A 12 year old kid in Moscow Russia shot a family friend negligently at a shooting range:

At some point, the child apparently jokingly took aim at the people in front of him, and pulled the trigger, fatally hitting the family friend in the head and killing him instantly.  While police acknowledge the boy is also at fault for playing around with the loaded weapon, charges are expected to be laid against the instructor for not ensuring the rifle was empty at the time.

shooting-targetNOT cool.  Poor kid, I don’t blame him at all… this is 100% the stupidity of the parental supervision that caused this to happen.  Wtf… “police acknowledge the boy is at fault for playing around with the loaded weapon”?  So police think a 12 year old, or anyone at any age should automatically know that a gun is loaded, and know proper range etiquette?  That’s pretty weak they put any blame at all on the kid, unless it could be proven he had tons of experience with firearms and knew that particular one like the back of his hand.

Thoughts?

A politically-loaded experiment involving a man walking through central Moscow with a replica of an AK-74 assault rifle has hit the Russian blogs. Not a single police officer reportedly stopped or questioned him.

Pavel Tarasov, apparently armed with an openly displayed automatic weapon, strolled through central Moscow, while Vadim Tsibankov took photos of him standing right next to police officers. Vadim describes the experience in a report which is currently top of the Russian blogosphere.

In Soviet Russia, replica AK muzzle sweeps EVERYONE!

From what I can gather, open carry isn’t legal in Russia, so the fact no one batted an eyelash is interesting.  If you ask me, that’s the way it should be though.  The guy was just chilling with his buddies by the look of it, so even if it was real a real firearm, he obviously wasn’t a threat.  I’m so sick of the “only police should carry guns” mentality.  Thankfully even the people in the US that believe that nonsense still have to put up with a growing number part of the population that can’t afford armed security 24/7 so they decide to protect themselves.

The spy oxygen thief herself at Moscow’s fashion week:

I absolutely DESPISE this chick… as far as I’m concerned she basically embodies the Russian equivalent of Jersey Shore.

She should have done some spying on how to properly respect a gun when she was in the U.S. Smooth work on dropping it at the starting of the video too *facepalm*

Success on the title btw! .. I’ve been wanting to use the word Tomfoolery for a while.
