Re: Paranoia gone too far....
Thankfully in my neighborhood kids can be kids. Most of the boys have Star Wars plastic lightsabers and various brightly colored toy guns. Their favorites are the Nerf ones that shoot the foam darts. I'm still not allowed to by my son a realistic looking gun. However a couple years ago my son pulled a very smart move all by himself. For 3 months before Halloween all he said he wanted to be was a cowboy. He pestered my wife relentlessly. She finally caved and let me buy him a pair of six shooter cap guns to complete his outfit. LOL!
He's the only kid on the street with capguns. Isn't that sad?
