Illinois baby obtains gun permit
Bubba's father, Howard Ludwig, applied on his behalf after his grandfather gave him a shotgun as an heirloom.
Mr Ludwig said he had not expected to succeed, but he filled in the online form, paid $5 and the licence was his.
If I may, I'd like to speak directly to this child's father for a moment.
Mr. Ludwig, I can't even fathom the reasons why you've done this. Named your child Bubba, I mean. "Bubba" is a nickname given to people by siblings and/or classmates in backwater communities (see Bill Clinton). It is a hillbilly affectation designed to ensure that the bearer will never be taken seriously by anyone.
A better idea would be to name your child something else - Christopher, maybe - and then, if someone starts calling him "Bubba," slap that person until he falls down, because he's trying to heap shame upon your family.
If you have more children - and something tells me you will - please keep this in mind.
