I agree that we need to have a more strict background check on those who are a contributing citizen and plan on purchasing or carrying a weapon. But, that will never happen. It's similar to government assistance. We have illegal residents in this country who are receiving more then they deserve because the background checks are lacking.
I have my permit to carry and I know the rules and laws surrounding that responsibility. A 16 year old has no right to have access to a shotgun for 1. 2, where were the parents? 5:30 in the afternoon and there was no one around except for a friend/"Witness"?
Tragic loss and an avoidable one at that.
Wow, c'mon, that's just a blatant lie:
just some recent numbers (not all the same year, this data is pretty hard to compile), and you'll notice that every single country with stricter gun control laws has fewer deaths every year than we do.
Certainly can't argue that a 16 shouldn't have access to a shotgun, though...perhaps if licensing and enforcement was even half as strict as it is to drive a car...
