Think Of The Children!

Even if they’re colorful and super cool, kids shouldn’t be playing with water guns because it normalizes the real thing. Kids need to learn that guns aren’t toys. There’s nothing fun or playful about this serious topic and it doesn’t matter if it’s a water pistol or a semi-automatic rifle — a firearm isn’t a laughing matter. These are weapons that can end lives, and as much as we want to teach our kids about gun control and safety, we contradict ourselves the second we allow them to run around with toy versions to shoot their friends.

Yes it does. Water gun ≠ Semi-automatic rifle. Until your kid knows that she shouldn’t have a squirt gun. When she knows the difference you can teach her about real firearm safety.
