Good luck, lefties. If your kids are like mine, that just ain’t happening.
A community in Buffalo, New York has launched a ‘toy gun exchange’ reminiscent of the gun buyback programs that have been used in some jurisdictions.
After all, you can make them gun shaped.
Or perhaps Lego?
A freaking stick?
That’s how kids work. If they don’t have a gun, they’ll make one.
It’s called imagination.
Leonard Lane is a community leader and is understandably concerned about street violence.
“Whatever you put in a child’s hands that’s what he feels comfortable with and you put a toy gun in his hands at an early age and when he gets older he’s going to want the real thing,” said Leonard Lane, president of Buffalo F.A.T.H.E.R.S organization
That’s why Lane is encouraging parents to give up their child’s toy guns this Christmas and exchange it for a different toy, as part of the annual Toy Gun Exchange at the Delavan Grider community center.

Why? Because they’ll shoot their eye out with a toy gun?
I’m sure that Lane and his group mean well, but that’s not really helping.
If you teach kids to fear guns, that actually puts them at a disadvantage for their own self-defense.
The gun isn’t the problem, like anything, it’s the way that one uses it.
Boys naturally want to be the ‘good guys’ and fight evil and injustice. They want to be the heroes, the conquerers, the slayers of dragons, the righter of wrongs.
Sometimes, those heroes have guns.
Our men and women in law enforcement and in the military are prime examples. They are worth emulating, they are real-life heroes.
And don’t just think it’s boys.
As any responsible gun owner will tell you, it’s the way you raise your kids.
Banning things works, though, right?
That’s why we’ve won that war on drugs — which is a big part of the gun crime that is occurring on the streets.
But then, do you really expect the gun-grabbers to understand that do you?
I’d rather teach my kids to obey Jesus.
The men and women in law enforcement that serve and protect us are commendable, but the response time means that they don’t get there when the bullets are flying.
Are you willing to wait 20 minutes for the police to show up?
It’s an issue that needs to be discussed within our churches and addressed by our church leaders.
We need some righteous badassery in the church to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our brothers and sisters in Christ from the preventable evil in this world.
We need to Obey Jesus.
Including what he said in Luke 22:36.
He [Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.
