Are knives with beautiful handles also more dangerous?

How about cars with special gadgets and prettier colors?

It does not matter how they are decorated, they are still a tool. The decorations do not make them more dangerous.


Quoting TruthSeeker.:

This! ! I think they are dangerous, moreso than regular weapons.



Quoting Woodbabe:

I honestly do not like guns that resemble toys!

My kids have many things they are interested in. What they are not always interested in or happy about is waiting patiently for their turn.

We also do not force our children to go shooting. They often request it.

Of course we each know our children and what they like and enjoy.


Quoting Sisteract:

If my young child was bored or disinterested, I'd find something that stimulated and interested her/im- Quoting Godgaveme4:


Why not make it interesting to the kids? My kids love to go to the range with us to shoot. We have guns that are their size to make it comfortable for them. My kids do not think their youth size guns are toys. They still respect them.



Personally, we do not believe in hiding our guns. Our kids know what guns we own and where they are. Keeping them a secret is dangerous.




Quoting canadianmom1974:

Why? I mean why make a gun more attractive to a child, and why make a deadly weapon look like a toy? There's a whole mindset there I truly don't understand.





I also don't buy the 'out of sight, out of mind' line either. My kids always had more of an attention span than that.

it's not just you.  I think sensible gun owners would see the point and agree.  

Quoting Woodbabe:

You know I'm very pro-gun, but there's something about making it more appealing to a child to want to touch/pick up that bothers me. But that's just me.

Quoting Carpy:

I don't give them to kids to go out and play with.

I think that "cutesy" crap should not be on weapons- especially those that children might be exposed to-

Children are not minature adults- many kids could lose focus on the importance of the device and focus on the cute- that's just how those small minds work-

I'm also not a fan of guns that look like toys.

I disagree. There are guns and there are toy guns. Most kids are allowed to play with toy guns. Mine have nerf guns that are pretty and brightly colored. That gun looks like a toy. If someone left it loaded it would be very easy for a child to mistake it for a toy.
Regarding knives, most kids don't play with fake knives or drive cars so that's a moot issue.

Exactly. We have rifles. Traditional black rifles. Were also have nerf guns the kids play with. We have internally left our weapons out(unloaded) just to see what our children would do. They both on separate occasions informed us that they were left out and not in the safe. This gun in the pic looks like a toy.

 Cute.  Considering so many people don't teach their kids about guns though, I am not so sure about the Hello Kitty.
