Video on the Second Amendment by two Oregon boys who had been targeted by boy with gun

Two boys from Bend, Oregon, Oliver and Aleczander Reese, have entered a very good video on Second Amendment issues for this year's C-Span StudentCam competition.

Last year, Oliver had been assaulted by another boy, then that boy had gotten hold of his father's gun and ammunition and made a hit list which included the Reese brothers.  They are in 7th and 10th grades.

They take a look at the original historical meaning of the Second Amendment, mention other kid shootings, and discuss the need for Child Access Prevention laws.

I urge you to visit the link and watch the video.  Quite well-done for kids of this age, and we applaud them for taking on this serious issue.

Good luck, boys, on your competition.
