Kinder surprise eggs...................

The massacre of so many children in the Cincinnati last week, provoked national outrage that some see as marking a tipping point for sweeping federal legislation to restrict weapons and ammunition and a law requiring background checks on buyers before all gun purchases. But in a sign of the political difficulties that lie ahead, both the NRA (National Rifle Association) and all pro-gun Republican senators and congressman have remained silent. I was interested to read that Kinder surprise eggs have been banned in the USA , to buy or sell them is illegal.
:-S :-S

Kinder eggs?? How ridiculous. They ban Kinder eggs, but you can buy a gun in KMart (I know, I saw them!)

Typical.

I personally think the two different issues shouldn't be compared. It doesnt make it less right that small kiddies lives are saved by banning kinder, & its not been done at the expense of banning guns thats a separate issue.

Lots of things are banned each year. I remember kids choking on those small toys years ago, & TBH Ive never seen someone use these toys to deliberately kill children.

I hate guns, always have & but if you think about it its far easier to ban toys which are dangerous than to ban guns in a country where most people own guns & guns are readily available.

Hope they find a way or compromise to make the USA a safer place, but I feel their gun culture has gone too far.

Edit - apparently these kinder have never been allowed into the us.

Do Kinder still make the "giant" eggs for Christmas?

In Germany many years ago, I saw a woman in a supermarket, weighing them!

I wondered why, then realised she was looking for the ones with bigger toys.

She had a basket full.

:-D

Mildred I can see your point about chocking, but having tried to open a Kinder egg it is really not very easy and I suspect most toddlers would have difficulty without adult help. My OP was to demonstrate the some of US bizarre laws.

It is part of the US Constitution (2nd Amendment I think) for the right to bare arms, and I am really not in a position to comment on this, but I sincerely hope that the latest tragic events of last week will cause for the Act to be reviewed. I have a friend who was in USA in October and she saw Guns on Sale in a supermarket, but did not see any Kinder eggs.

I also have to add that I have never seen anyone go on the rampage and kill six adults and twenty children with Kinder eggs.
