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

Would all of you who are against private ownership of weapons but who also eat meat be willing to pay the people who raise that meat additional money per pound so that they can cover the losses from predators that they'd incur without a gun?

This would also go for anyone who wears wool, mohair or angora.

I swear, the disconnect between urban and rural in this century is unbelievable. You would think the clothes you wear and the food you eat was replicated.

Gun owners, you are not helping by shrugging off parents who irresponsibly give way-too-young children guns. You can tell a 5 year-old "only with adult supervision" till you're blue in the face, but that doesn't mean he's always going to pay attention to you.

For the record, I learned to shoot bb guns at six, and handled my first shotgun at 12. Seems like reasonable ages to me.
