10 Month Old Baby Granted Gun Permit
In Chicago, the police department granted a gun permit to a 10 month old baby for an assault rifle. The father of the baby submitted all the required paperwork on behalf of the baby including a photo of the baby for the gun permit card. After a background check, in which Chicage police found no criminal or mental illness history on the part of the baby, a gun permit and ID card was issued.
When a baby only a few months old can be granted a gun permit to own an assault rifle, and the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech took place because a seriously mentally ill man was able to acquire handguns, then there should be good questions whether the gun laws are so lax that some unfit persons or those that lack good judgement are finding it just too easy to acquire dangerous weapons.
