Guns for Children

I just happened to be reading an article about the tragic shooting death of a pregnant woman by her fiance's 11-year-old son. The story in itself is horrible enough, but I was stunned when I read further into the article and found this:"She didn't actually eye witness the shooting. She saw him with what she believed to be a shotgun and heard a loud bang," Bongivengo said, adding that the weapon, a youth model 20-gauge shotgun, was found in what police believed was the boy's bedroom.

The shotgun, which apparently belonged to Brown, is designed for children and such weapons do not have to be registered, Bongivengo said.

You can call me clueless but I see no reason why kids should even have guns. In my dealings with them I don't believe that most kids are mature enough for gun ownership. What is your opinion on this? I realize that in an earlier time in our history circumstances could arise wherein a child might be called upon to use a gun, but those days are long gone.
