As of Nov. 23, at least 39,696 people have died from gun violence this year, and another 21,582 have died by suicide, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive.
There was some type of dispute on social media. A 14-year-old male and a 16-year-old male killed. A 15-year-old female, 11-year-old male and 15-year-old male in the hospital.
"Why is there a 7-year-old with a bloody gun?"
Now this is a revolutionary idea !
The superintendent of Newport News Public Schools, Dr. George Parker, said at the news conference that “we need to keep guns out of the hands of our young people.”
That's a stupid thing to say. At that age it's the parents fault for not locking up their guns, with small children around. And, if it is their gun, not teaching the child about guns. You have to teach your children about guns, and their safety, if you own them.
It's not the government's job to keep guns out of the hands of very young children, it's the parents job.
Kid did it on the purpose. It's not the government or the parents, it's the gun culture.
It's not the gun culture. That's totally incorrect. Law-abiding gun owning citizens don't go around showing off their guns. An adult wouldn't know they owned guns unless the gun owner told them so. A child definitely wouldn't know. It's the left, Hollywood. They see these shoot'em up shows and movies. That is the only place they can get this information or even learn about it.
Come on Gunter, really? What do children really know, unless they have suck face parents, and/or television.
Obviously, law abiding gun owners are not the problem in all the many posts above. Thousands of deaths are not caused by responsible owners.
It's gun culture that causes someone to feel entitled to enter a supermarket heavily armed with body armor causing a panic and leaving people wondering But Did He Break the Law?. It's gun culture when a kid feels enabled to shoot a disliked teacher with a pistol or when teens have shootouts on our streets. It's ingrained in our culture from the days of the Wild West, TV shows and, again, the machinations of the military-industrial complex dumping their product on our streets.
On the other hand,I have a feeling few would want to get woke on guns and ban all those shootup TV shows,
