    What kind of sick animal shoots a baby in a stroller because the intended victim of the robbery did not have money with her? What better example of the failure of our culture when two teens are so callous as to kill this little child? People who think we can pass laws on who can legally buy a gun, or what type of gun is legal, and that this will stop the horrific crimes that occur every day are fools. The same anti-gun crowd seems never to be willing to blame the culture within certain parts of our society that creates the young monsters such as were involved in this case. Government dependency, lifelong victim status identification, children having children, the lack of stable families, etc., etc., make it all the more important that law abiding citizens have the means to protect themselves. God help us all.

    While I agree completely, it is unfortunately not politically correct to acknowledge that the culture and chosen lifestyle of a segment of our population sees this type of behavior as acceptable. Shame on you for even noticing........

    Both of shooters were under 18. You have to wonder what their parents have done to raise such two upstanding young men?

    Bringing children into this world that you are unwilling or incapable of raising properly should be a crime.

    Personal responsibility is becoming an unknown concept to an ever-growing segment of the population.

    They need to be tried as adults, and if guilty, and convicted receive the death penalty. Unreal. :fire:

    Human life does not mean much to some people it seems.

    That's the problem. "Politically Correct". How can we ever expect to change the actual problem when we refuse to address the problem as a problem and not a "lifestyle". And it amazes me that we are afraid or hesitant to call a spade a spade because the spade might get offended. But it's just fine to call us (gun owners) crazy gun toting lunatics. I mean, really? I think it's time we make some fundamental changes to the way we address societal issues. It doesn't involve being heartless. It only involves being truthful and forthright in our assessments.

    Very sad and tragic, but still off topic.
