OMG! New Iowa Bill Allows Kids To Handle Handguns

Is this the beginning of a militia of toddlers?

I am that mom who won’t allow my children to play with toy handguns in the house, no matter how “safe” they may be. I don’t care their plastic, play water guns, GI Joe guns, I just don’t want my children anywhere near them. And why? It’s because I might be crazy enough to hope that one day we can live in a gun-free society where we won’t have to worry about kids carrying around guns and turning on the news just to hear about the latest school shooting.

Yet, a new bill in Iowa is now allowing children under the age of 14 to handle guns. That means kids in middle school can lay down their toy guns and pick up the real thing, thanks to a bill that passed in the state House of Representatives.

Toddlers in Iowa can now handle handguns, thanks to a new bill passed in the state.

Fortunately for humanity, not everyone agrees with the new bill.
