The Boy Scouts of America fired off a missive to leaders reminding them of a long-standing rule – water gun fights and water balloon fights are not allowed.

So why does Boy Scout leadership have its neckerchief in a knot over Super Soakers?

Well, according to their official Scouting magazine, water guns are considered “simulated firearms.”

“It’s a good time to remind you that BSA policies prohibit pointing simulated firearms at people,” Bryan Wendell wrote on the BSA’s official leaders blog. “Yes, that includes water guns.”

I’m assuming that also means kids won’t be able to cool off by running through semi-automatic sprinklers.
