The child stated that he was mad at his father, but so far there has been no evidence of abuse in the family. Per news media, the child is being held in a Juvenile Detention Center and will be charged as a juvenile with premeditated murder.
Other reports stated that the father is an avid hunter and had trained his son to shoot prarie dogs.
The reason I am posting this story is not for the sensationalism of the story, but to bring attention to the fact of the importance of firearm safety in the home. Even though this child was experienced and trained in the handling of weapons, YOU STILL DON'T ALLOW THEM FREE REIN. SAFETY FIRST ENTAILS ALWAYS KEEPING FIREARMS OUT OF THE HANDS OF CHILDREN EXCEPT WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
I know, I know, you are saying, so what if the father handed the child the gun and they were going hunting and the child turned on the father - yes, that could have happened, but the fact that this 8 year old was able to have access to this rifle ALONG with the ammunition on his own is way below the safety limitations that should be implemented and upheld in the home.

A LITTLE VETERANS DAY HISTORY FOR YOU:
VETERANS DAY IS CELEBRATED ON NOVEMBER 11TH. IF IT FALLS ON A SUNDAY, THEN IT IS CELEBRATED ON MONDAY. IF IT FALLS ON A SATURDAY, THEN IT CAN BE CELEBRATED EITHER ON FRIDAY OR SATURDAY.
VETERANS DAY WAS ALSO KNOWN AND IS ALSO CELEBRATED AS ARMISTICE DAY OR REMEMBRANCE DAY.
Armistice Day is the anniversary of the symbolic end of World War I which ended November 11, 1918 - 90 years ago. It commemorates the armistice (the armistice treaty) that was signed between the Allies and Germany at Rethondes, France, for the hostilities on the Western Front. It took affect at eleven o'clock in the morning on the eleventh day of the eleventh month. While this official date to mark the end of the war reflects the cease fire on the Western Front, hostilities continued in other regions, especially across the former Russian Empire (also known as Modern Russia which existed until near the end of the war) and in parts of the old Ottoman Empire (Turkish State).
