If gun control advocates had their way, there would be any toy guns. The forces of civilian disarmament can’t always get what they want, so toy guns there are. And top of that list: NERF guns. They are, in fact, the average American’s hands-on entry into our vibrant gun culture. Walmart admits — yes admits — that NERF guns are one of its Top Toys for 2016.
“Hundreds of kids, ages 18 months to 12 years, were given the chance to play with some of the year’s hottest toys and pick their favorites,” Walmart officials told tmj4.com. “This one-of-a-kind playdate lead to this year’s Chosen By Kids list – the top 25 toys of the season.”
Chosen by Kids? One can only imagine the “politics” underlying the retailers’ choice of toys for the kids. What about total retail sales? Why doesn’t Walmart doesn’t just straight-out list the top 25 toys in order of popularity? Because PC cake and eating it too.
Anyway, assuming you’re on acid when making the comparison, the Nerf N-Strike Elite HyperFire Blaster has a bit of the Tavor and P90 about it. Maybe that’s why it made it onto Walmart’s “Thrill-Seeker” category; including toys that “allow kids to take an adventure right in their own homes.”
No matter what the antis say about the dangers, guns are fun! As long as boys have testicles and girls seeks revenge, you can’t stop the foam ballistic dart/signal. I wonder if the MIA Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America civilian disarmament jefe Shannon Watts’ kids grew up with NERF guns. I bet they did. Did you?
