Why would a guy use children to shoot a gun?

But I don’t want to be traumatized by the sight of a slightly gunlike shape.

“I mean, he’s brandishing a firearm and I don’t care if that firearm is plastic. That’s unacceptable.”

No wonder Nanny Bloomberg is mayor of NYC.

Meanwhile she's probably chill with faggots waving dildos and the real thing in civic celebrated gay pride parades.

Another successfully brainwashed soccer mom. She will pass her newly learned ideology on to her progeny and the cycle will be complete.

If you even whisper “gun” in NYC they go into lockdown mode and activate SWAT teams.

“I don’t tend to take things lying down...and so I walked straight over and I confronted him,” said Leni Calas. “I mean, he’s brandishing a firearm and I don’t care if that firearm is plastic. That’s unacceptable.”

God save us from these ignorant, absolutely crazy and insanely foolish people.

It's a TOY for God's sake. It will not hurt anyone.

Seriously a toy gun gets a man arrested?

Kids get to watch Daddy get stuffed into a squad car for this?

Really?

Can’t imagine calling NYC home.

God save us from self-important a$$-holes. “I hope he learns” was repeated by several of the people interviewed.

My question is - if they were so scared by this realistic looking firearm simulant, why didn’t they grab their kids and run screaming from the park? If they truly thought it was a real firearm, they should be arrested for endangering their own kids by allowing them to stay in the park where someone was waving a “gun” all over the place.

Journalists are the worst people in the world at their own profession. Is haveing a toy gun illegal in NYC or not? Never once is this clarified in the article. The fact that a Jackboot they interviewed stated that the peon was taught a lesson has nothing to do with whether or not something is actually illegal.

To: Maelstorm; All

Reminds me of the time, as a young man, that I was pulled over in my ‘64 Skylark convertible for a taillight being out at 1:30am on the way home from the recording studio.

Young kid, with a shaved head, driving an older car with a loose electrical connection to the taillight socket, at 1:30am.... COP MAGNET.

Cops hauled me out of car, hands on the hood treatment while they searched the car... along with the drum kit in the back seat they took offense to the baseball bat and glove and requested I keep that in the trunk.

Then with the whole drumkit pulled out on the side of the road, bat and glove secured in trunk... the cop held up one of the boomerangs I had in the back seat as well (I had a collection of about 9 different boomerangs all of various design and flight characteristics). The cop asked me if I knew how to “use” the boomerang as he held it up, and I said I did... and immediately he says, “Well, since you know how to use this, it could be used as a weapon against an officer of the law. You should secure these in your trunk as well.”

I felt like saying, “Excuse me officers, can you please go stand 30 to 40 yards down the road so I can get a clean shot at you both with my boomerang?”

Instead, I put it in the trunk, jiggled the wire and the taillight came back on, and was on my way home with a warning... an hour and a half later, getting back home at about 3:45am. Oh, and I had to be up at 5am to shovel coal into a steam locomotive’s firebox all day...

Ah to be 20 again... the things I would do differently... like saying, “No you will NOT search my vehicle without a search warrant signed by a judge, you effing fascist”.

I mean, when I was 20, I didn’t drink or smoke or do drugs or ogle slutty women or nothing... I was just a kid... a good kid that played softball on Sundays, helped out friends in a band, and threw boomerangs around out in the middle of a field for fun... when I wasn’t busting my ass working on the railroad for $8/hr.

****Smilios saw the toy up close, and at first thought it was the real thing. She gave CBS 2 a cellphone photo she said shows Pawlowski firing pellets at a tree.

“The next thing, he took his son, who is 3, and showed him how to use it, and then the family took turns shooting the gun. He gave it to his daughter, who took off on the bicycle and started racing around the park with the gun pointing this way and just started pointing it at the kids,” Smilios said. ****
