Iowa Law Lets Kids Have Handguns


UP UNTIL
THIS WEEK, CHILDREN UNDER 14 COULD NOT HANDLE HANDGUNS, BUT
REPUBLICANS TOOK CARE OF THAT AND NOW THEY WILL BE ABLE TO
WITH NO AGE LIMIT –>>IF YOU ARE ONE IF YOUR PARENTS
ARE THERE YOU CAN HANDLE A HANDGUN AND IOWA. DOING THE GREAT WORK THEY WERE
ELECTED TO DO.>>TO BE FAIR, THE ONLY THING
THAT STOPS A BAD TODDLER WITH A GUN IS A GOOD TODDLER WITH A
GUN.>>THEY HAVE OBVIOUSLY HAD SOME
PUSHBACK AGAINST THIS, BECAUSE IT SEEMS INSANE. JACK HIGHFILL,
ONE OF THE REPUBLICANS WHO SUPPORTS THIS, SAYS –>>IS POINT IS THAT THERE NEEDS
TO BE CONSISTENCY IN THE LAWS, SO IF YOU ARE GOING TO ALLOW
FIVE OR SIX-YEAR-OLDS TO USE SHOTGUNS AND RIFLES, YOU HAVE TO
ALSO ALLOW THEM TO USE HANDGUNS, BECAUSE THEY ARE FOR LOGICAL
CONSISTENCY IN LEGISLATION. FIRST OF ALL, THAT IS CRAZY.
SECOND OF ALL, THERE IS A GOOD REASON WHY THEORETICALLY YOU
MIGHT LET THEM USE A RIFLE, BUT NOT A HANDGUN, BECAUSE KIDS TEND
TO BE SMALL. IT IS REALLY DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO PULL THE
TRIGGER ON A 3 1/2 FOOT RIFLE AND SHOOT THEMSELVES. MUCH
EASIER WITH A GLOCK. THEY DON’T MAKE HANDGUNS FOR CHILDREN.
THESE CHILDREN WILL EXCLUSIVELY BE USING HANDGUNS SIGNED WITH
RECOIL THAT ADULT MUSCLES ARE SUPPOSED TO CONTROL. BUT THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH
FIVE AND SIX-YEAR-OLDS USING THESE HANDGUNS.>>LOOK AT THE INSANE
CONVERSATION WE’RE HAVING. SHOULD WE ALLOWED FIVE-YEAR-OLDS
TO USE RIFLES OR HANDGUNS? WELL, IF WE ARE LETTING THEM USE —
NO, WE SHOULD NOT LET THEM USE RIFLES EITHER. LOOK, IT
PHYSICALLY PAINS ME TO THINK OF WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THEIR
KIDS. I’M NOT GOING TO HAVE THEM NEAR MY KIDS. WE ARE NOT GOING
TO HANDGUNS, RIFLES, I WON’T HAVE MY THREE OR MY
FIVE-YEAR-OLD HANDLE THEM BECAUSE I’M NOT A LUNATIC. AND
IF YOU ARE THAT STUPID — I KNOW GUN SAFETY, I WILL TEACH MY 2
1/2-YEAR-OLD GUN SAFETY. YOUR TO A NATURAL DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO
SPEAK ENGLISH, LET ALONE HANDLE A GUN. NOW YOU WILL SAY, TO BE
FAIR, WE SHOULD LET THE BABIES AND THE WEAPONRY, RIGHT? TO BE
FAIR?>>WE HAVE TO BE FAIR TO THE
CHILDREN.>>WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? WE
ARE DESPERATELY TRYING TO HELP YOU, RIGHT? DON’T DO THIS, YOU
WILL GET YOUR KIDS KILLED OR YOURSELF KILLED WHEN THEY ARE
LIKE, DADDY, WHAT IS THIS? WE ARE TRYING TO HELP YOU. IT IS
NOT IN MY HOUSE, IT DOESN’T HURT ME, IT HURTS YOU. BUT NO,
LIBERAL, TRYING TO MAKE SURE MY KIDS DOESN’T BLOW HIS HEAD OFF.
DO-GOODER. OKAY, FINE.>>WHAT IF THAT KID IS THE LAST
LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST ISIS.>>AND MARCO RUBIO IS NOT AROUND.>>I LOOKED UP, THEY ARE NOT
ALLOWED TO USE GRENADE LAUNCHERS. WHAT THE FUCK HAS
HAPPENED TO THIS COUNTRY?>>I REMEMBER WHEN WE USED TO BE
FREE.>>IF I WANT MY SIX-YEAR-OLD TO
USE A FLAMETHROWER I SHOULD BE ABLE TO, BECAUSE THAT IS
‘MURRICA.>>IF THIS IS ALL ABOUT
SELF-DEFENSE, WHICH IS WHAT THEY SAY, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO
DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST THIS OTHER GUY WHO ALSO HAS A GUN. SO
