Indeed. Note that the Detroit Police Chief references another shooting in the area- that of a 6 year old boy. And the gun, in the case above came right from the home- owned by the mother's fiance´. Children know where the guns are kept. Where do children get the idea that a gun should solve arguments with their parents?Detroit Police Chief Ralph L. Godbee Jr. and Mayor Dave Bing held a press conference Monday afternoon to address Robinson's shooting and other recent gun violence involving minors, including the early Monday morning shooting of a 6-year-old boy in an attempted carjacking. The boy is still in critical condition. Police say the two suspects in custody for the child's shooting are also teenage boys.Bing asked Detroiters not to stand idly by while children become victims of crime. But at the same time, he demanded parents take more responsibility for their children's actions."You can't expect the police to be in every home, on every corner, responding to things that we as parents and adults ought to be responsible for," he said. "Let's let these young people know that we care about them but at the same time, we aren't not going to allow them to create havoc. You have to start discipline ... when they come out of the womb."
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
