But that doesn't help the ad make any sense because AR-15s are banned in pretty much every school in the country.
Ad is dumb.
Here's the deal on the chocolate eggs, in case you were wondering. "Kinder Chocolate Eggs" are chocolate eggs with a small plastic toy inside the egg. They are popular in Europe, but occasionally kids die or get sick when they pop the egg in their mouth and choke on the toy inside. There's a US law from the 1930s that bans the sale of most food that has an embedded non-food object inside that can't be seen. So, that's why Kinder eggs are banned. So now you know the rest of the story...
