  • No, my high school had a second floor, it just fell off in the earthquake. After that they kinda decided to build it out on ground level.

    (Tall buildings + Blue Clay Soil + 9.0 Earthquakes = No es bueno)

      That's a terrible defense. And I don't see that as a defense for allowing a weapon loose to murder people. They supplied the gun to the shooter, who was their minor kid. Minor kids are not as responsible, or we would not call them minors. So the parents have a LOT of liability in this case.

      The fact that clear threats have come out prior to this- roughly the same time as the shooter apparently got this gun- yea- "nothing could be done" is not an excuse. The kid should not have been given a gun at all.

      Responsible parents would have gifted the gun, but have had it stored in a secure gun locker only to be used in the supervision of the parents. IMHO, for all we hear about responsible gun owners, doing that is average.

        Given everyone's pretty obvious liability, it is the smart move. If the parents say the wrong thing, they could easily end up in jail.

          Is that what happened here? If they did give him the gun obviously they would be liable but if he took it from them it’s on him.

            No. This line is not acceptable. Lock up the parents.

                If the parents can't secure their guns from their kid, then they can't keep them secure from anyone else who should not get the gun. They are liable either way.

                Because they are parents, they are double liable, since it's their kid.

                Stop making excuses in the idea that "nothing more can be done" because if that's the excuse, then it pretty much demonstrates that gun owners can't be responsible- and the 2nd amendment should be repealed.

                  They can't be responsible and it should be repealed. They've proven their irresponsibility over and over and over again.

                      Minnesota Dram Shop laws hold parents responsible if their kids get drunk at home and drive and hurt someone. (underage of course)

                        Plenty of responsible gun owners never have kids get access to their guns. Plenty can be done and should be required under penalty of law to be done. Gun safes exist for a reason.

                          Parents, or homeowners, can be held civilly liable for damages if they either furnished the alcohol to the minor, or if they had control of the premises, were in a reasonable position to prevent the consumption of alcohol, and either knowingly or recklessly permitted the consumption and the consumption caused the intoxication of the person who drove the car.

                          A parent or guardian can be held criminally liable for furnishing or giving alcoholic beverages to a person under 21, unless it was done with the expectation that the alcohol would be consumed solely at home.
                          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                              Unfortunately we're not that kind of behind. Just the annoying kind of behind. Liquor laws are puritanical around here.
