    Clearly stricter gun laws could have prevented this incident from happening……hope you boys enjoyed the pizza party.

      they must have really been hungry hope the time that they are going to do was worth those 5 pizzas but then again they say when you do dirt it comes right back at you

  • MyTakeOnIt

    Answer me this anyone:
    If you are a parent who legally owns a firearm and your child steals it from an unsecured location to commit a crime, would you be willing to be held partially responsible for the crime?

    Remember now. You reared the child. Your values were instilled upon the child. You owned the weapon. Your weapon was not secure.
