The American manufacturer Culper Precision got into a scandal over a pistol that looks like a LEGO constructor.
The Glock is called Block19 and looks like a child’s toy. According to representatives of Culper Precision, the company decided to make it in such a way as to emphasize “the true pleasure of shooting sports”. After that, a wave of criticism fell on the manufacturer. This decision was called irresponsible, because in the United States recently, the number of victims of firearms among minors has greatly increased.
Review of the product from a commenter on the Firearm Blog: "This, if real, is the most irresponsible gun modification I have seen in a long time. Perfect fodder for the 'Everytown for Gun Safety' people. Not a help." https://t.co/T36lzybfhW

The Danish LEGO company also reacted to the release of the “toy pistol”. She was informed of the sale of weapons by the organization Everytown for Gun Safety, which fights against gun violence. As a result, Culper Precision had to cancel the Block19 announcement. The pistol was planned to be sold for $549- $765.
