    Well lay it all out for us. Who should be allowed to have and raise children? Should you need a permit, from the government?

    Not a permit, a license.

    What are your grand ideas to achieving "no guns", even for criminals?

    Make a case against it.

    A government license to have children? It sounds familiar?

    And the guns, that's easy. We take them all and if you show up with one we use a flamethrower on you.

    I assume that they would if they were serious about rehabilitation. Of course there would be a small percentage that is not capable of being rehabilitated, but that is for the experts to decide. I wouldn't know anything about these boys, their lives, their upbringings, if they suffer from a mental illness or not.

    Ok. It would prevent **** like this happening though. It's a more effective idea than any you've presented.

    Wow, what a fool-proof idea!

    fair enough Chris. The problem in this particular circumstance is that these kids killed for the only reason of relieving boredom. If certain factors such as "during commission of another crime" are present it could be reasoned that these teens were caught in a heat of the moment situation and didn't have the emotional maturity to assess the situation properly, problem here is they killed specifically to kill, I just don't know how that can be reconciled.

    I never said it wouldn't take time, and flamethrowers.
