I still have no problem with children using firearms under adult supervision. But, those adults need to recognize their responsibility to make sure the child can use the weapon responsibly, and I do believe they need to be held accountable if they don't.
Agreed-- to an extent. I don't think children under 13 should be allowed to use firearms.
