I was watching an old Twilight Zone episode this morning. It had a girl about 10 years old running around pointing and firing a toy Thompson machine gun at people. How did that get past the nanny patrol and not banned I don't know? It got me thinking boys AND GIRLS both had toy guns when I was kid growing up in the 50-60's and no one gave it a second thought. They were safe and rarely ever got abducted, killed or shot. Fast forward to today and it is an intolerable event if a kid even thinks about a gun and kids are abducted,killed and shot today. So much for a safer world without guns. In the picture the one with toy guns is a girl.
