Whether you are for or against gun control, the death of a young child is tragic to everyone. The family of the boy would prefer to just bury their son and move on, but gun control fanatics are already using the incident to push for more and stricter gun control, which will only keep the boy’s name in the news and keep the pain of his loss lasting longer for the family, but gun control fanatics don’t care.

A 5-year-old boy in Scarborough, Maine apparently died from a gunshot wound, but few details have been released, so no one really knows what happened, but that’s not stopping gun control fanatics from calling for more gun laws.

This tragic death, even though no one knows what happened, has already sparked a debate between the gun control advocates and gun rights advocates.

Incidents like the death of a 5-year-old in Scarborough tend to illicit a strong reaction on both sides of the gun control issue.

Both those for and against gun control say this is a tragic loss.

Bill Harwood, the president of the Maine Gun Safety Coalition, and Bill Harmon, a former military police officer who’s dedicated many hours to teaching gun safety, spoke to CBS 13.

Because so little is known about what occurred Monday night, both men talked about the issue generally…

In my generation, many kids were taught gun safety and how to use a gun and not to play with guns and guess what, there wasn’t nearly as many gun deaths of kids. More homes back them kept loaded guns in the house, but kids were taught not to touch and kids were also taught to respect and obey their parents. Today, kids are NOT taught to respect or obey their parents nor are they taught gun safety and gun respect, proving that the problem isn’t guns, it’s the people.
