Toy gun sales send negative message
We attended the Mountain View Art & Wine Festival last month and found it to be fun, well-organized and well attended.
There was, however, one disturbing issue that should be called to everyone’s attention: A vendor was selling rubber-band and slingshot toy guns. In view of the current gun violence across our country, and the daily loss of lives due to gun violence, this is sending a negative message to our children. It says it is OK to play with guns, to aim guns at others, and it enhances the power of gun usage.
