To my eye, it is 100% an upbringing issue, if a child is taught weapons safety and responsibility early on, they will practice it all their lives (I know it worked for me, my Dad caught me pointing a bb gun at my brother's dog one time and I lost the bb gun, my opportunities to go hunting that year, and my ability to sit for a month all in one fell swoop).

I never said I was going to shoot it, if I remember correctly I was playing Army (never stopped since ) and the dog was a Nazi prisoner.

I think it depends on the kid. There are lots of adults who are not mature enough to own guns either.

It is upbrining, just about everyone is right on this subject. I dont think there could be a right or wrong. Teachin a kid right from wrong is the first step, not just about guns either. If a kid knows right from wrong, then he learn responsibility and from there is where gun safety comes into play.

I totally agree that some adults are not that mature but i don't totally agree on the upbringing part although it does start by learning right from wrong but what happens when some poor kid just snaps and kills everyone in his class?
