    I will remove my kid from that school, this is just opening doors for all the molesters, child abusers and psychopath to pick this school.


    I am glad I moved out of Cali.

    How is a toy gun going to keep a molester away?

    Because of no more TOY guns?

    For the record, I think it's a dumb idea and a waste of money. Toy guns aren't the reason for violence. Parents need to start being PARENTS and teaching their kids right from wrong... along with some real respect for their fellow human beings.

    Ca is leading the way on "How to" program your kid at an early age. This next generation will programmed to be fearful guns, even toy guns.

    Wonder how some of us slightly older folks survived playing cowboys and indians and playing army. Every kid I knew in the sixties had a cowboy outfit and the lucky ones had two guns

    Will they buy back sticks and fingers that kids use for guns as well? Might as well buy back the little, green army men, kids play with - might cause them to go to war......... Sheesh! :huh:

    Poor little green army men, how many of those died a grisly death at the hands of kids back then

    Amen to that! When we were kids playing guns was a great form of indoor/mostly outdoor exercise! Great times!

    Some people don't even know what a guns looks like. When I was a little kid we use to play with toy guns all the time. We even practice quick draw. I have never shot anyone or even pointed a gun at anyone. My dad even had a loaded gun hanging up high and we never touch it. You need to teach your kids when they are young about guns. If they accidently get a gun that is when someone gets killed. It is not the gun it is the parents not teaching safety about guns.

    I don't have a problem with it. I was raised that there is no such thing as a toy gun. Now, I know that's not true, but I can see a parent not wanting their children to have toy guns, just like I can see a parent not wanting their boy to play with dolls.

    It's up to the parents, and if that's what parent want, that's what parents want.
