It’s not uncommon for us to look around and watch our children play “Cops & Robbers” or “Cowboys & Indians”, and most of us wouldn't think anything of it. However, in our current downturn of the economy, and the additional problems with crime, it seems apparent that ensuring those under the age of eighteen can’t go and purchase “toy” guns is a top priority for the legislature. Why? Good question! We don’t why this matters either.
I mean we know it must be the end of society if we are selling these guns to children. Right?
Legislators say this is illegal!
So, while many of us are joking about the proposal of House Bill #442, there are actually children out there who are getting arrested for having these toy guns. Soon, it won’t just be the children, but also the parents. Imagine giving your child an allowance, and being an accessory to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
A 7-year-old child allegedly shot a Nerf-style toy gun in his Hammonton, N.J., school Jan. 18. No one was hurt, but the pint-size soft shooter now faces misdemeanor criminal charges.
Hammonton Police began an investigation into the “suspicious activity” at the Hammonton Early Childhood Education Center Jan. 18 after school officials alerted them to the incident.

We had the chance to be interviewed by KHNL news to find our thoughts on the proposed Toy Gun Ban. We wanted to see how our viewers felt the coverage was. I believe that it was pretty good, and relatively un-biased. Tim did a good job presenting the story. You can see more from KHNL @ http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/Global/story.asp?S=13994977
