    11 year old boy shoots uninvited bear

    A good reason why everyone who is willing should be taught to shoot. You never know who the home invader will be.

    I would have preferred him to stay inside and call the cops,while arming himself in case the bear broke into the house,by opening the door he may of presented an opportunity to be attacked,I wasn't there so I don't know where he fired from or the distance

    I was gonna post this story yesterday, but I originally saw it on Huffington Post and I was going to post the absolutely insane rantings of their anti-gun membership... it was amazing to read. The comments went something like this...


    "What was an 11 year old child be doing in a house in remote Idaho without parental supervision? His parents should be arrested!"

    "What was an 11 year old doing alone in a house with a gun???"

    "Amazing... another budding Columbine kid, courtesy of the 2nd amendment."

    "Why didn't this kid latch the screen door and call a cop?"

    "The bear would not have been there had man not invaded his territory, destroyed his natural environment and forced this poor creature to scavenge from trash cans for his very survival. I feel sorry for the bear."

    "This easy availability and access to guns is what caused the Fort Hood shootings."

    "Guns make people mean and heartless because they make it so easy to kill another living creature with the click of a trigger, including innocent people. Ban all guns now!"



    Now, I'm paraphrasing this stuff, just because I'm too busy to go copy accurate quotes, but trust me, this is representative of what the anti-2A people think...

    Just don't understand the thought process that leads a person there...
    "Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"

    There is nothing wrong with a child being able to shoot a firearm, or having access to a gun in such an environemnt provided they have proven themselves to have the maturity for the responsibility they are afforded. Please do not impose your standards of civilization upon those of us that choose not to live in a more metropolitan area.

    In my humble opinion, this young man did the right thing and stood as a man in a time of trial. No higher compliment can be paid to him. "

    These posts are right off Democratic Underground

    The bear was not threatening...just call the park service/rangers and they can remove it...no need for this senseless killing...

    God, how easily you all justify your bloodthirsty natures.


    In the end, however, it's a shame that people are invading the bear's space forcing them to come into somebody's house.

    I couldn't agree more...let's hear it for the kid.
    Now for the bear on the porch...

    Where this family lives is just about 40 miles from me. I've been over there a lot and the response time for LEO is not always the greatest.

    The kid did the right thing as far as not waiting for LEO or Fish & Game black bears can get really nasty. When a black bear will usually run once it ids a human, with this one sticking around it was very likely it would have attacked...when a black bear attacks it does so to kill, where as the Grizzle will do so only till the threat stops.

    so in the end you have 2 young kids home alone, most likely long response time, and a bear behaving unusually.

    I was expecting a naked pervert thread. It was the whole no pants thing.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I was expecting an attacker in a dress, or mini-skirt.
