Progressive Grinches try to steal Toy Guns From Children on Christmas

I remember writing an article a few years back about the political correctness and hoplophobia that was infecting toy makers and trying to bastardize toy traditions.  Namely in how they tried to impose their gun free zone in the wilds of toyland Yukon by stripping holiday icon, Yukon Cornelius of his trusty sidearm.

You can read that article in its entirety here:

Gun Confiscation in time for Christmas. Yukon Cornelius stripped of his trusty revolver

It seems as if denying a fictional frontiersman his right to keep and bear arms wasn’t enough for the cabal of manipulative progressives seeking to stamp out the notion that guns are a fabric of this country.  (Yes I realize that the Yukon isn’t in the United States but still)

Our friends at conservativefiringling.com have looked into the further attack on toy guns at Christmas and the steps progressives are taking to ensure that children will be denied this toys. From Conservative Firing Line:

The Left’s war on guns has been going on for a long, long time.  The running gun battle is one aspect of the Left’s War on Masculinity.  Physical strength, self-reliance, and rugged independence and self-defense are traditionally desirable masculine qualities which align quite well with national interests of a free and independent society.

Thus, the Left’s invention and ongoing weaponizing of Feminism to erode what today they call “toxic masculinity” in adults.  Guns are the essence of toxic masculinity, not to mention a literal threat to domination and control by big nanny government feminism.  Guns therefore must be regulated, controlled, and eliminated wherever possible.

But what about the next generation?  How can the Left prevent toxic masculinity in little boys?  Through government-run education, media propaganda and, of course, through regulation of children’s playthings.  Not content with pushing Barbie dolls for boys, the Left is prosecuting a war on toy guns.

New York has a history of targeting children’s toy gun retailers. New York state law

“PROHIBITS THE SALE OF IMITATION GUNS IN REALISTIC COLORS SUCH AS BLACK, BLUE, SILVER, OR ALUMINUM, UNLESS IT HAS A NON-REMOVABLE ONE-INCH-WIDE ORANGE STRIPE RUNNING DOWN BOTH SIDES OF THE BARREL AND THE FRONT END OF THE BARREL,” ACCORDING TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE. ALL FAKE TOY GUNS MUST BE NEON COLORED IN NEW YORK CITY.

Using this law, New York targeted Walmart, Amazon, Rite-Aid and other retailers, forcing them to fork over big bucks for the crime of selling toy guns.

In 2015, California passed its own law making toy guns illegal.  Governor Jerry Brown introduced the laws after law enforcement shot and killed a 13-year-old after mistaking the boy’s BB pellet rifle for a real gun.

According to the California Penal Code, an “imitation firearm” is “any BB device, toy gun, replica of a firearm, or other device that is so substantially similar in coloration and overall appearance to an existing firearm that a reasonable person would perceive that the device is a firearm.” See Cal. Penal Code § 16700(a).

The law prohibits “purchasing, selling, manufacturing, shipping, transporting, distributing, or receiving an imitation firearm [aka toy gun] for commercial purposes” unless certain exceptions apply.

And it is not just brick and mortar stores that are playing at being social engineers.

Amazon’s reluctance to allow retailers to offer toy guns like these rifles for sale through its Internet market space last year very nearly pushed at least one California toy dealer to the edge of bankruptcy. He donated thousands of toy rifles and pirate flintlocks to local charities to mitigate his ongoing business expenses to store the now unmarketable toys.  Afraid of retribution, this conservative California retailer prefers to remain anonymous.

I invite you to read the rest of the article in its entirety and see the kind of toy guns that are being banned.  The photos of these “weapons” would be laughable if it weren’t so pathetic on the part of progressives.

Targeting Toys: The Left’s War On Toy Guns

At the end of the day I was taught as a child the respect and adherence to safety of real guns and the fun and imagination of playing with toy guns.  As you can see now that lead to an interesting career path but one that I am passionate about to this day.

Progressives want to stamp out any idea that doesn’t fit their narrative and the one they have their eye on the most (tied with Christianity) is the 2nd Amendment.  Progressives want people to bow down before their alter of ideaology and try to strong arm those who don’t.  Their problem in this country, unlike others they have made more inroads in, is that the people who disagree also have the ability to stand up and fight back against tyranny and oppression.

Since Progressives cannot stamp out the 80+ million gun owners who won’t stand for tyranny, they are playing the long game and trying to stamp out that piece of American exceptionalism that resonates from the time we took up arms and founded this country, to the frontiersman charting new land with his rifle by his side, to the wrangling of the old west with a trusty six shooter, to the time when a million young men took up the rifle and freed an entire world from a socialist despot named Hitler.

You see, I played Army and gun slinger and Daniel Boone as a kid.  And I’ve little doubt that my imagination would have sustained such flights of fancy even without a cap gun, bb gun, noise making machine gun or what have you.  But i’m glad I didn’t have to.

Because toy guns are fun.  And fun is freeing.  And Progressives hate freedom so it is no surprise that they hate guns in all its iterations.

And remember: Train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray.
