Boy accused of hitting mom with airsoft gun

Source: http://www.oregonnews.com/article/20.../NEWS/70618047

June 18, 2007

TRI CITY: A 13-year-old boy was arrested Sunday after allegedly shooting his mother with an airsoft gun at a Tri City home.

The incident occurred shortly before 8 p.m. at a home on Hill Street after the boy’s father dropped him off to visit his mother, according to a court affidavit filed by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

The boy and his mother reportedly started to argue and the boy pulled out the gun, a replica of a Smith & Wesson 1911 pistol.

Airsoft guns are typically plastic, spring-loaded replicas that propel hard plastic pellets. They can cause serious injury if the pellet hits someone in the eye, according to the affidavit.

As the two were fighting, the boy allegedly shot his mother once in the cheek and once in the left arm from about 10 to 15 feet away, leaving small welts.

Police were called and the boy was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, recklessly endangering and harassment. He was lodged at the Douglas County Juvenile Detention Center.

They don't care what it is exacly. All they know is it's a gun that shoot plastic BBs. They would not know the difference between airsoft and softair.

Like any non airsofter knows the difference?

Who cares, its not like we have any control over thease silly people anyway. Keep playing and ignore thease reports like every other normal non airosft player person out there. Sorry, but there are so many of thease threads and no solutions. So why waste your time on thease reports.

And in Oregon they don't particularly give a shit. You'll notice the article didn't have any of the anti-gun slant you'd have seen here or in an anti-gun state like New York, and the kid wasn't charged with any weapons offences, apart from the suspicion of second-degree assault (requires a dangerous or deadly weapon).

The fact that it's "suspicion of" may mean there's doubt as to whether he actually did what is claimed. At least in my interpretation. LD?

Ya, but like I said in another thread, the mom, when in doubt had better call herself out godammit.

... The solution is clearly to outlaw airsoft, that way he would have hit her with a crowbar or something.

I must agree the article was quite neutral at least

Who the fuck sends their own kid to jail? I don't mean to bring out the Stereotype Textbook, but I bet the kid will get sued by his parents...because in America you get sued for EVERYTHING.

"You stepped on my sidewalk, give me $500 000 000! Or I'll send your ass to hell and back again!"

"You threatened me, I'm gonna sue you back for $600 000 000!"

"I saw this sue-fest between two men on the street, I was emotionally damaged by it all, I'm going to sue them both for $700 000 000"

"Someone made reference to a "fest" which brought back old memories of an orgy I once attended in college, I'm suing them for everything they've got!"

"I never attended college, you are getting sued!"

"I'm not getting anything, and I have nothing to do with this argument, but I'm going to sue you anyways!"

Fucking people these days...

on a lighter note: this kid should have his airsoft/clearsoft taken away and be grounded for a month.
