    The parents' website contains links to such groups as the Brady Campaign. The comments on the article were largely against the idea. The parents are quite misinformed since state law already prohibits giving a handgun to a minor under age 16 without parental consent, posession by a minor without parental consent, and of course there's federal law on the matter. I hope our legislature ignores them.

    In reading the bio on this kid, it appears that he was an outstanding achiever. That sometimes makes for an unhappy person.

    I have to wonder, if the parents have aksed themselves, "What could they have done to prevent this? What did they miss that would have given them warning that something wasn't right with their son?"

    Were they such high achievers themselves that they didn't take time to really "know" their son, so they might have noticed a change?

    This may not have been a suicide either. Since there were no witnesses, it could have been a muder by one of his "buddies" and they made it look like a suicide.

    If this kid wanted to off himself, he didn't need a gun to do it.

    I'm not attempting to judge the parents since I know nothing about them. Just posing some questions.

    I think the anti-gun groups may have found themselves a pair of greiving "useful idiots" to help push more anti-gun laws.

    the first kid broke the law by taking the gun, he also broke the law by bringing it to a school, the second kid broke the law by handling the gun. so clearly what we need is more laws.

    Suicide is equally as tragic no matter what the means of death are, but why is it that when some one hangs themselves we don't scream "we need stricter rope laws"

    also, would these people be wanting stricter car laws if their kid had died in a car accident? we have more high school kids die each year from car "accidents" then we do from suicide.

    My other feeling is, if this kid really wanted to kill himself it would have happened with or without the gun.

    I hope that Vermonts pre emptive gun laws put these people to a stop.

    NO, VERMONT LAWS ARE FINE AS THEY ARE.

    VERMONT AND ALASKA DO NOT NEED ANY MORE FIREARMS LEGISLATION THAN WHAT THEY HAVE NOW, WHICH FOR THE MOST PART HAS BEEN SHOVED DOWN THEIR THROATS FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, GONE AWRY, THAT COMPLETELY IGNORES STATES RIGHTS TO START WITH.

    IT IS NOONES FAULT IF 'XU' KILLED HIMSELF, IF 'XU' WAS GOING TO KILL HIMSELF HE WOULD HAVE DONE SO ANYWAY.

    I DO NOT CARE HOW SAD THE STORY IS ABOUT 'XU', PEOPLE DIE ALL THE TIME. MOST PEOPLE WHO DIE USUALLY HAVE NO SAY IN THE MATTER AS ITIS SUDDEN OR INADVERTANT. 'XU' KILLED HIMSELF ON PURPOSE, SOMETHING THAT IS NOONES FAULT OR RESPONSIBILITY OTHER THAN HIS. HE MADE THAT CHOICE, NOONE FORCED HIM TO DO SO.

    IT DOES NOT MATTER IF 'XU' WAS 5 YEARS OLD, 15 YEARS OLD, OR... 75 YEARS OLD, HE MADE THAT DECISION FOR HIMSELF.

    NOONE IN VERMONT NEEDS TOSUFFER ANY KIND OF CIVIL OR CRIMINAL PENALTY OR BE FACED WITH ADDITIONAL FIREARMS LEGISLATION BECAUSE OF 'XU'S' ACTIONS.

    BESIDES... IF THE PARENTS ARE ANGRY OR FRUSTRATED ABOUT THIS, THEN, SOMEBODY SHOULD CONFRONT THEN TO MAKE GOOD AN ACCOUNT OF PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY. PERHAPS, MAYBE, 'XU' WOULD NEVER HAVE KILLED HIMSELF IF THE PARENTS WERE MORE INVOLVED IN THIS MATTER. MADE WHAT VERMONT NEEDS IS MORE PARENTING LAWS INSTEAD, HUH, AS OPPOSED TO MORE FIREARMS LAWS!

    THENAGAIN, THOUGH, TRY EXPLANING THAT TOTHE BRADY CAMPAIGN AND ALL OF THEIR NARROW MINDED SHEEPISH FOLLOWERS!

    No, actuallyI had just discussed this issue in several other forums.

    It has recently been brought to my attention that all capital letters is against the rules of this forum, and it is considered shouting.

    I am not too Internet savvy, and I did not realize this when I first started posting my blogs in several forums.

    I wil adjust my writing style to consist of standard capitalization only. Make no mistake, I do not consider myself any more important than anyone else. Also, I do not consider my thoughts or ideas any more important than anyone elses either.

    Forgive me for writing in all capital letters, and know that I will change my writing style effective immediately.

    aadvark, it's not against the rules, but, as you said, it is the internet equivalent of "shouting" and is generally reserved for brief points of emphasis.

    Ettiquite aside, you said some very valid things and, as a legal Vermont resident (haven't lived there for 19 years, thanks USAF...) I don't wish to seeour laws changed for the worse either. Although I think we should set up an optional permit system, like Alaska's, to give us some reciprocity with other states until the Thune bill goes through. Getting legal to carry outside of the state can be a REAL PAIN IN THE KEISTER!!!

    (Note the proper use of all caps... )

    Carry safely, friend!

    there are classes you can take in Vermont to get Florida and Utah carry permits. Hell a copy of your police record and a $20 check will get you a NH permit.

