    Toddler was a good shot, too bad the parents were stupid enough to leave wife's purse with a loaded gun in it for the kid to reach.

    More irresponsibility from gun owners.

    Authorities have taken their child away from them for the time being, but maybe too late.
    Thankfully he shot his parents rather than himself or his little sister.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    What's your point?
    The point is your lethal response is your first response rather than the last on far too many occassions as is borne out by your stats

    It could just as easily been so, as happens many times every day over there

    Who cares as long as the guns are protected. Thats all that matters to most respondents here it seems

    Most violent in Europe ? Have you ever visited it ? On the contrary our overall official crime stats are the lowest since 1981 so it looks like all those gun bans have been helping

    Crime at lowest level for 30 years | UK news | The Guardian
    So what? Is someone killed it with a firearm morally superior to someone killed by another means?

    You'd rather have 50 murders committed without a gun, then 10 committed with one?

    Nothing to do with morality just statistics. You are over 40 times more likely to be shot in the US than the UK and as a consequence 5 times more likely to be murdered overall given that three quarters of your murders involve firearms

    You'd rather have 50 murders committed without a gun, then 10 committed with one?
    No I'd rather make murder more difficult to commit in the first place. Guns make murder too easy

    Lethal force is my last response. Please do not speak on things you know nothing about.

    Then you have to oppose gun control since gun control makes crime worse.

    That point was not supposed to be addressed to you personally, but I'm sure you knew that

    The worst crime on the books is surely murder. Your murder rates are by far the highest in the developed world because of mass casual access to firearms which are used in three quarters of them. Since we introduced comprehensive gun controls over recent decades our already low gun crime has significantly diminished and our criminal fraternity now find it far more difficult and expensive to acquire them.

    I have to wonder how Europeans claim to have any ground to question the American education system when someone like yourself continually 'misspeaks'. Maybe Europeans shoot first and ask questions later, but here in America we shoot only when we have no other option. Having a gun is about keeping that last resort on the table. About 1/3rd of the time, simply displaying the gun stops the attack cold.
