    Ben,

    What are you thoughts on toy guns for kids?

    I dont know anyone around my age (30′s) that watches the news. With regard to the news, Twain said: “If you don’t read the newspaper, your uninformed. If you read the newspaper, your mis-informed.” I could not agree more. Most of the people who watch cable news/read newspapers are in the 50-80 age range IMO. Most of the young people either don’t care or get their news online-which is good for us.

      I’m divided on the toy gun issue. Generally I’m all for letting parents make their own decisions and I’m against outside pressures telling them how to raise their kids. But I would prefer teaching kids how to handle real guns while teaching them respect for a very dangerous tool, rather than turning them out to pretend to shoot each other with toy guns. I see a gun as a tool like a power saw or a belt sander. I think it’s more important to understand how to use it right, rather than play with it as a toy. That said, I think punishing kids for playing is the wrong approach. I think guiding is always better than forcing.

      Ben
