Few boys in American history made it through adolescence without at some point embracing the common pastime of pretending to shoot guns. With the advent and prevalence of Nerf brand toys in recent generations, that childhood propensity has become both safer and more fun for millions of kids.

Naturally, however, the push to erase any semblance of firearms – no matter how innocent – from communities across the US has led to a crackdown on even the most harmless of playthings.

Such was the apparently the case in Wausau, Wisconsin recently, when six high school seniors were confronted by police and issued disorderly conduct citations for wielding Nerf guns. These toys are immediately distinguishable from any legitimate weapon; however, since someone reportedly complained about being frightened by the teens, authorities immediately got involved.
