Marketing to women, I have no issue with. In theory, adults are supposed to have the wherewithal to see through these ploys.

Marketing dangerous weapons to children???

I don't understand how that's legal.

And, yeah, I know I'm anti-gun, but come on...

Marketing cigarettes is illegal now (right? I think it is) because we all know how dangerous that is. Even marketing to adults is illegal.

So how is marketing weapons legal? You have to be a certain age to enter the armed forces and/or become a cop.

Surely part of that is the understanding that you need a certain level of maturity to handle the weaponry involved in those jobs.

If nothing else, parents should be the ones to introduce their children to firearms, since they'll be the ones held responsible if it all goes to hell.