WHY CAN’T WE JUST MAKE IT THAT YOU ONLY GET TO HAVE A .22? EVERYBODY CAN HAVE A .22, A LOW CALIBER GUN, WHICH WOULD
WORK FOR SELF DEFENSE, AND IF YOU SHOOT SOMEBODY WITH
THAT, THAT WILL WORK. WHY DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN
AK-47?>>YOU NEED TO BLOW A GIGANTIC
HOLE THROUGH THEIR TEST.>>WHAT IF YOUR PENIS WAS
SMALLER?>>DAMMIT, THAT IS RIGHT. MAYBE
I DIDN’T THINK ABOUT THAT. MAYBE THIS IS FOR WOMEN, THEN. WE ALL
SAW THE VIDEO OF THE GUY WHO SAID SHOULD BLIND PEOPLE BE
ALLOWED TO CARRY GUNS? BEFORE YOU ANSWER, THINK OF THIS —
WHAT? THINK OF THIS — ARE YOU OFF YOUR MEDICATION? THAT IS
WHAT I’M THINKING. YOU SAW THAT VIDEO, RIGHT? IT WAS A YEAR OR
TWO AGO. I LEFT THING IS, I HOPE THE NRA DOESN’T GET HOOKED UP
WITH THE FIREWORKS MANUFACTURERS BECAUSE THERE WILL BE M-80S
GOING OFF ALL OVER THE PLACE. I WAS TAUGHT AS A KID THAT
FIREWORKS ARE IRRESPONSIBLE, YOU SHOULD LEAVE THEM TO THE
PROFESSIONALS, YOU COULD HURT YOURSELF — GUNS, THOUGH, WE SHOULD HAVE
THEM IN SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS.>>CONSERVATIVES, THOUGH, HATE
THOSE REGULATIONS ON FIREWORKS.>>IT IS ANTI-GROWN UP TO BE
IRRESPONSIBLE WITH GUNS. YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE OVERLY
RESPONSIBLE I THINK THEY GO THE OTHER WAY, LIKE THEY ARE MAKING
THE MANIAC’S ARGUMENT. WE SAW RICK SANTORUM WITH CHRIS
HARDBALL, YOU DON’T THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE GUNS IN
HOSPITALS? AND HE SAID, WHY NOT?>>UNFORTUNATELY THAT HAS BEEN
MORE COMMON, AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE MENTAL BREAKS IN HOSPITALS ARE
STARTING TO BE KILLED BY SECURITY GUARDS. AND THE REASON
YOU CAN’T HAVE GUNS EVERYWHERE IS THAT THIS ISN’T LIKE PUTTING
SOMETHING INTO YOUR BODY, THIS ISN’T ABOUT YOU, MAN, THIS IS
JUST SOMETHING I’M DOING — THE BULLET, ONCE IT LEAVES THE GUN,
DOES NOT CHECK TO SEE WHO FIRED IT. IT CAN HIT ANYBODY. LIKE AND
IOWA, FOR INSTANCE, TUESDAY THIS WEEK THE 12-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER
OF A MILITIA MAN WAS ACCIDENTALLY SHOT DURING A
MEETING. I WONDER IF HIS OPINION HAS CHANGED, I DOUBT IT HAS. THE
IOWA HOUSE ALSO PASSED BILLS THAT ALLOW PEOPLE RIDING
SNOWMOBILES TO CARRY LOADED FIREARMS, AND ALSO KEEP WEAPONS
PERMITS CONFIDENTIAL. I THOUGHT THE WHOLE IDEA WAS TO CARRY THE
GUN TO SCARE OFF PEOPLE. YOU SEEM TO NOT WANT THEM TO KNOW
YOU HAVE A GUN BEFORE THEY DO SOMETHING. IT SEEMS LIKE YOU WANT TO USE
THE GUN, AS OPPOSED TO SCARING THEM OFF.>>THAT MILITIA MAN, HE WAS
POSITIVE HE WAS GOING TO USE THAT WEAPON AGAINST A TERRORIST
WHO WOULD COME TO IOWA. LOOK AT THAT, IT WAS USED UNFORTUNATELY
AND ACCIDENTALLY ON YOUR DAUGHTER. WHICH IS ONLY — NOT A
THOUSAND, IT IS CLOSER TO A MILLION TIMES MORE LIKELY. HE
WAS ALSO GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT NOBODY CAME INTO HIS HOUSE, ALSO
ABOUT A THOUSAND TIMES MORE LIKELY YOU WILL SHOOT YOUR
DAUGHTER INSTEAD. WE ARE TRYING TO HELP YOU, YOU DON’T WANT TO
HELP. I WILL GET MY DAUGHTER SHOT WITHOUT YOU, YOU LIB.>>AND THAT GUY’S ARGUMENT WILL
BE, NOW THAT YOUR DAUGHTER WAS SHOT, DID YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND?
I GOT INTO A CAR ACCIDENT, I DIDN’T STOP DRIVING CARS.>>WE ALSO USE CARS FOR OTHER
REASONS.

