    These sound like terroristic threats. Trials should be in adult courts only – no juvenile court crap – with maximum penalties upon convictions.

      If the parents are on welfare, section 8 or any other hand out program they need to be booted out.

        You’re an idiot! People living in poverty dont have guns laying around the house. Well off families stockpile guns out of fear. You know the type, usually have someone named alice. All families with an alice family member should be booted out.
