10 Month old baby aquires gun licence

Recommended Posts

Aye, but he is only allowed play with the gun when he turns 14. That headline is misleading.

Just in time for another high school shooting....got to love america.

Jesus. A 14 year old kid called Bubba, armed with an antique shotgun in Illinois... Sounds like the script to a cheesy horror film. :up:

The licence includes a picture of a toothless Bubba and a squiggle that represents his best attempt at a signature.

That is a fantastic all purpose statement.

Another incident in America.

When will gun laws be changed? Surely the government has to realise that if it is harder for people to get hold of guns, then less incidents like this will occur? o_O

they're far too attached to their archaic right to bear arms to go changing it for such trivial things as reducing the chances of getting shot in the face by some maniac.

also, in general a lot of americans don't look at it as 'this wouldn't happen if it was harder to get guns, thus it needs to be harder to get guns.' there more concerned about the individual, thus they see it as the fault of each individual shooter (pretty much 'guns don't kill, people do') rather than their gun laws. or something like that.

So why is it that since the banning of hand guns and semi auto weapons in the uk gun crime has gone through the roof....?

Uh, how? It's hardly as though you can't step outside in the street without some five-year-old shooting your balls off with grandpa's Beringer. The type of high-profile publicity given to any sort of shooting that occurs in Scotland is an indication of its relative rarity.

Thats fair, but it still doesnt detract from the fact that gun crime is far worse since the ban...and in case you hadnt noticed Scotland is part of the uk, so we have to take Englands statistics into account.

Your chance of getting struck by lightning is still relatively low but if you stand on top of a mountain, wearing a metal hat, with your middle finger pointing at god, it suddenly increases.

Americans shoot each other becuase it is easy to get guns, there is many social problems and the country has a violent culture etc.

Swiss people and Canadians do not shoot each other becuase they aren't (usually) violent people and don't have the same social problems.
