Parents Accountability is the Right Move

Oxford school shooting: Parents charged with manslaughter

School shootings have become something of a norm in the USA. Nowhere else in the world do they have repeated school shooting without anything been done about it. Thoughts and prayers cannot bring back a dead child but it appears that is all whichever party is in office, has to offer. Holding the parents of Ethan Crumbley’s accountable for the shooting death of four students is the right step moving forward.

Buying a fifteen- year-old a gun as a Christmas gift was irresponsible. After being called to the school twice in response to their son’s bizarre behavior they did nothing about it. Taking the gun and locking it away safely should have been a priority. Instead they argued that he should remain in school fully knowing he had the means to carry out the acts depicted in his drawings. Their lack of responsible parenting has resulted in four families mourning the loss of their children.

I hope this serves as a deterrent to others. You have the right to your second amendment, no on can deny that. However, that right should not infringe on the rights of others to live. A gun is not a toy to gift a child. Be responsible parents and gun holders.
