Boy Scouts Ban Squirt Gun Fights for Being Politically Incorrect

Just as the moonbats in charge use the Girl Scouts to advance sexual deviancy, they use the Boy Scouts to push other social engineering objectives — for example, hoplophobia and wussification:

The Boy Scouts of America, an organization with semi-military origins, has put out approved activities for its members, and water gun fights are strictly prohibited.

A blog for the organization’s leaders said May 6 that pointing simulated firearms at people is not allowed.

“Why the rule? A Scouter once told me this explanation I liked quite a bit: A Scout is kind. What part of pointing a firearm [simulated or otherwise] at someone is kind?” said Bryan Wendell on the scouting website.

What part of taking all the fun out of being a kid is kind?

This is not parody, but the actual world we live in now:

The rule is clarified in the Boy Scouts of America National Shooting Manual, which says “For water balloons, use small, biodegradable balloons, and fill them no larger than a ping pong ball. […] Water guns and rubber band guns must only be used to shoot at targets, and eye protection must be worn.”

The manual includes a lengthy list of other prohibited items — boomerangs, crossbows, potato guns, spear guns and throwing stars. Scouts also may not use “marshmallow shooters that require placing a straw or similar device in the mouth.”

Meanwhile the kids who will grow up to fight our kids play like this:

    So then public schools are indoctrinating children with gender confusion and the Boy Scouts not only endorse gay scouts in the tent with your son but now are doing this wimpy squirt gun and water balloon stuff to help feminize. Take your kids back America…

    Buy your son a pocket knife and maybe even his first .22 rifle (to teach responsibility with marksmanship) because these are encouraged in solid home schooling. Take your sons out hunting and camping and if you don’t know how learn dad…duh.

    A recent Facebook post showed a group of American Heritage Girls learning target shooting and firearm safety. The boys group is (I believe) called Pathfinders and they are a fairly recent startup- American Heritage Girls has been around for a little over 20 years. My daughter just finished her first year and she loves it.

    Deballing boys at a high rate of speed. I no longer give $ to BSA. Why not ban rope, knives, hatchets, fire, etc. They’ll be safe when there’s nothing left to build on manhood. They ought to just merge with Girl Scouts. Isn’t that the end game?

    Don’t let your kids join the scouts. Don’t give them any money. Starve the beast.

    Most of the silly crap in the manuals is probably about fear of getting sued (and yes, moonbattery drives that too).

    In the PA supreme court primaries, it was very easy to figure out who NOT to vote for: Anyone endorsed by the Bar Association. Great rule of thumb for any candidate, actually. I won’t vote for anyone endorsed by teacher’s unions, either. Kiss of death as far as I’m concerned.

    The Boy Scouts still teach marksmanship, at least most of the rural chapters do. It’s how many boys get their first experience.

    http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/BoyScouts/AdvancementandAwards/MeritBadges/mb-RIFL.aspx

    How much longer? I don’t know. I’m sure the moonbats would love to eliminate those programs.

    I don’t buy girl scout cookies. And I will tell the moms standing in the back of the tables set up in front of grocery stores why, too, along with the sentiment that I would buy again if they stopped giving money to certain organizations. The moms always seem completely flabbergasted, but for a boycott to have maximum effect they need to understand that they are being boycotted and why.

    Often the easiest way to vet propositions and candidates is to review who supports them…good eye on the Bar Association endorsement.

    The BSA is completely run by insane libtards. Calling a squirt gun a “firearm” is proof that they have no connection to reality, which in turn is proof of insanity.

    Unfortunately most of this story about the BSA banning water gun fights is off base. Yes, they’re banned. But they’ve been banned for years.

    The Guide to Safe Scouting, the manual for what scouts and leaders can and can’t do, says:

    “Pointing any type of firearm or simulated firearm at any individual is
    unauthorized. Scout units may plan or participate in paintball, laser tag
    or similar events where participants shoot at targets that are neither living
    nor human representations. Units with council approval may participate in
    formally organized historical reenactment events, where firearms are used
    and intentionally aimed over the heads of the reenactment participants.
    The use of paintball guns, laser guns or similar devices may be utilized in
    target shooting events with council approval and following the Sweet 16 of
    BSA Safety”

    This section has been there for at least 6 years, and probably a lot longer.

    In reality, it’s just rule #1 of guns. “Don’t point a gun at anything you don’t want shot and destroyed.” If people followed that rule, most gun accidents would be avoided. When dealing with Boy Scouts as young as 10, you want to create a boundary. Don’t point even that’s even sort of a gun at a person. Note, you can still shoot everything else, just not anything that looks like a person.

    Not the BSA doesn’t deserve some flack, as they slide leftward. But on this issue, I think it’s just being responsible.
