Outrageous! East Coast City Bans Sale of “Imitation Firearms” – A.K.A. “Toy Guns”

10774458_sFor too long we’ve seen it happening in our schools.

Zero-tolerance policies make pop-tart guns a punishable offense. And no longer is it acceptable for children to  put their index and middle fingers together to create a “make-pretend” blaster without fear of punitive action.

And while that kind of zero-tolerance ridiculousness is happening inside of American schools, a certain city council has decided to pass similar legislation for the rest of the population.

The Atlantic City Council recently approved ordinances to ban the sale of toy guns. The law was brought to pass by every council member in the municipality and makes it illegal for any toy that resembles a gun to be sold.

Initiated by Police Lt. James Sarkos, the toy gun ordinance bans the sale, possession or use of any imitation firearms — except for non-firing antiques and film prop guns — which aren’t in bright, fluorescent colors or transparent. Pistols that use metal caps are banned from being sold to minors.

Apparently, Council President William Marsh and Councilman George Tibbitt think this is a revolutionary idea that is going to change the world.

“We’ve gotten a lot of phone calls from D.C. and Philadelphia,” Tibbitt said. “This is catching on. This may be saving some lives,” Marsh added.

You can see where they’re going with this.

Toy guns are just too realistic, so they should be banned. Why? Because guns are bad of course.

But whatever happened to common sense?

At the very least it comes down to responsible parenting. Parents should encourage their children to respect the law. Police should also inform them of the role of police in fighting crime. That’s called education.

Depriving kids of toy guns in the interest of public safety is nothing short of Orwellian. When children are made to believe that only police are meant to have weapons, it sets up a world where the balance of power sits firmly in the hands of the state.

Not a good place to be.

    Many parents choose to not expose their children to guns, “toy” or real. Last October in a Northern CA town a 13 year old boy, carrying a “toy” gun from which the identifying orange tip was removed, was shot and instantly killed by a policeman. When a “toy” can be so easily mistaken for an AK47 by bystanders or police officers the entire community is at risk.

    • W.C.

      Come on!! Kids have had toy guns for years. Back in the 70s and 80s and before when police and others had the common sense the Good Lord gave a piss ant kids weren’t shot because the officer thought the gun was real. Cops and robbers has been a childhood game for the longest time and now that is criminalized? We need to get all the cowardly scaredy-cats out of law enforcement and politics. When kids can’t be kids because some coward in authority is that scared, something’s dead wrong!! Wake up, America and pull your head out of your rear end!!!

      • Frank Hartzell

        if kids can’t play cops and robbers ,how do they learn about right and wrong?KIDS DON’T JUST TAKE YOUR WORD FOR THINGS.Are you going to ban movies that have gun play in them so the kids aren’t exposed to guns and ask about them[that would be aukwerd,in a no gun society],what do you tell them to prepear them for the day the thug steps up to them and tells them to pull them down,and bend over.

        • Mike G

          when kids play “cops and robbers” it is in a sense teaching good and bad, put the games in proper context, the good guys always won in the end…

    • W.C.

      Homegirl, guns are only as evil as the person using them. Kids playing with toy guns is centuries old!! Why would you or anyone else their right minds want to criminalize innocent, harmless child’s play? Why would you want to make it so easy to criminalize sweet, innocent kids who are just that? Little kids playing “cops and robbers” are a threat to no one. Look at the picture at the top of this article. Would that little boy (or little boy of ANY ethnicity) honestly cause you to fear for your life?

    • Chassit

      Do you even know what an AK-47 is?

      • homegirl

        I know it is a dangerous, effective military weapon. However, we are discussing the dangers of “toy” guns that are highly realistic in appearance and the “identifying” orange tip is easily removed or disguised. As a result a 13 year old was perceived as carrying an authentic weapon and was shot and died instantly. Hit by 7 of 8 rounds fired in single digit seconds by a police officer who had served in the military and was a seasoned veteran.

        • Chassit

          IOW you don’t, which is why you should just shut the hell up with your treasonous nonsense and educate yourself instead.

          • john dierking

            chass, no point in arguing, This is another example of conclusions being made up front, and the story twisted to fit the conclusion. Homegirl is absolutely closed minded. and will not be swayed by facts, reason or logic.

          • Chassit

            Sadly, you speak the truth.

          • Frank Hartzell

            what kind of name is “homegirl”?Girly if you’re black think more blacks abuse guns,and kill more black people then cops or whatever.Black people who teach their kids good gunmanship usually have kids grow up and become cops and other respectable members of society,and not thugs.

        • john dierking

          how can you distort reality so easily to make the cops actions defensible, and blame the kid? That is like blaming a woman for getting raped.

          • homegirl

            You miss the point-a “toy” gun which is so realistic as to be seen as a real weapon when the identifying orange tip is removed or painted to match the rest of the “toy” weapon can be so dangerously mistaken for a real weapon, many people are to blame:
            1. the manufacturer who produced a “toy” which is dangerously similar to the real thing.
            2. the parents for not controlling the ability to alter the “toy”
            3. the policeman for being too quick on the draw
            4. the kid who also had a very authentic “toy” pistol in his waistband.

            I freely admit, I am opposed to the glorification of guns. There is a place and a time, hunting, target shooting but small children being given air rifles, bb guns and the like is dangerous to both the children and others.

          • Frank Hartzell

            I’ve been shooting guns since I was 6 years old.Tell the toy companies to make toys to look like toys,and the parents to buy only those for the kids,and try talking to your kids if you say at a young enough age[wow teaching morels]they will learn the difference between real guns and the responsibilities of them,and TOYS.YES all my grand kids have TOY guns and know how to shoot real ones and how to be responsible with a real one,and the toys look like toys so some moron will not make a mistake.[My youngest is 8, and goes hunting with me,and she’s a damn good shoot already for only 8,and that’s not grandpa talking]

          • Roger12266

            You really DO live in the Looney Left world.
            If you were to ask a military basic training person what the difference in surviving in combat is between a kid who grew up with guns and a kid from the looney left, you would find out that the kid who grew up with guns is about 5 times more likely to come home.
            GET A GRIP.

            Only to brainwashed idiots who fear guns….. police included.

          • b4k9zp

            Especially people like homegirl. (who IIRC, used to post here under the name redheadgirl.

          • b4k9zp

            Back in the 1950s, 1960s and even into the 1980s, there were many “toy guns” that were at least as realistic as the actual weapons they resembled. Some even fired caps, to make some noise. OThers were real weapons which fired BBs or lead pellets. And there were far fewer shootings by anyone than there are now, with all the anti-gun laws in effect.

            Small children being given air rifles, bb guns, and even .22s and small shotguns is not any problem as long as the kids are taught how to handle those weapons safely. You ignore the fact that children are curious and when when their mothers (especially) are so afraid of inanimate objects that they never let them have one, they will get themselves into trouble when they find even a bb gun or a nerf shooter. As the old saying goes, as the twig is bent, so the tree is inclined. When the child is brought up to respect, not irrationally fear, guns, he or she knows what a gun can do if mishandled and is far less likely to mishandle one.

          • homegirl

            Ahh the “good old days.” Current events prove the dangers of living in the past.

            “When the child is brought up to respect, not irrationally fear, guns, he
            or she knows what a gun can do if mishandled and is far less likely to
            mishandle one.”

            Would you believe there are millions, perhaps hundreds, maybe billions of people in the world who have never seen or handled a gun yet they have tremendous respect for the power of guns, of all types. A gun in not, never was and never will be a toy.

          • Mike G

            sadly the kid altered his toy to make it appear real, a lesson needs to be learned here. Both the cop and the kid need to share some of the blame.

          • john dierking

            There is something that can be agreed upon. If the kid was being all gangbanger on the cop with a toy gun, that is Darwinism at work. Bet you that the cop is already feeling bad. We just will not get the whole story.

        • Frank Hartzell

          HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TELL THE DAMN DIFFERENCE THEN!!!!!!

