Why on Earth does America produce child sized shot guns?

Is the person on the right a boy or a man?

Is the person on the right a boy or a man?

A judge in Pennsylvania has denied a request from a 12-year-old homicide suspect to have his case transferred to juvenile court.
Jordan Brown is facing adult charges in the February 2009 shooting death of his father’s pregnant girlfriend, and a judge turned down a petition to have the case transferred from criminal to juvenile court.
Police have said the boy, then 11, shot Kenzie Marie Houk, who was eight months’ pregnant, once at point-blank range in her farmhouse in western Pennsylvania.

Why have juvenile courts if you are not going to use them? How on Earth is a 12 year old not a juvenile? What on Earth is a “youth model 20-gauge shotgun”?

Children are often jealous if a parent gets a new partner, they see such partners as coming between their mum and dad. Few get given the tools to act out on that jealousy. This is beyond disgusting in so many ways.

    You see, a youth sized gun is so that we here Marikuns can teach our youngins that guns are a tool to be treated with respect. See, when you learn the kids how to handle a gun responsibly, then they will use them as God intended.

    Americans who rabidly oppose any type of gun control measures refuse to acknowledge that a gun in a household is at least 11 times more likely to be used in domestic violence or an accidental shooting than they are to be used in defense of life or property.
    The gun lobby is very strong in the US. and the right wing has courted the NRA and gun lobbies in order to secure that vote. They are complicit in propegating the myth that gun ownership to provide protection to home and family should also include inane items like assault rifles, youth-sized weapons, free access to concealed weapons permits and lack of regulatory restriction on use and storage.

      I really fin it hard to imagine how anyone could think a real – live – child sized shot gun is a good idea. When they get angry with a school child in a fight, a parent or a teacher, aren’t the consequences obvious?

      I have to say I hate the American prostitution of the term “Conservative” as well. Angela Merkel, David Cameron, even going back to Margaret Thatcher and way back to Winston Churchill, they are Conservatives. Bonehead, the Alaskan Hillbilly, the tea baggers and the motley collection calling themselves Conservative in America are nothing but right wing fundamentalists.

    They don’t really know what it means to be conservative. It’s part of the lie. And they are the least fiscally “conservative” conservatives the world has ever seen.

    Thanks for the blog. It’s awesome.

      I just had a quick look at yours as well. I’ve just added you to the blog roll. I see you are getting the same kick back from right wing nutters I did when I first challenged a Republican hate site. Keep up the good work they hate being exposed.
