Kids and guns
Placeholder Image
Whenever the subject of guns is brought up, it engenders strong opinion on both sides -- from those who believe in absolute Second Amendment rights, and from those who believe that nobody should be allowed to own a gun in any circumstances. Like most people, we fall somewhere in the middle, solidly on the side of Americans to own firearms but a bit dubious about why it makes sense for people to own Uzis and other automatic weapons that are made with the express purpose of killing people. But in the end, much of the gun ownership issue comes down to common sense, and the recent Arizona incident in which a 9-year-old girl accidentally killed the man who was instructing her in how to fire an Uzi is a classic example of horrid judgment.
