A Lawn Dart Slingshot Is a Good Reminder Why They're Still Illegal

It’s more surprising that lawn darts weren’t banned until 1988 in the US, instead of the day after they first went on sale. And if you need a good reminder as to why you can no longer easily buy a set, Joerg Sprave built a lawn dart slingshot cannon that explains why.

YouTube is filled with videos of people getting hurt playing with regular darts, and it’s surely not a recent phenomenon. So why anyone thought that making darts larger and heavier would be a good idea will forever remain a mystery.
