A Kid With Toy Gun: Warning This Photo is Very Scary to an American…

20130110_135719

I warned you that this is a scary photo and would ruin your day, plus it will also enforce the belief you have that Russia is a barbaric world of heathens.

No he has not robbed a bank and he is not running from the cops… (Cops? What Cops?) I caught this kid in a run as he fought a horde of other kids in a furious battle to the death in our playground today. It looked just like it did in America when I grew up and we fought Indians and bad guys and Germans. I am not saying good or bad, I am saying that we did it as I grew up and Russians do it as they grow up…

I remember Summers of finger guns and inner tube guns ending many a Indian’s existence. Why it was what you did instead of killing things on a video screen…

It seems that everyday I am reminded about the old days of America in Russia…

Now I am worried about the mental state of America and her people. This image above would most likely lead to the cops being called and if that young man would carry that toy to school, he would be seriously reprimanded and most likely spend some time in detention and or worse…

I remember taking a real single shot 410 shotgun to school for show and tell. I did a lot of studying about the weapon and shared what I knew as facts and then passed on rules about how to carry and use a safe gun, where then explained. We learned about real things in those days…

So as I have said before, “Your freedoms are gone America!”, but I know a young Russian in the picture that has the freedom to play with toy guns and he is having a wonderful day in the snow…

Lets see your kid run across a playground with a toy gun and see how long before your kid has you in hot water…

What is wrong with you America? We point our fingers at all the wrong reasons for things happening and we blame all the others in the world and in our own neighborhood, as we ourselves live in a world of fantasy and Hollywood…

This photo is why I love Russia. It is life in real time, not computer time. Kids in Russia run, play, jump, scream, fight and yes play with toy guns…

Besides they do all this when it is -15c and below outside…