          • Kent2012

            Frank from a distance they look very real, but eight rounds ? come on…the parasites and the media clowns were all over the Ferguson officer….and he had already been hammered by “tubs” brown and had vision trouble from tubs smacking him around…this “veteran” could have taken him down without unloading his weapon into him….

          • Frank Hartzell

            He had already been hammered around,he was haveing vision trouble,sounds like he was getting killed by this clownn and did what was needed,befor his buddy got a pair and jumped in.I don’t always side with the police but can yoy relate to this cop were you ever accosted by some one bigger then you,to know how he was thinking at the point of pulling the trigger?My kids have all had air soft guns look real,I had police come talk to me about my kids carring guns,and I explained what they were.IF you patrol a neighborhood you should know who lives there,therefor you know who is carring what.Besides at his age WHAT WAS HE DOING with a gun, toy or otherwise

          • Mike G

            make damned sure, empty the clip, or magazine.

          • b4k9zp

            if there is anything truthful about what “homegirl” stated in the first place.

          • Mike G

            you only have an instant to decide whether or not the gun is real, unless it has a big sign on it saying “MATELL”

        • Roger12266

          Get a life and stop meddling in other people’s business.
          If you don’t like guns, don’t get one. If you don’t like toy guns, don’t get one, but you have NO RIGHT to tell someone else that they can’t have one because YOU don’t think that they should. You can’t ban something guaranteed in our Constitution simply because YOU think it is for OUR own good. Things do NOT work that way.

          • homegirl

            I have never said that guns should be banned. However, I do support certain limits. Licensing is a must, felons should not have guns and I admit I absolutley oppose the current campaign promoting “open carry.” Go ahead speak your piece just as I have spoken mine but do not make assumptions. Yes, I do not like guns so I don’t and never will have one. Any thing that looks like a gun but is not a gun is a very foolish item to carry as witnessed by the young boy who was shot and killed where I live because a police officer hastily identified the altered “toy” gun as a real weapon.

            By the way the second amendment was enacted when muskets were the height of portable weaponry, I have no objection to you or anyone else having as many muskets as you want.

        • b4k9zp

          There is no such thing as a dangerous weapon. There are only dangerous people. Nothing you state about this incident is believable, for in one of your comments you hysterically said that he was carrying a toy handgun in his waistband, and in another he was carrying an AK-47 which is a rifle.

    • john dierking

      I miss the point of your argument. Is that the defense that the cops are using? Do you just refuse to see how dangerous that is? Seems lately a lot of things can get you shot for what later seems like a bad idea from cops. Do not blame guns for this, make the cops take personal responsibility.

      • Jarhead

        And what Judge is going to find a fellow Public Servant guilty?

      • JohnB

        Even the family dog should be armed when the cops come around. He seems to have been a target lately.

    • Joe Toland

      That policeman should be charged with murder and jailed.

      • homegirl

        Many in that community agree with you but the DA and the Chief of Police have returned him to full time duty on the street.

        • b4k9zp

          Since you don’t even know what kind of “toy gun” the “kid” was carried, your comments are not worth much.

    • 2ThinkN_Do2

      Who is ultimately responsible for the behavior the child or young man practiced? They are the party to be held responsible. We have lost complete sight of responsibility in our society.

      • homegirl

        There is plenty of blame to go around, some to the parents who were not watching and the identifying orange tip was removed. The young man who removed it. He must have been deeply into a fascination with guns as he also had a toy pistol from which the identifying orange tip had been removed in his waistband. The policeman who is evidently trigger happy- EIGHT SECONDS from the time he stopped the police car, placed himself behind the door, drew his weapon and fired eight rounds, seven hit the boy and one penetrated a nearby home.

        • b4k9zp

          If the kid never removed the toy gun from his waistband, the cop was definitely at fault, and would have been at fault even if the gun had been real. For if the kid was merely carrying the gun down the street he was of no threat to anyone.

          BTW, Homegirl is this the same kd that you griped about a few minutes ago that was carrying (according to your little screed) a toy AK-47, which is NOT a handgun?

          • homegirl

            Sequence of events: The 13 year old was walking near a vacant block of land, no sidewalk.
            Someone called the police and reported a male person openly carrying a military type gun.
            Police car approached the young person from the rear
            Police officer exited the vehicle, stationed himself behind vehicle door, drew his weapon, called out to the young person to drop the weapon.
            As the young person began to turn, still holding the “toy” weapon, the officer opened fire, discharging 8 rounds, 7 of which hit the young person. Who died instantly.
            The 8th round entered a private home in the area.
            The deceased also had a “toy” handgun in his waist band under his jacket. The identifying orange tip had also been removed form the handgun.

            Two lessons to be learned: 1. Don’t remove the identifying orange tip from a “toy” weapon.
            2. Don’t be so quick to shoot, even if your are a police officer.

            I hope you can accept this account of the events without passing further judgement on me and my right to free speech.

    • Frank Hartzell

      tell the toy companies to make toys look like TOYS,don’t F&&& with the children.The younger a person is when they learn good gunmanship the more responsible they are as they grow.Mine are all responsible gun ownerrs and users.

    • Jarhead

      Take it you never had children and if you did they were raised in a plastic bubble…how did it work out for you?

    • usncb

      So we get our kids to think guns are really bad and should be feared. Then a child joins the service and is now paranoid because is issued a gun. What is he/she suppose to think. Hand to hand combat, only ? Wait they may ban knives, hammers, ball bats etc. etc. Now what?

      • homegirl

        The US military is a volunteer system. Why would anyone who fears guns join the military? And I doubt that the military would accept them. Speaking of paranoia your post reeks of it.

        • b4k9zp

          Yours is the only paranoia, when you reek of your irrational and illogical fear of inanimate objects, and want to destroy everyone else’s constitutionally protected right to carry any weapon they please anywhere they want to go.

        • usncb

          And just what is your military experience ? They don”t fear them until they have one and are told that they are really bad as they kill people not that people kill people as do knives, ball bats, etc. etc. You need more experience in life. Paranoia ??? Talk to me about para. after you spent over a year in a combat zone, then speak !!!!

      • homegirl

        According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

        The
        U.S. firearms fatality rate among children under 15 years old is nearly
        12 times higher than in 25 other industrialized countries combined, a stunning lapse of core government responsibility.

        About 3,000 children and teens die from gun injuries every year. (That exceeds one Sandy Hook Massacre every three days.)

        A child or teen dies or is injured every 30 minutes from guns.

        According
        to The New England Journal of Medicine, among children and young people
        (1 to 24 years old), gun-related injuries caused 6759 deaths
        nationally. For perspective, that’s twice as many deaths as caused by
        cancer, five times as many as heart disease, and 15 times as many as
        infections.

        To those fatality numbers, add the 20,000 children rushed to emergency rooms with gun injuries every year.

    • freebirds

      Years ago they didn’t have orange tips. Kids didn’t get shot by cops. When a cop takes a job he assumes all risk that come with that job. Just like a plumber or electrician. One might get electrocuted, one might get get flooded out and drown in a catch basin or both might get the same demise. But as with every profession one should have common sense. That’s what there being paid for. If they can’t do there job well then quit. Of there going to shoot a child with a gun then do a job that you can handle without the risk at hand. Every time you drive a car your at risk. In fact your at a higher risk than getting shot. If we are truly about saving lives let’s put our money where our mouth is and band things in order of rate of death by percentage. Obviously motorcycles first, snowmobiles, cars, then trucks, and work our way down the chain to guns. They would be near the banning of thunder storms and lightning deaths likely. But first band all democrats with guns because they make up for roughly 97% of gun crimes. Take them out and it leaves gun crime near zero.

    • Roger12266

      In Californicate I believe the police are instructed to kill anyone that they see with anything that MIGHT LOOK like a gun. That way no one will take one outside or they will be killed.
      The police officer that killed that child should be charged and convicted of first degree, premeditated murder because, when he got out of his car it was with the intention of killing the child, as he was taught to do.

      • homegirl

        California has a law AGAINST open carry. This law came about when Reagan was Gov.,When Black Panthers, marched on the Capitol in Sacramento with rifles slung over their shoulders.
        The death of this young person has caused a great deal of concern in the community and the officer suffered no consequences and is back on the street.

