58. The gun was to blame?

This story is a tragedy but are we simply going to say the gun made them do it? No other factors? I'm sorry but normal children don't go around murdering other children and then potential witnesses. I wonder if any of these kids are in a gang. If the only thing you take away from this story is that a gun caused these crimes; your being willfully ignorant.

How about lack of parental responsibility? I wonder how active and involved these children's parents are. How did that child get a firearm? A parent or a fellow gang member? How about lack of upbringing? I knew in kindergarten that hitting people was unacceptable, how does a child come to think murder is even an option? Do any of these cross your mind? Normal children don't go around murdering other children, something must have gone very wrong before that even for this to come to be. Will you acknowledge that?
