future Republicans no doubt.....I wonder if the NRA will come out of the woodwork and defend them..........I mean the NRA doesn't care what the weapon is, just that everyone should have one and be allowed to use it at their free will!

Can't wait for all the punks' illiterate friends to come over here to praise them as "good kids" and accuse us of not remembering our crime-filled teen years.

Yeah, I'd blame the NRA too, instead of the parents who should have known what their children had possession of especially on Halloween. Of course shooting at a police car demonstrates the smart genes passed on by these same parents.

I don't know about anyone else but I don't remember at that age even THINKING about shooting up police cars-even with paintballs, or bibis, or eggs, or rocks. If the cops didn't scare the crap out of us enough, our parents were scarier. What is this world coming to?

Better future NRA members than future demoncrats that will give our country to any othe country after taking the guns out of law abiding citizens hands so only criminals have them.

Was it the right thing for these punks to do this? Heck no. But to draw a comparison to this and law abiding citizens exercising their constitutionally guaranteed right to bear arms is infantile.

Future democrats no doubt... An NRA member is trained on how to use and respect firearms and certainly would not shoot any kind of gun at a police cruiser. Sounds like they were emulating their rapstar gansta rap heroes. What was that rap tune called? Oh year Kop Killaz.
