    I was in the gun shop today just browsing.:D I noticed a couple young teens black and white males. They were looking at semis and shotguns and I heard them make comments like Ill bet that will blow a hole in "somebody". I was like uhoh:uhoh: I kept browsing around and they got louder and louder. Then in came a cop. The teens left quickly. I told the policeman what they were saying and he laughed it off. So what gives? Is it alright to go into a bussiness and talk about such and people are supossed to look the other way? I'm so confused about young people today.:confused: I even heard and old lady say "yes I can run old Roy slap out of town with that right there"! (12ga shotgun).:eek:

    Depends upon the context, but sounds harmless at face value. Can't lock them up for being teenagers. (Although, it might be fun to try.)

    Actually, my gun dealer suggested the "hole-creating" effect of my 12-ga when it came down to SD. All depends where you go, and how utterly PC:barf: your wretched hive of scum and villainy has become.

    My wretched hive only has pockets of PC-ism, and the gunstore isnt one of them (Thank God.).

    Supposedly we still have a right to free speech in this country.

    Even idiots and morons have a right to speak their mind.

    I'll bet it will too. So what!

    Now if they said some thing like "Hey buddy stop eaves-dropping or I'll Blow a hole in you." to you, then you may have a case. :)

    Whats the different between this and the Colombine tapes?

    Those guys were out shooting their guns. And they were labeled as Massacre in Training. AU Ive also seen this in shops and at the range. Its all over the place.:eek:

    RAP music, Movies, TV shows.

    Those kids sound less than retarded, the ones who don't think that gun will blow a hole in somebody are the ones I'm worried about. :neener: , may be you should have followed them home and then told the police.:uhoh:

    IIRC, somebody here had a sig line that quoted Ted Nugent, to the effect of "Idiots should be encouraged to speak their minds. That way, we'll know who the idiots are."

    " My son would never say any thing like that, etc." - just shows that your son is not an idiot; no problem.

    It is a sad commentary on our society today but what do you think the cop should (or could) have done? They hadn't committed any crime. Do you believe a kindly word from the nice policeman would have had any affect on the two in question. Or would they go home to mommy and complain, where upon she would call internal affairs about the pigs harrassing her little darlings.

    Seriously, what should the cop have done?

    I've had to tell my younger brother (he's 20 and a casual shooter, but has expressed interest in buying his own rifle) 2 or 3 times to "Quit being a jack*** and stop talking about shooting people" while we were at the range. Each time he was trying to discuss .308 vs .223 or .308 vs 12ga in a SHTF scenario, but was going about it all wrong and making the hunter-types a little nervous.

    Dummies never seem to be in short supply. It's got something to do with the law of supply and demand, I've heard.

    I, for one, have never looked at a Robbie Dalton Scorpion or a box of Cor-Bon 10mm Auto and said aloud to a friend "Y'know, you could really ____ somebody up with this..." :uhoh:

    Thats a tough sort of situation to look at because its one of the few situations in which gun laws might actually lead to increased safety in that they could prevent those dumbasses from getting a firearm. However, as we all know, the fact that some people abuse a right does not make it any less of a right. It does however make it harder to fight for the preservation of that right. From my experience most anti-gun types think that's what all gun owners are like. When they think gun owner / self defense advocate they get a mental image of a racist redneck, a drug dealing pimp, or a crazy shell-shocked vet barracaded in his house with an M-60 and a tin-foil hat. Thanks Hollywood! I'm gonna go rent a movie. :D

    Me either, but the original post suggested that the police should have DONE something about it. I for one prefer a country where its legal for kids to say stupid thing without being hassled by the police.....if the store owner/representative told them to bug off...cool.

    AuburnTigerGuy, I was just joking about the eavesdropping (note the smilie), I too would not have been happy about about the goofy kids, but your description does not contain anything illegal. P.S. Go Gators! :)

    My first reaction to this...

    "My mama always said, 'Stupid is as stupid does.' "

    Name that movie...

    Seriously though, there is no law against talking dumb. Nor should there been. Let them excercise their constitutional right to free speech allllll they want. Trying to regulate what people think and say is just going to lead to trouble. But if they cross the line and commit a crime, then drop the hammer on them.

    My $2*10^-2...
