I dont think its a good idea........

They cant tell whats OK and what isnt most of the time and if they start playing with a TOY GUN,they might think a real gun is the same!!


Should children be allowed to play with toy guns?

That's why Toy guys are now Orange on the end so the cops know they are toys....Of course, I painted the end of my Glock orange just to mess with the bad guys....make them think they got a chance against a guy with a "Toy Gun".....Dead

Send a few boat loads of guns over to the Middle East, put them in a Happy Meal BAG and let them go nuts!

LOL OIL FOR BULLETS! It would be a beautiful thing!

Necro thread post!

I played with toy guns , smoked cigaretts and rode carnival rides. Yet I am still here.

I was taught real guns were not play toys and to follow the four rules of firearms.


RULE I: ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED

RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY

RULE III: KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET

RULE IV: BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET

Lets see now; No toy guns, no candy cigarettes, no carnival rides. Lets add to the list, no soda, leads to drinking, no toy cars, might lead to a fatal accident same for toy motorcycles. Time for parents to not only set an example of accepting responsibility but teach it to their kids. Time kids were taught stupid decisions now can easily affect the rest of their life.
