Ya I read that awhile ago. Like I needed another reason not to watch that show. Still it's a dumb thing to do.

It's a kids show, I don't see why everyone is being riled up. Does seeing cartoon guns get you off? Relax! I think it's going to be awesome show (especially for the target audience!) And just being they will be shooting lasers instead of bullets, I don't think it's going to ruin the show.

I hate how reality meddles into the affairs of fiction, so inconsiderate

It's stupid to act as if guns would traumatize children. The problem is not guns, the problem is wackos killing people.

I'm not talking whether it makes sense to you or not. I am just saying, why does it matter. The show isn't going to get any better if the guns looked like guns or lasers. And I think the goal of WB is first to not have people attack Batman, and second to avoid subliminal messaging about how guns are cool. OVerall it won't affect the quality of the show, and if it isn't real enough for you, then I will recommend for you to stop watching kid shows

It is unfortunate when real life gets in the way of artistic expression.......
