BB guns are weapons that can lead to serious personal injuries and wrongful death. BB guns and toy guns are especially dangerous when others believe that BB guns are high powered fire arms. Parents should keep in mind that a weapon is a weapon. This advice applies to BB guns. Parents and caregivers should supervise their children any time that children use a BB gun.
In Salem, New Hampshire, an 11 year old boy bought a BB gun at a flea market. He subsequently brought the BB gun to school and shot some classmates. An investigation is under way to see how the 11 year old was able to purchase the gun from the vendor at the flea market. It appears if the 11 year was the actual purchaser for the BBI gun without his parents – then the vendor may end up facing criminal charges in New Hampshire.
