Bill Cosby Calls for Strict Gun-Control

By Roy Denish

Hard on the heels of a black teenager’s death by the self-appointed security chief of a neighborhood watch in Florida, the veteran comedian “dad,” Bill Cosby, urged authorities to enforce stricter gun control in the nation.

“The guns have to be off the streets,” Cosby, blaming the death of Travyon Martin on the prevalence of guns, told the cable news network, CNN last week. The call comes at the same time that a Las Vegas entertainment company called “Machine Guns Vegas,” is embroiled in controversy because they permitted a seven-year old child to target practice with a German-built assault rifle, the HK416, the same weapon believed to have been used by U.S. special forces to assassinate the master-mind of the 9/11 attacks, Bin Laden.

Machine Guns Vegas’s granting permission to the unidentified seven year old received mixed reactions by mothers in a popular forum named Café-Mom.

The incident follows the death of an eight-year-old child who accidentally shot himself to death with an Israeli made UZI assault rifle, at a shooting range in Westfield, Massachusetts.

The Guardian Express carried an exhaustive report on these subjects last week under the banner headline “Should Children Handle Guns.”

    First, giving a child a mindset of protection is what I’m giving my son when I take him shooting. It is a dangerous world out there and my son will be prepaired. Second, only 2 people in the world know what happened between Trayvon and Zimmerman so all you “lawyers” and witnesses should go help with the case. Personally I don’t think God wanted Zimmerman to die either. If guns were prohibited murderers would kill you with a knife, bat, broken bottle, you fill in the blank. We continue to accept the gun play because we have a Constitutionally protected right to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS! Why does everybody hang on the words of Hollywood? Most of these people couldn’t beat a sock in a spelling contest. Get a life people!

    Honestly people make rights of wrongs. No a child shouldn’t be aloud to participate in any kinda gun related activities. Why give a seven year old a gun and say shoot. At that age that child should be somewhere in school. I don’t think toy guns should be sold in stores. Why give a child the mind state that killing is okay. Video games are graffic enough and yet you place a kid a gun and say shoot. It should be prohibited for any resident of the United States to carry guns anywhere besides hunting. Our world is a dangerous world its been traded in to a free gun world. I think when we demanded freedom we demaned too much freedom. If gun was prohibited maybe innocent souls wouldn’t be killed..
    Cause I don’t think God wanted him to die like that. Trayvon Martin life was stole by a gun. Why continue to accept the gun play??
