They'll only get my son's Red Ryder by prying his cold dead hands. (I swear that kid does nothing but shoot in his spare time...little bugger keeps pestering me to get him an M1A for Christmas...)

Here is a link to everything CPSC has on Daisy. Its about five million gazillion pages of pdf. beginning with a death certificate. [url]http://www.cpsc.gov:8765/query.html?col=pubweb&qt=Daisy+[/url] I have not read all of it (part one is 66 pages by itself) Of course this is politics disguised as genuine concern as usual.

Here's my Early 40's Plymouth, MI manufacture ORIGINAL Red Ryder (As in, NOT the Wal-Mart copy). [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/004/wy/6L/Ba/dn66611.jpg[/img] Little fuckin rifle is an American classic. The fact that "A Christmas Story" is such an immensley popular movie doesn't do anything to hurt it's value. Matter of fact, you could pick 'em up for $30 before that movie came out.

this is what i sent ========================= Chairman Ann Brown Phone: (301) 504-0213 E-mail: abrown@cpsc.gov Dear Ms. Brown, I am writing to protest your plan to recall and discontiue the sale of Daisy BB guns. I do not see why you would do this. I understand that you are of the opinion that these guns are dangerous. I would agree in the sense that they could be misused but i also feel that through proper training and the emplacement of the proper values, this would not be a problem. Daisy BB guns have been a source of enjoyment for generations. They foster responsibility, disipline, and markmanship. These are values i consider important. No one has ever said "I'm glad I don't know how to shoot." Responsiblity and disipline are important values to instill in any child. I think you should reconsider your position on this subject. I thank you for taking the time to read this. Sincerely, Ian Keirsted ========================== i don't know if that's any good. it's the first letter of that type that i have written. tell what you think. doing my part...... OffRoad

Damn, let's make sure we all vote when it comes time. It is really scary the number of dipshits attempting to run our country. These dipshits want to ban BB guns. Give me a f'ing break. These are some ignorant mother fo's

These politicians waste so much time. BB guns? PLEASE!!! Why can't they do something useful for once?[:(!]

Dear Ms. Brown, I understand that the Consumer Product Safety Commission is looking to have BB guns recalled. Why? Are there serious hidden defects? I look to the CPSC to protect me from companies that would attempt to sell defectively usafe products. What you do not need to do is inject your agency into an issue that has nothing to do with a defective product. I understand that pools kill many children each year. Why not ban them? How about ladders? People fall off them all the time. I am one "consumer" who sees no need to be protected from this "product". I'm sure that there are others. Sincerely, Jim Mooney

These asses obviously never had bb gun wars when they were kids. Running around the woods with 3 layers of clothes on, a insulated mask, and safety glasses, those were the days. It was our war game before there was paintball. By the way, this is my dad's opinion. Paintball first came out right around my birth (early 80's). I never had bb gun wars, unless you consider me versus the birds a war.[:)]

Cypher, you're dad is right on the money about bb gun wars. If you think a paintball stings... you ain't been shot with a bb!!! Goggles were highly recommended. Other than that, it was a free for all. Got hit in the tooth once- JUDAS, talk about pain.

Now, come on. BB Guns are dangerous. I, for one, will be jumping on this bandwagon. We need to rid our society of all evil instruments of pain and destruction. When my campaign to rid the WORLD of airguns is complete and I have come up victorious, I am going to launch a campaign to get rid of every single rock, stick, dirt clod, GI Joe, picnic utensil, pencil, paperweight and anything else that can be used as a weapon. Furthermore, I think we should all stand around and sing a few songs for the parents that can't seem to parent their children.

Somebody should have the CPSC do a study on the "effects of bureaucratic stupidity on indvidual freedoms." Anyone notice these Ex Clintoon appointees tactic of "Scorched Earth" politics? Cause as much damage as possible before they leave? Meplat

A while back, Congress released a ton of money to study advertising. The study was to look for any company that marketed guns to children. Rather than admit to coming up empty handed, they probably decided to nail Daisy.
