@NukaCola - "100% a clear case of a sick disturbed bastard who has no ability to control himself."

It's a 13-year old kid. He might have been born "evil" as you suggest, although that's the easiest and simplest conclusion to jump to.

I find it more likely that he either was shaped this way while growing up (the article mentions nothing about his background, personal life or family relations), or that he suffered from an illness (ADD etc) and was not given any treatment.

1. Do not give a kid a gun.

2. Do not let kids play a mature rated games.

I bet if I gave my 7yo boy a gun he would friggen shoot me the next time I tell him to clean his room. Kids do not have the kind of understanding a gun requires.

I'm not even sure if I feel that sorry for the woman. She gave the boy a gun and let him play mature games for years presumably since the boy wouldn't be THAT hooked to it otherwise. How effing completely STUPID can you be?

A 13yo is not old enough to be the one to blame for this. This idiot of a woman got what she asked for and she ruined her entire family's lives in the process. Slow clap. What an effing waste.

IT'S VIOLENT GAMES PEOPLE!
Humans have NEVER been violent before the creation of video games! NEVER! /s

It's asinine incidents like this that give some opportunistic Ahole politician a way to score political points and take the focus off the real problem. A 13 year old with access to a gun. Let alone an M (17+) Rated game. Gee I wonder how he got that?

But to be honest I don't believe the rhetoric that games cause people to act out in any way. We are aggressive by nature and if not games it would be sports, politics, religion, money, health, relationships, etc and so on. Why is it that certain outlets (mostly politicians and some whack head doctors) try to link video games to violence? Oh that's right. I already answered it. Because they want to do the whole, "NOT ME, LOOK OVER THERE. That's the real problem." *SIGH*

Sorry but one more point. I get a little sick of hearing people saying what a good boy, no known problems, never acted out, nothing medically wrong. Yet he tried to RAPE his own mother before killing her? Seriously. I am a father of 3, all grown, and even I don't kid myself thinking I know everything about my kids.

Humans are animals by nature. We may "think" know what we are truly capable of most of the time, but sometimes we do things we really wish we could take back or do things we didn't really think we were capable of until it happens.

@abzdine I seriously dislike your point of view on this. One psychotic child is given a gun and he shoots his mother. Firstly he wouldn't have done it if he wasn't given a gun. It was a heat of the moment thing where his mental problems all fired up.

Secondly the world is improving. 60 years ago people in Germany were using human soap bars. 100 years ago the Ottoman empire was still sentencing people to death by making them sit on a long sharp metal pole till it reached their neck (through their a**) and killed them.
In ancient Rome it was entertaining to round up slaves and Christians and feed them to lions every weekend.

When did we ever have more morality in the first world then we do now in the 21st century?

1 kid with a mental illness and a gun in his hand just says we have insane parents who actually think their kids would be safer with a weapon that can take lives with just one click.

Miss me with all the gun control crap. This boy tried to rape his own mother. Let me write that again, RAPE HIS OWN MOTHER. He had deep issues that go beyond simply having access to a gun, or simply having a video game.
Gaming101  +   594d ago
This just in, the NRA has an announcement:
That mother should have shot back with her own gun! The answer is never less guns, or background checks, or sanity checks, the answer is crossfire with the kids!

Unbelievable. Gun manufacturers have politicians in the back pocket. Any legislation that would limit the sale of guns, even to crazy people or criminals is voted down by American politicians who are completely bought and paid off by the NRA. Gun manufacturers make money by selling more guns, so they don't want crazy people and criminals to not have guns because that hurts sales. It also means sane people will be scared to walk the streets unarmed, so they'll be fear-mongered into buying more guns, thus more profits for gun manufacturers.

Given that every country in the world with 40 gun deaths a year compared 40,000 in the US thinks the US is absolutely bat shit crazy with its archaic insane thinking, it is clear nothing will ever get done so long as the NRA keeps buying politicians.
snipes101  +   594d ago
I find it ironic that people say "don't blame CoD, blame the gun," which is just people targeting another scapegoat. Double standards much?

The kid tried to rape her corpse. What part of that sentence makes you think that he wouldn't have been just as likely to grab a knife and stab her twenty times?

Use some sense people, and follow your own rules, too.

The fault here lies totally with the parents for giving this little psycho a rifle at the age of 11 for fack's sake.

