13-year-old killed for his toy rifle

The police need to learn that having a gun is not a reason to shoot. Especially when you are talking about a 13-year-old, but it applies to adults as well. If someone has a gun and is using it to threaten you, and you are a law abiding citizen, then you can shoot him -- not just for having it. Remember, in many states it is entirely legal to carry a rifle openly.

The difference between carrying a rifle and threatening someone with it should be easy to discern. Even more so the difference between carrying and actually shooting. (The lack of extremely loud bangs should be a major clue).
