A BB gun is a weapon! [View all]

Recently heard about a kid getting shot by police who was carrying a BB gun that looked like "a real gun". His parents apparently equated a BB gun with a toy gun. Sorry folks but a BB gun is a "real gun" with limited capabilities but it can still kill and or injure someone if they are hit with a BB in the right places. It is not a toy gun!!!!

Why are parents letting their kids out of the house with a BB gun? They frankly are responsible for this kid getting shot by a police officer. Yes police officers need to be well trained and better trained regarding when and how to use their lethal weapons. But when you have "toy guns" and especially BB guns that look just like regular pistols, there are real issues involved.
