Call to End Toy Guns

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/12/26/anti-toy-gun-campaign-re-launched-after-connecticut-tragedy/

Toy guns have been a favorite target of the Left and the sheep of our society.

We are told that children should be protected from anything that looks like a gun and that doing so will make our society safer.

The man behind the program in the link at top is named Jerry Rubin. Interestingly  it appears that this may be the very same Jerry Rubin who was one of the founding Yippies of the 60's. That man was reported to have been killed while jaywalking in 1994, but I came across a claim that the report of the death may have been faked.

The real reason behind barring toy guns has, for the vast majority of its proponents, very little to do with safety. The Left needs to create a classless and genderless society in order to get their system off the ground. While girls often do play with toy guns, as did my oldest, it is the boys who are mostly drawn to cars/trucks, mechanical or building -type objects, and weapons. From the dawn of human history, it was the boys who acted out with sticks, stones, pretend bows and arrows, and later, pretend firearms. It is in the male nature to think in terms of protection, hunting, and fighting bad guys. My son, enamored with the bad-guy crushing Power Rangers, lived a childhood filled with imagination of striking out against those who would harm others. He was rarely without a toy sword or gun, but even he occasionally played with his sister's doll that had accessories for play-feeding. Today, I can't swing a dead cat without hitting someone who is telling me what a nice and well-mannered young man he is (Of course they do not have to deal with him when he wakes up in the morning).

The Left cannot have men acting and thinking like men, so they need to excise male-type play at an early age. They would and do want a person entering military service to see a firearm up close for the first time. Jerry Rubin, and others of his type, have shorn themselves of their manliness. Like true Leftists, though, they are not content with this and want to force the same onto you and your children..

A people that is rendered sheep-like by the prohibition of toy weapons (And possibly real ones) is helpless in the face of violent criminal activity. They have been so conditioned to detest any and all violence that a phone call to the cops is almost the only defense available. A nation can just barely get by with this system until either invaded by another or if the financial situation deteriorates to a point in which the military is not longer effective. With either scenario, the people can do nothing but remain in their homes and hope that their respective houses are not entered. If your society has been taught to act in the manner of sheep, you can be assured that the people who comprise the opposing force have not; indeed, in many cases, these people have grown up slaughtering their own animals.

In short, neither boys nor society as a whole is harmed by children pretending to use weapons*. Children are taught to stay out of the driver's seat of a car, refrain from touching Dad's tools (Especially power tools), keep clear of ranges/ovens and woodstoves/fire places, leave electrical outlets for parents to use, avoid medicine and under-sink cabinets, and not to touch guns.

One case proves nothing, but my kids never played with or touched my guns. I was a law enforcement officer, and my sidearm was always coming in and out of the house. This was especially true when I was a K9 officer and was on call for periods that amounted to a third to half of the year. My kids were told that my firearm(s) were like the other objects in and around the house that were not to be touched without adult supervision.

Of course we do see tragedies in which children do pick up and use real guns, but children also are severely injured or killed with all the above and more. I cannot imagine that a parent, after discovering that his child was electrocuted, would be relieved that the kid had not been shot.

I personally liked the requirement that toy guns needed to have an orange tip at its "muzzle". Of course, criminals can and have colored their real guns orange, but cops cannot be forced to assume that an orange tip means that the gun is definitely a toy. Kids can cover the orange with tape or permanent marker, but parents always have the right to smash the guns into pieces and thrown it away if their children pull such a stunt.
