St. Louis pastor announces plan to buy back toy guns2/26/2013
We gotta give Pastor Rodney Francis an A+ for creativity and effort. The pastor of the Washington Tabernacle Baptist church in St. Louis is planning on tackling the gun problem by nipping it in the bud. His church is planning a "buyback" of kids’ toy guns. Francis says parents are encouraged to trade in their kids' toy weapons — swords, guns, you name it — for a more "wholesome" toy. Why? To help fight the culture of violence, Francis explains — a culture that he says kids are getting exposed to at a younger and younger age. Francis declares that there are no violent toys or games at his house, and he and his wife feel they should do "everything we can to not allow our kids to get exposed to this too early." [Source]
