Toy Guns

My parents wouldn't have even blinked at seeing this on a kids bike.
I wouldn't have either, although I would have scoffed at 50 pellets lasting very long.
But I suspect today there would be a considerably large number of adults having conniptions over this.

On the other hand, I imagine your parents would have blinked a lot harder than folks do these days at a police officer overzealously shooting a child because they thought he was armed and dangerous.

I'd bet that ad was earlier, probably the 50's.

I think you're right, and asking questions. Me too until maybe 5 years ago.

Today I read this article about police contracts that protect them from prosecution or even punishment. Much of it I'd heard or at least suspected but the details made be angry.
