    Default Gun nut nation—kid brings gun to daycare

    Police took possession of the gun. And since it’s Massachusetts, he will be charged and hopefully will never feel the warm embrace of a gun in his hand again.

    “Peabody Police received a call from Little Sprouts Early Education and Child Care on 71st Avenue to report that staff found a handgun inside a child’s backpack.

    Police said the Smith and Wesson gun was loaded and the safety catch was on. The gun was owned by the child’s father, who was licensed in a neighboring town. Police took possession of the gun.”

    It is important to recruit the well regulated militia while they are young.

    the only thing that stops a bad toddler with a gun. . .
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Early education and childcare, so we're not even talking about a school-aged child, we're looking at a kid that 5 or younger.

    So how does a child that's 5 or less fall victim to a toxic culture? Remember gun violence is a cultural thing. . .
    Or was it violent movies and video games?
    Maybe it was rap and other suggestive music lyrics?


    Or maybe, just MAYBE. . . it was all of the guns that people are so casual about and leave laying all over the place for anyone to pick up!

    If you are a 2nd amendment advocate, pull your head out of your ass, stop making dumbass excuses, and take some ******* ownership of this situation!

    Maybe daddy didn't have even a lockbox and his kid found it on his bed. Show and Tell.

    My Dad thought I was ready for a gun when I was 11 years old.
    With his guidance I was.
    Times were different then.


    Keep calm, persistence beats resistance.

    Me too. I still have the Model 514 single shot. Passed down to me from 3 brothers and a sister. It’s a great gun.
    Stay calm, be brave....wait for the signs. Possibly precariously prevaricating.