  1. What happened to the days when people defended themselves with their fists? Now everyone thinks having a gun is gonna help them.. When in reality having a gun just increases your chances of getting shot…

  2. JOHN you have your OPINIONS but I am SICK of you FORCEING THEM onto OTHERS.  I am SURE there are MANY Topics that you AGREE on that I Don't but I will not LOWER myself to YOUR LEVEL and JUDGE YOU !

  3. I have been Around Fire Arms since I was Born, My Father Taught me the Rules and Safety. If he breaks a Rule or is Unsafe I tell him.  How about we Compare all the Gun Owners in this country to all the People who get killed by Guns and I am Sure it is NOT EVEN CLOSE TO 10 Percent.  More Kids Drink Before the Age of 21 then get Behind the Wheel of a Car so Lets BANNED ALL ALCOHOL First !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. A law that makes it legal and ETHICAL for kids to have handguns but not for sick kids to seek the aid of alternate medicines such as cannabis oil which they deemed unethical and highly illegal because it makes big pharma upset XD

  5. I'm not from the US but, some people there are not right in the head. I see it like an evil "culture" that gets stuck in these peoples heads, they assume that it is their culture and now their ego identifies with it, so it becomes a personal thing when their "culture gets questioned. And it seem to me to be a perfect sales pitch, this shows how to sell guns by first selling the idea that you need a big or small gun.

  6. I was raised on a farm, and I had a rifle when I was 12 years old, and was allowed to use my fathers military issue 45 cal. pistol, without any lasting trauma.

  7. why not go all the way and give them grenades,they could be the next big thing in toys if the NRA had their way,this law us beyond crazy.

  8. When I was seven I had a 22 rifle and a 22 pistol. It was fairly common. I was always under supervision and it seems perfectly fine to me, as long as adult supervision is applied.

  9. Even if you think it's fine for supervised children to wield firearms, you have to at least acknowledge the dangers a hand gun would have over a rifle. The kickback alone would pose a serious threat.

  10. While I highly appreciate the Second Amendment, I do not think that children under the age of 14 should be allowed to handle more that a toy gun. There are certain things that children are just not ready for yet. Like the responsibility which comes with handling a live firearm.

