The Right to Bear BB Guns


A 9-year-old Atlanta boy has been suspended for bringing a gun to school in his backpack.
Third-grade students at Sarah Smith Intermediate School told their teacher about the weapon, Keith Bromery, spokesman for Atlanta Public Schools, told the AJC. The teacher then confronted the boy and searched his backpack, where the gun was located.
The weapon, believed to be a BB gun or air pistol, was not loaded, Bromery said.

What is the minimum age requirement to qualify for the freedoms mentioned in the 2nd Amendment or any other Amendment of our Constitution?

If certifiable nuts are allowed to exercised their 2nd amendment rights surely a 9 old boy should be allowed the same privilege.

Schools have been illegal for nearly 2 decades when it comes to ANY firearms:

One could argue that a BB gun or air pistol don't meet the strict definition of "Firearm" (the vast majority don't), but that doesn't make it right. The kids parents should be the ones taking the brunt of the punishment for not instilling the importance of safety when it comes to firearms to their child. I knew not to take my BB gun off our property (or shoot off our property) by the time I was 8 thanks to instruction from my father. 30 years later I'm still a responsible firearm owner and now instructing others on safety, responsibility and proficiency.

I was actually making fun of the system. You said you are responsible - I was referring to the irresponsible nut in Arizona.