        • b4k9zp

          California’s law against open carry, like all its “gun control” laws, are intended only for controlling the people, not for controlling crime. As such, they are all flatly and completely unconstitutional. NO STATE LAW even california’s, over-rides the Constitution of the USA, which says that every individual has the constitutionally protected civil right to possess and carry arms anywhere they want to go.

    • Sam

      A black magic marker makes that orange tip disappear and makes the toy look so REAL. But I wouldn’t want to be the police officer that has to decide; Is it a real gun, or a FAKE gun. OR maybe a street hoodlum wanting to make his toy gun look so real during a robbery…..Would you want to be the cop that has to make that split second decision to not?! COMMON SENSE…

    • Mike G

      that was the kids mistake for changing it’s appearance, a sad thing.

    • b4k9zp

      True, when the police are so triggerhappy. I would bet that there were many things that made the “toy” gun less realistic, that the cops ignored.

        Loved to make the flare guns with some wood, a wooden clothespin, a rubber band (heavy duty) and some matches. Fortunately never started any serious fires with them, because the matches burned out (or were blown out) before they hit the ground.

    • JohnB

      We used to play combat when we were kids. Our neighbor gave my brother an old stripped down French (I think it was French) machine gun to play with. No busy body neighbors called the cops or panicked at the sight of a gun or something that looked like one. We were just kids having fun and staying out of our parents hair. Come to think of it we even went outside and played without adult supervision. I believe that is now a crime that could have us removed from parental custody. We were big fans of the tv show Combat. We didn’t have pop tarts back then that could be nibbled to look like guns so we were safe in that respect. We also used to have squirt guns and bb guns. All this in a suburban south California housing tract. I am happy to say that none of us turned out to be mass murderers, gang members or armed robbers. But how did we ever survive?

        • JohnB

          Never heard of King of the Hill. We played Dodge ball, but mostly at school and on asphalt to boot. The school even had a big circle painted on the asphalt just for that purpose. Every once in a while someone would fall and skin a knee or hand or something, but they would generally get up wash it off, Bactine and bandage it and continue on. No lawsuit, no national emergency, no need for disciplinary action, no weak or strong judgment calls, just live it or live with it. Is there a difference between dodge ball and dodge ball for keeps? I don’t see dodge ball as being a lilly livered game. It was just another game we all played at school during recess. We played war when we got home.

      • When I was a kid, we played violent reenactments of WWII, and the old west. We also were hunters, starting out with bows, and slingshots, then rifles and shotguns. I was always out in the woods. When I was in jr high, many of us would take our rifles to school with us, stash them in our lockers with a change of clothing in a pack. Once the last bell rang, we would change, grab our weapons, and head for the woods to hunt. We had zero school shootings ever. What has happened to our country?

          • michiganminuteman

            I gotta speak up and say alcohol is a much stronger drug than pot. I have seen more people’s lives ruined by alcohol than pot. I’m not advocating pot, especially for kids. Just trying to put things in perspective. The problem with libs is a very hard thing to understand. Undoubtadly many libs are intelegent but clueless when it comes to common sence. I was talking with a phycologist friend of mine about how a lib thinks compaired to a conservative and he explained it like this; imagine our brains are radios. Libs recieve AM and conservatives recieve FM. Take it for what it’s worth, that’s all I got.

          • MECOLE

            I agree with you that more people’s lives have been ruined by alcohol than pot, but that could be because alcohol has been legal for many years and pot is just being legalized. As more people start using pot, the more problems we will see. I don’t believe pot is any more dangerous than alcohol but as a former LEO I saw too many lives destroyed by alcohol. Only time will tell how bad it will get with pot.

            The only time I approve of marijuana is in the case of a TRUE medical need. That doesn’t include a hangnail NORMAL members!

          • b4k9zp

            What “medical” need justifies use of pot (or the active ingredient in pot–tetrahydrocannabinol? Nothing is bad enough to require the use of that drug.

          • 5live5

            I have seen some late term cancer patients helped by it where the narcotics tear up the stomach so much that they can’t eat.

          • b4k9zp

            But even NORML says that pot is no worse than alcohol. So that means legalizing pot would add another 12-15,000 dead people on the highways. Pot is a controlled substance for a reason. It affects your judgment, and your reaction time.

            These are the “hippys” of the 60s and their children at work!! And if Hanoi jane called on them to demonstrate against our service members they would.

          • David in MA

            true.
            I was told by a pot user once that he smoked the stuff because it clears out dead brain cells, I responded with: What did he think killed the dead brain cells in the first place……. he blew it off, addiction has it’s rationalizers.

          • 5live5

            “but dude it’s NATURAL!! how can something natural be bad for you”??? Goofballs 95% of them!!!

          • b4k9zp

            Yeah. Even NORML (National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws) admits that “pot is no worse than alcohol”, but alcohol kills over 30,000 people a year.

          • JohnB

            Don’t forget the psychiatrists and psychologists that prescribe all these drugs for kids that act like kids. You know, the ones that have a lot of energy to burn off but can’t because of dumbass school rules that don’t allow games with physical activity like running and dodge ball. Then they go home and sit on they’re butts drinking sodas, eating crappy junk food snacks and playing video games that make them feel invincible. I don’t remember any kids that I knew on prescription drugs when I was in school. Later on in high school the only drugs I remember were used recreationally.

        • amerall

          Liberal socialist psychoanalyzers who say it’s wrong to discipline your children. Time out’s ARE NOT DISIPLINE! Spare the rod and spoil the child! When I was being raised you used foul language, you got your mouth washed out with a bar of soap!

          • b4k9zp

            In many families if you used profanity, you got a whipping first, then you got your mouth washed out with soap.

            The Biblical admonition of “spare the rod, spoil the child” is in there for a reason, its been proven repeatedly over thousands of years that “foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child”.

      • palehorse58

        We did too. One of my friends had a springfield bolt action that the barrel was leaded and we had a bunker and all. No one called the cops. We killed a lot of Nazis and Japs. Kids today arn’t allowed to have fun anymore. The idiots want them to sit in front of the boob tube and vegetate.

        • bill

          true pale that’s the way the libtards indoctrinate the kids. BTW can’t call kids boys and girls anymore thanks to another liberal educator/.
          one of my favorite weapons was a blow gun made from a wood match stick, a needle and a plastic straw. killed a lot of flies in the barn with those. of course the small gender neutral beings today can’t use wood matchsticks or needles. we had the springfields also but the barrels weren’t plugged just bolts removed.

        • homegirl

          Actually many kids today are glued to Game boys playing death games, all of which involve guns, grenades and bombs. Keep up with the times.

          • JohnB

            And no physical activity or fresh air or interaction with other kids.

          • john dierking

            maybe the kids you know.

          • homegirl

            Just curious, when so man on this site have posted about kids now being glued to electronic games and the TV, why did you choose to respond to my post. There are dozens of stories about the ‘ Wild West and WW2″ games enjoyed by so many others on this site, why me?

          • john dierking

            did not see anyone else make the statement. “many kids today, etc.” I know well local kids are hard working, serious, ambitious, and get outside as much as they can. If it does not apply to what you said, ignore it, but I still stand by my statement. If you pay close attention, most of those comments about playing cowboys and Indians, and americans vs the Nazis or japs are from old guys that predate the present by a healthy margin. I do not think they are talking about kids today. You did. Or did I just misunderstand ?

      • b4k9zp

        Mattel sold a plastic copy of the Thompson sub machine gun with the round drum magazine in the 1950s. It had a mechanism that made a rattling sound when the trigger was pulled and was somewhat realistic (for 6-10 year olds plenty realistic). They were a lot of fun. IIRC, the end of the barrel was solid, so it obviously could not be fired. It also only weighed about 2.5 pounds or so, so was not really very realistic. Think they made them up until about 1970 or so.

        You’re correct that we didn’t have “Pop Tarts” that could be nibbled to look like guns. We did have “Animal Crackers” that could be nibbled into the shape of a “very small” gun, if one was creative. (Most kids went ahead and at the whole animal cracker, though)

        Combat, with Earl Morrow and Rick Jason, was one of the great series of all time. Better than the “We Were Brothers” series that was on HBO a few years ago.