"Noah Crooks’ attorney is not denying that his client killed his mother, but claims the boy suffered what he referred to as a “tumor of rage”.

a child psychiatrist will testify Crooks suffers from ‘intermittent explosive disorder’ – a mental illness marked by repeated episodes of impulsive, aggressive or violent behavior."
awi5951  +   594d ago
Giving a child a gun causes less problems than keeping gun safety from them. I grew up with guns like a lot of kids from the south like me. The only kids that shoot themselves accidently with guns are the ones that know nothing about them. Thats why for the last say 200 years my family has always taught our kids about guns and like his father and his father before him i got my first gun at like age 10. It's been a long tradition in states that actually hunt forever. I knew from a early age that guns kill and was taught to respect them.

When you grow up on a farm and you have to kill, cows, chickens, and Hogs all the time you know what death is and you learn to fear it. City boys maybe think they are immortal when they are young but us country folks know better.

This kid was screwed up in the head from the start and blaming guns isnt going to fix the mental health problem in the U.S at all. I see sick people walking the street everyday, everyone in town knows they are totally nuts but we cant lock them up untill they do something stupid.Its against their civil rights to lock them up before hand against their will.

@DragonKnight

You're probably from a stupid state like New york that have no gun rights anyway so you have no problem taking away rights you dont have in the first place. I can't stand people who dont own guns, never shot guns, don't know anything about guns, trying to tell me what i can and can't do with my guns. Kids have been going on their first deer hunts at 8 years old forever so why is it a problem now. Because pansy people like you keep making excuses for their bad behavior. This kid was just sick that's it there will always be one a-hole out of 1000 that will do something stupid We cant stop it that's human nature. But im not going to punish the 99 percent of people for the 1 percent of idiots out there. If we did that non of us could ever leave the house.

Why in the actual f*** would anyone give a kid a REAL GUN?! See, that's the REAL problem these days. Terrible parents. You give a kid a gun, you let him play a game whose primary objective is killing an enemy with guns, you obviously place no restrictions and make the child spoiled, and then you wonder why s*** like this happens. I swear, it should be mandatory that every new parent be required to take parenting classes whenever they have a baby and take refresher courses at the necessary stages of development. Either that, or someone invent common sense classes and require that of parents.

I mean even if this kid had a mental disorder, which isn't even mentioned as being a possibility, it's still up to the parents to create structure and discipline. Any of his deficiencies are due to them not doing right by their child.

Your saying the only kids that shoot themselves dont know nothing about guns?First off KID SHOULDNT HAVE GUNS PERIOD!
I have a friend in the army that probably has 100x more knowledge of guns then you ever will and he still managed to shoot his self in the foot.
I cant even comprehend what you typed.Like its impossible for me to put myself in your shoes and say what you said and actually think it makes sense.
I agree blaming guns is very stupid.But saying giving kids guns and teaching them about them would be safer because YOU and people YOU KNOW just happen to not have had an accident yet is probably stupider.

Is it really so wrong for it to be locked up at all times when not supervised? Or does that not jive with your infallible down south wisdom? Like the kid lived in a rural area, not a farm.

problem is people don't beat their kids no mo.

sorry but its true. those little authority challenging people to be need their ass beat every once in a while so they don't get god syndrome.

then they wont shoot you cause they know you'll beat their ass. (works in kid logic)

teach them right from wrong we wouldn't have this problem. but politically correct America with its lazy ass kids, want everything for free NOW!, or else they will kill you haha fuckin little bitch needs to be taught... family didn't teach it so look what happened.

in all seriousness this politically correct bullshit America is pulling is getting 20yrs old I for one am tired of it. mind your own fukn business and beat your kids when they display absolutely unacceptable behavior and life will cruise.

I had my ass beat and because of that I didn't think I could kill people without repercussions. hence kids need to be brought up, they don't come pre-programmed to be awesome people. you give them that and later in life they learn to thank you for it.

this kid will grow up in prison all because his mom/dad didn't show him who's boss.. cause that would be abuse... HA!

facepalm!

edit: likely one of you will pull the mentally unstable card.

what do you think would've happened if his mom/dad disciplined him in other ways besides "taking away his COD". he would fear them over god. and love them just as much.

guns aren't the problem. and if you want an honest debate start here.

@grimmweisse

No your a special type of stupid it's called teaching your kids survival skills. You brats today take for granted that you can just go to the store and get something to eat. Im my day if you didnt know how to shoot you and your family starved.

