    Guess he should have paid more attention to who his kid was hanging out with.

    Thank God I do not have one of those evil death machines that makes me do its bidding!

    1. avatar Rad Man says:

      That’s why I got rid of my last revolver. As soon as I left the house without it, it would run around and do all sorts of things.

  3. avatar Joseph says:

    Been using that line for decades now. IT. Must be a lie for I don’t know of any firearm being convicted of murder. It’s always been the person holding it when it went offs fault.

    1. avatar Don says:

      Guns are so bad they skip the trial and do a summary meltdown.

  4. avatar BLAMMO says:

    Why do you think there are so many shootouts in police stations every day? Everybody has a gun.

      There was that one time in Terminator. . .

      1. avatar barnbwt says:

        …and I, Robot, though they’d probably say ‘the robot did it’

    He was kidnapped before being shot. I wonder how the gun managed to that off.

  6. avatar Mister Fleas says:

    “The gun did it.”

    Dear Lord, these people are animists!

  7. avatar ANdrew Lias says:

    I’m sure he was a “good kid” and that the parents had their heads in the sand……….or up some place else entirely. If your teenage kid is hanging out with gang bangers “trading up” their weed and a smaller gun for another gun then there’s probably something up.

  8. avatar ThomasR says:

    “I am not responsible!”. For anything.

    The battle cry of the progressive/statist.

      But everybody and everything else are.

    Hey, when my gun went off all by itself I wound up with a kid. Stupid gun.

  10. avatar Galtha58 says:

    Link to the article leads to a page that demands a trial subscription along with a credit card number. If not given then can’t read the article.

    1. avatar Gunr says:

      I got the same thing, Everybody’s out the my last buck!

  11. avatar Rick the Bear says:

    Can. Not. Be. Done.

    To suggest that people are responsible for their action would undermine the entire industry of victimization. Think of all those people out of work.

    Of course, when that point is made, those Industrial Victimization Complex workers counter that, if not for the gun, the loser(s) would just be sitting in their chairs typing BS on social media and no innocents would die. “Cause everyone in that room would be fine if he filled a jug with $2 worth of gasoline and chucked it in the classroom. /sarc

  12. avatar Pantera Vazquez says:

    I have to requalify on my weapon this month, as I must every year to maintain my occupational firearm license. If I don’t make it, can I blame my SR-9? Talk in my gun cabinet is they wanna make me look bad. Those Evil items…..

  13. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    And THIS is precisely why there will never be peace in the ghetto. Fadda’ pflegma and jesse can’t concede some of the youts are bad boys-just blame gunz. DUH…

      Who is my Fadda?

      1. avatar Former Water Walker says:

        Father Michael Pfleger-St. Sabina church on Chiraq’s sout’ side. But you knew that Tom…know thine enemy.

  14. avatar Rusty Chains says:

    An inanimate object has no will of it’s own and a parent who thinks the guns pulled their own triggers is not fit to be a parent, of course we already knew that in this case!

  15. avatar tmm says:

    So, what’s the gun looking at, 20 to life?

    1. avatar Indiana Tom says:

      The gun is looking at hot chicks who will give it pleasure. A special treat!

    2. avatar William Burke says:

      Give him a minute, will ya? He’s smoking.

  16. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    My gun seems to have a mind of its own and goes off to create a kid who the doctor said could not be created.
    Oh, we are talking about the metal, plastic and wood thingies!
    Nah, they just sit where I left them and do not do a darn thing.
    Lazy guns!

  17. avatar Brian says:

    Save a criminal, throw the guns in jail

  18. avatar Publius says:

    I realize it’s not very libertarian of me, but I almost support forcibly sterilizing anyone stupid enough to believe an inanimate object is responsible for a person’s actions.

  19. avatar Bob R says:

    Pay wall, forget it.

  20. Lets see if we can get people thinking for themselves.
