I'm not going to let my 13 year old girl have access to any firearms myself (personal choice) due to a 13 year old girl I knew having committed suicide when I was a teen. Sometimes emotions at that age are too much.
Regardless I'm happy this turned out well. I'm sure that family (and that young man) is going to have some mental struggles to overcome, but it's infinitely better than the alternative. I'm also glad we didn't see a bunch of idiotic comments from people saying that the kid should be charged along with the parent due to not "shooting to wound" (shooting in the leg or something).
