Default Illinois Issues Gun Owner Identification Card to 10-Month-Old Boy

Illinois Issues Gun Owner Identification Card to 10-Month-Old Boy
05-15-2007 8:06 PM

CHICAGO (Associated Press) -- Bubba Ludwig can't walk, talk or open the refrigerator door _ but he does have his very own Illinois gun permit.

The 10-month-old, whose given name is Howard David Ludwig, was issued a firearm owner's identification card after his father, Howard Ludwig, paid the $5 fee and filled out the application, not expecting to actually get one.

The card lists the baby's height (2 feet, 3 inches), weight (20 pounds) and has a scribble where the signature should be.

With some exceptions, the cards are required of any Illinois residents purchasing or possessing firearms or ammunition within the state. There are no age restrictions on the cards, an official said.

Illinois State Police oversee the application process. Their purpose, said Lt. Scott Compton, is to keep guns out of the hands of convicted felons, those under an order of protection and those convicted of domestic violence.

"Does a 10-month-old need a FOID card? No, but there are no restrictions under the act regarding age of applicants," he said.

Ludwig, 30, of Chicago, applied for the card after his own father bought Bubba a 12-gauge Beretta shotgun as a gift. The weapon will probably be kept at Ludwig's father's house until the boy is at least 14.

1,000 points to anyone who guessed the kid's name was "Bubba" prior to reading the story!

I think every infant in the country should be armed. That is really the solution to violence. Give the entire population deadly weapons. Hell, can we start arming toddlers with missiles?

I'm actually in favor of making all types of guns legal. I think every person should own at least one gun and be allowed to carry them whenever and wherever they want, even to school.

I'm also in favor of outlawing bullets.

"Everybody is talking about gun control. Got to control the guns. ****, that, I like guns. If you've got a gun, you don't need to work out! Cause, I ain't working out. I ain't jogging. No, I think we need some bullet control. I think every bullet should cost five thousand dollars. Five thousand dollars for a bullet. Know why? Cos if a bullet cost five thousand dollars, there'd be no more innocent by-standers. That'd be it. Some guy'd be shot you'd be all 'Damn, he must've done something, he's got fifty thousand dollars worth of bullets in his ass!' And people'd think before they shot someone 'Man I will blow your ****ing head off, if I could afford it. I'm gonna get me a second job, start saving up, and you a dead man. You'd better hope I don't get no bullets on lay-away!' And even if you get shot you wouldn't need to go to the emergency room. Whoever shot you'd take their bullet back. 'I believe you got my property?'" - Chris Rock

That is unless a gun falls off a shelf and hits someone in the head, killing them
