See, problem isn't just defined as getting high, a problem could be any number of things. A problem could be that underaged kids are sneaking alcohol from their parents in to the wood and drinking with their friends. That still causes the brain cell damage and the getting high, but you also have deliquency and disrespect for authority.
Please, don't take this into semantics. I'm sure you know good and well I was addressing that people sniffing the paint/glue/etc is the problem Wal-mart is trying to stop, not all problems in general. As far as delinquency and disrespect go, that's a problem you're not going to get rid of without some good parenting. Even if Wal-Mart stops idiots from getting what they want, they'll just find some other place to get it, and also make a lot of people mad by limiting their purchasing power. All you're accomplishing is keeping things that could
do some damage out of the hands of people who wouldn't use them for that purpose.
See, your asinine comments really don't help things any. Last time I checked kids weren't going around the city and using people as horseshoe targets for toilet seats. However, kids are going around and shooting people, vehicles, pets, and houses with paintball guns.
I'm sorry, it appears I forgot to add the [sarcasm] bbcode around the toilet seat comment. But I have
seen people use hairspray as a flamethrower, and I know people personally who've done the napalm bombs(my brother, an idiot). Odd how you didn't comment on those. Basically i'm saying there is a very large number of things that can be used for harm, and are being used for harm, that do not have any limits set on their purchase, and shouldn't. It won't do anything but make people mad.
Funny thing about those paintball guns too, in the instructions they specifically state that unprotected play could result in serious injury or death. If I remember correctly, at around 280 feet per second, which happens to be normal for game play of paintball, the paintballs are actually travelling at around 200 miles per hour. I don't know about you, but hurdling a toilet seat and firing a projectile at 200 miles per hour just don't seem to jive.
I am saddened that my sarcasm was so lost on you, Techie. Perhaps the flamethrower or exploding ball of fire do
jive? Perhaps we should(as someone mentioned earlier) put age limits on baseball bats, and shovels, and make sure they have warning labels that say something like "Warning! This bat/shovel could cause serious injury or death if not used correctly! -- ¡Advertencia! ¡Este bat/shovel podía causar lesión o la muerte seria si no usada correctamente!"? Some of you are just a little too paranoid.
