Guns Don't Kill People, Sectarian Violence Kills People

Iraq wants to ban imports of toy guns, saying kids are too aggressive. However, as the AP reports...
Iraq has no law forbidding ownership of real guns, and it was legal even during Saddam Hussein's dictatorship. Since the U.S.-led invasion, the rule has been that every household is permitted to have one firearm for self defense, and nearly every family owns some sort of gun.
It's not clear if the proposal would do anything about homemade toy arms... or WMD Play-Doh.