        • JohnB

          I remember those Thompsons. Combat starred Vic Morrow and Rick Jason. I think it was Vic that got whacked and killed by the helicopter blade while filming the twilight Zone movie.

I started playing with toy guns 70 years ago. None of us that did this went out and hurt anyone with a gun. These Atlantic City morons need to be removed form the city council and then moved yo a “gun free” country. Their is a lot to choose from, Mexica, North Korea, all of europe and Russia, most African countries, and most far Eastern countries. These 2 need to move to one of these countries and by happy and leave the rest of us free from there mental insanity.

        I’m 76 yr. My dad gave me a Barlow pocket Knive when I was 10yr, and I still carry it in my pocket.

        • 5live5

          In some cities, if it has a blade over 2 1/2 inches long it is considered a concealed weapon. Isn’t THAT screwy???

          • b4k9zp

            In some STATES, a knife with a blade more than two inches long is a concealed weapon!

          • 5live5

            That’s the basic statement of my post. What 10 year olds used to carry is now an illegal weapon!!

        • b4k9zp

          I got a Boy Scout knife when I was in Cub Scouts (8-9) and carried it for many years. Nearly cut my thumb off one time with it. Kept it sharp too! (My dad told me that a “dull knife” was the most unsafe tool in existence, right along with an “unloaded gun”.

      • b4k9zp

        Good nickname for the ACLU. They also deserve the epithet American Communist Lawyers Union, since they were founded by a Communist and most of their early (1920s and 1930s cases involved the Communist Party USA. One of their first big victories was in the Supreme Court in the Skokie Illinois case where they defended the American Nazi Party’s right to stage a parade in a Jewish neighborhood after WW Two.

        A not so funny thing about the ACLU is that they have ALWAYS opposed the individual’s right to keep and bear arms, and supported the government’s non-existent power to restrict the kinds of “arms” that a citizen can possess and carry. The New Orleans “chapter” (?) of ACLU did join the SAF and NRA Civil Rights Foundation in suing the New Orleans city government for the return of the guns stolen from citizens after Katrina, but they did NOT do so because of the violation of the 2nd amendment, but because the government had violated the citizens’ fifth amendment right not to be deprived of their property (firearms) without due process and without just compensation (which is admittedly true).

More education is needed at all levels- every citizen should be grounded in basic facts about Constitutional government and the duties of free men and women in a republic like ours. Remember that “We The People” have the power, but we must use it or lose it. Be informed, be active, and, most important, VOTE-support those candidates who represent the true values of republican(small “r”) government as stated by the Founders at the beginning of the nation. Those values and principles still hold true today. and must be the light that guides us out of the dark swamp of socialism and statism where we are mired courtesy of the Obama-Reed-Bloomberg “axis of evil”.

      Most criminals at least obey some laws at least most of the time, as did Whitey Bolger. They have business hours and off duty hours and they just want to blend in. Can you really tell a criminal from a non-criminal with any certainty. In a discussion at my 50th HS reunion, all of those present agreed that if we had been caught for something that was illegal while we were in HS that we would all have records. Now, with all the BS, at any time, at least 10% of the drivers on the road are either over the alcohol limit or using illegal drugs, so if they caught all of them, there would be almost no traffic on the highways.

      • chilitom

        It is because some people, fools who let their kids run wild at all hours and as a result the kids perished, cannot accept the tragedy is on them; their fault. So they enforce politically correct specious blood alcohol limits and as a result 2 beers make you a violator. We let public policy default to the fools, officials and criminals and then complain about how we are forced to live. We must be more active in school boards, in town hall and at the polls or we will lose our freedoms with only ourselves to blame.

      • acs1949

        Don’t forget that Whitey Bulger had all his good buddies in the FBI doing a lot of his dirty work. High-ranking crime bosses of the Bulger or Gotti stamp have underlings who do their bidding when anything messy needs doing. I believe the quote from the scene at the Congressional mob hearings in “Godfather II” was, “Yeah, we got a whole lotta ‘buffers'”-or something to that effect. all those “buffers” enable these criminals to pose as “respectable businessmen” in their everyday lives. Come to think of it, our esteemed president and his crew must have “a WHOLE LOTTA ‘buffers'” -emphasis added by me. Think about it….

      When I was a kid in the 1960s, I had a VERY REALISTIC looking toy M-14, and I never got shot for having it. But at that time, I could also take it to SCHOOL for “Show and Tell”, and nobody wet their pants. And it wasn’t made out of Pop Tarts.

      • Kent2012

        we are dealing with the full blown effort at the “pu$$ification of America”……..

        • Tec Sg Beatty

          Bingo! But my kids and grandkids were/are/will be properly trained with weapons.

      • Alexandre Peshansky

        I bet you did not point it at armed police in dangerous neighborhood, right?
        Police is being trounced for shooting “unarmed teenagers” – these nice 300 lb 6+ feet “kids” pointing guns at them. They don’t want to find later that the guns were fake.
        I, personally, believe that the ordinance is misguided, and any aforementioned idiot deserves to be shot – I was against painting the idiot city council as being against guns in general.

        • Tec Sg Beatty

          Back in the day, the cops weren’t a military force with an “us vs. them” attitude.

        • b4k9zp

          “Police is [sic] being trounced for shooting….” should read “Policemen are being trounced….”

      • Roger12266

        When I was in school in the late 50s and early 60s, I and most of my friends took our shotguns and .22s to school, kept them in our locker and went hunting after school.
        Astoundingly, there was NEVER a firearms incident in school.

        • Tec Sg Beatty

          Same here. Took my 16 gauge and kept it in my locker, with ammo. No big deal. Now, if you take a PICTURE of a firearm, here comes SWAT.

    • Frank Hartzell

      that’s why they suspend a 8 year old for pretending.You’re a ass.

    • Roger12266

      How about a little education of the police officers? How about teach them that a ten year old walking down the street with a toy gun is NOT a Muslim terrorist to be shot to death BEFORE being questioned?

      • Mike G

        when was the last time a 10 year old was shot by a cop with a toy gun.. Does this have anything to do with Missouri? where 2 thugs , one armed with a real gun got shot?? They were nice polite little boys. wake up Roger.

    • jillocity

      how many bright green and bright orange squirt guns are the not-too-bright “officers” going to mistake for “real” guns? well, in AC, maybe quite a few

  • WiSe GuY

    Ban knives next, then cut off children’s hands so they can’t fight, sew their mouth’s shut so they can’t say anything politically incorrect, ban all solid foods that can be eaten into a form of a gun, brainwash all children to be little sissies.

        They’re already working on that. What with the banning of contact above the shoulder pads, and so on.

      I know you are being sarcastic, but is it so very far from what liberal statists really seem to want?

  • Frank Hartzell

    when I was a kid, we made toy guns to play with,teach yors’ how to and the idiots be damned.

    • Roger12266

      We made wooden guns that shot rubber bands.

      • b4k9zp

        or matchsticks. Or we made slingshots out of wood and rubber bands. and used rocks or bbs as ammunition.

  • Ted Doorn

    It just goes to show HOW STUPID the MORONS in POWER ARE. ESPECIALLY IN NEW JERSEY. They are JUST TOOOOOOO STUPID TO BE INTELLIGENT. MORONS.

  • wdcraftr

    But watching Police walk around everywhere now with body armor, and assault weapons is OK? LOL!

    • Frank Hartzell

      Sure they can’t shoot people,if little Johnny down the street kills them with his Matell plastic pistol.”Thatss bright orange”[ just like what gun I don’t know,and my dad was a gunsmith so I’ve seen a lot of guns.]So yes they need body armor not just vests.

      • b4k9zp

        How can “johnny kill them with his “Mattel” plastic gun, which cannot be made to shoot live ammunition? Just curious.

        • Frank Hartzell

          they need flack jackets,why? Banning TOY guns.Look at the photo above you need what to potect yourself from it.it”s sarcasium.

