    See? If we would only let more people have more guns whenever and wherever they want, stuff like this would just never happen!

    the story says that a "man" out of a vechile and shot the kid. I see the comments about fighting fair but this story goes way beyond that. 1st what is this 15 year old kid during associated with a "man" that is not family member, school member or church member? 2nd what is this 15 year old kid doing to make a "man" want to go up to him and just shoot him in the neck? Kids nowadays seems to be raising themselves for some reason and when they do we get "this" generation.

    Yea, kids cant fight fair today. And then parents wont let them fight fair because they will call the cops if someone hit their kids. So you have this build up of pressure where one kid will just say anything because if anyone touches him, my parents will call the police. Then what happens ... someone just biols over and shoots you.

    Had a kid like this in my elementary school. He crossed the wrong kid one day. That kid beat him with a 12ft chain after school that day. Never seen either of them again after that.

    Look at us. How many people in the US could stand a 5 minute fist fight?? We are so obese nowadays it is not even funny. Just an observation. Don't shoot the messenger.

    People you don't bring weapons to what should be a fist fight. My Daddy told me that more then 60 yrs ago and it is really to bad there is nobody to teach these children how to fight fair
