I think young kids get guns to seem "cool". They see an image portrayed, either on tv, or otherwise, and think that it'll make them "cool". You can get guns from just about anywhere now. its crazy to me. I, myself, have three guns. Not for being "cool", but because I understand the times we live in. I keep one in my car, I keep one in the closet but its taken apart, and I keep one under my pillow with the clip taken out and the clip is in my dresser draw. I have them because I have a fiance, and the place where we stay, there's drug dealers, and I don't feel safe with her being here alone without protection. I will be 22 at the end of this month, and I have no kids, and never have kids come over to my house or inside of my car. I think that kids having guns is extremely wrong and I blame it on the parents, but also on the older people. Because a kid can't buy a gun from a store, but someone older can, and sell it to kids. Its horrible.
Thanx to FenixPhoenix for making me a great avy and sig!! :)
