Gun control only serves to take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. Criminals do not care about gun laws. This liberal state will never figure that out and thus will leave it's populous vulnerable.

I met this boy 5 years ago I was his Sunday School Teacher for a short while. Friendly boy who had lost his mother. We called him Bear but a 2 year old put it best when she said "hes not a bear" Ill always remember how that boy wanted a bible of his own to take home. God be with him!

I for one, am not going to pass judgement until we have all the facts. My son is a freshman at CMW (my alma mater as well) however, he didn't know the boy. It just send to me like the system has failed this young boy, as well as the family entirely. You just never know what goes on behind closed doors. In retrospect, it's easy for a lot of us to say "we would have helped" but it's a little too late for that, unfortunately. I am curious as to why he shot his father & moved his body (not to mention how could a young boy move a grownan alone) He told the police where the body was anyway, so why didn't he just leave him. Was he trying to cover it up? Or did leaving his fathers body at a relatives house speak bigger volumes? I am sure we will all find out eventually. This whole story is very unfortunate all the way around.