And you see all these natural disasters where the power is out for weeks at a time and you see these idiots panic. You people have gotten too soft. I got my first .22 rifle at age 10 from my grandad and i used it to hunt rabbits for food for the family. I used it to kill water moccasins that tried to bite me while i was fishing.

I carried my little rifle where ever i went by myself loaded because it was for my protection and helping to feed the family. Thats just how it was done in my day. And it wasnt all these shooting like in these days. This generation is just stupid thats all. Kids had more guns then than they do know and it wasnt anywhere near this amount of violence.

When you lived out in the middle of nowhere where i grew up you better have a gun or you didnt survive. Bears,boars,snakes and crazy folks you run into in the woods. You kids better hope none of your countries collapse because you all will be the first to die of starvation or i hope you enjoy eating grass because thats all you be able to catch. Because someone thought it was a good ideas to baby our kids and not teach the survival skill they need just in case you find yourself lost in the woods or a natural disaster actually hit your area.

You brats today! Can you make a fire without a lighter or matches? Can you make snares for small game? Do you even know how to find water? Do you know what plants in the woods you can and can't eat? Can you hit the broad side of a barn when hunting? Do you know how to catch a rabbit with just a bare stick? We use to teach our kids these thing now we just sit them in front of the Tv so they will shut up. And thats whats wrong with the country today. You kids better learn how to live without so much tech because one day it may not be there alot can change over your lifetime and nothing is promised.

snipes101  +   593d ago
Obviously a very unpopular point of view, but I was raised the same way @awi was. I've been shooting guns since age 8 and I know what they can do. By being taught about how dangerous they are, using them on a regular basis, and using proper safety techniques, I realized what a gun was, and what shouldn't be done with it.

I get the strong feeling that the people crucifying @awi did not grow up in a similar fashion. It's not about "being stupid," as you people are suggesting. It's about having an understanding of a powerful piece of machinery from a young age so as to avoid incidents like this.

Long story short - the more I was taught about guns, the less I ever wanted to shoot anybody with one.

@anubusgold
You and awi might not realize this but living in the country isnt the only dangerous place in the world.You had to worry about animals,people in cities had to worry about muggers rapist and kidnappers.Hop off your high horse thinking your some how better because you learned "survial skills" at a young age.We ALL learned survival skills at a young age WE DONT NEED a gun to survive.You NEED TO BE SMART to survive.Why the hell would someone who live in a city need to know all of that stuff?If we entered another dark age we would have enough food to survive on in our life time.By the time we die off and if we are still in dark age our kids will learn all that crap you listed.Its unnecessary to know that stuff now, yea it would be cool to know but chances of me needing to know that crap is slim to none.

To everyone else.As someone who grew up in the "wilderness" and had to kill rattle snakes and possums on my front porch, everyone from the country isnt a dumb "redneck" like awi and anubusgold.They think that because they didnt have any incidents with guns that, that means teaching kids about guns is the winning solution.That little thing about everybody being different doesnt apply to them for some reason.

The amendment on gun ownership was pointed at the British since the US didn't have a standing army at the time. It's horribly outdated today and just stupid. If the US were to ban firearms the homicide rate would drop dramatically. At least successful ones. Hadn't there been firearms in that house OR they had been properly locked away that woman would still be alive for sure.
Statix  +   594d ago
@nypifisel:

Banning law-abiding citizens from legally owning guns would barely put a dent on gun crime, because the vast majority of gun homicides are committed by illegal gun owners.

Just look at Chicago, where you have the strictest gun control laws in the country, but paradoxically the highest rates of gun homicides. This should tell you that banning legal guns would only take away the rights and abilities of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves from illegal gun owners. Rather than doing this, we should be focusing on cracking down on ILLEGAL gun ownership instead.

Exactly. But you should know that leaders are important in that issue because if they are idiots then chaos will spread. For example we have a little different issue then you but it have the same meaning. In my country the only ones that kill are the police(mercenaries). Rulers here give their children and men weapons so we hear that they shoot some buildings or anyone they hate wether in political or religion or disagreement every while.

What i'm saying controlling who get the guns is important. I don't think giving the citizens guns is a good idea. It's not really for protecting. It's just an excuse. People shouldn't kill each other. My country is a prove of how people respect each other. We don't see this kind of things here. We raised that way and religion itself is the law. We really don't care about the law the dictators here put. So i advice you to have some kind of law that all people agree on and if anyone go against it means it effect people in a bad way which means apply that kind of law on him. It's as simple as that. But as we know the law isn't for people right now.

