A disturbing online video shows a young boy being trained to fire a Rocket Propelled Grenade along a beach.
The video shows two adults with the child at the empty beach in Libya, according to the LiveLeak member that posted it.
The dangerous weapon is taller than the kid is but after some guidance and encouragement the little boy is left alone to point it towards the water.
After a few moments he does fire and appears unconcerned with the noise or the smoke that gathers all over him.
The man standing nonchalantly behind him then cheers and gives him a kiss.
You tell me that you wouldn’t like to fire an RPG.
It is just a father/son thing.
Your family didn't teach you how to shoot?
Who hasn’t taught their child how to fire a weapon?
In a sane country, you’d be right.
This is Libya, so I’m not sure.
If I told my oldest daughter we were going to fire a grenade launcher, she'd be very willing, and also would want to bring her friends.
My kid’s dying to shoot an RPG!
Beats the hell out of Xbox simulations...
“the man standing nonchalantly behind him.........”
Obviously not directly behind him.
This is just further proof that fun-loving rednecks are everywhere.
Imagine what these Democrats would say about Camp Perry, Ohio, this week? It’s only a matter of scale...
If my family had an RPG we’d teach our kids to use it. I’m just not seeing the problem here. Especially for a family that lives in a hellhole like Libya where knowing how to fire an RPG can be the difference between life, death, or even slavery.
Looks like an endearing father/son experience to me.
The only reason my kid doesn’t know how to fire an RPG is I don’t have a stockpile of RPGs in the gun safe.
(It would have to be a really, really big gun safe...)
Our kids are punished for chewing a pop tart the wrong way. Who do you think would win in a war?
If you don’t teach you kid about RPGs, they are just going to pick it up in the schoolyard...
I remember being taught to throw a baseball at the age of seven.It wasn’t till I was nineteen that I was taught to throw a hand grenade at Ft Knox.
Wait till Bloomberg see’s this.
We have got to close the RPG loop hole.
When children have RPGs no ice cream truck will be safe.
