Post Newtown Gun Hysteria Reaches New Height

Or New Low Depending On Your Point Of View

The lunacy of the gun grabbers never ceases to amaze me.  Their tendency to completely overreact to even the most innocuous things that could possibly, maybe, kinda-sorta represent a gun is unparalleled by any other group that comes to mind.

If you have been paying any attention to the news since the horrific events at Sandy Hook Elementary, you have seen the stories:

  • 8 year old boy suspended over pop tart gun
  • 5 year old girl suspended for talking about her Hello Kitty bubble gun
  • two 7 year old boys suspended for pointing pencils at each other pretending they were guns
  • 6 year old boy gets detention and forced to apologize for bringing Lego character’s tiny toy gun (1″ long) on the bus
  • a school board wanting a deaf child to change how he signs his name, Hunter, because it looks similar to a finger gun (actually an older incident, but ridiculous nonetheless)
  • and sadly, there are many more examples which have occurred in just the last six months

Not to be outdone, a California school had to up the ante on the anti-gun propaganda!  On Saturday, June 8, 2013, a public school in Hayward, CA held a “Toy Gun Buyback”.  Yes, you read that right.  Strobridge Elementary School held a toy gun buyback, and in return for their toy guns, they received books.

Why would they do something so ridiculously stupid you ask?  Despite any evidence to support his stance, and actual evidence to the contrary, “Strobridge Elementary Principal Charles Hill said he decided to host the exchange because he thinks playing with toy guns desensitizes children to firearms and increases the chance they’ll use the real ones when they grow up.”

Yes, you heard me right, there is abundant evidence showing there is no link between toy guns and violence. Here is one article on Web MD discussing that.

The bigger problem here is not the seemingly well intentioned, although completely misguided efforts of the principal and those who share the mindset.  The problem is that those people are the ones educating our children and they are instilling them with a completely irrational fear of inanimate objects.  Children have played with toy weapons longer than recorded history.  The difference is that in the past they were also taught to value human life, something sadly lacking in today’s liberal pro-choice dominated public education system.

    The latest in pseudo-think fads. All we need is for some sitcom-celeb to make a statement: soon, everyone is repeating it. It apparently (in their world) makes one unbelievably cool and “with-it” to be anti-gun, anti-business, anti-Christian, pro-Muslim and pro-left.

    This is nothing more than stealth indoctrination on guns in general and the United States constitution in particular . Don’t be fooled by the indoctrinators , they know EXACTLY what they are doing .

    those examples display the mental weakness that has infected the cowards that have been influenced by the communists, beginning before WWII, but accelerating in the late 50s…….we have a serious problem that is denied by most pseudo intellectuals, we have a “societal cancer” and it needs to be treated now by extermination…….

      My parents left the Demoncratic party in the early 60’s because of it’s communist/socialist leanings. The whole “take from one to give to another” manure. It stinks to high heaven.

    AMEN BROTHER!!!!!!!!! Parents do something, it is your children we are talking about, Please do something. You have the power and the responsibility and the authority. DO SOMETHING.

    So violent movies and video games have no effect on our youth but a plastic squirt gun or a pop tart does? Oh silly me, hollywood donates much more money to the dems than apparently Mattel does so hollywood gets a free ride. We’ll just take it out on kids toys. We’ll save the kids unless you have enough money. Then, screw em, money talks.
