I used to get angry now I just laugh. How can you do anything but laugh at this latest proposed legislation seeking to ban toy guns in New Jersey
The ban (yep, another ban folks!) would make it illegal for anyone under 18 to purchase a toy gun. Violators would be subject to $1,000 fine or six months in prison.
The esteemed NJ moron senator who is backing this would rather ban the item altogether than encourage parents to talk to their children about the proper use of toy guns. The moron Senator Nicholas Scutari said, "We need to stress to our children that guns are not toys, but deadly weapons which should always be regarded with extreme caution and handled with respect. Restricting access to imitation firearms will help to drive that point home."
So how many crimes were committed with toy guns last year Senator?
Yes we know that some stupid kids bring toy guns to school and it can be difficult to tell if it's real or not to a teacher. So why not create a rule, a strict one that states bringing a toy firearm to school will result in extreme punishment? How about kicking the kid out of school? I mean hell we kick boys out of school now for more serious offenses like oh--telling a girl she is pretty, or wearing a cross on a necklace, or accidentally leaving a butterknife in the back of their car or the ultimate sin of having a key ring that might God-forbid have a point on it.
This ban is yet one more attempt to take away from parents the responsibility of parenting and lay it in the hands of the government.
