Remember the kid that wanted the red rider BB gun…. “Forget it kid you’ll get shot by the police” (forget the eye). Police are trying justifying a police officer shooting a 13 year old boy with an airsoft gun. The officer though it was an AK -47 and fired the fatal shot.
So what better way than to dig up an “obscure Petaluma Municipal Code 10.56 outlaws the discharge or public display of any firearms — including airsoft and BB guns — within city limits.”
Sounds like a win-win for the police, justifies the shooting and kills any chance of a wrongful death law suit
Quoted: Mayor David Glass said he supports any law aimed at reducing the damage done by firearms — real or fake. (can we say CYA)