  • 2ThinkN_Do2

    There may be a need to regulate the manufacture, as society has become too irresponsible; but there is not need to ban. Maybe no toy guns should be allowed to be made to look anywhere near realistic, size, shape, color. Maybe Real Guns should not be allowed to look like toy guns, size, shape, color. Maybe life has just become too FAST, Greed and Desire have turned society into a cesspool of Fear, Crime, Hate, Abuse and we just cannot ever have enough of anything. No time to parent, to have fun, to enjoy life, like many of us did as children. We have created the mess we are in, we need to undo it. What has changed so drastically in the past 20, 40, 60 plus years? What would you change if you could?

    • Frank Hartzell

      THE FU*$TARDS THAT THINK THEY RUN THINGS.That’s not necccaraly,always the gov.

    • Roger12266

      I use toy guns in my firearms safety classes where I start children at the age of 5. Should I give the 5 year old children real guns so that they become accustomed to the shape, feel and sight picture of a real gun instead of allowing them to attain these skills with a toy?

      • 2ThinkN_Do2

        Personally, I would say yes; they should be using real guns designed for training purposes. The difference between a Toy and Real should be part of the Training.

  • Jarhead

    OMG, next these retards will want to outlaw baseball bats, steak knives, screw drivers, even automobiles…..don’t they have any family, friends, or concerned neighbors that can get them committed to a mental hospital? Probably not, anyone with an IQ over 60 would not associate with such queer freaks.

    Don’t you see. We, the people, are too irresponsible to make decisions for ourselves. Somebody in authority has to make decisions for us to protect us from ourselves.
    Recently a young child died from a fall from a swing. Very soon now, the authorities will decide to remove swings from playgrounds and ban them from private ownership because the rest of us are too stupid to see how dangerous they can be.

      There have been swing regulations passed over the years. Soon they will all have restraining systems to prevent falling and also whiplash.

  • jrogersp

    Now I don’t know if I read this right or the writer just wrote it incorrectly, It says,
    “possession or use of any imitation firearms — except for non-firing
    antiques and film prop guns — which aren’t in bright, fluorescent colors
    or transparent. Pistols that use metal caps are banned from being sold
    to minors.” The last sentence makes me think that the writer meant that Toy Guns that are NOT in Bright fluorescent or transparent are the one’s banned, but if they are Bright fluorescent or transparent then they can be sold and possessed. Does anyone else seeit this way? He/She made their point really confusing, on Purpose maybe?

  • Sgt. York

    Its too do teach kids to obey laws,like holder and ovomlt do.lol if you do that kids will lie and bend the laws.This is more liberal crap we the people have to live with. Three kids ,fifty years later and all sorts of guns and no one shot.Cops now think they are little gods wanting kids to do as they say not what there parents.Were going to hell in a liberal handbasket

    Common sense, you Ask? What common sense? Any common sense that ever lived has been ridiculed, scorned, accused, disowned and absolutely murdered by the progs (aka commies, marxists, socialist statist posers) all within the schools and in the Halls of Congress! Common sense finally passed away about 40 years ago. RIP.

  • LittleMoose

    I wonder how much the City Council of Atlantic City is being paid to do this. There is only one group of people who would benefit from the eventual confiscation of firearms and that is the Federal Government. The Founding Fathers had the right idea. People like Thomas Jefferson had it right when he said, “For a people who are free, and who means to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security”. Remember in the late 1700’s in America a militia meant the people and the Founding Fathers were concerned about eventual tyranny of our own government.

  • Daniel W

    What do you expect from these people, they are out to destroy our American heritage. They are also trying to obliterate Americans knowledge of there Second Amendment rights; to keep and bear arms. When they teach the children about the Second Amendment. they always leave out the paragraph that states the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    • avlisk

      It’s worse. The website, whitehouse.gov says: The 2nd Amendment GIVES citizens the right to bear arms. It says nothing more about infringement, or keeping, or securing a free state, or the fact that it protects our natural, god given, civil right. Aren’t they a benevolent government, allowing us to bear arms!

      • Daniel W

        Like all liberals, they failed to mention the last sentence of the second amendment. What part of the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed don’t they understand.

        • b4k9zp

          actually, it’s the last clause of the 2nd amendment, which only contains a single sentence: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” One sentence. Not two.

          The libs want to say that because of the well regulated militia clause, government has the power to regulate, limit and infringe on a right the last half of the sentence clearly states shall not be limited, regulated or infringed.

  • Scarlett

    The kids today have grown up with hoodlums in their school and classes.We did not have that in my day.When they grow up with it,chances are,they are going to go along with it.We should never have allowed it in our schools.The children have been brainwashed and it’s exactly what the state wanted to happen.Its the destruction of our way of life , our families,decency and morality,everything we loved and held dear.They are destroying it and obama has led the way.If he stays and has ultimate power for two more years,it is going to be really bad.The first black president.This is what we get( disclaimer:I did not vote for him-ever) P.S my kids were homeschooled are are perfectly normal,taught by me.They have good jobs now.Someone I know did not do this, their kids call them a racist now,taught by public schools.

    • Frank Hartzell

      Odumbo did not start it but “it” is pushing it harder then anyone else.Put the pledge of aliedgence back in schools put prayer back in school,give the teachers the right to punish again,kids don’t need the right to sue people,teach them how,not just let them try to figure it out by themselves,cause if you don’t people like OBAMA WILL……

      • Scarlett

        I have seen a rapid downfall of our country,morals and way of life since obama.If he didn’t start it,he sure took the ball and ran with it.Just wait till after the elections next month-if he makes all the illegal criminals legal.Our taxes will explode and everything is going down fast.

        • Mike G

          there are still millions of people getting “free stuff” and voters with IQ’s under 50 to re-elect these liberal moron creeps.

            Yes,you only find out for sure about it when they blow the whistle on them.They complain that they complied with the terms of the bribe, and got duped.The last I heard was blacks saying they voted democrat because they were told Republicans were racist and the blacks were promised 15.00 a piece? They voted but got duped out of payment,so of course,then they blew the whistle.They should have all been arrested.

      To liberal morons the teacher must “deal with” the hoodlums, but can not embarris them, restrict them, or makr them stand in the corner. Hitting them with a paddle would end up with lawsuits. The paddle worked great in my grade school. One common factor about left-wingers, if a process, like public school, is working well they change it. If a process does not work as well as it did before their change, then they regard that as PROGRESS. They are being PROGRESSIVE. Not really. They are being REGRESSIVE, and they like it.

    how would they enforce such a retarded law?the corrupt cops see a kid in his own yard playing with an airsoft and the cops come in and arrest the kid on posetion of a fire arm?(oh wait,they do that already,and even shoot the kids,even killed one already)so they want this law to be able to arrest kids?is it a felony or a missdermenor?are the parents arrested if the kid has one?this is just the most retarded thing ive heard these liberal morons do!jeez…..this is going to be a nightmare,just watch and see!innocent children are going to die!!

    Geez I remember wearing a surplus WWII helmet camo BDUs and I had a home made Thompson the neighbor kids and I played combat,every day no one called the cops hell parents gave us pointers on defense and attack strategy.

        • Dagonet

          You didn’t get it did you? I am not for banning toy guns. Was I making a joke, yes. What did I want you to see? I wanted you to see another side of how ****** up these people are. Compliments of the US Army, I was taught, “Know your enemy.” I’m a disabled combat vet. As far as knowing what I’m talking about… At the age of 11-12, just to my east a little ways, a young Texan (not far from me here in DFW) named Audie Murphy was very good at killing small game with his rifle. He had to be because he had to help feed his younger siblings when his father ran off. He was educated to guns, responsible, and unafraid, as were his younger siblings. If you have time, take a quick look at who Murphy was and what he did in the military. S C Gwynne wrote about another famous “Texan”, who lived not far from here, just to my west-southwest, named Quanah Parker. This man was a Comanche chief son to Peta Nocona and his white mother Cynthia Ann Parker. Gwynne tells us that the Comanche was a “warrior nation”, and young braves started their training at the age of five. By the time they were ten, they were very skilled trackers, and hunters and even had a horse of their own that they cared for (kids now a days can’t drive until they’re sixteen, right?). My point is this, even young kids can be taught responsibility and they CAN handle it, it has been documented, it has been proven these **** heads who want to take away our guns need a good @@@ kicking. That’s about all I can think of right now as to how to start to educate to turn these people around. I think some of them are just too far gone and never see what or accept what is already proven, what is right in front of them. Don’t expect an apology from me.

