A kindergarten in New Zealand requires kids to earn a “gun license” before they are allowed to play with toy (cardboard) guns. Stuff.co.nz reports …
Central North Island Kindergarten Association general manager Jan Ballantyne said labelling gun play as “bad” and banning it sent a mixed message to children whose fathers were hunters, farmers or in the armed services.
“For us to be making value judgments like that is quite wrong, but children need to know that there are rules. It’s important for children to know, yes, there are guns, they can kill, and there are rules around that.”
