i'm sorry but when it's everyone's constitutional right to be armed this will happen isn't this a daily event in the US?

Sadly noted. Just brought tears to my eyes. I've come to the conclusion that if I don't speak out against guns completely, I'm complicit in their violent use. My dream is that we have laws similar to the ones passed in Great Britain and Australia. Gun nuts are wickedly against this, of course. But, they don't "play fair" when over 90% of Americans just want better background checks (eliminating the sales of guns at gun shows...), the Assault Weapons Ban re-instated, and the multiple clips outlawed....their expensive lobbying caused Congress to pass absolutely nothing at all. So, I'm "all in" against them.

This just pissed me off to no end. I hope that man goes to jail for life. I am so sick of the senseless violence that has resulted from the lack of action by Congress. People are so damn worried about their 2nd amendment rights that they can't see beyond the end of the barrel to what is going on around them. I am sending you all of my healing thoughts DJ and I pray for a complete recovery both mentally and physically. What a hideous thing to do to a child.

At least law enforcement took it seriously enough to arrest the shooter and put his bail high. Maybe this guy could be another poter boy for the NRA.
Prayers and love go out to help Donald as he recovers.

That's terrible! It seems like children can no longer do the things they used to enjoy without getting shot.

Firstly, why and secondly why was he not charged with attempted murder? It certainly sounds premeditated.
Poor kid.

this is a virus it seems... but CNN and the "industry" will probably pick "THIS" one up and run with it HARD.

"child endangerment"??
what is wrong with this country?
this could have killed the boy! it's a miracle he is alive.
his childhood has been stolen, his family are hurting.
Nothing will undo what he has done. he must charge him for attempted murder!

ican only feel sorrow for this poor little boy and his family, and pain for their tragedy.
