I have no problem with guns as long as everyone is responsible. In this story, the reporter says that the ice is to blame for the 12 year old shooting the 9 year old with a BB gun. They were walking back to the house when the 12 year old slipped on the ice and pulled the trigger. First of all, if it was icy, they shouldn’t have been shooting. If it was icy, it would have been responsible for the father to transport the gun. It would have been responsible to make sure that the safety was on. It would have been responsible for the gun to be empty before going inside.
No, the ice is not to blame.
