Question: Should kids play with toy guns?

Answer: YES.

Unless you are a liberal and have a problem with kids being kids and don’t understand the opportunity to teach kids about responsibility and gun safety.

Yes, kids should be able to play with toy guns. Even real guns are FAR less dangerous than leftist lunatics.

Yes. No one ever learned anything by pretending that it didn’t exist. Rather than teach my kids to be terrified of guns, I taught them gun safety and to always leave if someone was playing with a real gun.

We had age-appropriate discussions of death and dying and how dangerous guns could be. It has gotten so bad these days that kids are expelled for making “gun shapes” with their hands.

What happened to cowboys and Indians, or does that sound racist?

Kids will make guns out of cookies, Legos and sticks to play with, trust me.

Yes, and if they don’t have anything else, they point with their index fingers to shoot! That convinced me in my younger years to let them play with guns.

I sure liked my Roy Rogers cap gun when I was 6, 60 years ago. Wish I could find an cap gun now with real caps. That would be fun again!

Brings back fond memories of the aromas of my discharged cap guns and the 22s, 30-30, and M-1 fired by myself.

Yeah, I used to get board and smash whole rolls with a hammer. Sometimes just two rocks.

I don’t remember asking these social engineers to “improve” us. I think I’ll just ignore them until they go away.

I’m a girl. I wore “fru-fru” stuff. I was a prom Queen. But, I had cap guns. I smashed rolls of caps w/hammers/rocks to hear them “pop.” I built a reproduction black powder “Kentucky Rifle” from a kit. It works. It is mounted over my mantle. I got a replica “antique” 22 rifle for Christmas recently as a present. I grew up w/rural dairy farming family/community. We had guns (in a huge, glassed, locked, living room display case) to hunt for venison, geese, pheasant, doves, etc, for FOOD. We also raised beef cattle, pigs, chickens (meat/eggs) domestic geese & turkey… Read more »

My children always had water pistols, super soakers and nerf guns etc.. I have always been against the real looking replica toy guns. When all my kids got about age 9 or 10 they learned to shoot and hunt with real guns. I am against the muscle memory developed and the lack of muzzle awareness when playing with real looking toy guns. Especially if they handle and have a real one in thier hands regularly. I told them you can have the toys or the real ones but not both. It’s never been an issue in my house. By the… Read more »

I have some other questions…
Should kids play with kiddy kitchen and household tools? (Knives, forks, ovens, electrical appliances)
Should kids play with kiddy hand tools? (Axes, hammers, saws)
All of these things could be deadly, if misused. I’m sure you all can think of other examples. All of this play by children teaches them important things about life.
Toy guns are no different.
Answer: Yes
