You can have my Daisy when you pry it from my cold, dead hands

Banning BB Guns
You might think that Massachusetts can't become any more anti-gun.

Well, think again. Now there's a proposal to ban BB guns in Massachusetts. Complete with a BB gun amnesty period. And a BB gun buyback program.

In fact, these politicians not only plan to ban BB guns in Massachusetts, they're sending letters to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island to ask those states to do the same.

I had bought a Daisy BB gun to teach my kids how to shoot in the woods across from my house. Come to find out that Sherwood has a city ordinance against firing BB guns, slingshots, etc within city limits. (The only way to find this ordinance is with a google site search to find the minutes of an obscure meeting)

I guess the girlie men on the city council are worried about someone losing an eye. While I'm disapointed that we can't plink pop cans in the woods it's worked out since once we are outside of city limits my boys can freely shoot a 12gauge instead. (with a little help)

Hat tip Orbusmax for the story

Girly men are worried about people's eyes? Would you rather have manly girls worried about testicles? Androgynous hermaphrodites worried about BB guns used to rob liquor stores? Nice way to taint your opinion with a little sexist comment...don't worry, maybe in a future, when your kids are full misogynous grownups, they can go to a public park with their own children and blow up popcans with nuclear warheads.

The BB guns are first. The rest of the handguns and rifles will be banned next. At least the registered ones.
