arma virumque cano (et alia)
If the ATT (U.N. Arms Trade Treaty) had been passed as originally intended in 2004, then the father would have never obtained this Tokarev-33, and presumably the crime may not have occurred. No longer may "Americans" believe that the international arms trade only affects those in poorer countries.
That would be because we don't make any guns here?
The Tula Tokarev-33 has no safety. If they had one, it may have been engaged. Also, American weaponry is far less reliable, presumably to compensate for the idiocy of the user.
American weaponry is far less reliable? I take it that you're unaware that the Tokarev is largely a copy of our M1911--without the American gun's safeties. In 7.62 x 25, I favor the CZ vz. 52.
This was an epic fail on the part of the adult who owned the firearm. I think involuntary manslaughter charges are in order.If you own firearms and children are EVER in your home, you must keep them absolutely inaccessible to children.
Charge the fucker and put him in jail. The morons who own guns are too stupid to be free.
