Site Suspended

Hello, our site Kids-Army.com is suspended. Originally this was for airsoft guns, but we have removed links to them to comply with your policy. I sent an appeal request, and in response I was sent images pointing to our toy guns, and a message stating airsoft, and bb guns are not allowed.

 

The policy states "Functional devices that appear to discharge a projectile at high velocity". None of our toy guns function as real guns, and none of them fire at high velocities. Most of them are just models, that do not fire anything. We also have rubber dart guns, and a few water guns. No airsoft, or bb guns are on our site.

Your site promotes many guns / weapons which could cause harm / injury. This is not allowed.
See for example:

That is not a paintball, it is a gell gun/dart gun, and it cannot cause injury. It basically fires a blob of jelly. About as dangerous as throwing jello at someone.

"or that appear to be real guns" --

of course, google is the final arbiter of all policies.

Okay, we will be relisting our airsoft, and will no longer use adwords for this site.
