Go to [url]www.packing.org[/url] and read the topic title 'gun buyback targets kids'. It is a local MacDonald's and some state agency buying back toy guns because they 'send the wrong message'. What an absolute joke this entire subject has become on the part of the anti's. This is really pathetic. You can straight to the article here: [url]http://www.insidevc.com/vcs/ox/article/0,1375,VCS_238_392124,00.html[/url]

The sinister message behind this is that "Guns are bad....unless it's the police that have them." I've never seen it so blatantly advertised as in this article. Just another step in the constant process of turning good citizens into compliant drones (I don't like the term "sheeple", but it's the best I've heard so far) that can be easily handled by an expanding government. They do a nice job of turning each of us against the other. I remember one theme of the great number of Louis L'Amour books (what a writer!) was that the "warrior" was looked up to with something like awe, during times of war. Once the hard times were past, the great mass of common citizenry couldn't get rid of him fast enough. The warrior is an embarrassment to the gentle public-- a throwback to less civilized times-- until there's trouble. Then, he's pulled out of the closet, dusted off, and sent to give his life for an ungrateful public who cannot, or will not, do the job themselves. Makes me want to cry.

How can they buy BACK something they never owned in the first place.

Let's see, piece of wood, some nails, toy gun. What's the going rate for toy guns and can they be mailed?

How much are they paying? If this comes to my area I could become a very rich man! As they give me money for my fake AK I could say "Thank you very much, now I can afford a real one!" Kyle

I keep looking for a couple of my toy M-16s I had when I was a kid. They were about 3/4 size and looked just like the real thing. I would love to give them to my two boys, but I think my mother tossed them. Too, bad they were really cool. No stupid orange crap. I'd pay to get those back. Hey can I get in on this buy back!!! guns7.62

I believe that the article said they were swapping hamburger kid's meals and a frisbee for every gun turned in. I can get squirt guns, like 3 for $1 at Dollar General. Makes it really cheap to take my kids to lunch! I wonder if it's a preban frisbee?

"Saturday, more than 120 children dumped their toy guns in a large bin or signed a pledge for nonviolence" Yeah right, that is the same as when they get 5year olds to sign a "true love waits" card. Some of them will, but most of them won't care later in life.
