    Federal bill to restrict the content of gun advertising. Likely mostly unconstitutional -- and a pretty poor idea. By Eugene Volokh

    But we must "do something!" about this," said Congresscritter Robin Kelly D-Il-2.

    I can't think of any marketing strategies of firearms toward children. Can somebody provide an example? I don't recall seeing a Glock commercial with kids playing with guns. That's typically reserved for the scare tactics of the anti-self defense crowd. Are they talking about toys?

    T-shirts and hats in their sizes with guns depicted.

    Yosemite Sam cartoons.

    There are others.

    Can you imagine Elmer Fudd without his shotgun?

    There would a ton of shows/movies/cartoons that would have to be pulled.

    I'm looking forward to the honorable legislator providing a list of murders that involved pink guns, Crickett youth rifles, NRA hats and Glock windbreakers.
