    Makes no sense at all, as usual.

    Yeah, I work with a few Second Amendment nuts that wouldn’t even let their 5 year old shoot a BB gun unattended.

    Gunnism doesn’t have an age limit.

    @Dumba— Conservatives
    Maybe you might want to do some research before calling the cartoonist an idiot. This has to do with a website that sells guns for kids. As the story states, “They’re marketing to parents who would buy guns for children.” Rogers is not advocating selling guns to kids.

    My grandfather taught me to shoot with a 22 cal pistol when I was six. It looked like a cap gun. He kept it at the head of his bed and I could see it every time I walked into the room. I NEVER touched it without his permission. He taught me to shoot with other guns as I got older, but I never touched a single one of his twelve weapons without his permission or supervision, even tho all were where I could have taken one.
    Parents are the first line of defense. The line failed. Now this boy has this on his shoulders for the rest of his life and the parents are going to be going through legalities for years.
    I wonder if they blame the boy, or themselves?
    Sadly,

    When my kids were little, at the height of the anti (Vietnam) war protests, they weren’t even allowed to play with toy guns. ….say, this might be an answer to the school shootings! Send every kid to school with his own gun!

    Guns like cigarettes serve 1 purpose, to kill. I can understand someone having a hunting rifle or a handgun for personal protection if the individual feels threatened. But why must people have 20-30 or more firearms ? No 1 is advocating banning the 2nd Amendment but marketing guns to kids is unconscionable. There needs to be some common sense & require background checks to weed out criminal & mentally ill people. Of course there’s always going to be a black market for guns but we still need to have safeguards in place to keep guns away from minors as well.

    “Guns like cigarettes serve 1 purpose, to kill.”


    That’s wrong, as it applies to cigarettes. The purpose of cigarettes is to deliver nicotine, a substance with some marvelous psychoactive properties: it both sharpens the mind and calms the nerves. It is, however, highly addictive, and it’s unfortunate that the most common way of getting it – by burning tobacco leaves and inhaling the smoke therefrom – involves sundry extremely hazardous byproducts. And, of course, it’s true that in large doses nicotine ITSELF is a poison, but that’s true of MANY substances (like salt, or vitamin A) which we don’t consider “deadly” in and of themselves.


    But you’re right about guns; even if you AREN’T going for the killshot, their express design function is to propel bits of metal to punch holes in living tissue.

    It’s interesting that you and I immediately knew what this was about and we’re not American, but quite a few Americans seem to be clueless about the ’toon’s theme, going as far as to be offensive to the cartoonist. I assume it was reported as widely on your country’s news as was here in the U.K.
    We were even more astounded to learn that some guns are also manufactured in the USA in smaller dimensions specifically aimed at children.


    It really doesn’t show the USA in a sensible light.

    You bring up an interesting angle. Hopefully, themselves. It would not have occurred to me that one might blame the boy but you introduce a very interesting notion.

    “We were even more astounded to learn that some guns are also manufactured in the USA in smaller dimensions specifically aimed at children.”


    Well, when specifically aiming at children you SHOULD use smaller guns, so as not to waste firepower. You don’t use an elephant gun to go rabbit hunting, after all.

    @fritzoid

    :-) Indeed.


    I came back to this thread to actually ask whether other countries’ gun manufacturers also produce smaller versions for children. Idiocy knows no national borders after-all.

    I knew what it was about immediately.
    That company that makes guns for kids makes a girls model with a pink stock.
    I first learned of these guns 4 years ago when a chain sporting goods store advertised a $100 rifle. I went over to the store only to find that it was a “youth model.”
