Two Oregon boys, ages 7 and 11, are accused of trying to rob a woman with a loaded gun, police said Sunday. The boys tried to carjack a 22-year-old woman who was in her family's truck waiting for her parents in a church parking lot, Portland police said in a statement.This is exactly the gun culture that Costas and Whitlock were talking about. The feckless investigators seem to be baffled as to how an 11-year-old could get a gun. A lengthy and complicated investigation is in order.
Ami Garrett, of southeast Portland, told officers that when the boys approached her, the younger boy told the older boy to “show her your piece.”
The woman said that when she refused to give them her vehicle, they demanded cash and her phone. She said that as she drove away, she saw the 11-year-old boy pull a gun from his pocket.
The boys were apprehended in the parking lot by officers responding to reports of children with guns. Police said they recovered a loaded .22 caliber handgun from the older boy's pockets.
Detectives were investigating how the boys obtained a gun.
Of course, if we had licensing of gun owners and registration of guns it would take less than a minute to determine the gun belongs to daddy. As it is, it would take all of ten minutes to determine that. Let's see how the "investigation" pans out.
