    My wife has enacted a ban against a Red Ryder for my 5 year old this Christmas . . .

    Veto

    Man you have to veto that ban. I bought my girl a Little Buck when she was 5. I am looking at the .22s now that she is 7.

    Sounds like they want to get rid of airsofts too.

    It's this little type of stuff that ultimately harms us because despit the fact that toys are toys and real guns are real guns a childs ability to be around even toy guns IMO helps acclimate them to the real thing.

    Next thing you know they'll want to ban pointed knives.

    MP, that's a shame. Probably going to get my kids one this Christmas, 6 and 4 year olds. Only to be used with adult supervision at this point.

    Roswell, Georgia

    Just a reminder that it is not always those New England liberals that are out there restricting Red Ryders . . .


    Roswell and the Red Ryder

    Mercifully, Forsyth Co. is not that wacky yet. Parents, as usual, are either the solution or the problem. Why people worry so much about unattended children shooting BB guns, while standying by with unattended children guiding 4,000 lb. missles called cars, is a mystery to me. The carnage wrought by poorly supervised children in automobiles surely ought to be a higher priority than regulating how my daughter and I shoot BBs at paper targets in my back yard.

    LOL, I hear ya...That's awesome...I can't wait till my 2 and 3 year old big lil guys can go shootin with me...I bogut them each cap guns of course, and make them watch eddie eagle weekly..LOL...

    Maybe they can get air soft guns next year at least...

    Either way, it sucks to even here that someone would ban BB guns, they've been an American staple for kids for centuries, now some liberal control freaks are considering taking that away??? Bastages...
