Gage’s older sister, Brailee, who is now 8 years old, said she got her pink rifle as a 4th birthday present. ABC News’ Juju Chang with the Laveres. Credit: ABC News “[Guns are] for protecting us and they’re for hunting,” she said. Their father, Casey Lavere, is a life-long hunter, passing down a revered family tradition. His rugged outdoor escapades have made him a hit on YouTube, showing him ice fishing in Idaho or bear hunting with a bow and arrow in the back woods, but mostly hunting game with high-caliber rifles. “We want people to know that we’re just regular people,” said Casey Lavere’s wife, Kayli Lavere. “We’re not shooting everything and pulling our guns out and playing with guns all the time. We are very responsible and respectful of guns.” Watch the full story on “Nightline” tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
