45. This isn't about being pro-gun or anti-gun, it is about responsible gun ownership IMHO
When they started making toy guns look like toys instead of like real guns it was because people (mostly kids) were getting shot by cops because the guns looked real, and the cops thought they were in danger. Making real guns look like toys is just a bad idea for the same reason.

What happens when little suzie thinks that that hello kitty handgun is a toy and points it at Bobby and pulls the trigger? Yes, responsible people lock their guns up. Unfortunately, not every gun owner is responsible.

Own a gun, don't own a gun. Whatever. But don't make it look like a toy, it isn't in this case.
