Caudle lifted her daughter's shirt Monday and showed the damage: two red lines along the side of Kaylee's belly.

umm, your kid scraped across something.

Frank N Stein: It's obvious that we need to ban assault BB guns.

Only if they are black and have a barrel shroud.

mizchief: Meh, better than getting hit with shotguns filled with rock salt.

Better for the person who fired it at least. You do that and get caught, you are looking at serious time. I always find it funny how some yokel types seem to think this is ok. We hear all about what a responsibility firearm ownership is and how responsible owners are careful, but these guys will go and shoot at a kid to "teach them a lesson". But it's totally ok, because it is loaded with something that is, usually, not lethal! ... unless they happened to stick in the wrong round, or there is a problem with the manufacture of it, or they are too close or something.

It really infuriates me as a gun owner because shiat like that leads to the perception of gun owners being morons who think guns are the solution to all problems. It also stands counter to all the safety lessons parents give kids. They sit there and tell them "Never point a gun at anything you aren't ready to destroy, especially a person," only for some dumb fark to do just that.

Also pretty stupid because if the person you shoot at is armed, they are 100% justified in shooting back and they will probably be doing it with lead.

Lenny.Bostoch: Solve the problem out of earshot range and far enough away that you won't get a knock on the door or teargas through the window.

Notice to ATF/FBI/local sheriff: this is a photo from the web of a 0.75" long origami miniature model  enlarged to show detail. Don't bother coming knocking on my tent.

Oh look at that pistol grip this is clearly an assault weapon.

IronOcelot: ArmednHammered: noitsnot: Gyrfalcon: Are those beanbag rounds cops use available to the general public?

I have seen them advertised - but I've never seen salt, and I can't really believe people are doing that much hand-loading.  Smacks of rural myth.

Love the fin-stabilized rubber rocket.  (Rubber rocket - heh heh)

Back in the day the rock salt was a hand load. You only had to get hit with that once to get the idea that what you were doing was pissing someone off and you didn't do that again. We need to bring those days back.
/my lawn, get off it!

I got blasted with rock salt one night because I was cutting across a neighbors ranch after I had been told repeatedly not to. He had a low wall of about 3 feet with poles set with barbed wire. He waited until I had crossed over onto his property and lit up my butt and legs.
Damn that stuff burned.

And I bet you got your but kicked when you got home for pissing off the neighbor, I know I did. That's how we learned to respect other peoples property. Today kids destroy property with impunity because unless you get them on film in 3D, from 12 different angles, complete with Michael Bay lens flare, the police won't do squat and the little bastards know it.

KrispyKritter: children are supposed to scream and play and run amuck, that's their job. IMHO this is one of those times Police should not only be allowed but encouraged to beat the shiat out of BB gun boy.

So the "lines on her BELLY" that she received while running AWAY, testimony would lead you to convict?  You are a completely useless human.  I bet you have already served on a jury as well.

The ironic thing is, if any one of those kids tripped and broke their ankles, the home owner would be liable for several hundreds of thousands of dollars of damages.

So.... There's that.  The legal system sucks.

I had a little neighborhood gaggle of kids like that back when I worked the overnight shift. I would desperately be trying to sleep around sundown and those monsters would play outside my damned window, because apparently that was the most awesome spot they could find on the block. Never thought to shoot them with a BB gun but I did yell at them to get offa my damn yard a few times.

and then the ice cream truck would arrive...
