    It's probably done to avoid any potential for confusion between a Nerf gun and a real one ... in the event that someone were to paint the Nerf gun black and take it to school.
    I also suspect that mechanically the lightweight Nerf darts and/or balls require different mechanisms and approaches to fire them efficiently and effectively ... compared to cartridges that leverage a primer and smokeless powder to expel bullets from a rifled barrel using expanding gasses.  After all, it's tough to create a blowback, blow forward, gas operated, or recoil operated Nerf gun when the Nerf darts/balls don't have cases or powder from which create blowback; don't have powder driving bullets to create blow forward; don't entail expanding gasses to allow for direct impingement or piston-driven gas operated systems; and don't create recoil energy, themselves, which can be leveraged for recoil-based autoloading.
    Put another way, if the action is used to fire/launch a radically different type of ammunition -- then you should expect the action, itself, to be designed for that difference and, thus, be radically different, itself ... when compared with other actions.

    And the people he is wanting to have confirmed for his cabinet are pretty horrible people for the most part. I think Pence picked most of these people since they seem rational but have a core of evil running through them. The only two that actually look Trump picked them are the guy from Goldman Sachs (which owes money to and blasted during his campaign) and the king of bankrupticies.
    I can't wait until my obamacare is repealed. I am going to look at my coworker who voted for Trump, and I am going to laugh in his face, and rub it in that he had obamacare too.
    The people I know who said Hillary was the bigger evil, I point blank told them that Trump only told the truth 4% of the time. In a hundred word speech, Hello I'm Donald Trump were the only truthful things he said. Benghazi: Cleared ELEVEN TIMES (And the guy on the committee getting the cabinet seat still swears Hillary was such a mastermind that she covered up her involvement, but she can't cover an email server that a private foundation found through FOIAs.) Emails: Nothing on them, nothing but reports coming from her department that never went out from her server (which shows you how stupid the FBI is because they destroyed a diplomat's career because they couldn't figure out part of her job is to talk to foreign nationals. Oopsie.) Clinton Foundation: The guy that was complaining the most was getting chucked out for CoI because he was building his side business while using Bill Clinton as a fundraiser. Foundation paid for Chelsea's wedding, which apparently is not true according to an audit. The list goes on and I have had to show how wrong the people I work with are to their faces. And they are still Trump's better. After that I was like you are the biggest fracking idiots ever.
    And I have gotten to rub it in about what they choose, and every time Trump does something stupid, I go you voted for him.
    What would really make my day is Trump gets impeached, arrested, and tried over his own Foundation, and the fact he was committing fraud with it. I would laugh my Shadow laugh at my coworkers, and say you voted for him.

    I don't know that PC/Anti-PC is the right metric here. Trek, in its various incarnations, has always supported a progressive (or even liberal) social and political stance. Equality, the futility of war*, the elimination of poverty (and, as a corollary, the elimination of materialism altogether) a big protective government that has solved all of humanity's problems--this is the essence of the franchise.
    *When you consider that the original series ran at the height of American involvement in Vietnam, the Prime Directive makes perfect sense.

    Truths for heroes of all ages, by one of the best ever--
    The Lone Ranger Creed

    I believe that to have a friend, a man must be one. That all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world. That God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it himself. In being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right. That a man should make the most of what equipment he has. That “this government, of the people, by the people, and for the people,” shall live always. That men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number. That sooner or later…somewhere…somehow…we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken. That all things change, but the truth, and the truth alone lives on forever. I believe in my Creator, my country, my fellow man.

    Just throw it in the water.
    If it sinks, it's a girl ant.

    Entry #238
    Standard ID Reference - Porcinum*
    Widely regarded as the 3rd most addictive substance in the galaxy, Porcinum hails from the Sol system, specifically the 3rd planet Terra.  It is frequently ingested by the semi-intelligent race known as Humans**, who consider it a delicacy.  Porcinum is currently illegal in 73 Galactic sectors due its addictive properties and extremely deleterious effect on the cardiovascular systems of most intelligent beings.
    *  On Terra, Porcinum is referred to colloquially as 'bacon'.
    ** As many of my readers are aware, Humans are generally feared and notorious for their nihilistic natures because of their need to devour, absorb, imbibe or inhale anything that it is harmful to them.  Incidentally, in some parts of the galaxy, Humans are regarded with faint amusement.  In small pockets of the Pan-Galactic Fellowship the phrase 'as clueless as a Human' is used as a minor humorous jab due to the Humans belief that they are the most intelligent species on their planet, when, in fact, our studies have shown they are 16th.

    This might be closer to what Pariah was looking for--
    Zappers--The "Saturday Night Specials" of laser blasters.  Cheaply manufactured and usually sold in quantity for fast money, these directed-energy weapons are infamous through the interstellar underworld for their low cost and lack of reliability.  Ranging from small-sized that fit easily in the palm of a hand with only a few shots in the power cell, to heavier two-handed models with high-capacity power cells capable of rapid fire--not to mention capable of exploding if discharged at too high a rate of fire for too long.
    The primary customers for zappers are street gangs looking for high levels of disposable firepower at a moment's notice, or any other groups that are truly violent, exceedingly desperate, or both.  Needless to say, zappers are highly illegal, even on worlds where personal weapons possession is freely tolerated, and possession of one is punishable by fines or imprisonment.
