Oh I agree with you, my dad also 'gave' me a bb gun (was his) when I was young and taught me how to shoot it etc. Problem is times have changed in two aspects (1) times change as much as we let them ... in other words to what extent do we change our behaviors to conform to what others expect (not breaking laws of course) and (2) the reality of society's view on firearms, potential for violence, recent violence in last decade and people reacting and also overreacting to it (i.e., 30 years ago bringing a pocket knife to school was no big deal really, but today in light of school violence, etc you would probably be suspended and ordered for counseling lol).when i was 6 i played with BB guns, and so did most of us, on my 10th birthday i was given a pocket knife as a gift, and yes i carried it everywhere even to school, no harm done
its the rest of his story the bothers me, the mistaken ID card, and the squirt gun commet
Bottomline is the OP is probably a troll, but it sparked some interesting discussions here. I still say the OP is a chick with a d***.
