Tragedy in Chiang Mai as six year old shoots elder sister dead with dad's gun

Of course, leftists will make this into a gun control issue as they do with every gun tragedy.  Simply put, the parents are fully responsible for what happened.  Perhaps the worst part of this is not even the death, but the fact that the 6-year old kid will have to live with the knowledge that she shot her sister to death....for the rest of her life.  But at the end of the day, we should not be taking away the rights of the majority to defend themselves with a gun for the relatively minute number of instances where guns are misused.  That is flawed thinking.

Flawed thinking??? What are you like.

 

I think a sensible person might rather say we should not be allowing people to have guns without an extremely good reason given the relatively minute number of occasions when people need one to defend themselves.

 

Anyone who thinks unlimited guns are a great idea in any country needs to look at the statistics (the real ones, not the utter nonsense invented by the NRA in the US).

Almost every week we head such gun shooting happen in the USA, shooting in streets, shopping malls, schools etc,,

the assailant mostly get killed and the case closed at that point,, nothing serious,, nothing more than this,,

but it could be labeled as a very savage terror action, based on the geographic location and involved names,,

A simple regulation requiring, at minimum a trigger lock on guns, and better a trigger lock and a locked safe.  

 

Works in other countries provided its followed.

It works even better never to keep them loaded and to keep the ammunition in a safe.

A wise parent who keeps a gun around, keeps it unloaded, without ammunition. That way nothing tragic happens. The parents are to blame. Hope they get locked up.

Flawed thinking what drugs are you taking, give everybody a gun in case they may need to defend themselves, rubbish.

More guns = more tragic accidents like this, more gun crime and more death. It really is that simple.

Any country that has strict gun laws have fewer deaths by fire arms. And really how many times in your life have you ever needed a fire arm to protect yourself

A tragic and totally avoidable death. My understanding is that Hill tribesmen are undocumented therefore the gun and ammo must be too. RIP to the child.

Not an argumentative comment, genuine curiosity. Does this really happen a lot in the US? I know the US has this (in my opinion) crazy and outdated law on gun ownership but I always thought that the storage of guns in the home was strictly adhered to, in other words no loaded gun stored at home.

 

 

Gazzpa, I understand that what happens in the USA is far more interesting, entertaining and enlightening than what happens in Thailand.

 

However, the news article is about Thailand, lets discuss that.   :thumbsup:

So want training to go with every gun sold. So sad.

 

 So you're demanding training for six-year-olds now? Absurd.

 

 It's no different than back in the good old US of A.  With society awash in guns, these kinds of tragedies are unavoidable. 

 

 Keep clutching your <deleted> guns until one day they are held by cold dead hands
