therealdeal, if the 14yo girl had hit the other girl with a baseball bat, or stabbed her with a kitchen knife, would you bring up poor knowledge of history?
I must go back to my first replies of your posts before agreeing to the last one between these last two between us:
A 14yr old would not hit a friend with a baseball bat by accident unless it was a 'true' accident like during a softball game as example.
The fact remains -society's fault or not - that teenagers especially females and moreso in certain locations are not knowledgeable enough about firearms. It might have to do with the fact that people are scared of guns or anti guns, but it might also have to do with the fact that a 14yr old can buy a bat, hold it in the store, play sports with it, etc. She cannot do this with a firearm.
