Bill Bans Kids Clothes and Advertising With Firearms

Who would recognize Yosimite Sam without his guns?
If an Illinois democrat gets her way, all images cartoon or otherwise that contain guns that kids might see, are OUT.
Representative Robin Kelly, (Dem-Il) has introduced a bill with sweeping advertising bans and federally mandated labeling requirements for firearms. (who keeps electing these people?)

If enacted, this would seriously hamper youth model firearms, youth shooting sports, and prevent children from exercising their First Amendment rights to show their support for the Second Amendment rights (by banning children’s clothing related to firearms).

Here is part of the bill:
Not later than one year after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Federal Trade Commission shall promulgate rules in accordance with section 553 of title 5, United States Code, to prohibit any person from marketing firearms to children. Such rules shall include the following:

(1) A prohibition on the use of cartoon characters to promote firearms and firearm products.

(2) A prohibition on firearm brand name merchandise marketed for children (such as hats, t-shirts, and stuffed animals).

(3) A prohibition on the use of firearm marketing campaigns with the specific intent to appeal to children.

(4) A prohibition on the manufacturing of a gun with colors or designs that are specifically designed with the purpose to appeal to children.

(5) A prohibition on the manufacturing of a gun intended for use by children that does not clearly and conspicuously note the risk posed by the firearm by labeling somewhere visible on the firearm any of the following:
(A) ‘‘Real gun, not a toy.’’.
(B) ‘‘Actual firearm the use of which may result in death or serious bodily injury.’’.
(C) ‘‘Dangerous weapon’’.
(D) Other similar language determined by the Federal Trade Commission

hmmm… I wonder what this means for all of those video games that kids play which involve blowing away opponents with firearms…or what about movies where actors use guns to shoot people…. What about those pictures of cops wearing guns that portray them as nice guys that kids can count on for help?

    Illinois is being run by the commie crud in Chicago who think they are royalty. This stupid woman is another puppet of the Madigan gang.

    Another ditzy democrat rides again. It’s too bad this bimbo considers her time so worthless. Rather than applying it to significant issues she has decided to follow the example of her leader and waste her time on inane baloney.

    If she wants children to not be exposed to guns, she’s going to have to get Hollywood to stop filming any more movies or tv shows that show them. Furthermore, she’ll have to find a way to get all such previously made movies banned from cable & satellite—plus, have pop tarts be made so tough that children can no longer chew them into the shape of guns. And don’t forget the clouds. Obama could appoint her cloud-image czar, in charge of somehow making sure none can be construed as deadly assault pistols. (Knives, apparently, would be O.K., given the fact that we hear no anti-knife uproar when stabbing violence occurs.)

    Please allow me to officially apologize for the insane amount of stupidity that is resident in Illinois, and more to the point, The People’s Democratic Socialist Republic of Cook County (the bastion of leftist cowardice); if they weren’t so stupid it would be comical…
