Apple has succeeded in getting it's import ban on samsung android devices and a judge ruled that web sites have to abide by the ADA. What is in the water these days?
Why would Microsoft want to de-legimize Android? They make $5 for every Android device sold.

No matter what you think of gun control, two people should be charged with a crime here. First, the 14-year-old (tried as a juvenile, not an adult) for reckless homicide. The second would be the grandparents for failing to properly secure the gun.
Yeah I was just wondering what counts as "properly" storing a gun. People are quick to blame the parents, so I wonder if any amount of precaution is negated if a kid gets it at all. Also at what age is it okay to blame the kid? A 14 yr old is certainly smart enough to get the gun from a hiding spot or safe (maybe by snooping and getting the combo/key) and possibly load it. So many factors..
That's why you tell the kid what the gun is and teach him about how to safely handle it. You don't have to teach him how to shoot it, just how not to kill someone. If the grandparents are guilty of anything it's in not properly instructing their child.
We have no information as to where the firearm was, how it was "un-secured", and what if any instruction the 14 year old had in regards to it.We should hold judgement until we have all the facts. It's a tragedy regardless as to how it happened, but we shouldn't condemn folks we don't now based on vague reports and knee jerk reactions.
Now, if the gun was locked in a proper gun safe and the kid somehow managed to pick the lock, find the key somewhere he shouldn't have been, guess the combination, etc., that's a different case entirely.
"the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)* has reviewed the current medical research on the subject and concluded that if you have children, it is safer not to have a gun in your home"
Sounds like this study would have us ban people from being black as it is a leading cause of gun death.
