    Watch out if your kids have BB guns

    By Jeff Robinson
    Chubbuck police say parents need to watch what their kids are doing with BB guns.

    Last night, a resident at Pheasant Ridge called police, reporting that a female was hiding in some bushes with a gun.

    When police responded, they found three teens shooting each other with air rifles.

    "It is a violation of the city ordinance, which a lot of people aren't aware. Anything that shoots any type of projectile, whether it's an airsoft gun, a BB gun or a slingshot, anything of that nature is illegal within the city limits," said Lt. Bill Guiberson.

    The teens will now all face misdemeanor charges.

    An officer says they've been in trouble with police before.

    "An officer says they've been in trouble with police before."

    I'll venture thier parents nither know nor care what thier kids are up to and don't even know the 4 universal rules that (I'll venture) we know, follow, and TEACH to our own children.

    Same here. We used to have bb gun wars in the woods before we discovered paint ball. We just had rules. No headshots. No crown jewel shots. No pumping more than 2 with a rifle and unlimited pumping with pistol. No shots towards or within 50 yards of a house.

    Granted we weren't the brightest bulbs, but no one ever got hurt and we never popped anyone's windows.

    Never would have thought we'd go to jail for it today!

    Same here!! And we had bull nettle fights too! And they hurt a lot more!! Makes me shiver all over to think of it. I'm glad we didn't have computers back then. We learned a lot about life and its' circumstances.
    And when we screwed up, our neighbors whipped our butts and then told our folks and we got twice as much at home.
    Life was carefree and fun then and our parents didn't get filed on for "child endangerment" when we drank out of the water hose in the front yard. When is the stupidity going to end?

    If they only knew what we used to do... We had massive bottle rocket wars, BB gun fights and combo wars. It was a ton of fun, but I think I would blow a gasket if I caught my kid doing the same. But I guess thats the difference, I'm a dad who is not afraid to be a dad... to many are not around or they are wuss's who want to be their kids best friend instead of a father.

    There was a kid in my school that lost an eye in a BB gun war so it does happen. One war we had there was no shooting at the head but one boy got hit in the mouth but spit the BB out and kept on shooting.

    Ah, the good old days, BB gun battles, and bottle rockets were the best, we'd spend all afternoon taping up bottle rocket combo's, then smoke up the back yard so bad, we couldn't see the house 50' away.

    Now that's funny.
