You need to listen to this BBC interview about children getting firearms licenses in the UK. The argument goes something like this.
“Something MUST be done!!! Kids! With GUNZ! OMG!!!”
“Someone tell this clown to get a grip.”
And it all happens on BBC with a presenter who is sympathetic to the gun rights argument.
While you are at it, read this article on kids in (Formerly Great) Britain and the experience with firearms licensing.
Police revoked just two shotgun certificates given to children in the past decade, according to the Countryside Alliance.
The campaign group released the figures as MPs prepare to debate whether to introduce a minimum age of 14 for holding a shotgun certificate.
There is currently no minimum age for qualifying, but an anti-gun group said under-18s should not get certificates.
According to the person interviewed on the first link, neither of the two revocations had anything to do with anything the kids did with their firearms.
