I like to think I'm pretty hard to shock. That, over the course of the years, I've seen and heard just about the worst of what our great nation can come up with. But this story, about a 5th grader convicted of conspiracy to murder a classmate, gave me pause today. I guess my concept of "responsible gun ownership" is quite seriously at odds with the type of nitwit that lets his 10 year kid have access to a .45 pistol. If the "gun enthusiasts" (ahem) who constantly pepper our little discussion forum with angry screeches about their God-given right to bear arms would once in a while acknowledge there is a problem in the gun-owning community that needs addressing, then I'd take them a little more seriously.
