    That happens with unpainted guns.

    People are to afraid of guns.

    And I would bet that it would even happen easier when painted like a toy.

    Guns aren't toys. In fact, you should fear guns. People don't laugh when a gun is pointed at them.

    I have no problem with people being responsible gun owners. Making them look like toys doesn't qualify for responsible in my book.

    The creation of the colorful paints for guns was in response to people trying to ban guns based on looks alone.

    It is only worth fearing the gun when someone is pointing it at you.

    It could also get younger people involved in the shooting sports and learn the safe handling.

    Who's trying to ban guns on their looks?

    Bullets can ricochet.

    Marketing guns to kids is utterly stupid. It's a parent's job to decide if they want their kids to learn about target shooting and the safe handling of firearms. I learned when I was eight. So don't think I am against kids learning these things.

    The Democrat party, the Brady Campaign, the Anti-Gun Coalition of America......etc.

    And?

    Since the kids can't legally buy the guns it would logically dictate that the parents made the choice to buy it for them yes? Also, children historically had to learn firearms in the states for protection and food gathering, what changes about teaching kids safe gun ownership in today's supermarket/technology era? Answer: nothing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    But, then, we must be realistic......do we have the quality or intellect of people to be anti-gun, as I am ??....
    The second amendment dictates what is allowed, not what America "needs" and it's not an individual's.....any individual's business to dictate "need" in America. Also, get off of that whole intellect=no guns argument, I score as a borderline genius on I.Q. tests and appreciate/respect/love firearms, intellect doesn't determine a position on an issue, logic.....or lack thereof does.

    You can't win a fight with an imaginary weapon. That's why I'd bring a gun instead of my intellect to a fight.