  11. I wish I could be on the panel when TYT talks about gun stories, since it is apparent that people on TYT don't have much firearm experience. Obviously grenade launchers are going too far in an argument and the only reason people do not use .22 handguns to defend themselves is that .22s are unreliable and are susceptible to jamming. Why are they comparing a .22 handgun to an AK-47 when it comes to self defense.
    I am a gun owner, but I do support higher gun control and regulations requiring more training/permits in order to obtain firearms. All I ask for is for more fair talk between the guys at TYT and someone who understands firearms, is reasonable, and knows what regulations work in reducing firearm related fatalities.

  12. While the law is insane, arent most child-gun related deaths caused by not having proper firearm etiquette?

  13. Once more, idiots who don't know anything about guns pontificating about them and speculating as if their ridiculous ideas have any basis in reality. Just like every video TYT make about guns, I don't even need to come up with new comments.

  14. When I was a kid, I remember they used to tell me I shouldn't handle sharp scissors. Now kids are allowed to have handguns, and apparently in some places, shotguns and rifles too. Freedom bay-bay!!

  15. most accident shootings happen from your local cops maybe you should learn more about guns of all sort before you start to scare people

  16. Keep in mind that Governor Terry Branstad (R-IA) is the reason why it's a red state. Staying in the GOP is like staying in the room with a live grenade!

  17. ive been handeling firearms including handguns since i was 6. im 33 still alive despite growing up in chicago and two tours in iraq.

  18. the issue of the gun's recoil being too much for children to handle is a moot point as children have shown time and again how capable they are of pulling the trigger on mommy's/daddy's lethal weapon that they own to 'protect their family'

  19. How is this not a joke article?! I'm losing it. This has to be a fuckin hallucination. I'm still tripping on acid with my roommates. I've got to be in a padded room somewhere.

  20. no laws against flamethrowers fyi libtards why n every video cenk goes crazy i dont think he argues very well reminds me of kindergarten or 1st grade must be the left thing.but i don't agree with 1yr old chooting its really imposible when you really think about it. 16 should be the age for every type of gun except assault guns witch mean full auto not semi auto . meanwhile in the middle east 6yr olds are making bombs and shooting full auto ak47

  21. You guys are so dumb and slick at the same time.
    Just because you teach a kid how to handle a gun doesn't mean he has 24 hr access to it. Again ; Leave our 1st amendment alone.

  22. I was taught at 8 how not to tase and how to be responsible with a gun. 27 years later I learned what the Army gave me on how to use a weapon. You can call us a fly over state, but don't knock it because you didn't get it. I don't own a weapon now, but this is the kind of thing that balances us. Yes, I ran a mark-10 over and over, but why are you thinking we can't learn to treat guns properly?

  23. GUNS. GUNS. GUNS. Y ARE REPUBLICANS SO HELL BENT ON GUN OWNERSHIP DESPITE SO MANY, SO MANY, SO MANY SHOOTINGS IN THE US !!!!!!!!!
    IT'S AS IF U DON'T CARE ABOUT PEOPLE'S LIVES AT ALL !!!!!!!!!!!
    IF THAT'S CONSERVATIVE POLITICS, THEN IT'S A TOTALLY MORONIC POLITICAL IDEOLOGY AND IT'S SUPPORTERS ARE FIRST GRADE RETARDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. the only positive I see out of this is some of these kids will accidentally shoot their idiot parents and have the chance of being raised by a sane person

  25. This is pretty irresponsible. This law reflects that what is important to the people behind it and in support of it is the gun. The children are less important.

  26. I wouldn't trust any kid with car Kay's
    And remember the kid who was playing with a fake and gun and got shot?

  27. these dude prolly never shot even a nerf gun before. and apparently has never heard of something called a 22 pistol… just a tip for everyone, plz educate yourself on a topic before you make open opinions on the topic.

  28. So South Park is getting real? Lol, and then people ask why the rest of the world is so stereotypical towards Americans. Was the girl that shot her instructor with a machine gun not enough?

  29. It's ok.. they are supervised… its not like any kids have shot their own dads who were supervising them or anything… OH WAIT!

