This would be just silly if the University could claim that Nerf guns bear some resemblance to real guns. But they can't, because they don't, which makes this whole thing beyond preposterous. Instead, they claim the toys could be painted to resemble a real gun. By that logic, they should ban paint. They should also ban sticks, which could be painted to look like guns. And papier-mache, which could be molded and then painted to look like guns. And Play-Doh, obviously. . . .
