It is not really news that anti-gun hysteria among extremists and media elites has been at (what we can only hope is) peak insanity for some time, as the efforts to demonize law-abiding gun owners expanded to demonizing kids at play and.
Under Covid restrictions, while children learned virtually in their own homes, obvious toys elicitedfrom school administrators who seem to have so much fear over firearms that they call the police.
One(while not a toy, certainly not a firearm) has led to to counter the insanity.
But don’t think this is something new. Schools have long been a breeding ground for ridiculous anti-gun responses to children and their toys, often . Even when children turn themselves in for innocent mistakes that violate silly policies, they face .
Schools aren’t the exception, though. We have been covering the disturbing trend of anti-gun extremism invading the realm of kids-at-play for some time. Modeled after so-called gun “buybacks,” joyless scolds have been operating programs to encourage children (their parents, really) to for what the program operators deem to be more politically correct toys.

So much for personal protection.
These programs encouraging children to abandon toy guns generally run around Christmas, with ’t satisfied with ruining just one holiday season. They have also gone after toy guns during .sometimes getting involved in the lunacy. But these anti-gun Grinches aren

While we would not expect a Times advice columnist to put a great deal of thought into advice that involves guns, whether real or toys, the advice given by Philip Galanes to suggest kids use water balloons instead is somewhat amusing.
Doesn’t he realize a water balloon is simply a proxy for a grenade?
The splash of water even approximates the devastating shrapnel that is the hallmark of grenades, striking both the intended target as well as those in close proximity.
Philip writes, “Personally, I don’t think anyone should become desensitized to the act of pointing a gun at another person (even if the gun is made of chocolate).” But hurling grenades is OK?
