You're Most Certainly Not Getting a BB Gun, Ya Dope.

Kinetic 3 is turning 15 this month and all his little heart wants is a BB gun, because he and his friends like to make war movies (or something).
Every single inner instinct I have automatically says, "No. Not gonna happen, pal," because of all the obvious reasons (no guns in my house, what the hell do you need a gun for, someone's gonna lose an eye, etc.).
My question is: is there any reason my kid should
be allowed to get a BB gun? Am I missing something?
