the nerf gun ban

I am seriously considering it not because of any morality I don't want my kid to play with guns qualms but because I am sick to death of hearing the stupid things being fired, hearing about nerf guns, hearing about nerf gun wars on youtube, seeing an amazon cart full of nerf guns he would like to purchase, walking through a nerf gun war etc etc etc

I saw a lot of where were you what were you doing sorCheck Spellingts of post on social media today and parts of that day I recall vividly while parts seem to be a blur of tears, horror, fear for my brother serving in the navy, fear for family in the tri-state areas surely targets if something more was going to happen, fear for ourselves because perhaps Oak Ridge would be a target? What else was going to happen that day? Remember the goofy ass movie with Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, um wolverines oh yeah Red Dawn....
We at some point reached news saturation that night or maybe it was the 12th but I remember David turning the television off and putting on some music as a distraction. The footage is just as disturbing today as it was 10 years ago and the body count of 2976 did not stop there for such a defining moment in this nation's history it still leaves so many unanswered questions
