Seems like having anything that looks like a weapon is a good way to get hurt in Iraq.

"The problem is not with the parents who purchase these toys but with the merchants that import such kind of toys," Dr. Tai said. Because the toys are popular, parents "cannot resist their children's persistence"

Oh, of course, why should parents take any responsibility for their actions? They're only adults responsible for the health and safety of a child. It seems unreasonable that we expect parents to say "no" to their offspring when the kid's acting like a spoiled brat.

/importers on the other hand are evil farkers who only want to shoot out the eyes of good little children, they force children to like these toys then force the parents to buy them.

Until the shiate neighbors, horrified by the glow of electric sex in the window, smashed our window, burned the house down, and stoned my father to death. I curse the day that immoral leg lamp came into our home.

If we are sending soldiers over there to shoot people with guns, I think it is a good idea for everyone involved to keep children from having realistic looking fake guns. I suppose bright orange ray guns would be fine.

Maybe parents should take a little responsibility and train their kids to not point guns of any kind at police/soldiers.

They're children. They're stupid and don't listen to their parents. It's not their fault, they're children.

Quickly, my mind evolved a spectacular plot...Let's see, an IED! Blows up near the garage, and shrapnel hits me in the eye! It would work. It had to work. Quickly, I whipped up some tears. "Mom, there was this IED and it blew up near the garage and it hit me in the eye and it broke my glasses!"

"Oh, honey! You're lucky, those IEDs have been known to kill people!"

Correct! It's NOT thier fault. It's the parent's fault if their crotch-fruit does not pay-attention/mind. Result - they become non-parents. win-win

You do know they sell air pistols here too, right?

I was referring to:

"It's the responsibility of the community to get rid of these toys," said Dr. Emad Abdulrazaq, national adviser for mental health at the ministry. "They make it easier for a child to make the next step to real violence, because every day he enjoys guns."

Yeah, it's a win that a child dies. It's a win that a parent has to lose their child. It's even a win that a US soldier has to deal with shooting an innocent child because he thought they had a weapon.

You have an odd sense of victory.

You're right, it's not their fault. It's the parents' fault like I said.

If your kid doesn't listen to you, don't get him a gun, even a toy one.
 
2011-01-01 10:58:05 AM  
Nocens: If your kid doesn't listen to you, don't get him a gun, even a toy one.

Because as a child you never got a hold of things your parents said you couldn't have?

Do you even remember being a child?

They want to ban airsoft guns based on the fact that they might cause an eye injury? Really? I had no idea Iraqis are complete wusses. Almost all airsoft guns produce less then 1 joule of force. If you ban then don't forget to ban straws and paper or the kids might make some spitballs.

/Banning them because they often look like real guns I can see.

Meh. Every family I know that banned toy guns wound up with kids who ran around pointing sticks and saying 'Bang Bang'.

You can take away the toy guns but you can't take away the games kids play. They will just go back to throwing rocks at each other.
