I have a better idea for tougher laws to reduce gun crimes by juveniles -- send the parents to jail. The children should be in counseling, rehabilitation or foster homes. The adults who failed to parent them properly should face the consequences.
If parents were made to serve time for the crimes of their children, perhaps they would take parenting more seriously and do a better job of it. Or maybe they would just choose not to become parents at all. Either way, problem solved.
