Here’s a list of ten weird things that are illegal in the United States, while semi-automatic rifles aren’t.


Kinder Surprise Eggs

The FDA banned this candy because of the non-nutritive object embedded inside since it violates the 1938 Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. According to a spokesperson for Kinder manufacturer Ferrero: "While sold in many countries, this product is banned from the US because young children can choke on it. Working together at the Import Safety Commercial Targeting and Analysis Center, these partner agencies are able to coordinate and streamline federal efforts to address import safety issues, including the illegal importation of Kinder Eggs. The safety of its consumers, especially children, is and has always been Ferrero’s number one priority. Ferrero is absolutely dedicated to providing the safest products possible, from product design to production to final use, going beyond regulatory requirements."



Haggis is a Scottish traditional dish which has been banned in the United States since 1971 because it contains sheep’s lung, which has been prohibited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The chief executive of Scottish Federation of Meat Traders Douglas Scott said: "There is no evidence anywhere that haggis could pose a risk. Scottish butchers cannot send haggis to customers relatives in the United States like to do across Europe and Ireland, despite the demand for this iconic product."

Toy Guns

The US citizens have the right to keep real guns but it's illegal to keep a toy gun in Lag Vegas. County commissioners passed an ordinance to ban "dangerous objects" like toy guns, blades longer than 3 inches, electrical generators, skateboards, and rollerblade's to make the sidewalks safer.

Capt. Todd Fasulo with the Metropolitan Police Department said: "The goal is to curb dangerous items that are in the public right of way that is used or displayed in a way that could be dangerous to the public."

Dictionary Banned in California School Classroom
