POLL: Buying Toy Guns For Kids

Would you purchase a toy gun for a child?

You'll shoot your eye out, kid.

This debate has been going on for quite some now, even before Ralphie Parker's parents refused to deliver on his Christmas wish of a B.B. gun (They eventually gave in, but we all know what happened next).

But what about toy weapons? They don't shoot bullets or even B.B.s but they do look like the real thing. Some say they encourage violence. Others worry that they can cause death, as was the case of a 12-year-old boy in Little Rock, Arkansas, who was fatally shot by a police officer who mistakened the child's toy gun for a real weapon.

The other side of the argument, however, says these items are still just toys and are harmless.

Vote in our poll to tell us where you stand on buying toy guns for kids.
