    :uhoh:

    I cant find any articles that have been drawn up yet, but this is all over the radio here..

    I guess a 13-year old was found in Barnett Elementary School in Fairbanks Alaska with a Ruger .44 Magnum with 65 rounds of ammunition and a Medal Of Honor: Pacific Assault computer game...

    :uhoh:
    I'm gonna look for articles... if there isnt any, It'll be on the 6 o'clock news and if not, I'm sure the newspaper will have it up by midnight.

    The owner of the Ruger should go to jail. Idiots who let their children take their guns are gonna ruin it for all responsible gun owners.:mad:

    This is what happens when kids have no supervised exposure to firearms.

    Blame the parents.

    ok... i just watched the news report, turns out he had 86 rounds of additional ammunition, a 6-inch fixed blade knife, Medal of Honor game disc, and the stainless ruger .44 magnum.. (which was loaded)

    They said that they didnt know how he got the weapons or who owned them, nor whether the student planned on using it or not.. but they sent the kid to the hospital for a psych evaluation

    Turns out that a kid overheard him talking about his gun, and so he reported it to one of the school staff...

    I'm still looking for any online articles

    How times have changed. I bought my first gun (Mossberg .22 rifle) at 12, put it over the handlebars of my bike and rode home from the store with it. At 13, I picked up a .38 S&W 2" barrel. I can't remember anybody ever saying anything about it until I was in my 20's and moved to California.

    The fact that he had a video game is irrelevant. Unless, of course, you believe games cause crime/violence. Unless youre trying to argue that he was hunting down Nazis with a Ruger...

    Of course, they are gonna blame it on the games :p

    I own Medal of Honor. It never made me take my weapons to school. :confused: Of course, my version is European.

    How could this kid get his parents' pistol if it was locked up? You can't just simply hide a firearm from children...they're little detectives. I'll bet in the future they'll be buying a vault...a massive, heavy, steel vault, with a big lock. That's how you keep kids safe from their temporary immaturity.

    Why? Have people become so feeble minded that they can't handle this by themselves? "No one got hurt, but let me tell you what to think anyway."
