Weapons are Never Toys

What do you see wrong with this picture?

Children in Training

Yes, that’s right: Children shouldn’t be playing with weapons, no matter how much you camouflage them. This armoured vehicle is not a play-ground nor a toy. I was shocked to watch parents as they allowed their children to clamber all over, playing with the guns, aiming them at the sky, and smiling for their parents cameras.

Please tell me I am not the only person horrified by this image!

  1. I’m not too horrified – defence force stuff is damn interesting stuff and kids learn by playing. Hopefully their parents are standing nearby explaining that they aren’t toys :)
