    As a vet myself I agree with your statement. A threat with a weapon is a threat......despite the age.

    Yep, I would drop him.

    That was horrible! How could it be like that?! But like other people said, a threat with a weapon is a threat not matter what.

    Unfortunately, this will just give him bragging rights and the little turd will probably kill someone in the next few years.

    With age comes, for most of us, maturity and a change in the thought processes. At ten years of age one does not think in abstract like an adult should be capable of.

    Now, with that said, I'm just sorry the little FFA member isn't DOA. I see no good outcome from this and as a life this child is a waste.

    This is a trick question, right?
    Try robbing me as a 10-14 year old, and you may miss the chance to get your driver's license.
    A little dirtbag with a gun and a gang (as stated in the article) is as capable of killing you as a seasoned criminal. If fact, many times it's the younger dirtbag who have less trouble shooting you for a dollar.OMO

    Agreed. When I got home last night, I described this scenario to my wife and asked her if she'd draw and shoot him. Her reply was immediately a shocked 'No!' (she's an anti anyway btw). Then I asked her who would be more likely to shoot her, a grown man or a 10 year old. Her eyes got real big and she said 'you have to shoot him, don't you?'. Bingo.

    Now for the rub. I'm not sure I'd practice what I preach, and I'm not saying that this is a safe or appropriate response; If he's within reach and depending on the situation, I can likely disable a 10 year old as quick as I can draw. Right or not, I'm not looking to carry killing a kid on my conscience for the rest of my life. I already have enough nightmares. However, if I didn't have some level of confidence on a non-lethal response, BANG BANG.

    i think the initial reaction is from people who think you should just scold them and put em over your knee for a good old fashioned spanking...the part they dont think through is that you have to get the gun away from them in order to do that...simple really...shoot em...

    I'm sure he has some real good role models in his life. He and his dad probably sat around all summer playing Grand Theft Auto on the Play Station.

    Some people cannot accept that our society can produce ten year olds that will kill you for the price of a soda.