  30. These guys act like because it is legal for kid under 14 to shoot a handgun under adult supervision, then it automatically puts a handgun in every child in Iowa's hands. The point of removing the law is so that responsible parents can teach their children to shoot and teach them gun safety at a younger age. It is not so that they can all have guns to kill people with. The opinions and sarcastic comments of these liberal jackasses mean nothing.

  31. in my life I have personally known two people who were shot dead. one was shot by accident with a .22 semiautomatice rifle her 16 year old was showing off under the impression there was not a round in the chamber. The other had his head, blown by his 5 year old playing out what hed seem on tv.

  32. Republicans are going to ban life jackets very soon. Just watch. Population control is absolutely bought, owned, and manipulated by the Repubs. They don't mind as long as THEY make the rules.

  33. Libtards everywhere. Children taught to respect the value of human life and the importance of gun safety are not the issue. Hood rat gangsta wannabes and children with scumbag parents are the issue.

  34. The law would leave it open to people with common sense to be able educate their children about guns. Certainly, it's crazy to think that toddlers are going to be allowed guns. Of course, stupid people like you three idiots are going to blow things out of proportion to make yourselves seem important. I have a 10 year old granddaughter that I am currently educating on gun safety and use. She is currently using a BB pistol, but by the time she is 12, she will be ready to step up to a 22lr pistol. If more people would exercise a very small amount of common sense, and take the time to educate others, there would be no big debate. Here's the deal, even if you don't believe in guns, is it too much to ask, to educate safety around them anyway. Try it, you might find that education is the key, instead of ranting about peoples lack there of. Your little "debate" was entertaining, but there was nothing in there that truly had merit. It was pathetic, and sounded more like a well scripted comedy routine.

  35. I am from Iowa and I'm glad my dad showed me how a gun works safety at a early age I have watched grown men and women miss use firearms but I don't wtf

  36. Part of the legitimate function of government is to protect people from idiots. That includes protecting idiots from idiots, including protecting them (and their children) from themselves.

    If some conservative idiot wants to call that "the nanny state" I will just point out that the most important way we protect people from people is via education. Conservatives, you should try education! It might help you!

  37. Conservatives in my life love guns so much they have dozens and STILL want to buy more so they are giving guns away for Christmas. I've never bought a gun but I have 2 anyway. It's a sickness, really.

  38. Kind of painful that these guys don't seem to understand the reason the 2nd amendment exists.  Regarding kids handling firearms, bad parents will be bad parents and won't care about any regulation, think of "locks only keep honest people out".  The responsible parents who have firearms in he house will be able to educate their children so they aren't saying "eeerrr, what's this daddy".

  39. handguns for everybody handguns to the 3 year old who might shoot himself and handguns for the toddler that shot his mom in the car
    lmao everyone is gunna die

  40. soooo I guess the whole parental supervision part just doesn't matter because you know what informing kids about gun safety parents always allow kids to shoot themselves or others that makes sense wait no it doesn't because responsible adults with guns Canton train their kids to be responsible like we do with anything else I. E. Credit cards cash toys cars and silverware which they're more likely to hurt themselves with it's somehow under our responsible supervision they have all learned how to actually use it without killing themselves let's not be stupid folks responsible adult responsible children

  41. Flamethrowers are actually nearly unregulated. That's probably because they aren't common. Let's hope the gun manufacturers don't start making them for profit the way they do with other weapons.

  42. I was raised around guns, was well educated in gun safety, and as a result prevented a friend from potentially injuring himself or someone else while handling his fathers handgun he THOUGHT wasn't loaded,

  43. If the parents are irresponsible the kids will get their guns anyway law or no law. There already are a constant number of kids killing themselves and others because of parental negligence. The horse is already out of the barn.

  44. Scared ass bitches, what are you afraid? of a toddler with a gun?  your chances are much higher at getting outed as gay , [Cenk…oops.]…as ever meeting a toddler with a gun. But I'm rooting for ya!

  45. I say we let them use bows and arrows and let them graduate to the next level weapon. toy bows with suction cup arrows, they make toy crossbows the same way.. later on you can graduate them to real arrows as their aim improves. if you use the hunting argument then kids need to learn to shoot. when they can handle recoil only let them use hunting rifles. according to facebook users there was a time schools taught kids to use rifles. so that I'm fine with. but handguns? they are only made for hunting humans. do we really wanna teach kids to hunt humans?

