Kids with Guns

Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Or so the story goes.  So what happens when it’s a 4-year old doing the killing? In two incidents last week two different 4-year olds were able to access a loaded gun and accidently discharge it, killing a 6 year old playmate and a sheriff’s deputy’s wife.  The result is there are now two dead, two children who will never be able to forget the tragedy they were a part of, and several families in ruins.

There are so many arguments that can come from these tragedies.  We need better gun control, better gun safety measures, or perhaps we need to ban guns entirely? The options are endless, but what is clear is something must be done and an open, respectful public discourse is needed.

How can you begin?
