    I agree. You should of heard my 10 year old (ELEMENTARY SCHOOL) son telling me what kids in his class and neighboring classes got for Christmas! He named at least 5 kids who "said" they got a gun. Please tell me why an elementary age child needs a gun!?!?!? This is so crazy! I can only hope that these guns were brought into responsible homes, with locked gun cases. Even still, why are we teaching kids to go to school to brag about and talk about guns!!!!!
