    Default 9 year old shoots sister of vide game controller.

    Another reason not to allow loaded firearms in the night stand.

    Another very sad incident with kids having access when not supervised.

    All the secure storage laws in the world won't make one bit of difference to Americans that are afraid the boogy man will get 'em. Ya just can't fix stupid.
    It's better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.

    He could have just as well got a knife and stabbed her to death - to do something like that over a controller makes me think that the boy wasn't being raised right -

    It's definitely a parenting problem. This is the biggest issue in the world today lack of parenting skills lack of discipline and lack of self-respect. Kids that have no respect for themselves will have no respect for others .

    It's definitely a parenting problem. The problem is parents leaving handguns where 9 year olds can easily find them.

    When I was 9 I knew were the guns and the ammo were.......I also had a very good Idea of how many years, months, weeks, days, hours, minute, and seconds it would be till I could sit again if I touched them.

    My guess at the time was somewhere around my sixtyish birthday.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    My father had a shotgun in his closet growing up but I wouldnt dare think to even go in his room when he wasnt there let alone even go near it. He taught us to respect guns and knives. Alot of parents these days rely on schools to teach their kids everything. Values and morals need to be reinfoced with parents though, schools dont teach respect.

    Yes he could have, but with a 13 year old sister fighting and mom hearing it would not have been as instant.

    I know that I had respect for firearms at a very young age but I also know that a 9 year old does not reason the same as an adult and putting 2 and 2 together to kill his sister would have taken more planning than just grabbing the gun and going bang.

    There are many safes out there that are very easy access with a key, a code or a finger print, technology is pretty sweet, those would have saved the life of this kid and not encroached on your rights one bit.

    People that babble on about beating "respect" into children only serve to defend the morons who leave guns where children can easily access them. They both cause governments to introduce "safe storage" legislation.

    A responsible parent teaches respect. A responsible gun owner locks his guns up so children can't get to them.
