Letter: Hold parents accountable for underage shooters

Hold parents accountable for underage shooters

Please let me start by saying I have no issues or problems with people owning weapons.

I would, however, like to see the owners of said weapons be held accountable when a child uses the weapon in a crime and/or brings it to school. The news is hot with reports on the children committing acts of gun violence, but nowhere do you hear of the parent or guardian being held accountable.

If one of those adults punched their child, they would be arrested in a heartbeat. Let them take your deadly weapon to school, nothing. It’s time to hold the people that are influencing these children to a higher standard and put them behind bars for attributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Andrew Pond.

Glen Allen.
