Boys will be boys. Take away play guns, take away fantasy games - then what's left but real weapons and real games?

First of all, no one was killed. Second, it's never appropriate to label a ten-year-old a killer. Third, to even get to that point, this child must have experienced significant trauma in his own life. That doesn't excuse the behavior but geez!

Ah I see. He only planned to kill someone. A ten year old can absolutely be called a killer. Perhaps you're older than I and don't remember, but 10 year olds have quite a bit more self control than one might imagine.

Sure, ones who have had stable childhoods and stable caretakers who teach them self control. Not every kid gets that. Unstable early childhood and especially trauma can seriously mess a kid up.
