What shuld be banned for kids is video games.

Get them outside riding stick horses and playing cowboys and indians. Get a new Cowboy hero like Roy Rogers or Hopalong Cassidy instead of Kid Rock and Iced T.

My Hopalong Cassidy cap gun never caused me to kill anyone.
Neither did my Red Ryder BB gun, which I still have.It still shoots too although it isn’t quite as strong as it once was. I got my first shotgun from Sears Roebuch, A JC Whitney pump shotgun at 14, paid for it myself with the money I got from collecting ground leaves on the family
tobacco farm. Until then I used my Dad’s old double barrel that always sat in the corner of the sitting room.

“My Hopalong Cassidy cap gun never caused me to kill anyone.”

Well, well..... MY dual Holster Annie Oakley, Mother of Pearl handle capgun pistols were one of my favorite toys ever! My brothers and I shot at each other, shot at the neighbor kids from the farm down the road. Woo Hoo... best thing ever was my mom or dad coming home with new rolls of caps for us to fire off. ahhhhhh sweet memories from a much more pleasant time - the 50’s. I’ll check again with all my broethers, but as far as I know none of us ever shot anyone! PS: AND I loved the three stooges, too. How about Bugs Bunnie - oh so violent. NOT. WE knew the difference between “pretend and real”. (that was for those of you in Rio Linda”

"The Simpsons" had an episode where the TV transmitters shut down and one great scene showed all the neighborhood kids stepping outside, rubbing their eyes, and seeing other kids on bikes or using a stick to roll a hoop down the street.

I slapped my knee over that one.
