Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
I know of a teen in Ohio who was NOT pressured by his parents to match his brother or anything like that, but to succeed in his own way. The family was close, and one day after school the teen went into the garage with a muzzle loading shotgun he'd made (from a kit) with his dad and...well, no one could figure out why and even today no one knows why. He did mention to his friends, "I won't be at school tomorrow" but that was all the indication they had and they thought that the family was taking a day trip or something.

Some things aren't meant to be known, I guess. The family moved out of town within a year and I've lost track of them. A tragedy.
