A 21 year old man, in Singapore, was arrested in his home after people reported seeing him wielding the gun shaped object, pictured above, at a local mass rapid transit station. Now I am all for people enjoying what makes them happy. Be it Nerf like guns painted black. Is it stupid to be exposing that to an ignorant public? Yes. Same thing goes with using airsoft in public. Not a good idea and brings unwanted attention. Singapore is a strict country. We all know the tales of caning due to graffiti and gum chewing. Well they take firearm related incidents very serious. Many of my friends in the Nerf community, in Singapore, have told me that the police watch them and have files on them. All for Nerf guns. Airsoft is contraband in Singapore. And possessing it is almost as bad as a real firearm.  For more information about this guy you can see it in this article.

    I’m speechless…

      It’s basically a city state run for the benefit of one ruling family.

    • Nils

      Apparently owning a firearm in Singapore is a capital offense.

  • Tyler McCommon

    What else is contraband in Singapore? Sling shots? Rubber bands?

    • Sianmink

      Independent thought.

        Coming soon to the United States, courtesy of B.H.O and his band of criminals.

    • Niceguy21

      Slingshots yes. Rubber bands, not yet.

      • politicsbyothermeans

        Sounds like constructive possession to me. Best get that rubber band registered, Citizen.

    The future of America if we don’t whoop some democRAT ass in November and start repealing as many Second Amendment infringements as we can!

    • DGCJ

      Why not shoot yourself now? Make the USA a better country.

      • Hensley Beuron Garlington

        What, can’t do it yourself? Need real men to do the hard things? You are a poster child for your people, DGCJ.

        • DGCJ

          Yep, I am indeed a good representative of my people:
          I have a Ph D.
          I’ve taught at four universities from New York to California.
          I have outperformed every heterosexual in my family tenfold.
          I have four published books and ten CD recordings.

          • Common human being

            And yet you fear inanimate objects?

    • DGCJ

      I am all for repealing the 2nd amendment in its entirety.

      • Jeffrey

        Lucky most Americans don’t agree with you. Btw are you locked in your moms basement? If so let us know and we will send help.

        • DGCJ

          1 my mom died two years ago, and when she was alive we lived 2500 miles apart most of my adult life. I live on the West Coast.
          2 most Americans actually DO agree with me, which is why we elected Obama twice. Most Americans are liberals and registered Democrats
          3 you gun nuts sure do think that we’re coming for your guns. Why? Because we ARE.

          • Barry

            First, sorry to hear about your mother.
            Secondly, if you feel so strongly against firearms, you should try to change the laws. As of now, your chances are slim. If most Americans did support a ban, both houses of Congress would have passed some kind of law. But the reality is if this were to occur, the next round of elections will surely swing Republican and they will be repealed.
            Finally, guns are a part of American culture. Despite what you want to happen, this will not change in our generation. Taking away this liberty is akin to banning alcohol (again).
            You have just revealed how ignorant and closed minded you are. Blanket generalizations is the cause of how divisive our country is. Let people live their lives, own their guns, marry whoever they want, and practice whatever religion they believe in. Once you try to limit our freedoms, you can bet we will fight back. Let’s really make America Great Again (as in a country where people from the world over respects us for being honorable and just–not like “the guy” who spews hate everywhere).

          • Hensley Beuron Garlington

            Go, Barry! Well said!

          • Mattblum

            I’m not sure if being that rational and cogent is allowed here….. Thanks for laying things out so well.

        • Hensley Beuron Garlington

          He must be. I’ve been telling him to get help all day.

  • Joel

    OK, folks, we’re all here because we own guns, many of us, including myself, carry guns (my 9mm Shield is on my hip in an IWB holster as I type this, getting ready to go to a movie). But in today’s climate is there anyone here who really thinks showing up at a public transportation facility with a realistic looking toy gun is a good or sensible idea? From a common sense perspective? Really?

    • ostiariusalpha

      Brandishing is brandishing, toy gun or not that’s going to draw some attention from the authorities that you might not want.

  • john huscio

    Why are we allied with them again?

    • Anonymoose

      Because they have lots of money.

      • Mike

        I used to tell everyone that Singapore reminded me of a totalitarian government because they recorded every telephone conversation.
        Seems times have changed as all our governments do this now as standard yet no one seems to be outraged anymore

    • Tassiebush

      Because foreign policy is different to domestic policy

  • Bill

    I’m most disturbed that there is such a thing as a “Nerf community.” But then I always wanted to be a cop in Super Mario Land.

    While I wouldn’t open a major case file, seriously, after Paris, San Bernardino and now Belgium, you’d have to be a little teetched in the head to carry something like this in public. While Singapore may have draconian laws, they aren’t the USA, and you don’t have to scrap gum and urine off your shoes after riding a bus.

  • Sim Chester

    I’m a Singaporean and there are a several things that makes Singapore pretty draconian. One of them is that our media censorship is so strong that even some local films are banned. Better yet, we only get half of all the content on Netflix. If you don’t have cable in Singapore,the only things you’re gonna see are our bad dramas and almost every piece of media there has something to do with our government….hell our only broadcasting station is controlled by the government.

    Jesus wept. I live in NY and the best place to shoot close to me is in PA. I could be there in 45 minutes but I have to cut through Azerbaijersey so I drive an hour and a half around instead. That’s because I had an off duty NJ deputy tell me that my SKS (which he identified as an AKM) was illegal due to the bayonet lug. I told him it’s a good idea to understand the laws he was supposed to enforce and to piss off. Then I went back to turning money into noise, light and happiness. During the ceasefire he stood behind my firing point and made it a point to loudly call dispatch and have someone waiting for me when I drove into the DPRNJ. Even though I knew I was completely legal, I took the long way home.

    P.S. Did you know that you can curse out a whole state for over an hour without having to repeat a single insult? It’s true!
