12 Y/O Shoots Himself while Hunting

Im not a big fan of having kids hunting or being able to handle guns. It's great if the kids are outdoors and getting active and not being inside. Though theres many dangers to hunting. The kid could get shot by a stray bullet or shoot himself, like the kid in the news article. The kids have many objects that could bounce back at him. However a shooting range would be a clear shot. So I think that kids shouldn't really be allowed to hunt but be able to handle guns with super tight restrictions and rules. Sometimes the gun can get in the wrong kids hand and injure himself or someone else.

  1. Also why would the boy have the gun on his foot? You keep it unloaded if it's not in use and you dont place it on the foot. Were was the Uncle during this event??
