New York’s War on Toys

Taking it upon themselves to ruin everything fun, New York legislators are now trying to regulate what kind of toy guns your kids use. That's right. These aren't real life AR-15's that the liberals are always whining about. These are the plastic guns that shoot foam darts, if anything. According to the Huffington Post:

New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced a settlement Monday with Walmart, Sears, Amazon and other retailers to wipe realistic-looking toy guns from their shelves.

The retailers — namely, Walmart — must pay fines of more than $300,000 for selling more than 6,400 illegal toy guns from 2012 to 2014. The settlement, and the new rules that accompany it, put tighter restrictions on the shipping of illegal toy guns ordered online.

“We've had 63 people shot in New York because law enforcement officers thought the toy gun was a real gun,” Schneiderman said during an appearance on the “Today” show. “That's not acceptable.”

As an example of a legal toy firearm, Schneiderman held up a plastic rifle, its buttstock dyed neon yellow and its barrel a bright orange.

“No one is going to hand over their wallet because they're being held up by this,” he said, brandishing the plaything. “No police officer is ever going to mistake this for a real gun and shoot someone in a tragic incident.”

When will people realize that not all issues are a matter of legislation? You don't have to make laws for everything that upsets or bothers you. This idea that issues can be solved by signing ineffective laws into existence is ridiculous. The entire role of government needs to be rethought over by the liberal left.
