Wow, that brings back memories. I had a Johnny Seven M-14 that shot plastic bullets when I was a kid. It was normal to run around the neighborhood with real looking, toy guns. Nobody cared, as neither the media nor politicians were causing unnecessary concern.
I was just thinking the same thing. We had official "Roy Rogers" western rigs with SAA look-alikes that shot plastic bullets from individual spring-loaded "cartridges." We'd stage gun fights just about anywhere and pop out from behind bushes with our guns to ambush the neighbors, and even strangers. Nobody thought anything of it.

I really feel bad for today's kids who'll never experience the America I had the great good fortune to grow up in.
