School Holds Toy Gun Buyback Program

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.”

You can get squirt guns 3 for a buck at the dollar store.

Just sayin'.

why are pandas exempt from RICO statutes?

Makes it easier to use a gun?

For what? If this is a justification for his spent Saturday, he should be more clear.

If he means to shoot a good person, he left out the psychotic freak part.

"If it turns out there are psychotic freaks among them, we don't need it to be easier for them to use a gun." See? That makes more sense for wasting a Saturday to help the darling little children.

"as they get older, it’s easier for them to use a real gun.”

I find the same logic applies to my relationships with women.

Having played with toy doll girls my entire childhood, I easily transferred this experience to real girls. It is most easy and natural for me to style their hair, change their clothing, and bend their arms and legs behind their backs.

Total bullsheet.
Ever since the touchy-feely feminists demonized testosterone driven boys with their toy guns, the amount of senseless use of real guns has gone up up up.

Undo what Wilson did

Jaw dropping

Do they accept sticks that look like guns? That is what I used when I was a child. If they don't accept stick guns would that warrant some kind of legal recourse? I had a piece of lighter pine that looked like a futuristic laser rifle. It was bad to the bone and I killed lots of bad guys with it. I don't know if I would have traded it in for a "chance" to win a bicycle.

This is perfect psychology though. Have a toy gun buy back but only one person actually gets anything for their gun. The kids who don't get the bike will be disappointed and will think bad things about gun buy backs. Then those children find out that a real gun buy back guarantees you get MONEY. OMG that is much more fair than a buy back lottery.

Sorry, my brain is wandering. I'm such a conspiracy theorist.

Conditioning

at it's finest. Gotta get them while they're young!
