Boys will be Boys

Scotsman.com News reports Playing with guns is 'good for boys'
Confirming what many guilty parents long suspected, Penny Holland says boys will indulge in gunplay regardless of attempts by schools, nurseries and guardians to stop them.

Holland, who claims boys have fallen victim to politically correct dogma, claims that suppressing their need for boisterous play may be counter-productive.

Holland, senior lecturer in early childhood studies at London Metropolitan University, believes that boys who have been banned from playing at soldiers, pirates, or superheroes, become disruptive and live up to a "bad boy" image.
The gun banners were a bit upset with this, as it goes against their "guns cause crime" theory. Guns cause crime the way flies cause garbage. Thanks to KABA
