OK, this horrifying thing happened this week in Kentucky.  

A 5 year old boy accidentally shot and killed his 2 year old sister with his youth rifle he received as a gift from his parents.

Let's say that again: HIS PARENTS GAVE A 5 YEAR OLD A REAL GUN AS A GIFT.

There is actually a company that makes such small weapons and markets them to children. It is called Cricket. I was going to include their website in this post but it now down.  I looked at it earlier this week, and believe me, it will leave you speechless.

But let's say that again: THERE IS A COMPANY THAT MAKES AND MARKETS FIREARMS FOR CHILDREN.

I have a grandson who just turned 5. He's a great kid. He's funny and really smart. And there is no way I would ever let him near a firearm.

 I don't understand this mentality; the local authorities said "it's our way of life".

If your way of live accepts the death of 2 year olds at the hand of a 5 year old who was given a firearm as a gift as something that just happens, and we cannot do anything about it, I think your way of life is really messed up.