          • cotton

            I knew we were talking for the same thing, while you commented back with a DUH, sounded back asswards to me, that when I said, PULL YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS, I Said this because, we were talking the sameway about this, sounded like you were agains’t my comment! What if I would have came back at you with a DUH? And I’m not so stupid that I need your assistance to figure them out!

    This isn’t about public safety. It’s about mind control. Atlantic City officials need to dominate youthful minds now in order to garner their votes later. It’s part of the communist playbook. Hollywood better wake up because toy guns on the big screen are no different than toy guns in the back yard. Marsh & Tibbitt cavalierly suggest that this stupid idea may save lives but stupidly offer no data to back up this obvious lie. Get ’em conservatives. They need to be kicked to the gutter where all communists belong.

  • disqus_YVFPO5iQUB

    Since they can’t take away the second amendment they are going after toy guns so children have nothing to do with guns. Guess it is time to teach children about guns and let them shoot the real thing so they know just what a real gun will do. Just like we were taught when we were children 50 years ago. If this keeps up there will be nothing for children to play with except there stupid computers. Next the governments will get rid of all games on that which might not be such a bad idea

    • Dagonet

      How many times do we adults tell kids not to do something knowing damn well we still need to keep at lest one eye on them? How is this NOT going to make kids more curious, does this not have the potential to drive them towards mischief?

      It was a good series for the first season and a half, started to become a bit corny, but certainly a message worth paying attention to. Jericho was another series that was cancelled (about 6 years ago) and was delivering a similar message, slightly different but not all together.

        • The PsyOp Exorcist

          Yeah, it shows in detail how our constitutional rights have been incrementally taken away from us by Bush and eviscerated a hundred times more by Obola.

          “President Reagan appointed Dr. Roberts Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and he was confirmed in office by the U.S. Senate.”

          • b4k9zp

            Started long before either Bush was in office, FDR signed the National Firearms Acts of 1934 and 1938, two extremely racist and unconstitutional laws that made possession of “class three destructive devices” (fully-automatic weapons, short-barreled rifles and shotguns, silencers (sound suppressors), and similar things extremely expensive to buy and the process for getting them extremely onerous. The purpose of both laws was, as the democrats in both the House and Senate were recorded in the Congressional Record as saying: “to keep Sicilian and Italian and “n-word” [the one that rhymes with “trigger”] gangsters from having those weapons [even though a silencer/sound suppressor itself is not a weapon of any kind]. LBJ signed the unconstitutional and also highly racist Gun Control Act of 1968 into law, and the democrats who argued for its approval in both house and senate again stated the law was needed to keep “n-word” gangs like the black panthers from getting guns so easily.

            Democrats have been passing unconstitutional laws to control the people ever since the 1930s.

          • The PsyOp Exorcist

      Yea John! I have no idea how these liberals came up with the idea that the majority doesn’t rule! Our voting system is set up to reflect the will of the MAJORITY! Not the will of a minority. (Except of course in the instance of the electoral college which is severely outdated and no longer relevant) it should be abolished, with today’s technology of instant communication it no longer serves a purpose. The constitution guarantees minorities the right not to be molested or oppressed. IT DOES NOT GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO INFLICT THEIR AGENDAS ON THE MAJORITY! The constitution, contrary to the belief of people who feel “constrained” by it is more relevant now that it was when it was written! NOTHING IN IT EVER GOES OUT OF DATE!

    However, I think that it is really stupid to carry an empty gun….AND…having a toy guy that is a very close model of a real weapon, is akin to carrying an empty paper weight. Yes..most criminals are stupid or they wouldn’t be trying to make a living robbing 7-11 stores and such.

  • Thomas Cole

    Since we don’t want to actually educate people, since we don’t want to actually look at what is causing the violence, since we want to try and push laws that Americans do not want and since some idiot came up with this grand idea that children who play with toy guns will grow up to be gun owners, we will ban toy guns. Yes I know, that was more than one sentence, keep your grammar comments to yourself. This is a stupid idea, I played doctor with all the neighbor girls when I was a kid, and I did not grow up to be a gynecologist. I had a telescope and I did not grow up to be an astronaut or an astronomer. I played with toy guns and shot real ones and still I have never killed anyone.

Most kids today are more interested with playing with brooms playing Quid-itch instead of learning the proper use of firearms, while in Russia they teach 14 y/o’s how to shoot (for real!) AK-47s.

    The Second Amendment of the Constitution says that the”right to bear and keep arms shall NOT be infringed. ” What this amendment says is that ANY law, regulation, or ordinance that stifles the ability of legal, sane citizens of this country to buy, carry, or keep firearms is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, therefore ILLEGAL. Hey, if you gun hating boneheads want to control guns then use the methods (2) to change the Constitution, or STFU! First you busybodies eliminate tag, dodgeball, monkeybars and all the fun things of childhood now toy guns? Get a life!

    • b4k9zp

      even changing the second amendment will do no good, for the right of the people to keep and bear arms does not depend on the existence of the 2nd amendment for its existence and never has. It existed before either the constitution or the bill of rights were ever written, and will exist even if both are repealed.

    There are lots of very realistic looking toy guns for sale, 32 inch AK47, 12.5 inch Police Pistol with silencer and target scope, a 30 inch hunting rifle with ejecting shotgun shells, a 30 inch double barrel shotgun, a 30 inch pump action shotgun, a 31 inch rapid fire machine gun, a Parris 44 Magnum, an M16, an MP5, an M9 Beretta 9mm pistol and a 22 inch rapid fire machine gun on Amazon.com today.

  • milmac

    Criminals don’t use toy guns, so why the ban. Criminals do use real guns but that does not mean they should be banned. It means that our law enforcement officers should be finding the criminals and locking the criminals asses up. Our 2nd Amendment gives the law abiding citizen the right to “bear arms,” but it does not give the criminals the same right. If anyone can find in the Constitution where it says criminals have the right, please let me know. Criminals lose their rights when they become felons, and the loss is not disenfranchisement, because they have violated the law. The law should not respect the crook if the crook has not respected the law.

    • b4k9zp

      wrong, milmac. The second amendment does not give anyone any rights. It PROTECTS the God-given, unalienable right to posses and carry the same arms used by the police and military of the time, if better ones are not available, against the actions of any entity, whether in government or as an individual or group of individuals. Remember that the Democratic party used its Ku Klux Klan for nearly a hundred years to keep blacks and other minorities from having firearms in their possession. After the KKK was decimated by the Civil Rights lawsuits in the 1960s and 1970s, the Democrats turned to increasingly restrictive laws to accomplish the same thing–to keep blacks and other minorities from having firearms in their possession legally.

      • Steve Donner

        Stop with the god given talk. This has nothing to do with God. Make your constitutional argument but leave god out of it.

  • The second amendment the right of bear arms does not specify for adults or kids so adults get to bear real arms and kids get to bear toy arms. What is this more and more laws infringing on our freedom? The police officers are there for a reason to catch the criminal. Let them do their job instead of getting rid of everything.

    They just violated the ninth amendment. If the City of Atanta accept this ordinance, they are complacent fools who like to have the government runs their lives. The citizens in Atlanta should make it very clear that the Council membeers work for them and they will not tolerate this dictatorial manner. Did anyone of them have atown hall meeting regarding this ordinance. The City Council usually meet when it is difficult for the city residents to attend. This should have been voted on by the residents. I do not know whow many council men/women there are in Atlanta, but the 100% agreement is hard to believe. Since whendid playing with a toy gun result in a criminal using a firearm to commit a crime. Pretty soon this overbearing dictatorial coucil wil ban all movies and TV shows that have guns in the.I can only hope that the citizens raise up and demand that the ordinance be stricken from the books and/or have these council members be put out of office for not doing what they are supposed to do act on positive issues that comply with the wants of the peope.

