Re: the Nerf gun for kids. It's an awesome gadget until a cop sees your kid carrying one on the street and murders your kid because your kid didn't hear or respond fast enough at the cop's orders to drop the weapon, etc. It happened in Santa Rosa, Ca. last autumn. The boy was Hispanic so that might have pushed the cop over the top but given cops' "roid rage", fear of anything that moves, man or beast attitude this toy just doesn't have a place in America today. Personally, I'm sick of gun toys in general. I'm sick of real killings and fantasy killings. The world is awful enough and out of our control. Why perpetuate it through play?
