Guns, as you may already know, are loud, violent things that kill people. What could be possibly be wrong with making them seem more kid-friendly by making them resemble old toys? Well, Precision Syndicate tried by creating the Nintendo Zapper glock and caused an uproar in the process.
Finally… We were waiting for someone to let us do this. We weren't the first to do it but WOW, this glock turned out good!

The main source of controversy here is that people initially thought that Precision Syndicate’s Nintend Zapper glock was a commercial product, available to anyone. It’s not though, fortunately. It was a custom job, with Syndicate originally saying that, “we were waiting for someone to let us do this.” However, there’s was such a fuss that the company’s released the following statement:
“In light of the “Nintendo Glock” drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be. This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past 2 days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible. Thank you all for your support! Oh, and please.. keep your guns locked up and away from children, it’s common sense.”
How do you feel about this story? Did the public overreact or did Precision Syndicate act irresponsibly?
