The kids today have not been taught any responsibilities, nor are there any consequences for anything they do.
Every kid I knew growing up in the country had a rifle and a shotgun. I do not ever remenber anyone even kiddingly making a remark about shooting a person. Most of those kids worked on farms even if their parents were not farmers. They baled hay, cleaned stalls, walked beans and detasseled corn. Physical work is the key to good health and healthy thinking.
