    REally what needs to be done is this:

    I invent a time machine.

    Go back in time.

    Don't have kids.

    Because no matter what i do they're going to turn into fat mass murdering drug addicts.

    And that's just not what I want.

    These children won't be able to read or write but at least they'll know the dangers of biting a Pop Tart into the shape of a gun.

    Let me guess, the book choices in the exchange were "My Two Daddies", "Global Warming and Me", "and "A child's introduction to Saul Alinsky."

    In California, this isn't even considered shamless.

    It doesn't make me feel one way or the other. Much ado about nothing.

    I have no problem with it as long as it is voluntary. That said, kids are going to be hounding their parents to buy toy guns so they can do this so they are just creating demand for the item they want to get rid of in the same way dentists buying candy has really upped the trick or treat numbers in my hood.

    I dont think this is neceasarily the case as a whole. I think the Democratic Party is strengthening their hold on their base, and as a consequence that segment of society is becoming more passive. I think non-Democrats will be less eaaily deceived.

    Well, its imprinting kids, by any means possible, that guns are the devil. That they are to be not only feared, but condemned.

    It is far from "nothing". It is very long-term "something", and if you had a clue, you would know this.

    Toy guns? Wow! That's really getting carried away. I really don't understand what they think it will accomplish when the kids' parents can just buy them more cheap toy guns. You have nerf guns, squirt guns, all kinds of different toy guns. So the kids get a bike and toy guns too!
