kids who can't be trusted with a gun get hold of them, but the maximum penalty attached to a felony conviction is an attack on the second amendment.
There's a debate to be held about what age the responsibility transfers, but it is not nine when it comes to guns, fire, driving, etc. In some ways, nine year olds are more dangerous than eight year olds. They have some kind of developmental phase where they get more confident and brave but don't get more sense until they are ten. Maybe it's the mistakes they make at nine that lead to them getting more sense by ten, developmental phases are funny like that.
