Re: 5 year old given rifle as gift, kills 2 year old sister

The first time I ever fired a gun was at Boy Scout camp when I was 12 years old. That was the age at which you graduated from air rifles (BB guns) to real firearms for target shooting, and it seems a reasonable age to me. But giving a gun to a five-year-old? That's just sheer lunacy.

Oh, and I haven't had much to do with guns since. I'm a lousy shot.
