Response to pnwmom (Reply #41)

Fri Feb 16, 2018, 12:05 AM

47. There isn't a point except as a response to the OP.

The original post said he shouldn't be "blamed" because he was a good person who took in a homeless and troubled teenager and he couldn't have known what the teenager would do.

My comment is that he was wrong to allow the teenager to bring in an automatic weapon.

I don't see why we can't believe he was wrong without having experienced it ourselves. We make judgements of right and wrong all the time without having to personally experience every situation.

I'm not going to send hate mail, I'm not going to protest his house, I'm not going to do anything immoral, but I have an opinion that is contrary to you and the OP that I am free to express.

I believe he showed poor judgement in allowing the gun to come into the house. I believe I would not have every allowed a 19-year-old to bring that gun into my house. I raised boys. The brains of 19-year-old boys aren't fully mature yet. The father should have had better judgement.

I have a strong suspicion the father would agree with me. I don't need 20/20 hindsight to have made that call correctly. That doesn't make me perfect. I've made many other mistakes. I just wouldn't have allowed a 19-year-old to bring that gun into my house.
