It is the responsibility of parents to raise their child NOT to have any type of gun, including a BB pistol. I raised 2 boys and when they were 14, no way would I ever have allowed them to have a BB pistol.

Guns in all shapes and forms are to be respected and taught how to use them by an adult - when the child is legally old enough to fire one.

Someone gave my 3 year old Grandson a toy rifle with plastic "bullets" for Christmas. He did what every 3 year old boy would do - he pointed it at people and said "Bang, Bang - I shot you".

This gun was then taken away from him after he was told "You NEVER, NEVER point a gun at anyone". He never even cried as I think he understood what he did was wrong. The "gun" will be returned to him when he gets much older and when he fully understands that even toy guns can be dangerous.

Parents need to know what possessions their kids have. IMO - a child living in YOUR house does NOT have any privacy and ALL parents should know exactly what they have "hidden" on them or in their bedrooms.