Guys, don't get me wrong. I would love to get a gun. It's just not a good idea to let all people have them so i can sacrifice my self need so others don't use it in a bad way.

I'm not saying guns only the way to kill. It's just one of the easy tools to commit it. So removing them will lower the rate of these crimes and to prove my talk look at my country Bahrain. It's rare when these things happen.

You bought an 11 year old a gun, then gave him free reign to play COD, WHICH MIMICS GUNS.....fail. I'm sorry, I definitely feel for the family, but this was asked for.... there is an age limit on stuff like this for a reason. Why wasnt the gun locked up? I was a different person when i was a teenager. Filled with rage and a complete misunderstanding for the world. The more i live my life, the more i umderstand and care about whats important. How can you risk your life and the lives of others around you by placing your faith in an 11 year olds PRIMITAVE, UNDEVELOPED mind? I wouldnt give any 11 year old a COD game yet alone a freakin .22 Im sure you guys saw the latest campaign where Menendez slits everyones throats.

Whether or not you agree with the age he was playing the game at, the fact is that kids all over are playing call of duty and other violent games (I saw a 5 year old with a MW3 cap on). To assert that CoD did this would be silly, although what responsible parent buys an 11 y.o. a gun and ammo? A very disturbing story.
lizard81288  +   594d ago
It comes down to parenting.

#1 Don't give a 13 year old a freaking gun.

#2 CoD is rated 'M' for Mature, via 18 years or older to buy it, which would imply to be 18 to play it (granted, it is based on your maturity level, but just to steam line this).

I feel bad, but huge mistakes were made here.

Ive been shooting guns pretty much my whole life from when i was about 4 and had full access by the time i was 8 and so did just about everyone i know by the time i was this kids age i was skipping school with my buds to go hunting with no adults in sight.. Its good to introduce kids to guns at a young age u should prolly keep a lock on the gun if ur kid has one but thats on the parents. if the gun wasnt there be would of just usex a knife or something then everyone will be OMG who has knives around a 11 year old

@kparks there are laws on these things for a reason. Same sort of reason why its illegal for an 11 yr old to drive a car. The mind has not matured entirely to warrant that sort of responsibility. Just because your parents allowed you to have a gun at an early age doesnt mean its right. There are MILLIONS of things to do at 11 guns should NOT be one of them. Go play a freakin nintendo and leave the real games to the adults. Not like we want any kids on COD anyway. I just dont get the parents giving the freedom to the kid....have a lil patience, everyone grows up one day, give him the gun then and let him play games a 13 yr old deserves to play at that age.

I wanted pokemon games at 13. Not a freakin gun.

What on earth was the mother thinking getting him a gun? Horribly sad story, but huge mistakes like that will definitely come with consequences. Now the mother is dead and the boy has lost his chance at life. Sad. I can't seem to get over the rape attempt. So it's not just about the gun he got for his birthday or COD. This kid obviously had serious mental issues. Something tragic was probably sure to happen involving this kid.

Maybe he lives in the south where there are lots of open spaces to shoot your gun and hunt just like when i was a kid. It's tradition down here and all you city folks just need to shut your damn mouths. Just because you can't shoot your guns when you want too doesnt mean your going to ruin it for the rest of us. Also city folks i have a carry permit i can walk around all day im my state with my gun on My hip and not a damn things the cops or you can do about it. It's called states rights look it up.

Because some children have responsibility and discipline and aren't mentally ill and are taught safety and respect.

Lots of children have guns so if guns were the problem you would hear a lot more stories like this. Just because you don't think its appropriate for a child to have a gun doesn't mean that there aren't thousands of kids with rifles. Not too many of them shoot their mom... even less try to rape their mom afterwords.

THIS kid should not have had access to a gun (obviously) but he did and this happened. Cause and effect it is over now lets move on.

It's America, having a gun at the age of 8 is seen as normal in allot of states. America is cool but fuck them and their right to bear arms, the fact they didn't pass the bill to have background checks for people buying their first gun, seriously why wouldn't you want background checks? I think if someone has murdered someone in the past i don't think they should legally be allowed to obtain a gun.

