That kid must had some really stupid and clueless ass parents!
Airsoft guns can cost $100+ a pop. I know because my nephew was working me for one. I knew he was 12 and already saw he had no discipline in not pointing a BB gun. If a youngster is not trained how to handle this kind of toy gun, he should not be given one. And not give the cop a free pass but gotta agree, his parents should have taught him how to use it and never, never take it out in public. That is crazy especially once you’ve seen one.
Yeah I'm hip I've seen those guns and they do look real and you are absolutely right, I've been shot with a bb gun a couple times by stupid ass boys in the hood and to be honest boys do reckless stuff growing up, they think its funny but a pellet gun is an air gun and will penetrate and kill. No kid should be running up and down the street with any sort of gun like that. Where I grew up BB and pellet guns were common and plenty squirrels and birds got killed for sport and it does look cruel to look out your living room window watching a kid shoot at a defenseless bird or squirrel but that was back then, this is now and its not cool.
