Default Old Toy gun commercials...Imagine today

I remember and had a few of these. Imagine toy gun commercials like these today?
If you ask me...a selective fire Tommy gun for $3 is a heck of a deal

We all had at least one of these and none of us shot up a school. Just saying it was how we were raised.

Yep, I had a few of those.

Got my first 6-shooter and holster set from my Granddaddy at 4yoa, Christmas 1961, Blanket, Texas.

What did we play with? Toy guns, real guns, bikes, fishing rods, baseballs, footballs, basketballs- - - none of these graphically violent video games. And, yes, I'm an old toot

Yep old school here too. Lot of toy guns, swords & slingshots. Growing up never thought of shooting schools or people with real guns. As stated by another post, we didn’t have the violent video games or weren’t exposed to them. Unfortunately our children have to some extent been exposed. Just saying, today’s style video games have taken violence & killing to far. Even glorying the act of killing in general. My 2 cents for what it’s worth.

Used to be a lot of toy guns based on popular tv shows. My favorites were spy guns from “Man from U.N.C.L.E” and “Wild Wild West” and westerns like “Have Gun Will Travel”. It was a big day when I graduated to a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun

My favorite was my GI Joe bazooka that shot plastic bombs. Used to wear out my sisters with that thing.

Even when I was a kid in the 90's we had an arsenal of toy firepower. Forget six shooters, we had M16's and Ak's. Video games were a big thing, but I've always told people we were the last generation to play outside.

I saw a young kid outside fishing the other day. I almost stopped to see what was wrong with him,,,,or to congratulate him on being normal.

I live in a neighborhood with tons of kids, been here 4 years and have yet to see a neighborhood baseball game. There is plenty of green space to accommodate with natural backstops. Would have been a dream baseball field for us when I was a kid. But nothing.

My 2 year old plays outside ALOT. And I'm gonna try to keep it that way. Maybe hope is not all lost.

Back in the day I remember my buddy got a nice plastic rifle with a working lever for his birthday. We would play cowboys and indians all day. It was big fun but all I had was a stick. A freaking stick.

Sometimes I think my head is on wrong because of that experience.

We used to play kick ball in the streets, football on the weekend, shot bow and arrows in the front and backyard and ride our bikes around to fish at the local ponds and anywhere we could fish. I grew up without guns but many of my friends dad’s had them hanging in the back window of their trucks. You don’t see any of those things I have listed now a day.

I had the western rifle, and it didn't sound like that. That was when false advertisement was still ok.