Whats wrong with giving a child a gun i was prolly 4 the first time i shot a gun, 6 when i shot my first deer with my dad, 8 when i got my first 20gauge and my dad got a pistol when i was 12 and i used to shoot that all the time by myself i had a key to our gun room and everything now im 23 and own several guns.. Its not the kid having a gun thats the problem its the kids obviously fucking crazy! Its actually safer to introduce kids to guns at a younger age but most people will put and should put a trigger lock on weapons and if the kid wants it they can ask and so on.. Im tired of hearing all this gun BS or its the parents fault the kid was crazy if he didnt have a gun he would of just used a knife or something else!

I feel as a game designer and a human being really I should comment on this. I make video games right? I make worlds right? So I am liable for what the person does fully. Not necessarily when making a game I realize that I am taking the responsibility of telling someone exactly what they must do to "complete the game" or get full enjoyment out of their purchase. Why a 13 year old was given Call of Duty and a Gun is beyond me. Do videogames build murderers? Am I constructing the killers of the future? No I am not some may believe themselves to be a factor,but media is not to blame for the reality of the violence in our society. Wars, Murders, Genocide all exist and have for countless years and stem from a lack of empathy for others. Rest in Peace to the mom. May our society at some point evolve to one that does truly cares for each other enough to not utilize violence.

It really depends on the kid, it's not necessarily a fact that all kids can't handle it.

I have a friend who is heavily into competitive shooting and hunting and has a couple hundred guns. His kids have been shooting since they were old enough to hold a gun.

But the guns are not easy to get at. Every gun is in a gun safe, which is in a locked room. In addition every gun has either a trigger lock or is partially disassembled with the parts in separate locked safes. Ammo is stored in yet a different safe in a different room. There is just no way for someone to get a gun and load it without a lot of effort. By then most people will have had time to cool down.

And needless to say the kids don't have access to anything. They are allowed to shoot only while supervised and they have been trained in gun safety.
TKCMuzzer  +   594d ago
@kneon
Kids are kids, they are not legally adults,they take no responsibility for their actions until a certain age and there fore should not be aloud access to guns, supervised or not. In a world where you have to be a certain age to smoke, drive and even drink the fact that this kids dad could buy him a gun is a big failing in any lawful country.
Your friends kids may not be able to get to the guns but what they will be is well trained in fire arms, there fore possibly making them even more dangerous if they wish.
The idea of putting age limits on things is to try and teach children that responsibility comes with age. Children should be playing sports and building tree houses and having fun, not learning how to become a more effective killer. Kids are growing up learning about these weapons to early and with access, then when one of them walks into a cinema and kills loads of innocent people, America turns around and says "why did this happen?".......

wolokowoh  +   594d ago
Something is obviously deeply wrong with this kid. Maybe it's bad parenting, other negative influence, or a genetically inherited condition. I'd like to say it's not a problem to give someone a gun for a birthday if you restrict access to it for certain things and make sure they know when and why to use it. I took my seven year niece hunting without incident. I sure as hell took every precaution reasonably possible but nothing ever went wrong. The main thing I was worried about was self-injury of course. The kid loves hunting yet doesn't have a psychotic fascination with killing things. How is this possible? It's a combination of good parenting on my brother and his wife's side and myself setting the best, most responsible example I could.

Most "M rated games" are also not that bad, especially COD. I was playing God of War on launch day when I just turned thirteen. Way more violent and sexual content in that game, yet I didn't try to rape or kill someone. The game is also quite "addicting" in the sense it was fun enough that I played it dozens of times. However I was never obsessed and obsession seems to be key here. Unlike suicide indicators, the signs of obsession are fairly obvious ones if you're paying as much attention as you should. Violent media has been present in my life since early childhood but nothing affected me so why should I believe it alone can cause a heinous act. I believe guns and violent media simply can't screw you up when put in proper context. Maybe it makes you temporarily slightly more aggressive but many things do including sports or any competition. If you just had the most happy experience in your life, you'll temporarily perceive all things more positively.
Snookies12  +   594d ago
Um, no. Giving guns as a gift is not a thing in America. At least not where I live.

I like guns, I like shooting them at the range. I will most likely own a gun at some point. However, no one under the age of at LEAST 18 should ever be able to touch a gun period. It's not a toy, it's not 'cool', it's dangerous. You have to know what you're doing when handling one.

Really, as much as I don't like Call of Duty, that's not at fault here. It's the parents who decided it would be a good idea to give this kid a gun.

