I get that Americans have very different laws when it comes to guns compared to us Norwegians, but a "youth gun"? According to AOL, the gun, a "youth model 20-gauge shotgun" had been given to the boy by his father for Christmas. Less than two months later the boy used it to kill his father's girlfriend.
According to OCShooters.com, children should have guns for "shooting at targets, plinking at tin cans or starting to train for the Olympics." This of course makes it absolutely necessary to make guns especially for children. So even their little fingers can pull the trigger.
To quote blogger X Curmudgeon;
"What the hell is a youth model shotgun? Who would give an 11-year-old a shotgun? More insanity from the gun lobby. Why not make it legal for him to drink whiskey (a youth model) while we're at it."What is it they say... "guns don't kill, people kill people".
Well stop giving people guns then!
If you're too young to make a life, you're too young to take one.
