    kid went for the gun in his waistband, it's clear in the video. Remember, you have the rest of your life to win a gunfight.

    From the video that I saw, there was absolutely no discussion whatsoever.

    Re: The next Ferguson ?

    This is really a tragic story and I noticed the article didn't say how many rounds were fired at the boy.

    While there are legal ways to rationalize a justification for the officer shooting, still, I don't like it. A lot. In the past, basically every boy played with toy guns outside and none had red tips. Hell, a red tip doesn't even mean it's fake. Why were those kids of generations past routinely gunned down then too? Something's very wrong with that happening.

    When are schools going to start teaching kids the reality that if they are not conditioned to do EXACTLY and INSTANTLY anything anyone who says they are police or look like might be police they might get immediately gunned down or beaten to death for resisting?

    So? The gun exists, it's out there, it could have been a real gun.

    How many people live in your head? That's what I've been saying, and what you've been arguing against.

    Every Colt Rail I have seen so far has been stainless steel.

    How about just some common sense for the kids, that they may pass on to their parents.
