An outrage in the community? My dad had a .22 rifle he carried on his bike and would shoot it as he rode his bike to school. Imagine that today! Yet it was a much safer place when he was growing up than today with libtards afraid of kids even touching a gun. Sad times.

I am shocked and outraged by this display of callousness by the SWAT team members. The horror, the horror

I think I was five when I first got to shoot with my dad.

This police department deserves some praise not criticism for doing this. Too much "us" versus "them" thinking between communities and law enforcement on both sides. Police officers talking to kids and letting them handle firearms that are unloaded and under supervision, like a father might with his son... seems to me like a positive thing.

I lol'd at the article, however, the best part of that link was the one comment:


Remember, every time a child is responsibly introduced to the best tools for the protection of freedoms, a liberal weeps for the safety of a criminal.

I must be a horrible dad. Forgive me counselwoman...


The smile that only shooting a .50 cal can bring to a child. (Well, there is also something else but he is way too young for that.)



Where is the outrage here? This carelessness is unacceptable! It may make him want to join the military when he grows up.



Smiling at the thought of starting WW III.



Double the guns, double the fun.

I did my police training for the National Park Service in Santa Rosa. Some of our instructors were from Santa Rosa PD.

God forbid they educate the children on the types of stuff that cops use in their job. Who knows, they might actually want to become police officers some day. We can't have that now, can we?

My state is a train wreck.

Well, just remember a possible scenario...............if they can create generations of those who think guns are icky, they may be able to convince those future generations to vote away gun rights.

i'll post the same thing i posted in the other thread:

the irony in these situations is always thick since the complaints about "the dangers of exposing young children to firearms" always comes from the same people that insist that early exposure to sex education is the best way to keep kids safe and healthy.

the comments section is getting *smashed* by pro-gunners. nice to see.

For a second I thought this was in the UK, until I read the Santa Rosa part. I was about to take a bunch of my old issues of Shotgun News and Guns & Ammo magazine with me on my next rip to the UK and leave them laying about the place.

My 7 year old actually has two guns. A rifle and a pistol, both 22LR. He keeps his rifle in his bedroom, and the pistol in the safe.

Gun safety and mastery starts early in my family. Fuck a bunch of douchebags that don't like it.

This is posted EVERYWHERE thanks to Attila Nagy. Who is that? A community organizer in Santa Rosa. Responsible for other such great events:

They also run under the Green Party: http://www.smartvoter.org/ca/sn/demo.html

ie...Nagy's a waaaay left wing nutjob that happened to scream enough to get some attention for a couple minutes.

Funny how I grew up with unlocked gun cabinets filled with a couple dozen rifles and shotguns, and never shot myself or my friends.

I was shooting and handling firearms at an early age. I NEVER touched my father's and grandfather's guns unless I had been granted permission. Same deal with both my mom and dad when they were kids.

Lord knows what would've happened if those .22LR rounds in my pocket at school were used in a shooting or just "went off."

These photos were taken in 1968. The kids now have kids of their own and none have ever killed anyone. None have been in jail. None have become a burden to society

You are not alone, we got libtards like that in Michigan.

Luckily, they haven't been in large enough numbers to change our firearms laws.

But they are out there no matter where you live.

Wish I had some pictures from the Texas 4-H Shooting Sports Games. All in all I think we had something over 2,000 shooters this year (abet there were probably no more than 50 on a line at any given time - there were 3 rifle/pistol lines and 2 staged events running pretty much 12 hrs a day for a week, plus who knows how many shotgun ranges - and that does not even start to consider archery.

education is paramount.

look at their answers for drinking / driving / drugs / tolerance and sex

why should firearms be any different

Replace ignorance, mystique, glorification and fear with knowledge and respect, and I'm pretty sure most problems will go away.

My kid was shooting happy-switched sub guns at 9yo. 9mm/.22's even before then.

One of my earliest memories was of wearing my grandfather's (unloaded) .22 revolver on my hip and him teaching me to shoot. I couldn't have been more than 4 or 5.

I came back from the range a couple weeks ago and loaded guns into the safe. My 4 year old came up and said, "Dad, can you show me how to shoot?" He already knows they aren't toys, since we've worked on the stop/don't touch/Leave the area/tell an adult since he was a toddler. He told me he wants to start practicing with his Buzz Lightyear disc shooter.

Better IMHO to demystify and ingrain safety, than to have him be at a friend's place when they discover someone's loaded gun. It works. As a kid, my friend pulled his dad's 10/22 out and started to monkey paw it. I told him it was a neat gun, but to put it back.

Oh, yeah and being around fire trucks will make them start fires; or being around women will make them pimps...as they become too familiarized with the opposite sex

How do people become so stupid?
