  1. I have to wonder if this event was real, or staged to create a headline.

    In the real world, no one (not even a 12 year-old) is dumb enough to walk through the streets of Philadelphia with a loaded AR, and the cops would have shot him to pieces if it did happen.

    In the TV world, it sends the message that these things should be banned because crazy kids are prowling the streets with them.

  2. I guess I’d have to see this with my own 2 eyes
    I simply dont believe this , and why? .. because they kill us because were holding cell phones, they kill us when we hold nothing ,they kill us for selling loose cigarettes , they kill us because they are scared..etc

    this “kid” had an allegedly “loaded AR ” and they didnt “Fear for their miserable lives”?

    yep..nahh I aint buying this narrative.. this is just another sensational report to give more momentum to the reasons why they want to remove us from our rightfully owned property

  3. “Philadelphia police say they have arrested a 12-year-old boy who was walking down a street with a loaded AR-15 rifle.”

    Really?

    And not ONE SINGLE PERSON has any video of it???

    What are the odds.
