    The NYPD shoots for me. I pay taxes.

    Lack self awareness much, BoTR?

    News-flash you can not teach a 5 year old how to "use a gun responsibly" Why?

    Of course not, you start to teach them at 5. Sheesh, girl, think before you rant!

    Viviane - You idiot - 5 year olds need to be kept away from all

    deadly weapons they do not have the mental capacity to reason

    on a level necessary for their own safety or the ability to discern

    what is dangerous or the eye hand coordination to handle such weapons

    safely, they are physiologically and cognitively and developmentally unable

    to grasp the concepts or respond appropriately or to act in their own interests

    thats why we call them -children. That is why it is against the law to leave

    5 year old children unattended in your home, because they are not capable

    of taking care of themselves in even common situations.

    I won't ask you to think before you rant, Viviane, since you seem

    unequipped to the task.

    When my grandfather was 6 years old he drove a team of horses on 9foot 9 bunker. Don't ever underestimate what kids are capable of.

    When I was 7 years old I went into our attic and exstinguished a fire that was surely going to consume our home. Again there is nothing wrong with teaching a little boy or girl about responsible gun ownership.

    Nothing wrong here folks. Everything was done responsibly. If you don't like it that's your choice. Nothing to see here. Move along.

    And I bet the snow used to be deeper back then and he had to walk miles to school without shoes.

    Maybe your grandfather and mine were from the same place.

    My hobby is collecting and shooting airguns. It shares all the same gun safety techniques as regular powder-burner rifles. Some of the rifles designed today can take down big game (big bore pre-charged pneumatics or PCPs, such as Dragon Claw and Sam Yang, both of which are made in Korea. These can be hand-pumped or filled from a scuba tank full of regular air [NOT oxygen! explosion hazard for real] There are other brands now, too). Airguns range from the classic Daisy and Crosman BB/.177cal rifles, all the way up to .45cal, 9mm, and .50cal size ammo.

    Two of my .22 caliber air rifles are considered magnum class (20+/FPE at the muzzle), meaning they are not the classic BB rifle type guns. They can take out bigger game that a BB gun should never even be aimed at in the first place.

    Shooting can be a sport and a hobby. Does anyone question people who enjoy darts? Or tennis (hand eye cordination)? or baseball? Projectiles are involved and can be quite dangerous under all the wrong conditions in all of those sports, too.

    Just my two pennies on it.

    Rub a dud I don't know what to think of you. This past winter has been a rough one. The snow here has been deeper this year than most. I like most people just want spring.

    Truthseeker ...

    I am sure opinions vary here.

    I just hope when you close your eyes and think of me that I don't give you that "special" feeling.
