Anti-Gunners Use Toy Gun Buyback Program to Make Children 'Say No' to Guns
We all know of the left's grudge against boomstickery. Progressives, if that's what you'd call them, won't rest until they round up every projectile-pushing device for orderly destruction. Even the relatively harmless ones kids use to shoot foam darts at one another. In fact, a group of anti-gunners in New York are doing a buyback program for kiddie guns.
Officials in Hempstead support the efforts of Sean Acosta, a former New York City police officer behind the Long Island Toy Gun Exchange.
Acosta launched the program in an effort to safeguard local kids. He said that many toy guns, including water pistols and plastic replica guns, can be mistaken for real weapons on the street and that oftentimes police cannot tell the difference on first glance.
“Saying no to guns is important — even toy guns,” Hempstead Village Mayor Don Ryan told local TV station WABC.
Kids who visit the village’s offices can turn in their toy guns for educational toys and sporting goods.
“The purpose is to offer a safe alternative to toy guns,” said Hempstead Village Trustee LaMont Johnson, according to WABC. “We don’t want the kids playing with guns. Guns are dangerous.”
Obviously, I don't want younglings to be fooling around with the boomsticks without supervision. That should go without saying. Though, I'm having a tough time seeing how teaching the kiddos to hand over their Nerf guns has anything to do with gun safety.
Let's get real here. This is little more than a ploy by anti-gunner lefties to condition the upcoming generations to relinquish their Second Amendment rights with smiles on their faces. They're trying to make firearms confiscation look like a fun little game. Like Duck-Duck-Goose, but with a whole lot more totalitarianism.
In true leftist fashion, they're trying to get em while they're young. If they can desensitize kiddies to the idea of a gun buyback now, they'll have a much easier time taking their grown-up lead-slingers when they're of the legal age.
