Well, you know, the same people who resent any sort of laws at all regarding guns. Logic does not play into it (a deer shot with a machine gun won't be usable for eating or trophy display, but they need them for hunting, don't you know).

I know... we Pagan's really shouldn't watch the News at all, huh? Just last night, I was crying over it as well because of some of the other stories. :'(

I'm kind of middle of the road on this. On the one hand, there's over-regulation. Certain types of guns, for hunting and whatnot, should not have to go through all sorts of hassle for people who wish to acquire them by legal means.

But in this case, you would think that these idiots would know enough about sub-machine guns to realize that the kickback is quite fierce. I mean, this is a Gun Club for cripes sake! So to knowingly hand that type of gun to an 8 year old is beyond me. %-\

A gun club, a shooting range... at the most, this kid should've been given a pistol with (I don't know my bullets well) but some fairly harmless kind of slugs. Used with supervision, and in an aim and shoot type of practice, such as would be used in hunting... okay, I can see getting away with that. (Nothing I'd bring any kid of mine if I had one to, but still, if it's teaching hunting, it's a bit more valid.) But I'm sorry, the only thing you shoot with a semi-automatic like that is another person! So what kind of lesson is this teaching?

And people wonder what's wrong with our world today?? It's idiots like this who have no concept of morals! I've always been against it because my morals are not necessarily the same as everyone else's, but perhaps we should let the schools go back to teaching morals in the classroom. This and other similar situations have only underscored the fact that there's a huge handful of parents today that don't have a freakin' clue!!

Well, as I said, logic does not play into it.

And I agree completely about the over-regulation thing. 99% of it isn't keeping criminals from using the guns anyway - they aren't trying to buy them legally in the first place.
