In 2007 in Illinois, 10-month old Bubba Ludwig was gifted a shotgun as a family heirloom. The baby’s family, perhaps wanting to ensure that they were not breaking any laws, applied for a gun license on Bubba’s behalf . . . and succeeded. Bubba’s license includes a recent baby photo and a squiggle that purports to be a signature, but could just as easily be a cry for help.
Bubba’s gun license application was originally refused, but only because his father had forgotten to check the box that confirmed his son was a US citizen.
