The toy gun shoots real bullets? New products from U.S. Guns cause a sensation in public opinion

According to US media reports, the Danish toy manufacturer Lego (Lego) stated on July 14 that it has asked a Utah gun company (Culper Precision) to stop producing a new pistol that looks like a Lego toy gun but can actually fire real bullets. . Lego said in a brief statement: We have contacted the company and they have agreed to remove the product from their website and will no longer produce or sell such products in the future. Brandon Scott, president of Culper Precision, also confirmed in an interview that he received an email from Lego asking them to stop using or selling the product. Scott said a lawyer told him that if he continued to provide the product, Lego might sue his company. Scott would not disclose how many he sold, but he said there were less than 20. He said that he decided to adopt the Lego company's suggestion. He said that Lego's request was very polite, but straightforward. About a week ago, a company that customizes guns in Utah, the United States, first launched a new product that it called an interesting: a kit that wrapped a Glock pistol in red, yellow, and blue Lego bricks. The lethal weapon is recast to look exactly like children's toys. The company said that the design was named BLOCK19, and the price ranged from US$549 to US$765, depending on the circumstances. The company argued that personal defense is a God-given right, and gun ownership is protected by the Constitution. The company declared on its website: There is a sense of satisfaction that can only be found in shooting sports. This is just a small way to break the anti-gun activists' remarks and let people notice the fact that shooting sports are super fun! The US media pointed out that it’s not funny that every year thousands of children inadvertently shoot themselves or others because they find a gun and pull the trigger. This is not mentioned on the sales page. Culper Precision did not immediately respond to a message requesting further comment. As of July 14, the product page of BLOCK19 has been deleted. As soon as the news of this new product spread on the Internet, it immediately caused a sensation in public opinion. Many people think that this idea is seriously misguided and reminded that it will inevitably come at the cost of children’s lives. Kristen Song’s 15-year-old son committed suicide by accidentally shooting himself in 2018. When she saw the pictures of the design for the first time, she thought it was a joke, and then realized it wasn’t: How can this be legal? Another Internet user wrote: If this is true, this is the most irresponsible gun modification I have seen in a long time. Some netizens wrote: It is obviously a bad idea to make lethal weapons look like children's toys. I'm not trying to judge, but it's really hard for me to understand why some people find this interesting. Nothing can explain your stupidity better than making your real gun look like a toy. This is the stupidest idea I have ever seen. Shannon Watts, founder of the gun control organization Moms Demand Action, expressed concern about the product last week, calling it a recipe for disaster. She said in a statement: We have already seen tragedies happen. There are unsafe guns around children. They don't look like toys. The organization's research found that between March and December 2020, the number of deaths caused by children shooting unintentionally by themselves or others has increased by more than 30% compared with the same period in the previous year. This growth coincides with the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, a record surge in gun sales in the United States. This year, Utah joined the ranks of several other states and relaxed the requirement that people obtain permission to carry firearms in public. Lego was founded in 1932 by Ol Kirk Christiansen. The name derives from the two Danish words LEg GOdt, which means Play Well. Obviously, the design of a deadly gun as a Lego toy is really full of irony.
