If you’re opposed to gun violence, you can’t condone it even if you find the victim to be distasteful.

But you can blame the victim in this case for promoting violence, abusing the boy, and keeping guns in his house in an irresponsible manner. A 10 year old should not have access to a .357 Magnum while his father is asleep.

Who’s condoning it?

I was almost going to kinda-sorta disagree with you in a very nit-picky way, but then I tried a thought experiment with myself: If the dad had been a member of Hamas or AQ and everything else was equal—promotion of violence & hatred, abuse of the son, accessible weapons, etc.—would I still nit-pick?

Nope, I can’t honestly say that I would given that the boy was only 10-years old.

I just read on the commet section of this link:

Proves something that I’ve said for years–That child you are beating today is one day going to be big enough to pick up a bat. To pick up a two by four. Or, to pick up a gun. And god help you then.
