    Gun buybacks are now for kids, too. Trade in your nerf gun, get a scoop of icecream.

    Unfortunately this isn't a joke.

    I shouldn't have called it a gun buyback in the thread title, what a bogus term.

    I laughed when they announced that they'd be doing this for violent video games. You trade in a game, and you get one pint I think, no matter what the game costs. As a kid, I never would have given up my NERF guns for ice cream. Why? Because NERF guns last longer! Hopefully a lot of kids will see things the way I did!

    This is where our hypersensitive culture is going. In the end, in the limits, they'll get a pat on the head the reward for selling their human rights.

    Of course they do. The empirical evidence is clear. Back when firearms were even more common and toy guns/playing war were common place for boys, we had a much more scary and violent society. /s

    This place is a northern suburb of San Francisco, a wretched hive of "liberalism". I just came back from there and the people seem to be quite content without their right to bear arms, well, oblivious to it. The state and its agents, not surprisingly, really like guns......

    I couldn't believe the traffic fines. Advertisements for $500 HOV lane violations, stupid red light loot gathering cameras, etc.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.
