    No, it's what you did. Clearly for everyone to see. Grow a backbone and "man-up".

    no, its not what I did.

    but it is something you would do, hence your projection.

    just like your accusations of me not having a backbone. please stop projecting.

    One was designed for entertainment, and cannot be used as a weapon (or at least not any meaningfull sort) - it is a toy.

    The other was designed as a weapon, and can be (according to you) used as a toy - yet it is still a weapon.


    It comes down to this, in my mind:

    If it is possible to kill something or someone with an item using a minor effort, then it is not a toy.

    For the sake of argument, assume an adult human, wearing casual clothing, standing on a level earthen surface.

    In this situation, I'm not sure it is even possible to kill that person with that nerf machine gun...perhaps if I used it as a bludgeon? But that wouldn't be at all a minor effort…

    Whereas, the m249 would allow me to kill that person almost effortlessly, by comparison.

    its very simple: a firearm used for target practise or shooting random rodents, is used as a toy.

    some things, like guns, can be used as weapons of war, weapons of self-defense, and toys.

    a 249 could kill effortlessly but a 240b could kill them with twice the knockout power

    sadly mistaken,no single firearm is a toy,ever,its a tool.

    now if you use that tool for target practice,your using a tool to be better at using bigger tools.

    if you used that tool to kill or harm someone that tool became a weapon.


    just go google what people have killed with air guns,some things that have been killed are harder to take down than a person!

    sorry, you're wrong.

    a gun can be used as a toy. target shooting is one example of this.

    That's the problem... guns are never a toy. Anyone who believe a gun is a toy in any situation is ignorant of guns.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    quite wrong indeed when you use a toy that can kill,no toys kill,tools kill when improperly used,toys kill when parents ignore the choking hazard label or buy them from china with lead paint.