  46. Northern California, Lake County, May 1979, I was age 6 and had been speaking in full sentences since just before my second birthday, I can remember doing so. On the weekends my Mother, her husband and I would go to an unofficial outdoor shooting range outside of town and target shoot. I didn't like shooting because of the deafening sounds the guns made even while wearing ear protection. The recoil was a bitch too but I did learn proper firearm safety at a very young age, no one got shot or killed. Yes this law is asinine. Any firearm "accident" is the firearm handlers fault of carelessness regardless of any defensible argument.

  47. In modern gun politics, if it doesn't make sense, it will become law. Such as this one. Tech Nine for Tots coming soon!!!

  48. I"m from Council Bluffs Iowa and I wasn't remotely aware of this dumb Iowan Law. It makes us look more oblivious to gun safety than that Florida mom who was shot by her own kid.

  49. These guys are against supervising an 11 year old while teaching him how to handle a .22 caliber handgun, but in support of sending Bruce Jenner to the same restroom with their 11 year old daughter. smdh

  50. first off I want to say I was born & raised and still live in Iowa! If I want to teach my child to understand that firearms are tools not toys that's my business not yours so when you go running your mouth about us and what we want. remember your not from here so you morons don't and won't dictate how we live and how we raise are kids. Are liberty we prize are freedom we will maintain!!!

  51. An Iowans perspective – We need kids to learn guns and how to use along with respect them just as a person.

    The show hosts are all Anti-gun and have no idea what the law protains of. It states as they said that anyone under the age of 14 WITH SUPERVISION can use a pistol…" Before, this was an annoyance as responsible parents teaching their kids how to use a pistol would be fined for doing so. It's the simular as teaching your child to use a knife properly and then being fined for it.

    Before anyone says "They'll just cause for school shootings !!" Everyone has the possibility of being a shooter despite assebilty to guns or weapons.

    It is also proven that people that are taught how to use guns and respect them correctly at a young age have a less likely to become shooters.

    Feel free to state your oppion. All I ask is you state facts.

  52. The point is to allow parents to teach gun safety to their children you're not going to see a one-year-old with a pistol you dumbass

  53. under adult supervison if your child is injured shooting it the parents fault there is nothing wrong in teaching yer children to shoot properly and safely

  54. The amount of people here who have never listened to anybody outside of the moderate to far left half of the aisle both amuses and terrifies me

  55. I have lived in Iowa my whole life and every piece of information in this video is so wrong it's ridiculous, but I wouldn't expect anything else from a bunch of liberals

  56. its not up to state to teach gun safety its up to parents to make sure they know not to touch gun and also put lock on gun or put in lock approve gun safe or box come on these guns dont jump off of counter and kill people lot of parents teach their kids to shoot pistol at young age and also teach gun safety but up to you as parent to keep gun safe weather its s lock on gun or approve gun safe or box if you can afford to buy gun you can afford to get a lock or safe and these people on turks are nothing but jerks who think american should not have gun screw them

  57. "Under the supervision of their parents."
    The government has no right telling me that I cannot teach my son how to shoot a gun.

  58. I see no problem. the only way to improve safe handling of safe handling of firearms is to teach young children safe handling

  59. These ppl need to grow a brain. They have the intelligence of a 2 year old. 80 years ago the kids went to hint to get food to feed the family.

  60. People in the comment section are thinking this law means kids can go to any gunshop and walk out with a handgun. This law means an adult can purchase a gun for the kid but the kid can not posses the gun with out adult supervision. My grandpa bought me a .22 when I was 12 I’m 17 now and that gun is still locked in his gun cabinet and will be there till I turn 18 an can legally have the gun put in my name. All this law does is give kids a few years of Training and learning how guns work so they don’t grow up and shoot their self or someone else on accident.

  61. 0:16 "… with adult supervision" you acknowledge.

    Then almost every argument you present against this bill assumes people will be giving their toddlers guns and letting them do whatever they want.

    Typical childish Progressive rant.
