4-Alflona lla.J Uppef Des Moln«» Tuesday, February 2t, 1056 BB Guns'Proving Harmful Ask Boys To Observe Law Fenlon—The little BB gun is causing a stir in Fenton. It secrns as though a number of the Fenton boys have them and have been using them. There is a town ordinance that forbids the firing of the guns within the city limits. One of the biggest problems, lias been the headache of trying to keep bulbs in the street lights. Also, a number of Fenton citizens have had to replace windows in their garages and other buildings. , j Then there are the pets around town who have no love for the guns. Some of the animals have been injured. The most serious mis-use of the guns, has been the shooting at other children. Numerous children have complainted at having been hit with the guns. True as it may be, that the boys are only shooting at the legs to see them jump, it is still most dangerous. What if there were a miss and the' BB hits the eye? It could very.easily happen, and once is all it' would take for an eye. • Parents of boys who have BB guns may not be aware such things are going on. The citizens of Fenton are asking the parents of boys who own BB guns to see that their boys observe the town ordinance, which forbids the shooting of guns within the city limits. If this is done, these other instances will take care of themselves. And it is stated that if this is not heeded, drastic steps are to be taken.
