Happiness is a warm BB gun for Christmas?

ralphieHave you taken the kids to visit the Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops at Savannah Mall?

It’s great because they have free photos with Santa on weekday evenings and on weekends, as well as fun kids games like remote control trucks, model trains, racetracks, a letter-to-Santa table, crafts etc. A little less appealing  – for this non-gun-packing-mom at least – was the toy shooting range for kids.

Toy guns and kids is the topic of my newspaper column this week entitled “You’ll Shoot Your (Or Rudolph’s) Eye Out. Read it here. Would love to know what you think of the toy shooting ranges and whether you plan to or already have allowed your kids to play with BB guns? Do you find yourself quoting Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”: “You’ll shoot your eye out?” Or do you feel BB guns are safe and moms like me are overreacting?
