This is Arizona; if anything happens to the kid or parents, it will be either a medal, a commendation, or they'll name a holiday after them. We're allowed to defend ourselves and raise our children our way out here.
When i was 14, i had a rifle rack and a 12 gauge in the truck that I drove without a license on the country roads, and the sheriff didn't give two licks. Imagine how that would go over today in say, California. Someone would be doing life over it i'm sure