I understand why he felt he needed to kill the mother due to his unnatural attachment to the game, but the fact that he tried to rape her is interesting to say the least. It seems like he didn't even know why he wanted to rape her but did it instinctively.

Things like this are proof that Freud's Oedipus complex theory is no joke. Deep down in his unconscious that kid had desires for his mom. It was the mental anguish that he couldn't play COD anymore that brought those desires to the forefront of his mind, thus resulting in him a acting out the deed.

Freud's ideas just struck a chord with people because of how coherent a NARRATIVE they made, not because of how accurately they described reality. Think of it like writing a story and getting carried away writing mythologies and character backgrounds and other voluminous details. It's like writing an alternate VERSION of the world you actually live in. The fact of the matter is that the mind is far more complex than a psychoanalyst would allow. You can't reduce everything to sexual desire and violence. Not only is it completely untrue, but it breeds dangerous ideological usages.
LOGICWINS  +   594d ago
"Freud's ideas just struck a chord with people because of how coherent a NARRATIVE they made, not because of how accurately they described reality."

Prove it.

"Not only is it completely untrue, but it breeds dangerous ideological usages."

Again. Where is your proof? I can agree that I might have taken this too far. This ONE incident along with many scattered incidents in history can't prove that Freud's theory is true for everyone. What we DO know for certain is that incest between children/parents DOES occur, but it doesn't happen in a large enough frequency to prove anything.

Still, assuming this is true for everyone, this "desire" is buried VERY deep in the unconscious. Even if it was there, 99% of people(including myself) would be too afraid to attempt to explore it.
wolokowoh  +   594d ago
@LOGICWINS Freud's ideas are not falsifiable. They're also so general and vague they could applied anyone. Jung's ideas while not perfect are far more applicable to a general population. The Oedipus complex is one of many in his theory and not everyone develops it. There's also the complex known as "the shadow". Freud also simplified instincts too much into life instincts and aggressive instincts. While Freud had some great ideas, they are more in the vain of hermeneutics than science.

"Not to mention, comments like that only perpetuate the stigma and negative (often dangerous) stereotypes that surround psychiatry, medication and people with mental illness."

You say stereotype when these companies are making millions labeling almost everything a disorder? Just look at their latest edition DSM book, it has more pages than the bible, and it's nothing but crap they made up in meetings. did you know that they label homosexuality as a disorder? They recently took it down for politic reasons. There is a reason why man of these bizarre violence happen and the drugs are the main source.

The kid said he THINKS he has some form of ADD. Nowhere in the article does it state he has been diagnosed with it, let alone indicate that he's on medication.

Also, your own anecdote is not proof that ritalin (or any other psychiatric drug) doesn't work, let alone potentially cause murders. Different people respond differently to different drugs. To imply that your story is somehow applicable to all people on ritalin IS perpetuating a stigma, because you are ignoring the good that those drugs do for many people around the world. Not to mention, putting the blame on pharmaceutical companies for the murder, instead of blaming THE MURDERER WHO KILLED HIS OWN MOTHER OVER A VIDEO GAME. The same thing happens with video games. Instead of blaming murderers for murdering, politicians and the media blame video game companies for "corrupting the children" and turning them into killers.

Maybe the reason there is a supposed link between psychiatric drugs and murder is because the people on those drugs are mentally ill. People with healthy minds don't need to be medicated. Though I suppose it's easier for people to blame big pharmaceutical companies than it is to admit that a child might be a crazy, murdering asshole.

Obviously the kids seriously screwed up. There's no debate over that. Howver, gun control for a .22 rifle is a little overkill. A .22 is weak hunting rifle that barely even kicks. Obviously it's dangerous weapon but why was a kid just be able to get to it and use it whenever he pleases? He shouldn't be able to do that because precautions should have been taken to prevent this or an accident from occurring. It should be unloaded, locked up, and kept away from the kid until it was needed for hunting or self defense. The concept of responsibility and morality should be there to prevent these things from happening. It's not like it's a M-4 carbine or Barrett 50BMG.

I don't know whats weirder, that he tried to raped and killed his mom. Or that she but her 13 year old a gun. Some serious debating going on in my mind right now.

He must be some "milf hunter", like a lot of big kidz on the internet, that happens when you feed your brain with brainless crap.

Seeing as someone died, I'd say it is pretty horrific.
