever did. I know they have never touched it because the way it sits in the drawer, if you do not put it back just right it would not be the same...also the first times they shot it it was too powerful for them and they really didn't like it at all, and so they shot a .22 I have after that.

Guns are not really available to them and they are not some great mystery to them either since they were kind of scared at an early age as to how powerful they are. They gained a good amount of respect for them over the years.

Now lets go to Chicago with loaded guns laying around or in a guys pocket/waistband, all gangster fashion like. The key here is 25-year-old convicted felon's gun... the kid shooting himself in the finger is the least of his problems.

Poor kid...this can't be the norm for some kids. So unfair that a kid has to grow up in an environment that doesn't allow a child to enjoy childhood.

Reality is if society were civilised this would not happen, as it is though society is sick and as a result this kind of tragedy festers .

That is the negative energy that permeates society and then rears it's ugly head into every nook & cranny. You know how water seeks the lowest plain/point? This energy does the same and seeps into every dark spot or spots open to turning dark.
