    In my personal opinion I think some children's minds are to innocent to comprehend what's going on in the world. I think it depends on the parents/guardian of the child and how they perceive their children playing with them. I  held a real gun when I was about 10 years old and I didn't comprehend the harm in it but times have changed. There are more ways to figure things out on your own now a days then they where back in my childhood days.

    And while we're at it, let's ban water balloons and garden hoses., they may develop an unhealthy desire to use hand-grenades and flame-throwers!

    We need to ban everything.. guns, knifes, bats, balls, rocks, hammer, shovels, forks, spoons,sprays, fire, meds, wood, nails, shocks, ropes,any kind of belts, car's , trains, bikes, scooters, don't forget paper and pen's, and those darn hands we need to get rid of them for some reason they make a fist and hit things i don't know why but their no good and feet too they just start kicking and stomping on things for no reason , us humans sure didn't make them do it. Any thing and every thing that can hurt some one some how. Humans don't hurt, nope all these other things come alive and kill by themselves. Just like a gun puts its own ammo in it and pulls it's trigger all by its self. We deffently need to get rid of the brain because it hurts peopel by just thinking, O wait a lot of people have already lost their brains some where, just don't pick it up if you find it , it could kill ya.
