    Police apprehended the boy shortly after the incident, the station reported.


    If I had been the clerk, and had shot the kid... I feel a bit sick just thinking about it. Stupid kid. Probably very stupid parents.

    Do parents still spank their kids?

    Limiting poverty and building a stronger educational system cures our woes.

    Did he really need a BACKPACK of fake guns.
    What was he going to use guns 2-10 if fake gun 1 didn't work?

    I mean did he think this was going to happen.
    Kid pulls out fake 1911.
    Clerk: hey thats fake.
    Kid: hang on one sec.
    Kid pulls out Glock 9mm.
    Clerk: not sure if that one is fake or not but everyone obsessed with caliber size tells me a 9mm can't break the skin.
    Kid: I got a bigger one in here.
    Kid pulls out Uzi SMG
    Clerk: thats a Class III item. Since fully automatic weapons are strictly controlled and are rarely used by criminals I am willing to risk my life that it is a fake.
    Kid: good point.
    Kid pulls out a XD .40
    Clerk: ok now that one looks realistic, got good stopping power, is a likely weapon someone robbing a Wallgreens would have....
    ok here the money.

    He's 11. I doubt he did a lot of thinking.

    Yes, like how could easily be dead right now. Lot of these idiots blacken the orange tips to be "cool". Good way to get shot.

    And somehow, this will all end up being the NRAs fault :banghead:

    This just shows a lack of discipline at home. What a world we live in.

    Psywarrior, sadly I think you may be right - somehow they will be blamed for this.

    Hopefully his new foster parents will raise him better after he gets out of juvie.

    Well, we certainly need to start looking at very harsh penalties for unlicensed and unregistered toy guns, with an eye toward a total ban as soon as they are all registered.:cuss:

    No sense ranting about the parents. "Dad" is probably MIA ever since "Mom" got knocked up, and "Mom" is probably laid up in the rack with catch of the day, smoking dope and whatever else the two of them would be doing.

    The kid is lucky to be alive, and will be even luckier if Child Protection farms him out to some caring couple for the rest of his young years.

    Uhh, Disney World. He probably finished robbing drunk tourists downtown (bars close @ 2 am) and needed another "score". Joe

    So what do you think would happen if someone shot him in self-defense? Does it change the dynamic of self-defense at all if it is a kid threatening your life? Would you get crucified regardless of how justified you were, just because it was a kid? I suspect a lot of the head-in-the-sand types in our society would refuse to get beyond the "he was just a kid!" aspect and you would have an awful time defending your actions. Thoughts?

    Isn't this that same kid who went joy riding in his grandmas car, then somehow managed to get on a plane and fly across the country?
