arma virumque cano (et alia)
I like the way the news guy called I automatic pistol. The kid's explanation probably qualifies in the top ten of stupid. "He had told the teachers that he had initially gone hunting over the weekend with some friends, and that he forgot to put the gun back up," http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?section=news/local&id=9391438 He went hunting and took a .32 auto, and apparently wore the same hoodie AND pants (magazine in pants) to school. And apparently he is on probation for some other crime AND enough of a behavior issue as to be sent to an alternative school where pat downs are routine. He might have forgotten he had the gun on him, but it doesn't really matter, its likely that the conditions of his probation say no guns at all. I'm not going to blame the parents until someone comes out and says its theirs. Just as likely to something he got it elsewhere.
When did we stop holding parents responsible for their children's behavior?
So you're suggesting that if a minor kills someone the parent should be charged with homicide also?
Don't know what the punishment would be, but certainly a parent is responsible for their minor children. If a kid vandalizes, or breaks a law the parent can be held financially and legally responsible. Is it only gun related charges, that a parent is not responsible for their minor childerns actions?
And if the kid takes daddy's gun and does something wrong with it, you can bet your ass daddy should pay.
So SS you are saying parents are not responsible for the actions of their minor children?
Like the rest of the cowards, no response.
That depends on what you consider responsible. So far, we have no idea where the gun came from, other than his lame story. I'm sure the police are checking. If one of the parents gave him a gun when he went hunting, then sure. I don't see a parent doing that when the kid is already on probation, and has likely been ordered to not possess a weapon. North Carolina does have a safe storage law, so if the gun is found to belong to the parents, then they could be prosecuted.
Legally and financially responsible for the acts of their minor children, already stated. Not sure why you bother to respond with lies, but that's your character. Not often I run into a lying coward soldier.
First he refuses to respond, then he denies that parents are responsible for their minor children's actions. You are in for a surprise when you become a parent, bit I suppose you will never find out since your kind cannot reproduce.
