    Buyback program for squirt guns

    Nerf guns and water pistols are the latest target for the gun grabbers. Community activists in Buffalo, N.Y., started a toy-buyback program on Monday designed to instill a fear of firearms in the city’s youth.

    I wish I didn't live on the other side of the country... I would LOVE to show up and have a Nerf Open Carry Protest... I would even bring my boys. Maybe even try to get a few deals before they're melted down

    This is horrible! All that fat, cholesterol, calories and grease being shoved in the children's face should be illegal. Are they trying to kill these kids, don't they know how dangerous a life style this is? They should be thinking of the children!

    If I was there you know what I would do? I would get my kids the $0.99 guns, have them have a squirt gun fight while in line for free pizza that cost more than the guns, and then give them new guns after they get the pizza and right in front of the people putting on the buyback.

    Take those guns, because when you finally get 'in shape' you won't be able to reach your holster:

    Pretty sure you'd be arrested for possessing a deadly weapon, negligent discharge of a deadly weapon and attempted murder. It is, afterall, New York.

    As the OP has stated, this is an attempt to deamonize anything that looks like a gun, including the old "make a fist and extend the index finger and shout 'Bang!' hand gun".

    I'd like to make a fist and extend a different finger towards those behind this effort.

    It's bad enough we have to deal with cops who both ignore the law and are often-times ignorant of what the law actually is, soccer moms and little old ladies of both sexes who get their knickers all twisted just by seeing a handgun, and bureaucrats who are afraid that if they cannot control us they may find themselves out of their jobs. Now TPTB are trying to make children afraid to play Cops&Robbers/Cowboys&Indians/ watever other games kids play to sort out societal rules and roles because they are afraid if the little kids find out that The Gun is Civilization http://munchkinwrangler.wordpress.co...-civilization/ they will not be able to control the next generation either.

    I hope their "buy back" (Hey! It was never yours to begin with! Therefore you cannot buy it back!) falls flat on its bureaucratic face.

    stay safe.

    Next on their agenda, a buyback program targeting the following deadly weapons:

    swimming pools
    automobiles
    kitchen knives
    screwdrivers
    hammers
    sticks (especially popsicle sticks)
    stones...

    Good thing they're doing it in Buffalo. There's way too many stones for them to buy around here.

    But they're welcome to try.

    Don't forget tiny toy parts with choking hazards and scissors, running with.

    Don't forget pillows! Heaven forbid a pillow fight break out at a sorority house because that would be genocide.

    I would so love it if they did this in WA. I would take my son and have him turn in a $.99 squirt gun, and tell the organizers that after we were done with the pizza we were going to the range to shoot real guns. OC'ing of course.
