Perverted American Priorities

It isn’t just their ethical standards. They seem to reflect the perverted, bizarre priorities of many average Americans.
They speak to the legions of moms and dads who wouldn’t dream of letting little Johnny play with a plastic toy pistol (think of the message it sends!) but also wouldn’t dream of telling little Susie she can’t wear makeup and bikinis (she has to express herself!). We brag of our enlightened and “realistic” attitudes when we teach 10 year olds about “safe sex,” but then recoil in horror when someone suggests that we ought to teach them how to safely handle a firearm.

Your Say

I trained my son on gun safety with plastic guns. We practiced safe technique and respect for firearms. We next stepped up to the BB gun. From there to a pellet gun, on to .22 cal and now he has handled everything up to and including 7.62x54r. I guess if they ban plastic guns, fathers will have to start training their sons and daughters with the real thing.
