The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Same as the fact that, last I heard, more kids are hurt/killed with knives than firearms: some kid gets knifed in school, local story unless particularly gory; some kid takes an unloaded gun to school, national news for AT LEAST a day.
A kid beats another within an inch of his life? Not news. Another brings a necklace shaped like a gun? Frontpager in the town paper, nationally mentioned.
Just wanted to let you know that I blogrolled your site today! Great site...
Can you point me to some good information regarding training youngsters to use firearms? Saw the Girl Scout activity at camp but am wondering if there are other programs. Probably the NRA..
Kevin, couple points--Greenville city's population may only be 56K, but the county has almost 400K people. It's actually one of, if not the, most populated county in the state.
The local newspaper's website has at least one article on the story--http://www.greenvilleonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060712/NEWS01/60712008 shows they have caught the fifth suspect.
Sorry--I misread the story; they are seeking the fifth suspect.
It's interesting that three of the four they've caught so far live in the same apartment complex.
Yeah george shouldn't have had to do that and if the brainwashing in the public schools had been successful with him his whole family might be dead. The left will never get it. The kids next challenge will be to figure out how to be a hero (he is) without becoming a bully. That's tough at 12!
The reason our son was trained was to keep something like the last story from not happening. He wasn't trained to protect...he was taught to keep the curiosity away. Thanks for the post.
