I don't see the harm in allowing kids to play with toy guns. And I agree with John, if you restrict your kids much.....well, that's just not good. And the kids will probably be resentful, and/or there could be problems down the line.

Do you ever disagree with John, Julie?

I think as long as your children have a healthy understanding of guns there won't be a problem.
Bingo. But I think this should be encouraged even if a parent choses NOT to have play guns in the house. Gun saftey should be taught to all kids, even 'city kids', IMO.

The only 'real' gun I have been near is a shotgun for clay pigeon shooting. I feel safer knowing that a pistol/rifle capable of killing someone has never been in anyway close to me.
I hope you're not implying that a shotgun couldn't kill you. It'll blow your head clean off.

Although I will say, I'm not much a fan of handguns. don't really understand the need for them. I have a couple shotguns and rifles myself, but no need for a handgun.


Personally, I can't wait till my kids are old enough to play guns with. Most of my friends have moved away or lost their toys

Same here. Toy guns make for an excellent safe way to get kids ready for the real thing. Our house if full of guns from handguns to shotguns and high-power rifles. My oldest is about to turn 6 and will soon be ready for the real deal. Thanks to toy guns he already knows many of the rules of gun safety.

Just to address the original topic, There's a long stretch of road between a proposal and a ban. Some states may ban toy guns, but I can't see it happening anywhere in Texas. Ever.

why would kids need to get ready for the real thing?

If real guns were banned there wouldn't be a need for this.

I don't agree with banning toy guns however, I used to love playing with them when I was a kid

If real guns were banned we couldn't hunt, sport shoot, or protect our homes from those who choose not to honor legal bans.

Clinton did his level best to ban gun ownership in America. It'll never happen. If it did, I wouldn't want to be an American anymore.

My latest favorite gun. Birthday present two years ago. Remington 700 BDL 30-06. Amazing rifle. I still need to get the trigger worked but it feels great as-is.

banning guns is pretty lame. May as well ban bows and arrows, knives, fireworks, hmm... cars kill people, so ban those too.

If not nightmares, then perhaps wet dreams?
