Nothing New, But Eye Opening Nonetheless

Nerf Guns

I don't normally post this much, but I thought this article was interesting.  For a lot of reasons. 

It has the same anti gun rhetoric we are all used to, but what I found most interesting was how differently I felt reading it.

9 months ago, I would have felt exactly the same way as this writer and for much of the same reasons and still they sound logically, but as I have pointed out many, many times on this blog, logic and the mind lie.

This flawed thinking is all wrapped up in what ifs and made up scenarios, none of which have ever been proven to be true, but fear is so gosh darn powerful.

This man, a journalist, who probably prides himself on doing his research and finding the facts, is making choices for his child based solely on fear.

Frankly, that kind of child rearing scares me more than whether or not he lets his child play with this toy.

There are people that live their lives in light fear. They fear guns.

There are people that get mugged and live a moment of heavy fear. They become gun owners.

Once again its "scary", "ultrarealistic". It's a freaking neon yellow plastic toy. Someone sure is paranoid. Projection onto a toy of fear.
