      Looks like an unfortunate incident and your point is?

        Read.

        Consider.

        Respond.

        Meanwhile:

        Read it.

        Nothing of major import.

        Nothing to discuss.

        Nothing to debate.

        I could link many more of your threads with no input from you.

          How does this change NCIS?

          The child is obviously not a criminal, the adult may have issues.

          "But it's a gift for the kid."

          Also since the threat of criminal children bringing weaponry to school outside of cities (an issue since the 70's which now tend to have metal detectors and police presence) does this change the narrative?
          The article that you linked doesn't say anything about giving a child a "gift" or being able to carry. From the article:

          Currently in Iowa, children can legally use long guns and shotguns under adult supervision but not handguns. This bill would change that, allowing the use of handguns as long as parents are 21 years old and maintain “visual and verbal contact at all times with the supervised person”. Children would still not be able to purchase firearms on their own.

            This has nothing to do with purchasing guns, merely shooting them. Up until now, a child couldn't shoot a handgun, even with their parent next to them. This new law just allows that. They've always been able to shoot rifles and shotguns; this just adds handguns to the mix.

              Interesting experiment that showed intuitively obvious results:

              The eight children were left together in a room with a fake gun that looks authentic, but could not be fired. One of the children picked up the gun within “15 seconds” and began passing it around to others. Others then pointed the gun at the rest of the children in the room and pretended to be shooting.

              Six of the eight children handled the gun, and all six of these children come from homes that have no guns. The two children who refused to touch the gun came from homes where their parents own guns.
