When Ames Mayfields Cub Scout den met with a Colorado state senator last week, the 11-year-old came prepared with a long list of typed-up questions.
Ames pressed the Republican state senator, Vicki Marble, on an issue he knew was important to her: gun legislation. The Cub Scout in Broomfield, about 20 miles north of Denver, asked her a slew of questions about previous bills she had sponsored in support of the right to bear arms, and he wasnt shy about inserting his opinion.
I was shocked that you co-sponsored a bill to allow domestic violence offenders to continue to own a gun, Ames said, according to a video posted to YouTube by his mother. Why on earth would you want someone who beats their wife to have access to a gun?
After Amess questions went on for more than two minutes, a leader in his group cut him off to allow the state senator to answer.

Too bad, but I don't think the scouts are obligated to let him spread propaganda at their meetings.
The kid was disrespectful to an elected leader. That’s not proper civics nor is it proper manners.
“After Amess questions went on for more than two minutes, a leader in his group cut him off to allow the state senator to answer.”
The kid just wanted to go on with his propaganda, not really asking a question.
Glad to hear it! I hope that Scumbag got booted right through the Uprights!
The kids parent’s are cowards for sending a child to do their bidding.
Somebody else wrote that list and put him up to it.
The coat hanger embedded in his head burns.
I guess the Kid wasn’t taught that in the United States of America you are Innocent until PROVEN Guilty.
Being “accused” of Domestic Violence is NOT the same as being Convicted of Domestic Violence. If there enough Proof presented in a preliminary Trial, it’s a different story.
Under these Gun Control Laws, the mere accusation is enough to deny you your God Given Constitutional Rights. A pissed off Girlfriend, Wife (or both) lying through their teeth is all it takes.
I’ve watched enough Judge Judy Shows to know SOMEBODY is lying. LOL
What’s an 11-year-old doing in the Cub Scouts? He should already be in a Boy Scout Troop.
“Shall not be infringed, unless you hit you wife”?
The wife beater keeps his right to free speech as well, kid.
Now, now... he also has the right to be in a Girl Scout Troop.
Mom’s next step no doubt is to hire a lawyer.
There’s no difference any more.
I got kicked out of the Boy Scouts too.
For eating brownies.
Strangely, much of what appeared in South Park cartoons is true. There’s quite a mix of cultures there.
Not really he is right on schedule.
Cub Scouts go from 6 to 11 years old.
They have six ranks from Bobcat to Arrow of Light.
He is likely Webelos II/Arrow of Light level, on the older side. They start at 10 usually (5th grade) but could turn 11 during that season.
Shall not be infringed, unless someone accuses you of hitting you wife
