Outrageous Boy Scouts Ban Water Guns, Call the Toys 'Simulated Firearms'
Boy Scouts of America has announced a ban on water gun fights and a limit on the size of water balloons allowed at their summer camps.
"Pointing any type of firearm or simulated firearm at any individual is unauthorized,” states the group’s 2015 manual. "Water guns and rubber band guns must only be used to shoot at targets, and eye protection must be worn."
As for water balloons, they must now be "no larger than a ping-pong ball" and must be biodegradable.
The change is not sitting well with many, including Andrea Tantaros, who said on "Outnumbered" today that this is another instance of the "feminization of boys."
"God forbid we offend anybody. God forbid we all don't get trophies," Mike Baker said. "Everybody's got to get a participation medal. It's nonsense."
Rachel Campos-Duffy suggested that this "wussification" could result in a generation of thumb-sucking, basement-dwelling, video game-playing young men.