Never to the best of my understanding, but the problem is I’m referring to the legal term of child abuse and I suspect that you may believe that Pro-Life has a different definition. I do accept the right of others to interpret Planned Parenthood in whatever manner they seem best for their needs. With the caveat that it is legal according to American Law. To be honest with you if it’s the difference between my kids using condoms or street drugs you can guess my thoughts and it’s not along the drugs line.

            I can certainly see that you have strong views regarding Planned Parenthood and I guess due to our politicians, past and present you have every right to take that view. Thankfully I have the same right. That what’s makes for progress, different views. You may find that some of your views are indeed fairly valid but at the same time some are not. It can’t be 100% right just because you say so or believe so. Zealots have very strong views, very emotional over their views with an overwhelming believe that their view is the only correct way to go. The difficulty is that Zealots find it difficult to see it from another person’s point of view unless it supports theirs, which can lead to stagnation. To give you an example you try to link Planned Parenthood’s education and support with child pornography, child abuse, drug and alcohol abuse. This is rubbish, just what a Zealot would try. You try and justify the statement by stating I can check the statistics. I have, I used our local Social Security web site and checked child abuse statistics, I checked with our local family court and checked their public records. very few regarding children but there was some statistics. I then searched the National CASA web site and finally checked out the records of a GAL organization, of which I am a member. I do accept that you have the right to your views and to be honest I applaud your enthusiasm but you really do need to allow yourself the freedom, the movement to look at other points of view. Remember at one time the greatest thinkers in our world believed and could prove the world was flat, but one day some fool said it was round. Guess what? Yes everyone can be wrong, have the wrong view or understanding even me. Good luck

          • SPOOK’S SPOOK

            “Zealot” huh? An interesting word to say the least. Obviously
            you don’t know the true meaning and history of the word “Zealot”. That is unless
            you’re calling me a “fanatic”, in which case I hope that’s not the case, for
            that could be considered libelous. An opinion without sound facts to back it up
            is nothing more than an ideology, which is a form of zealotry in itself. But
            I’ll let that slide for the moment. Let me give you a little unsolicited advice
            if I may. In the future, if you feel you must call someone a zealot do so with
            this in mind. Zealot spelled with a capital “Z” makes you appear to be an
            anti-Semite and bigot. Going by your rant I could tell that you weren’t literate
            enough to know the difference. I’m not quite sure if you were saying that I was
            being overly zealous in most everything I said or that I struck some nerve
            in particular. Evidently something set you off or you wouldn’t have attacked me
            with such a harsh word as “Zealot”, and improperly I might add. Everything I
            said was factual. Everything I said was of morally sound principles. And
            everything I said can be backed up with scientific statistical data and
            repeatable evidence. Not to mention rooted in the spirit, if not the body of the
            Constitution.

            You can pick and choose who or what you wish to believe, and
            the same holds true when picking news sources, like for example CNN and
            MSNBC for an unbiased opinion on the political scene. I wouldn’t recommend
            either one, by the way, because they are anything but unbiased. They’re both
            full of crap and shills for the Demonicratic Party and Obola in particular who
            tries to deflect everything instead of doing the honorable thing and admitting
            that his policies over the past six years are the source of most of the ills
            this nation has experienced. Now before you bite my head off like you’re so apt
            to do, let me say that I’m an Independent Moderate, believe it or not, and I
            think that Fox News and the rest of the MSM aren’t much better. However, it’s
            your problem if you can’t handle the truth wherever or whoever it may come from.
            Discernment is the key to the truth. It’s like a computer program, garbage in =
            garbage out! The same holds true for the Human mind. You can
            disregard everything I say but you’ll still be lost in the same old boat without
            a paddle.

            If you were saying that I was being zealous in a political sense
            you would be incorrect. I was only being constitutionally accurate. And if
            you’re having a problem with me reporting the heinous activities of Planned
            Parenthood only because you “Believe” it’s legal which makes it ok for grown
            adult strangers to have intimate conversations with children, then you have a
            problem with distinguishing between what is morally right and wrong. Now I don’t
            have a dog in this fight other than the fact that organizations such as Planned
            Parenthood are legally stealing tax dollars to do things that I and millions of
            others believe to be morally repugnant and basically evil. Planned Parenthood
            isn’t happy with just perverting the minds of living children, they take their
            disgusting activities to a level that’s nothing short of legalized murder with
            abortion. I know, you’re going to say, “But the Supreme Court said it’s ok”, and
            my answer to that is, “The Judges on the Supreme Court were not Scientist when
            that ruling was made and that it was politically biased and done without any
            sound or definitive scientific foundation or consideration.”

            Let me qualify that statement. When you consider that life
            begins at conception (which has been scientifically proven), and the fact that
            no one as yet has been able to prove when a person’s life begins (scientifically
            speaking), then as a nation founded on morals and human rights we should err on
            the side caution and with the defenseless pre-born person, not allowing abortion
            on demand just for the convenience of a self-centered and selfish individual and
            at the expense of the tax payer. That may be my opinion but it’s founded on an
            observation from a Scientific and Constitutional viewpoint. When you let your
            emotions get involved they tend to cloud the issues. I believe that my belief in
            the Right-to-Life has been the source of your angst all along, but bare in mind
            that I’m just the messenger delivering an unsavory truth. After all if it were
            to be proven that a person’s life begins at conception then there would be
            literally over a hundred million people guilty of murder when you count the
            mother, the abortion doctor, the assisting nurse or nurses, along with the
            staff who would be guilty of complicity to commit murder. Well, we can’t have
            that inconvenient little truth come out, now can we? Kind of like the HOAX of
            Global Warming, don’t you think? Nobody wants to hear the truth if it doesn’t
            bode well for their ideology.

            So go ahead and call me a “Zealot”, I don’t care, because you’re
            unqualified opinion and determination to ignore the facts has only proven that
            you’re full of yourself and part of the problem rather than part of the
            solution. Just remember, opinions without substance are like @$$holes. Everyone
            has one and they all stink! May the light of truth shine upon your life and set
            you free.

    I know that it is unlikely to happen especially at this time of year with stores already having Christmas displays up in the stores however; were I a manufacturer who’s products were prohibited under this ban I would pull all of my merchandise from stores within the area covered by the ban. If a major manufacture such as Mattel or Hasbro or both were to pull their products or even threaten to I do believe that the local merchants might suddenly find that their bottom line was more important than the city’s attempt at social engineering. I don’t really expect that to happen but it is a thought. And if little Susie wants a Barbie I am certain that there are places close enough that will still be happy to sell mommy and daddy what they need and still give brother Billy his cap guns or water pistols without a background check. ofcourse this is Jersey so it would be easyer for him to pick up a real Glock or mac 10 on any street corner.

          You see I must ask these questions because you don’t identify any group. I mean you could be speaking about ISIS then I certainly would wholeheartedly agree. You may be trying to identify those who may promote some form of gun control. I have seen some of these toy guns and when in an area where children are used to cause as much confusion as possible are very realistic. I sure you not talking about this type of situation. You talk about the “mentally ill” minority dictating… but don’t offer any evidence. You know health notes showing a person’s mental state and how this person had dictated the views of others. You see I could take it that maybe your the mentally ill minority trying to dictate what I believe and I’m sure you don’t mean that. So you see unless you make yourself a little more clear it is very difficult to understand just what your message is. I just heard a definition of insanity and it went something like this, “The act of saying the same meaningless thing over and over with no explanation of what is being said.”

          Parental what! Many Parents don’t seem to be able to stop their kids from all the illegal activities currently being carried on, never mind some of the more dangerous activities that may not be illegal but certainly are stupid. Like allowing a child to have an imitation gun that looks so much like a real one then expecting a Police Officer to recognize the difference in a split second. I also believe stupidity is contagious so I hope that’s a face mask your wearing in your photo.

