Baby's got a gun...

Ah, god bless the NRA. Fighting for the rights of gun-owning citizens everywhere, even when those citizens are...10 month old babies.

In Illinois, you're never too young to own a gun.

That's what one father found out, when he registered his 10-month-old son for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card.

Daily Southtown columnist Howard Ludwig registered his son —- Howard David Ludwig, nicknamed "Bubba" — online after the child's grandfather bought him a gun shortly after the baby's birth. Ludwig chronicled the road to gun ownership in a story that appeared in the Southtown on Sunday.

"Anyone who wants to own a firearm or purchase a firearm needs a FOID card," Ludwig told FOX News. "I applied for one of these for my son. Now ironically he can’t buy a gun until he’s 18 years old, but if he wants to own one -- which he does thanks to Grandpa -- he needs one of these cards anyhow."

Woo hoo! Yeah! That kid is going to be a hoot and a half at daycare, man. "Um, Bubba, please do not threaten to 'cap' anyone today, ok?"
