School Holds Toy Gun Buyback ProgramSubmitted by go213mph on Sun, 06/09/2013 - 11:09
It’s looks as if the firearm buyback craze has turned a new page – targeting toy guns.
Apparently Strobridge Elementary School in Hayward, CA will host a toy gun buyback this Saturday. Kids who turn in their plastic pistols, Nerf shooters and rubberband rifles will be entered to win a bicycle. So, actually it’s more like a raffle, but who’s splitting hairs?
Charles Hill, the school’s principal, explained, “Playing with toys guns, saying ‘I’m going to shoot you,’ desensitizes them, so as they get older, it’s easier for them to use a real gun.”
