Kristen Stewart: We Must ‘Shatter’ Idea That Playing With Toy Guns Is Cool
Breitbart ^ | 6/8/2017 | Awr Hawkins

Posted on 06/08/2017 2:07:18 PM PDT by antidemoncrat

According to People, Stewart’s attendance was highlighted by Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Gross said Stewart had approached him with an idea about a new way to push gun control and that he was “impressed” by her proposal. He said, “She came to us because she has something she wants to do with this issue. She eagerly shared her idea and without hesitation and is showing up tonight. She is committed to actually doing something, not just lending her name.”

While no specifics were given about Stewart’s gun control idea, People reports that it will revolve around taking “classic American depictions of our fascination with guns” and adding a new message.

What's the idea? More blathering from a celeb who seems to equate acting talent with real intelligence.

Whoever she is, she’s exactly correct. Playing with guns is not cool. It’s really cool.

Okay, Kristen. Start with Hollywood movies and TV shows. No depiction of guns or gunplay of any kind.

Good luck with that.

Our children play with toy fishing poles, toy tractors, toy bakery ovens, toy building blocks, etc, etc. These are great learning tools. Every kid should have a toy gun, and a father (or mother) willing to teach them how to handle it properly.

At least to this point “the resistance” uses bicycle locks, rocks, chairs, eggs, and boards to attack. Kids should use toy versions of those - no need to practice with toy guns unless colleges start allowing conservative speakers and protecting people to want to hear the speech from these standard weapons.

On another topic, toy EBT cards, “Section 8 Barbie”, and “Ken the pot dealer” would also be pretty cool toys.

Hey you smug beeeyitch, I grew up playing with guns. My Roy Rogers two gun set was not only cool, but AWESOME.

I could die like a champ and shoot like a champ. When I grew up I knew just what to do with them. Joined the rifle team in high school and brought my .22 Marlin Model 57 to school every day.

I was raised with an acute sense of right and wrong and the consequences of “wrong.”

Just like John Wayne, I never shot anybody who didn’t deserve it.

I don’t think of it as “playing with guns”, I think of it as openly and unapologetically brandishing my freedom and freedom is super cool.

I’m getting my flame suit on, but I agree with her.

Kids should be learning to shoot REAL guns. I don’t think they should play with toy ones.

It doesn’t teach the proper values. Now that I’ve said that, I’m getting my kids out on the range ASAP. We’ll practice with toy guns, then airsoft, then onto the real thing. But to point and play with each other? Not a chance.

Eat s**t and die Kristen you left wing c**t. I got my daughter her first .22lr, a CZ bolt action. We’ll be at the range this Friday. Her younger brother plays with his toy mp5, toy glock, and Nerf guns daily and will properly disciplined in the art of the rifle in due time. So go cower in fear in your safe space.

“But to point and play with each other? Not a chance.”

I was a kid during WWII——all we did was “shoot” and throw “grenades” at each other while playing war-——and we turned out to be a very peaceful generation.

No harm done.

"the shattering of the idea that it’s cool to play with toy guns and little kids grow up thinking that’s going to protect and empower them."

Most children don't grow up with out guide lines of how to cross the street, say thank you or no think you etc...they should also know how to handle a fire arm, to respect it, to understand why it must never consider it "cool"..just as hammers have a reason to be used you wouldn't call that "cool' and on and on. Teaching respect early on is really cool.

We need to teach inner city kids that they are not “tough”. I used to work with guys who just got out of prison. The problem is that they think they have to be the tough guy. You diss me I’ll pop a cap in you yo. Of course no matter how “tough” you think you are you’re not tougher than a steel blade or a lead bullet - either will plant your sorry behind six feet underground. Take them out to the shooting range. Let them do some shooting and teach them gun safety. Tell them “Don’t be tough - be smart. That’s where the money is these days”. That will make a real difference.
