Parents who buy toy guns culpable, too

Success - Article sent! close

While I am not a sportsman, I have friends and relatives who hunt and fish. Some live in rural areas, and I respect and understand why they have guns. What floors me is the "toys" that I saw for sale this month. Several models of "toy" semi-automatic weapons with plastic "magazines" that rapid-fire multiple rounds of "Nerf bullets."

The parents of 17-year-old Claire Davis are mourning their daughter who was killed by a lunatic classmate. Those who manufacture, sell and buy these "toys" have blood on their hands today. I wonder what type of gifts this deviant received over the years. Why are we not hearing from or about these parents? Is there no accountability?
