Man Arrested For Allegedly Shooting Realistic Toy Gun With Kids In Queens Park

Quote:Calas called police, who arrived after Pawlowski left. She also called City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-22nd) and posted the photo on her “queensmamas” website.

That led to a tip that led investigators straight to Pawlowski’s door.

“This is really a way to educate people,” Vallone said. “You cannot run around with a realistic looking gun. It’s against the law, and you could get arrested and actually go to jail.”


He remained in custody Wednesday evening, on charges of reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a minor, resisting arrest, and possession of an illegal BB gun.
When I was a kid in the early 80's, I used to run around with my cap gun in a holster (sometimes "loaded" :O) in stores while my mom was shopping at the grocery store or where-ever. I remember on at least one occasion I "shot" a random store patron who smiled and faked falling back. I never caused a mass panic, it was never a problem...

Why was I able to do this without it making the 6 o'clock news and causing a visit to the Pathmark from the SWAT team....?

Because people had common fucking sense back then! and there was no such thing as "zero tolerance" anything. People knew that zero tolerance policies are the enemy of common sense. People knew the sight of a toy gun was not cause for a school wide lockdown costing thousands of dollars for the police to stand around in a parking lot shaking in their boots wondering what is going on inside the school. I've said it a million times, but common sense is becoming shockingly less common every day. The pathetic society we live in today where the moment anyone witnesses a weapon of any kind they run screaming to the nearest government agent for protection against the child with a toy gun makes me physically ill. I shudder to think of the country that will exist when generation "Z" gets in public office... They've already been brainwashed to the point it is absolutely horrifying to watch instances like these become increasingly ridiculous and more and more common.

Reckless endangerment? Only in a progressive shit hole can you be charged with recklessly endangering someone, without actually endangering anyone.

Brandishing a plastic gun? Some ninny calling the cops, and a councilman?

Bitch needs a hobby.

Is it time to take the country back from idiots yet? Because this stuff is getting downright stupid now.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
Liberals like to embrace the "Zero Tolerance" policy b/c it doesn't require them to use any logic in their decision making. Removing the thought process when analyzing a situation keeps their heads from exploding.
You would hope that one of these days they would arrest someone for something like this that had the money and the will to fight back.

When did BB guns become toys?

Eh, In my house I had a BB gun from the time I was like 8 or 9 at that point I wasn't allowed to use it without my parent's supervision. When I got to be in my early teens I used to use it to exterminate pigeons from my grandparents barn for hours with my best friend unsupervised :O. Nobody put an eye out, or was harmed. A BB gun is obviously not a toy, but there does come a point where I think a kid can use a BB gun for entertainment alone and without consequences. Namely, when they are old enough to fully grasp the 4 rules and enforce those rules when around their friends like I did. It's not a toy, but its pretty darn close. On the other hand I would consider those .22 1000+ FPS pellet guns every bit as dangerous and deadly as a standard .22. Most of the time if you get hit by a BB it's going to embed itself about 1/8th" and leave a teacup sized bruise.
