    There is that. There is also the notion that certain toys are no longer acceptable, even though they very much are. It's an extreme political and social statement they have no business getting involved with.

    I just don't think it's going to be successful at all. I think the kids are going to be like "cool, a new bike" and then get more toy guns on their birthdays or whatever.

    You're getting awfully worked up over something that has nothing to do with you. Whatever happened to states' rights and all that. If a CA school wants to have a gun exchange program, let them do it. Not everybody has to feel about guns the way you do.

    But aren't they really just having a toy exchange? Or are the elementary schools kid toting in 9mm's and .38 specials for a chance to win a bike?

    Hey, if you can't handle reading the opinions of others about the topic, maybe you should get out of the kitchen.

    Yeah I don't see what the big deal is either. The way I feel is if a parent doesn't want their kid to have or play with a toy gun that kid is probably not going to own one anyway to trade in. And if they do play with toy guns and their parents are okay with it they are not going to trade them in. I mean what kind of parent is against guns but lets their kids play with a toy one? It doesn't make sense.

    To each their own I guess and if a parent wants to trade in a toy gun that they own but dont want their child to play with for a book who cares?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Do they still have rules against bringing real guns to schools?
