The Left’s New Target: Nerf Guns

During his failed presidential bid, Beto O’Rourke famously declared, “Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” Now, an organization in New York is targeting another type of weapon: Nerf guns.

If you were born in the 80’s or earlier, then you probably remember a time when kids could play with toy guns and not get accused of having homicidal tendencies. No more.

In a letter to Nerf manufacturer Hasbros, the Empire State Consumer Project warns that its products bring to mind “mass shootings that have devastated American children and families for decades now.”

In particular, the letter cites “Nerf machine guns” such as “the Nerf Ultra One,” as contributing “to a culture where kids are afraid to go to school because of school shootings.” It goes on to allege that exposing children to “assault weapon toys” threatens “their dignity and their worth as human beings.”

Seriously.

Now, you might be thinking that students face bigger threats than Styrofoam darts. Kayla Cuevas and Nisa Mickens certainly did: the two Long Island teens were savagely murdered with baseball bats and machetes by members of MS-13. Police said their bodies were left “unrecognizable.”

Sadly, that wasn’t an isolated incident. A California student was stabbed to death the next year, and a high school in suburban Maryland made national headlines when the gang began using its bathrooms to sell drugs while subjecting students to beatings and rape.

MS-13 gained a foothold in America's schools thanks to an unsecured border and sanctuary cities that turn violent criminals back on the street. But according to leftists, you're not supposed to mention any of that; just focus on the toys.

Regarding the controversy around toy guns, child psychologist Dr. Michael Thompson insists that "there is no relationship between childhood make-believe gun play and actual adult violence," adding, "You don’t stop adult violence by banishing toy guns."

Unfortunately, the link between liberal policies and dead kids is a lot more clear.
