Watched a show before leaving for work tonight. The premis was buying gifts. The host suggested not to buy toy guns for gifts as they were un-PC. That got me to thinking, I have not been to a toy store in ages to buy a toy gun for anyone, bought my 8yr old an airsoft at the last gun show.

We buy my son mostly video games. Are toy guns being replaced with 1st person shooting games?

I would agree also. My 2 sons 19 & 10, both know the characteristics various rifles and shotguns from playing the varios video games.

I always enjoyed going to 6 flags and other amusement parks when I was younger. I vividly remember my dad buying me those wooden cap guns and playing cowboys and indians, cops and robbers, GI's vs the Nazis. It's truely a shame a lot of kids will never see the light of day or have glorious battles over the snadpiles and bar ditches of our towns and neighborhoods.

I guess when you loose, it's just a 'RESET' and game on again for most.

Darn video games are causing my kids to spend a good deal of their time indoors, moving only their fingers, to me this would be contributing factor to obesity. Before if you were outdoors you would at least run around.
