This isn’t the end of the world. But given that I can’t find a cap gun anywhere, but this stuff is apparently available at the local Target gives one a sense of what our society has become.
Playmobil has had a reputation for realism, especially when it comes to weapons and vehicles. Like it or not, modern police forces have become military forces, and civilians have become enemy combatants. Playmobil toys merely reflect that reality.
Resistance comes in the form of internet comments. The reviews at Amazon are notably libertarian:
“Finally we have the right kind of toy to teach children how to be completely subservient to authority…”
“Perfect for cops to pretend they’re soldiers!”
