Posted on 02/07/2011 4:29:09 PM PST by PROCON
If Hawaiian State Rep. Scott Saiki gets his way, guns will be outlawed in Hawaii. Toy guns for kids, that is. Adults can still buy toy guns. Presumably, it is still safe to give them to children.
The bill has had its first reading and has been referred to the judiciary committee where, hopefully, it dies.

Next they will ban toy baby dolls, since we clearly can’t have kids learning that caring for a child is an option in the culture of abortion.
Hawaii seems to be a mental disorder
Disney Princesses work just fine as guns as well. Better ban those as well.
Kids will make toy guns just about out of anything. I did. Kids don’t change as much as Liberals want or try to make them change.
Revenge of the Communist Nanny State! Remember! Big Brother is watching out for you!
So true...and my fondest memories as a child were when we played “WAR”.
When I was seven (in 1976), we had just moved back to Southern California and a huge storm came through and knocked over trees in a park across the street. These trees were so large that the older neighborhood kids built opposing forts out of the turned over trunks and limbs. Over a period of 4-5 days, different “armies” formed with dozens of neighborhood kids on each side. Each side developed a rank structure and a chain of command. In total there were 50+ kids from surrounding streets engaged in this mock “War”. Each morning I looked forward to running out and fighting the days battle. I remember being sent by my “General” on a raid into the enemy camp and being captured by the opposing force...just before dinner time of course...fortunately I was released to go eat when my mother called me in for dinner.:)
Finally someone’s leftist parent complained to the police and one afternoon the authorities shut us down.
Rubber band and a clothes pin.
My next venture will be the toy gun black market.
Playing Army as a kid was some of the most fun we had.
Give a boy a Barbie....
....and he’ll turn it into a gun.
Does not affect me. I started “buying” them real guns when they turned 6.
When they moved out we had a terrible row. Seems that they thought that these guns I had “loaned” them on their birthdays and at Christmas were actually their own. And my evil wife supported their delusional beliefs.
Cut my inventory in half.
And then I lost my half in that terrible boating accident.
Lived in NYC. Made a double barrel over under. Could shoot four milk bottle tops wid dat. Shoot two, flip it shoot two more.
Now that would be what I call fun!
My Dad taught me how to use the jigsaw on his Shopsmith but wouldn’t buy me toy guns because they broke too easily.
So I churned out five foot long pine gunstocks, mounted clothes pins on them wrapped with innertube strips, and we kids fired innertube bands at one another. When I saw my first Davy Crockett episode, the stocks became even longer with bent tenpenny nails simulating flintlocks. Then came my infamous double barrel model with a quick followup shot.
Yep. Simpler times. Its sad whats happened to our country.
