I'm not 100% sure, but I heard it's because some dumbass choked on the plastic egg inside.

They said the main reason for the ban is because people may choke on the egg, not knowing it was there or the toy. This investigation occurred because over 4 years, some dumbass parents gave their children the egg and the kids unfortunately died after choking on the toy that was not suitable for them in the first place.

OK, first of all, where the **** are these people who have never heard of a Kinder Surprise egg that are not aware that there is a toy present inside of it?

Second, how the **** do you manage to swallow the toy container? It's pretty damn big and difficult to swallow and unless you attempt to swallow the chocolate egg whole, there is no way you wont notice the surprise egg. And if its the toy you can choke on, then don't give it to people under the age of 3 just like Europe and the rest of the world.

Kinder egg kills 4 people and it's made illegal.

Guns have killed thousands in America alone but remains legal.

On a side note, just because some people are dumb enough to give their children under the age of three an egg containing a toy unsuitable for their age doesn't mean every smart person in America has to suffer.

Guns are legal so law abiding Americans can protect themselves. I think we've seen from prohibition as well as marijuana illegality that simply making something illegal does not make the problem go away. People who are going to commit a crime with a gun are going to get one regardless of whether it is legal or not. Plus if you make guns illegal you turn many normally law abiding Americans into criminals. Also, if guns were made illegal, it would increase illegal gun trade activity, which would in turn generate unregulated revenue that could possibly go to terrorist cells and drug cartels. But kinder surprises being illegal is a bit outlandish

188 op here. Another point I neglected to mention. Do you know what the crime rate in Switzerland is? It's almost 0%. You know why. Well I'm sure there are many factors, but almost everyone in Switzerland owns an assault rifle

Yes but unfortuantly "the right to have kinder eggs" is not in our constitution, while the right to have guns is :(

I understand why they did it back then, but I don't know I have mixed feelings about guns now.

Guns are manufactured for injuring people, chocolate eggs aren't. Its silly to ban something for successfully carrying out its purpose.

Injuring people? Don't kid yourself. They're made to kill people.

Oh, you say it's ridiculous to ban something which carries out its purpose? Your logic fails there when certain drugs, such as cocaine, are illegal...Hmm, tell me, what's the purpose of cocaine? To get people a drug high. Does it do that? I don't have a personal experience, but from what I've viewed I'd guess yes, yes it does.

Actually cocaine was a form of medicine Up in till about 1922.Cocaine,Heroin,Marijuana and many other "bad" drugs have many and usually much better effects than that of lab drugs.Not trying to be a dick.

It's cool. Nice to learn something new.

But that dude's logic still fails either way.
