Welcome to My Nightmare.

Ten to twelve-year-old point a gun to your head at bad breath distance.

The gun as we know is just an object. The bullet that comes out of it is another object; it will not fly any slower or produce less damage just because a little boy pulls the trigger. If it hits you, you will be gravely injured or dead, therefore the use of deadly force to defend oneself should apply.
But Lord! What a burden to carry.

If anything, this video is a grim reminder that we don’t know who is gonna attack us, when is he/she gonna do it or where. Any mental image we have of the perpetrator is just mental prevarication.

  1. Though relatively rare, some Iraqi insurgents were quite young. We often talked in the team room about what we’d do if we encountered a child violating the ROE. The consensus was that you treated them like adults. To paraphrase something I read on another gun blob, “Play adult games, win adult prizes.”

    I would not be surprised though to find some prosecutors that would make a big stink about an adult shooting a child, no matter how capable of murder that child was. *cough* Trayvon Martin *cough*


  2. My opinion: Age is of no consequence once the person is capable of understanding what happens when the trigger is pulled. Not that I’d not have a second or two or three of hesitation because of a tender age, but I’d sure be getting my cute bunns off the X while that hesitation to shoot is being overcome by incoming.
