    Somebody explain to me how a 14 year old boy has a handgun? And don’t go blaming the NRA for this. Elected officials better wise up and go after whoever put that gun in that boy’ hands. This is a tragedy and it is going to be repeated over and over until we stop abandoning our children to the false glamor of the streets.
