A 3-year-old boy was shot in the head and killed last week when he started playing with a pink handgun he thought was a toy. As of now, investigators have ruled that the boy and his 7-year-old sister were playing with the weapon when the horrific incident took place. His grandparents were sitting in the living room when this happened, while the kids were in a bedroom.
There seems to have been a boom in "designer" handguns recently. In fact, just the other day, Kim Kardashian posted a photo of a jewel-encrusted gun to her Instagram (it's since been taken down). Whatever your thoughts are on guns are, fact is, they're not toys. They're weapons. And they kill people. Bejeweling or blinging them out like they're a cellphone case kind of takes the focus off of what their purpose is, and makes them seem "fun," "girly," or worst case scenario -- like a toy.
Don't believe me? Here are 7 "pretty guns" that are pretty inappropriate.