    Having a Vermont specific voluntary permit is just one step closer to mandatory permitting. Just like the gun storage laws that are being proposed by Xu s family is just one step towards gun registration. (after all how do you enforce gun storage laws without knowing who has the guns)

    I think that The United States Congress should make good a Law that says if you have a permit in any State, it is good in every State. However, I am fully aware this bill failed in Congress by... I am not sure, but I think it was two votes!

    Aside from that, each State should adapt Vermont/Alaska style carry Laws. All Adult Law-abiding Citizens should be allowed to carry anything, anywhere, at anytime, without any further restrictions... Laws, etc..

    The United States Federal Government should cut... no questions asked... complete and total exemptions for anyone with aPermit to carry on Federal Lands, Federal Property, Federal Parks, Federal Buildings, Federal Military Bases, etc.. The ONLYoff limits place in this Country should be, errr...Area 51..., at least thisis what I hear.

    Maybe the USAF fellow could shed some top secret light on that....

    Typing in all caps is of extremely minor importance, aardvark. The important thing is your participation the discussion and the quality of your arguments.

    Mostof the "NO ALL CAPS!" guys forget or don't know that...

    This is a discussion forum about guns and gun rights. An informal forum.This ain't no academic conference or United Nations assembly...

    Posts in all caps don't bother me. I read 'em anyway. I look for ideas, information and wisdom...

    Cost of NH is now $100. Any gun course by an NRA certified instructor is good for a Florida LTC, cost isn't much more than NH, its good for 7 years. Also proof of military training works for Florida, forget the form #. Florida is also good in about 28 states.

    So from what aadvark has written I understand that a loaded handgun should be left on the table in front of a 5 year old so he can decide for himself? That is the most absurd thing I have ever read. We don't need more restrictions keeping law abiding adults from carrying guns for self defense, but to say that irresponsible adults can leave loaded guns around in fronT of children is insane. Every time a kid does this it is more fuel to the anti guns to make laws to restrict ME! KEEP YOU GUNS LOCKED UP FROM CHILDREN DUMBASSES!

    I do not see/read where anyone suggested leaving a loaded gun on the table in front of a five year old and then leaving the area.

    Keeping guns away from the untrained is in most cases good advice.

    You respond without the advantage of actually reading the story this threead is based on.

    Xu, the ids that aledgedly committed suicide was an over achieving teenager, that apparently fell in with a couple fo buddies, that maybe he shouldn;t have. If I recall, one of the other boys found the handgun somewhere, and the boys had stashed in the woods, near Xu's home. One day, Xu has an arguement with his parents and storms out of the house. Later he is found dead at his school - apparent suicide, using the handgun that had been hiden in the woods.

    There were no 5 year olds involved in this story.

    Here is a directquote fromaadvark "IT DOES NOT MATTER IF 'XU' WAS 5 YEARS OLD, 15 YEARS OLD, OR... 75 YEARS OLD, HE MADE THAT DECISION FOR HIMSELF."

    Now you tell ME how a 5 year old can make a decision regarding a loaded gun found, brought to him by others, or stolen by someone and then given to him?

    Bottom line I am tired of gun owners not taking responsibility for anything and making excuses for these horrible tragedies. Yes, the 15 year old was disturbed. But bottom line whoever owned the gun should have had it locked up if not carried on the person. The RESPONSIBLE gun owner either carries it with a CCW or locks it up when not in use.



    I teach CCW and have for 28 years. I am sick of hearing excuses exonerating parents who leave guns around for irresponsible children to handle. The key word is CHILDREN.

    I think we would all agree that gun owners should be responsible about storage of our firearms where children are involved.

    Parents should also be responsible enough about raising their children and paying enough attention to them that they might notice when something isn't right with their kid.

    From what I got from the news story about the kids suicide, The kid was a high academic achiever, accomplished musician and athlete (tennis IIRC). He didn't have any friends to speak of, until the other 2 boys (juvenile delinquents) took up with him. The argument he had with his parents was over the new "buddies" he had.

    I would be willing to bet, that this kids parents were so wrapped up in pushing this kid to achieve (not an uncommon thing [but not exclusive to]with Asian families) that they weren't concerned that their sons social lifeand emotional balance was in need of help.

    Placing the blame solely on gun owners for this boys death is just another way of shirking responsibility shared by the other parties involved.

    A - The quote is somewhat rhetorical don't you think. He did make the choice.

    B - Already answered. There is NO 5 year old involved.

    C - So who here do you wish to blame? All would agree that someone should have been responsible enough to have the gun secured.

    D - How do you know that a parent left the gun available? Who is exonerating anyone? Agree that whether a child or an adult is harmed someone should have been more responsible, but really you are beating the choir.

    Understand your anger/frustration/helplessness but no one here contributed by word or deed to this pointless tragedy.

    The keys are education and responsibility no matter what the age.

    At 15 I knew about Firearms and Gun Safety, and I am still here.

    In fact, I had a healthy respect for Firearms ever since I can remember.

    Even when I was a Child I knew better than mess with anyones Gun, but I also knew how to use them because I was taught.

    There was never any need to 'lock-up' Guns in our Home, but then again, no one in our Home felt they needed to kill themselves.

    If it only save one child.............how many times have we heard that?

    Lock up the guns - save the child - false sense of security.

    Forget that there will be countless lives lost due to the time and accessibility factors involved as a result. Look at they situation in England now as a prime example.

    Teach the child - save the child - trust the honest citizen.

    The choice is yours. Do the right thing - educate them, young and old.
