    From the article:

    and

    They want to get their own sons off street corners, and put an adult presence in their lives, and they attempt to do this by organizing "walks" rather than by parenting their own kids.

    Um, okay.

    This is from The Onion, right? Some sort of silly parody?

    No one can be this stupid to blame a piece of metal (and the wrong piece of metal) for a criminal act, right? Right?:uhoh:

    Fathers - AWOL

    The fact that fathers are nowhere to be seen in this story explains a lot of the problem to me.

    "So far, 13 mothers have joined the group."

    I had more than 13 chipmunks in my yard yesterday, but the newspaper didn't cover the story.

    More or less the way you can step in dog droppings if you're not careful where you walk.

    Can't say I'm surprised. It's not about fighting crime, no matter what they say. It's just easier to join the crowd and emotionally shout ‘no guns' instead of facing facts and dealing up-front with their problems. Such as living in a bad neighborhood, or having a poorly raised kid. Rather than being a good parent and taking responsibility in their children's lives, they'll just go on a few anti-gun walks so they feel like they're making a difference. Then when their kid is in some gang shooting, they can blame it on the ‘gun culture', ‘lack of gun laws', and ‘easy firearm access'.

    Way to go folks. Forget encouraging mature parenting. Let's all go on a walk and try to pass more gun laws to prevent stabbings! :scrutiny:

    It's much easier to knee-jerk and form an anti-gun group than it is to actually take an active and positive role in raising your own child. The tough questions are thus avoided.
