You'll shoot your eye out, kid.

Editor's note --  The Gazette does not endorse a BB gun which is not an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle! 

And of course, pop culture has given us 
an indelible impression of the desirability of 
children’s guns during that period. 

“You’ll shoot your eye out!”

Twas the season for sexism, smoking Santas, and deadly weapons. Vintage holiday advertising. web urbanist

Editor's note -- (Update) The Gazette (presumptuously) assumes readers are aware that the featured quote is from the 1983 film classic A Christmas Story -- 
a traditional 24-hour block of Christmas programming on Turner Broadcasting Network (TBN).
