Yeah, that will teach kids not to play like kids....

Do have to ask where the parents were on the protective gear? My kid, when he was 9 y.o., caught me headed to the mailbox with his MP5 airsolf. Fuck those things hurt in full-auto! He though it was funny as hell.

Don't let the law find out. You kid could be locked up for assalt with a deadly weapon.
Link Posted: 1/31/2011 5:59:55 AM EDT
There are some folks that, if you tried to take their son from their house, the difference between assault with a deadly weapon and a kid shooting an airsoft gun would become painfully, overwhelmingly, and totally clear to a whole bunch of people.

To the OP: Do the courts have the DA's back? They offered the kid a plea down to misdemeanor assault. Again, WTF? The parents of the kid that got shot don't want to press charges. Will the court really prosecute or convict?

Just because of this asshattery, I'm going to get my two boys some air soft rifles so they can shoot each other.

To my understanding there are three other charges against this kid as well, and the DA in JefCo is an asshat who would prosecute. He already prosecuted an old man (in his 80s) for defending his property against illegal aliens who were steeling his trailer.

We used to have BB gun wars growing up. A Crossman 760 can bury a BB under the skin quite well.


Fuck, I didn't know I was being groomed to be the next Charles Manson.

When I grew up, we'd save our money up for the big sales after the 4th. That way, we could shoot each other all year long!

Were you killed or did you recover - Only in Colorado Airsof is a dealy weapon and you would clearly have been cut in two with your son put in prison. Airsoft..... they are not toys

Oh wait.

Danny, I've sent boys younger than you to the gas chamber. Didn't want to do it. But I felt I owed it to them.

Get 'em into the system, STAT!!!

What better way to use our resources than to declare every child with a toy gun a Felon? I mean, do we REALLY want this kid to vote, or hold a job, when he's older?

Not to mention the excellent job security for prisons, correctional staff, SWAT teams, social workers, pharmacists, etc....everybody wins!!

A Brave New World indeed...

Lets review.

13 year old kid gets pissed at friend and intentionally shoots him in the eye with a plastic bb going 300-500 fps.

I'd say something above and beyond an ass whupping is in order.

Felony assault?

Nah.

The fact his friend ended up with no permanent injuries should make a difference.

But in most criminal cases intent, not result, is considered.

If this was just a result of kids being dumbasses, I would say no big deal.

Kid shot his friend in the face in spite.

He's 13, not 5.

I would have been happy with him taking a ride around the block in the back of a cruiser.

Yeah, but if one of my friends had gotten pissed and shot one of us in the eye (on purpose) we would have all put him in the hospital.

That (unfortunately) is already SOP in Denver. If your kid asks a few too many questions in a Denver public school, the .gov will be right there with the Ritalin. They will even come to your home on the weekends to be sure you are keeping little johnny spun up.

At that point the DA should have no business in the matter.

Yep. Though after some experimentation (ie: blowing a hole through the neghbors garage door and blowing up part of his drum set) we decided to curtail purchases of finned rockets.

The kid chose to shoot his friend, hitting him in the eye, with a (6mm plastic) BB because he was mad at him. This is not an airsoft milsim or BB war. It is a boy using an implement that has the capability to inflict injury that can have devestating lifelong effects on another out of anger. That is UNACCEPTABLE behavior. What prompted him to do it? Maybe he has some underlying S-E problem or mental issue....or maybe he is just a punk that needs to be put through the system like any other punk. Next time, he won't write checks he doesn't want cashed. Slugging people in the face because your mad at them isn't acceptable. Shooting them isn't either.

I guess it isn't possible he learned his lesson when he thought he hurt his friend, or got an earful and possible a very red ass from his parents? He has to be "put through the system" to learn a lesson?

Sometimes slugging people in the face because you are mad at them is acceptable; context matters.