          • MASTERMECH

            Oh emotional one, Why the personal attack on my looks??? What you or I physically represent has NO relevance to the subject matter of TOY GUNS. If you cannot stay on subject, I shall say, check on e-bay, order a few years of “attention span” and a case of maturity. Parts of your discussion were rather interesting. Whether I agree or not does not matter and by no means would justify a personal attack. I personally could give a shit if you do not like my photo, you are allowed your opinion. Keep on subject, you will someday master proper communications, good luck!

          • Disinchanted

            Thank you for the good luck wishes and I wasn’t or didn’t intend to personally attack your appearance just your thought pattern. To believe that parents know where their children are and what they are up to is extremely naive. At least someone is taking seriously the dangers that could lie ahead especially in the violent culture we find ourselves in today. You brought upon yourself my sarcastic comment because of the silly statement you made at the beginning.

            ” Obviously you may not interface with children that much.” I am a retired school teacher, I took early retirement having taught 12 – 18 year olds. I then trained and became a paramedic for the approx 14 years. I was 54 when I joined the EMS service and currently am involved with child advocacy. So to assume that I have little or no dealing with children is wrong. I have seen them at play, patched them up from that play and speak on their behalves when those that are supposed to be their role models fall apart. My thought to you was that when someone tries to improve ones life don’t just put them down because they don’t quite agree with you. Anyway good luck to yourself. By the way your opening statements are perfectly true, I am rather emotional when it comes to the necessary lose of life especially at and young age. Recent news is testament to that.

          • MASTERMECH

            “I am rather emotional when it comes to the necessary lose of life especially at a young age.” Your statement is my reality. I have been with that situation when a 7/8 year old comes from the bush area to “give” you an armed explosive, it is real, just not very pretty. What today’s terrorists do is not new just better publicized. It is one of those things that AMERICA will have to come to know. I also taught for a few periods in my naval carrier, both enlisted and officer. Even got a designation as “Master Training Specialist”. I spent 25 years with the Navy and retired as a Lieutenant Commander [LDO engineering]. Due to my life exposures my “thought pattern” is never in the conventional BOX. I do actually come in contact with kids, some even smarter than the “parent”. Parental supervision I actually list in the WTF area as is seems long gone.. Take care Mate! R, JOHN

    • Disinchanted

      Not sure I understand your comments. Are you saying we should ban them from children, if so I agree sadly. Nowadays the police, supposed to be the good guys will shoot you then check to see if the gun is real or not, or weather you are carrying a weapon or not. At least criminal admit they’re bad guys and don’t hide behind a badge. I very much doubt that many of those hoping for gun control are cowards. Probably “realistic” would have been a better word. Eventually we must try and control our violent nature and try and think of alternatives rather than killing. Criminal are just products of the overall American thought process, but to an uncontrolled extreme. I believe that the day will come when all weapons must be registered, that the death penalty will end, and life will be safer. Remember all countries in the world have gone through te same thought process as America, some are still doing it. Most civilized Western Countries have now grown up, shed the toys of our youth and taken on the mantle of wisdom. All we have to do is let America grown up and stop putting obstacles in it’s way. Don’t you agree?

  • Frick

    Boy that ought to take a HUGE bite out of crime!!!

  • Disinchanted

    At last. Police don’t have time to make unnecessary decisions, in fact they seem t have lost control of their own weapons. Shooting s supposed to be the final response not the first. It should be impossible to use fatal force on an unarmed person, good bad or indifferent. If our trained Police Officers can’t control their use of arms I’m damn sure the general public can’t especially hunters who are used to killing. I’ve heard and read from citizen commits the foolish reactions, such as “nobody going to tell me what to do. I’ll blow their heads off.” What do you really believe this person has the right frame of mind to own a weapon. Even the Police are not better. We have now developed the wrong thought patterns to allow weapons in the general public’s hand and the public to be safe. I am 69 years old and never been threatened by the use of a gun. I live in a fairly violent area which is rural. Don’t start being stuppid about my comments, try and offer some provable comments. I believe that taking children on hunting sessions should be criminal, why insensitive killing by allowing children to watch the death of a once living creature. The more death one witnesses the easy it becomes to witness. Following steps then become easier. I do believe in gun control, I also believe in our right to bear arms. What I’m against is the complacency most seem to have to the use of violence, and I’m not talking about the criminal element. If all guns were banned in the USA criminals would still kill using chains, knifes, bricks, fists, knees and anything else at hand. So that nobody goes over the top I am a gun owner and practice on a monthly basis. I am an ex Military Police member who has served in a war zone. I believe the biggest fool is the fool that sees no danger in the uncontrolled use of weapons.

  • lha

    What these sickos are setting up is a generation of scairdy-cats who are afraid of guns,even when they’re not real. I worked as an assistant hunting guide on a huge hunting ranch where Yankees came to be cowboys. These guys didn’t even know which end of the gun was the barrel! My job at some point was to train them in handling rifles in a safe manner. Some of these times,if the guns were loaded.someone would have been hurt or killed. Of course,some Northerners are great hunters,and practice good,safe practices,but many that are raised in “gun-free zones” have no idea how to act around guns.My two children,from the age of 4 or 5 were familiar with guns and fired them often. They also knew that the ONE rule was that NO one touches the guns without me. The guns were unloaded and the ammo was kept separately. They both enjoyed frequently shooting in our rural back yard,with adequate backboards. Both of them like myself are comfortable with guns,but aware of their surroundings and safe handling practices. I believe this is better than raising kids with no idea about safe handling,and also believe this is the cause of many”accidents”.

  • amerall

    Especially when my parents, teachers, and role models were member’s of the “GREATEST GENERATION” Because of their love and caring they gave discipline. Because of their use of the rod and strict interest in seeing to it I learned SELF CONTROL, my generation was able to enjoy the late fifty’s and early sixties, the greatest time ever to grow up. Show’s how great the ideas of modern liberals are doesn’t it, mass school shootings undisciplined school students enjoying unlimited right’s to disrupt class’es sue teachers who embarrass them or try to stop them from stealing an education from others who actually want to learn. so their feeling’s aren’t hurt by insensitively disciplining their uncontrolled outbursts, no respect for anyone or anything because their pot smoking, glue sniffing, crack smoking, Woodstock hippie parents are liberal democrats and don’t believe in self control of any kind. We had prayer in school, that’s been done since America began. No one was forced to participate but they were required to show respect for other’s by remaining quiet so others could. NO RIGHTS VIOLATED HERE! students should have one right, just like my children did! That one right was, THE RIGHT TO DO EXACTLY AS THEY WERE TOLD PRECISELY WHEN THEY WERE TOLD TO DO IT! That’s the only RIGHT students need! Children need strict discipline they are not smart enough to keep out of trouble without it, no discipline? no self control = I’m number one and if anyone makes me feel bad instead of learning from it I’ll kill somebody or myself that will teach them! Pledge of allegiance? Learned and recited everyday before class started! Respect for law enforcement officers? learned at home! Police had guns, if they told you to do something YOU DID IT IMMEDIATELY, NO ARGUMENT or they would shoot you! Cop brought you home…YOU GOT THE STRAP! Cops aren’t always right, but they are still cops, if they’re wrong there are courts that will sort it out. If they tell you to stop, you stop.. period, its not up to you to decide they’re not right at the time! Run or resist? then your guilty of something you don’t want to answer for. You deserve to be shot!

    When Whity Bolger’s FBI buddies, went down – at least one going to prison, Whitey took his money, moved from MA to CA where he lived a quiet, law abiding life for a very long time. and when he got busted, although he had guns, he did not use them. The bottom line is that it is in a criminal’s best interest is to blend in when necessary, and not even get a parking ticket for so long as possible.

  • What is this supposed to accomplish? Keeping criminals from buying toy guns? I can see there will be a new black market for toy guns opening up. Soon Obola and his new A.G. will be running toy guns into the Mexican drug cartels and the U.N. will be pushing for an International Toy Gun Treaty. Of course Obola will be signing an Executive Order, in the dead of night, on New Year’s Eve, to ban all toy guns and their ammunition.
