    Ok, please elaborate. With a water gun what is the "proper respect and discipline?"

    This is like asking "what are legos". Or "what are stars wars action figures".
    Except these things are recognised around the world and clearly Nerf guns aren't.

    Okay, so I'll repeat my original question. What is a Nerf gun? Oh never mind, I'm not that interested.

    Or you could just educate yourself by looking them up on the internet rather than asking your goofy questions here.

    I've already been very clear:

    1. Treat it as a loaded weapon.
    2. Training environment.

    The kid can point it at other people/object and shoot, etc as long as it is a structured, training environment.

    I simply don't believe that giving kids "fake guns" and letting them run recklessly promotes good habits later in life.

    There was me hoping kids where intelligent enough these day's to be able to distinguish between the two. Toy gun's where my life, i'm 18 turning 19 and i haven't shot anybody yet.

    I think I was looking at an earlier report that was from 2003 or 2004. Idk when it was released. I found the report from a link in the article you linked to.
