Letter: BB gun appearances

Some time ago I wanted to purchase a BB gun. The only ones available looked like high-powered weapons. Why shouldn't a BB gun look like a BB gun?

A device designed to shoot harmless projectiles should not look like a deadly weapon. Is the game supposed to be teaching children to kill? Do you really want your child running around with a device that looks like it could kill someone?

The manufacturers of these look-alikes are a cause of recent deaths and others that might follow.
