As part of the American left’s “politicize all the things” initiative, the Boy Scouts have now banned boy’s playing with water guns. Yes, water guns. Yes, the Boy Scouts.
The main reason given? Because pointing a firearm at someone “is not kind.”
“Pointing any type of firearm or simulated firearm at any individual is unauthorized,” states the group’s 2015 manual.
“Water guns and rubber band guns must only be used to shoot at targets, and eye protection must be worn,” it continues.
As for those other dangerous weapons, water balloons, they may be “no larger than a ping-pong ball” and must be biodegradable.
Other banned weapons include boomerangs, crossbows and “ninja weapons,” because obviously.
