    Pathetic and sad days that we live in to have to ponder things like this.

    Yes.

    Considering the crap I did when I was 12? Yes. Without hesitation.

    But to answer the actual question you posted;

    No.

    They are too heavy to lift and do not fit in a pocket. Perhaps an 8 year old if they were skinny or had particularly bony elbows.

    you could strap one to your back and they could fire while you ran for cover.

    my first instinct would probably be to tell him he needs to be sent to timeout and slap him across the head. Blame it on the parents this is what we live with today, his parents are probably tweakers and beat him and hes probably far more under privileged then he deserves to be.

    I would bet that had one of this citizens been armed and pulled their own gun he would have been wetting his pants. Everybody is a tough guy when the victim is helpless.

    I'm not taking the time to ask for ID and a Birth Cert. If some one is in my house uninvited, not wearing a badge, and armed I will not hesitate to stop the threat to our lives. be it with a baseball bat, 5 cell mag light, Kitchen butcher knife, Hand forged Fireplace poker or one of the various firearms in the house.

    The first thing I might defend myself and the wife with is the TV remote on the way to the baseball bat and a firearm.

    Yup. Being in my house uninvited is a pretty quick way to get your ticket punched.

    A 12 year old can and will kill you just as fast as a 30 year old.And will shoot sooner.

    I would shoot to kill.... age is nothing but a number. Can you imagine the story the presstitutes media would come up with if an armed minor was shot and killed?

    Funny how these little psychos can get select-fire weapons easier than we can.

    I don't wish to shoot anyone, but the rabid animal comment (#14) applies. Would you hesitate to shoot a rabid puppy? Age is not a factor, other than a 12 yr old likely has less compunctions about capping the victim.
