*On NBC.COM it was said that a 2 year boy found a gun underneath his parent’s bed and began to play around with it*. Moments after this his parents then hear a gun shot and rush upstairs to where it heard. There they found out that the boy had accidentally shot himself in the head with the gun.

He and others like Gabrielle Giffords are even bringing the parents of the children who were lost in Sandy Hook to make tearful pleas to pass the amendment. Gabrielle Giffords is yet another example that proves my theory. She was shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner in 2011 in the middle of a constituent meeting she held. Loughner was expelled from college for disruptive behavior and was showing many signs of mental distress prior to the shooting. So much so that his parents disabled his car at night and took his shot gun away from him.

In that incident, previously reported in the media, the two teenagers were caught stealing equipment from a van, but authorities released the boys to their parents' custody, instead of keeping them in jail, and put them in a diversion program. Tom Klebold said that on the day after the arrest, he went for a walk with his son and found the boy to be angry and feeling his actions was somehow justified. "The morality of the whole thing escaped him," Tom Klebold said in the book.
On November 20th, 2012, at around 6:45 A.M., Lourdes Guzman-Dejesus, a thirteen year old student who was on the way to school on a private transportation bus, was fatally shot by another student on her bus.  His name is Jordyn Alexander Howe, 15. The boy had apparently obtained a loaded .40 caliber handgun from his very own home and took it with him on the ride to school where he accidentally let off a shot that hit Lourdes in the neck.

This scenario could have been avoided had his parents taken the necessary precautions to make sure the weapon was unaccessible to their child.
"I saw two shadows moving quickly away from the center of the park at about 2:45AM. From the shapes, I could tell immediately that they were young males." A witness (wanting to remain anonymous) told to police in the morning, only a few hours after the murder. Only a day after the crime was reported, the TPD announced that the victim's name was Robert "Bob" Sheldon, an 18-year-old senior that attended Oklahoma High School.

He was later convicted of killing a thirteen year old boy. Then there is Freddie whose life consisted of violence like shooting a girl with a BB gun hitting a rival gang member in the head with a hammer and selling crack. The Juvenile Court judge said that his mother could not control him and he was placed in the Audy House. The list goes on and on so that after a while the faces become blurred for the people working at the Audy House. While dealing with Chicago's Juvenile Court system, Ayers always has to compare the contrast to his own children lives .His son who had just turned sixteen,has opened birthday cards and presents,basketball, video games,gift certificates,clothes and a trip to get his drivers license.
There are many stories of people who have defended themselves with the use of guns. There was a particular family of six who had been stalked for fifteen years by an individual. That individual kicked in the back door of the family’s residence and attempted to kill them after he had killed four others that same night. The man who lived in the residence was able to hit the attacker in the chest with one round which detoured him from continuing the act.
