    It's illegal to give a gun to a kid...  Unless their parents say its cool.

    I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

    •  Still looks like that only covers handguns (3+ / 0-)

      I'm pretty sure that's from a section of 18 USC §922 that covers minors with handguns.

      (x) (1) It shall be unlawful for a person to
      sell, deliver, or otherwise transfer to a
      person who the transferor knows or has
      reasonable cause to believe is a juvenile—
      (A) a handgun; or
      (B) ammunition that is suitable for
      use only in a handgun.

      (2) It shall be unlawful for any person
      who is a juvenile to knowingly possess—
      (A) a handgun; or
      (B) ammunition that is suitable for
      use only in a handgun.

      The Crickett is not, as best I can tell, covered by that statutory language.
