Keep firearms away from kids

Dear Editor:The story of Eric Stoneman, who is on trial for killing his 9-year-old neighbor, is unbelievably sad. I just weep every time I think of Eric’s bewildered plea after the shooting – “This is a dream, right Amy?”Even at age 14, children don’t fully understand what’s real and what’s not.Parents, protect your children from this kind of tragedy! If you must have firearms in the home, keep them securely locked. Eric Stoneman’s parents apparently didn’t, and they will suffer anguish over it for the rest of their lives.Dave ReedCarbondale
