the gun in mention was on top of a frig.. he is 12 he knew gun safety if he didn't then someone should have spoken to him.. DON'T put blame where there is none... it is very sad we lose kids everyday.. so parents step up talk to ure kids... don't blame someone tha'ts the problem put blame somewhere else not on the parents.

I agree with you. He wanted to do it, so he did it. It didn't matter where the gun was. He would have found a way to kill himself.

Laws are not a remedy for comon sense. Laws only punish those who do not learn from lifes lessons. Guns do not kill. People kill people!

I have raised four children and have more grandchildren great grandchildren than I can remember. Me and my family has always and always will have weapons ready and available for family defense. If I lock them up out of reach how could they protect protect my family from those that don't ever obey the law?

This is a very tragic thing that has happened n I am for one really good friends with Tylers mother and the blame should not be put on her. It was not in her house that he got the gun... I think Tylers Law is a very good way to open up peoples eyes n.make more parents opens their eyes n realize that things like this does happen so I support his mother in this 100 percent.... Love n prayers to his mom step dad n siblings!

I agree Amy, But The idea of Locking up Your Guns is kinda Crazy, If you and your kids are at home asleep and some man is breaking in your house, you barely have enough time to get up and even get your gun ,what are you gonna do, tell the Guy breaking in to hold on while you look for your keys to unlock your pistol ? You or your kids would be dead, No one wants a kid to get Hurt ,Parents just need to be responsible and put the gun where kids won't be ,,and when the kid gets old enough to...

You or your kids would be dead, No one wants a kid to get Hurt ,Parents just need to be responsible and put the gun where kids won't be ,,and when the kid gets old enough to understand ,tell them how dangerous it is and even let them hear how loud it is and hopefully it will make them scared of it. But we have to be responsible somehow without locking it up, why have it if its locked and takes 5 minutes to open in the dark. I fel sorry for the parents who lost kids ,

We grew up with guns in our house. Noone touched those guns because we were taught to respect them and they weren't for settling differences, but to put food on the table. My father and brothers killed squirrel and deer and we ate what those guns provided. Sure, if you aren't going to teach your child what that loaded gun is for, pass that law. Any responsible gun owner would never leave a child uneducated that they're dangerous. I appreciate you thinking of me on this, Stephanie...

I agree Kim, our Boyd know about guns but also have been taught not play with them cause they aren't toys. Kids need to be educated at a young age .

Just have to share something here...from my 19 year old. I was telling him about this petition and he made a valid point I'm like to share. His words, "Things like this are brought on by people who keep guns and make comments like 'I'll kill that SOB, shoot him between the eyes.' Don't teach your kids that attitude and they won't have it." A wise child, in my view. Seriously, you're teaching your children with every word you speak. You can't expect them to have respect for guns or people or themselves if you don't show them!!

Take time to teach your children not to play with guns that they are for adult use or supervision... I have always shot guns, owned guns since I was younger than twelve but yet I was taught not to play with or have unless a adult was with me... Growing up we kept a lOaded gun in our home just like most say for protection of break in and such..

I a sorry for your loss but think of it this way if someone is breaking into your house and going to hurt or kill your child and family what would a locked up gun do for you. I grew up with guns and my dad taught me from a young age to never touch that gun and it worked for me and my two brothers. I know it by some chance won't work for all. I am so sorry and pray God gives you the strength you need. I can't even imagine loosing a child. I can't agree with this. I am sorry.

the boy committed suicide, the gun should have been out of kids reach.
