    Those of you who are so taken aback by the idea of conceal carrying are really interesting to me. It's just so common here. Literally, my job sends out an email promoting cwp classes like every other month. It's just surprising to me.

    I grew up in Miami in the Cocaine Cowboys heyday of the 1980s, and let me tell you I never owned a gun. However, I still periodically poop out leftover cocaine packets from my days as an indentured drug mule.

    eh i know a few people that carry every day. 1 works outdoors and he carries a lever action rifle, but not a pistol, and the other person is a former SOAR pilot who's a gun collector. the former does it for work in case he rolls up on a snake/coyote/whatever, and the latter just does it because he can. i understand the former, i don't understand the latter but to each their own. he's more than qualified, imo, to do it considering his background

    Seeing the crime rates for Gaston and Iowa, I feel like people like AIOLICOCK are scared pussies. I tend to think these scared of the other pussies would piss themselves as you said, but I believe they would actually shoot their security blanket. Likely, miss cuz can't let them too close and they are scared pussies. Fear equals panic imo

    How Unusual To Charge Parents In School Shooting?
    Following the fatal shooting of four students at a Michigan high school, the parents of the alleged shooter have been charged with multiple crimes.

    Guns used in U.S. school shootings have often come from the homes of young perpetrators, but parents are rarely charged for the violence that occurs, experts say.

    That’s what makes the case against Ethan Crumbley’s parents uncommon, following the fatal shooting of four students at Oxford High School in southeastern Michigan. Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald said Jennifer and James Crumbley ignored opportunities to intervene, just a few hours before the bloodshed.


    They’re charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter, while Ethan, 15, is charged as an adult with murder, terrorism and other crimes.

    The Crumbley parents were taken into custody early Saturday and later appeared in court where a judge set a $500,000 bond for each after they entered not guilty pleas. Their attorneys said they would fight the charges.

    Here’s a look at the issues facing the parents:

    What Do We Know About The Gun?

    The semi-automatic handgun used in the shooting Tuesday was purchased by James Crumbley on Nov. 26 while his son stood by at the shop, according to investigators.

    Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Jennifer Crumbley referred to it on social media as a “Christmas present” for her son, and Ethan posted a picture of it on social media, calling it his “new beauty,” McDonald said.

    With some very limited exceptions, minors in Michigan aren’t allowed to possess guns. But there is no Michigan law that requires owners to keep guns locked away from kids.

    “So many states do. There’s 23 states plus Washington, D.C., that have some form of a secure storage law,” Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said.


    During the court appearance Saturday, attorney Shannon Smith said the gun used was locked, but she did not say how their son got it.

    Will Involuntary Manslaughter Be Tough To Prove?
    “It’s an unusual charge to bring,” said Eve Brensike Primus, who teaches criminal procedure at University of Michigan law school.

    Police said Ethan Crumbley emerged from a bathroom and started shooting other students in the hallway at Oxford High. A few hours earlier, he and his parents had met with school officials. A teacher had found a drawing on his desk with a gun pointing at the words, “The thoughts won’t stop. Help me,” according to the prosecutor.

    Ethan, who had no disciplinary record, was told to get counseling but was allowed to stay in school. His backpack was not checked for a weapon, McDonald said.

    Primus said authorities must show gross negligence by the parents and causation, or the act of causing something.

    “The prosecutor is going to need facts to support the argument that these parents really knew there was a risk that their son would take a gun and shoot people dead,” she said. “Not just that their son was troubled in some way. This is a homicide charge that carries years in prison. This is not a small charge.”

    In 2000, a Flint-area man pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter after a 6-year-old boy who was living with him found a gun in a shoebox and killed a classmate.

    Why Aren’t Parents Charged More Often?
    A 2019 assessment by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security found that guns came from the home of a parent or close relative in 76% of school attacks where firearms were used. In about half, the firearms were easily accessible.


    But laws aimed at restricting gun access are not always enforced and vary in strength, experts say.

    “Our laws haven’t really adapted to the reality of school shootings, and the closest we have are these child access prevention laws,” said Kris Brown, president of the Brady gun control advocacy group

    In 2020, the mother of an Indiana teen was placed on probation for failing to remove guns from her home after her mentally ill son threatened to kill students. He fired shots inside his school in 2018. No one was injured but the boy killed himself.

    In Washington state, the father of a boy who killed four students at a high school in 2014 was convicted of illegally possessing firearms. He was not charged for the shooting, although one of his guns was used.

    as a dumb ass kid used to carry every where but like I said I lived in a neighborhood that was surrounded by neighborhoods that did not like it.

    As an adult I no longer feel the need to do so because I know it is stupid and I live in a fairly safe area.

    Also ToBeFaiR I grew up in south (central) la few blocks from Watts in a blood neighborhood surrounded by crip neighborhoods. No I’m not claiming to have been a blood just saying once you passed a certain point everyone knew where you lived and being a member didn’t matter to anyone. My high school home school was Locke anyone familiar with the area understands the school and what it was like. I gave AIOLICOCK the benefit of the doubt last time this discussion was had, now I just think he just wants to play pew pew pew.

    I don't doubt it's easy to be dismissive of crime in rural areas when you've never been exposed to it. :loldog:

    You've literally never been in a situation that required you to pull a gun so it seems you've never been exposed that rampant rural crime either.
