Long Island Goes Beyond Gun Control To Thought Control For Kids

Every so often you come across a news story that you’re not sure if you should find funny or if you should find it scary. This is one of those news stories.

Here’s the deal: Long Island, New York, has started a gun buy back program, but not just any gun buy back program. No, this program is a gun buy back program for toy guns.

That’s not a joke. On December 13, 2018, Beth Whitehouse wrote,

Kids can trade their toy guns for other toys on Thursday, in a program aiming to change the culture around gun ownership, organizers say.

The Long Island Toy Gun Exchange Program begins at 2 p.m. at Brierley Park, 65 Dartmouth St., Hempstead. Each child can receive one toy for whatever water pistols, Nerf guns and other toy guns they turn in.

The new toys are being donated by Sean Acosta of Oyster Bay, a former New York City police officer who now helps people grieve their taxes. “It has to start at a young age,” Acosta says. “If we can get them to say, ‘It’s not cool to carry these toy guns,’ then maybe when they get older, they won’t ever carry a real gun.”

This isn’t the first time Hempstead has hosted an exchange. The village hosted such a program in 2015 and 2016 with Manhattan philanthropist Jean Shafiroff. In 2016, about 100 children traded toy guns for footballs, dolls and games.

“We want children to know guns are not a toy,” says LaMont Johnson, Hempstead school board president and Hempstead Village trustee.

So, when you look at this on the surface, you probably got a chuckle out of it, too. I certainly did. Who really thinks that buying toy guns from children is going to make the world a safer place?

But, then, you realize that they aren’t really trying to do something about real gun violence with this event. No, the organizers of this event want to brainwash children into thinking that guns aren’t something that you want to have or use. In other words, though they probably wouldn’t say it this way, they want to program kids to be sitting ducks when a violent criminal or a predatory government comes after them.

So, it’s come down to attempts at mind control of little children.

How should we fight back? Buy guns. Teach your children how to use them safely and responsibly. And teach them how not to be the victim.

  1. Obviously the people who run Long Island, New York, are now scared to death about toy guns! Oh, quick, let’s hide under the bed!

  2. It’s a national shame, that instead of putting gun toting thugs behind bars, rather than letting them back on the streets, the powers that be, would rather spend billions of taxpayer dollars restricting law-abiding gun owners rights in an effort to make themselves more re-electable. Criminals do not care about gun laws and will kill you with a brick, broken bottle, knife, club or any other object they can think of to make a “deadly weapon” out of, and all the anti-gun hysterics want to do is take away your basic right to self defense. How many times have you saw in the news ” …the suspect was a convicted felon, prohibited from possessing a firearm…” yet he(or she) got their gun from an illegal source probably right after being released from custody by a judge who scheduled a trial for 6 to 8 weeks from release date, allowing said suspect to continue his life of crime until his court date, which will probably end with a suspended sentence or probation!

    • The gun issue has never been about public safety or massive crime sprees. It is and always has been about attempting to disarm the public to eliminate any resistance to whatever government should choose to do. Annihilation, euthanasia, genocide, imprisonment of political opposition and practicing ones religious beliefs. An individual has no inalienable rights if they do not have the means to defend them.

    • All school mass shooting are caused by many factors
      Generally the individual had behavior problems and was given drugs
      Then because he behaved differently his class mates picked, belittled or bullied him
      The staff did nothing to stop this, and allowed it to get worse
      The administration turned a blind eye to what was happening
      The Board choose to keep quiet to protect the schools reputation
      The police did nothing because no one complained
      The situation got so bad the belittled student decided to get even
      NOW everyone blames the weapon and the belittled student for what happened !!!!!
      This could have been all avoided if action was taken when all this started

      • in addition to the list that you have prepared you can add:
        Paid cowards hide behind cruiser in parking lot

        Coward sheriff ordered that no one should enter the building during the firing..

        the clowns in the upper reaches of the fb & i chose not to investigate clowns due to being too busy performing an anal exam on Donald Trump and anyone that even waved at him during the last 50 years..

  3. WOW!!! ONCE AGAIN someone from New York comes up with the answer. BUY BACK toy guns. Where would we be if we did not have someone with this kind of intelligence to help us out. WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK IT. DUH !!!

  4. Perhaps we should give the “surrendered” toy guns to their (those who sponser such idiocy) bodyguards and see how that works.

  5. A school district in Illinois has started a 6 week firearms course included in their PT classes.
    I for one think this is a very good Idea. The young people will come out with a better understanding of the what and how of guns, to make them more informed. It is my understanding that no firearms will be used in this class.

  6. This is sad beyond words. In the 20th Century more people were rnurdered by their own governments than died as a result of external aggression. Hitler, Mao, Stalin, The Ottoman Turks, Pol Pot & the Khmer Rouge, Rwanda, the “Ethnic Cleansings” of Bosnia…Herzegovina…Srebreniça, The Argentine Junta of the 1960s, Hafez al Assad, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein… the list goes on and on. And in almost Every Single instance, the systematic methodical murder/extermination/starvation proceeded After the government criminalized private gun ownership, confiscated the weapons so no one could effectively resist, and rounded up anyone they didn’t trust. These suicidal self-loathing sheeple can’t be bothered to read history or face reality.

  7. What the cultural elitists apparently do not realize is that children, typically boys, will turn a leaf, a stick, a feather, a chicken bone, anything into a pretend gun. I did and I have seen any number of very young children do the same things. It is a matter of time before the elitists will come to the conclusion that boys need to be properly educated or medicated in order to repress those innate predispositions to early stages of gun violence. Obviously the result of having a toy gun. Wait! that is already being done: medicating mostly boys who parents, teachers and guidance counselors will diagnose as ADHD faster than you can blink. Better yet, why not just turn boys into girls! That way Society would be so much better off. So many brilliant ideas emerge from the leftist minds.

    • they are already doing that with Boys, they are trying to turn them into Sissys, panzy ass little wimps.

  8. Being from LONG ISLAND (suffolk county) , these people do not live in the real world . Every crook on the island must have had a good laugh over this one. Guns do NOT kill People KILL and crooks could care LESS about the law. These people are trying to make WIMPS out of our kids. Just look at the school system these kids go to. It is a disaster. I wonder if HISTORY is even taught in school.

    • Only the history that the left wants to tell the children. it’s their made to fit their Agenda crap. You Know where the Republicans were the slave holders, the Holicost didn’t really happen, Socialism really works in Europe and has for years and Everyone there loves it.

  10. It is not a secret that the Dirty Dems want us unarmed, not to mention the RHINO’s. Unarming a nation is the easiest way to enslave it. Guns are a tool, they are only as bad as the intentions of the individual using it. Text written on a page, ( any Law ) never stopped anything.

  11. I came from Ny moved to Fl in 1984, when I was in ny I never owned a gun in fact I hated guns because my older brother died with accidental gun discharge. My granddaughter was murdered by a sick person with a gun in Texas. I should hate guns correct .. no the gun didn’t cause these deaths deranged people did. I am 86 A Korean vet I respect guns and yes in today’s world with all the violence out there I will protect my family or any body else if need be . Protect our police and those who may need help someday .. let’s hope we never need to use a gun . God bless American where we have the second amendment . You young people better protect you rights and th Constitutio. Ame

    • thank you for your service and as you have stated many of us have watched as the country descends into the cesspool… the former once proud democrapo pervert parasite party is leading the way and the worthless $luts in the media and hollow woody are rooting them on..

  12. Next thing you know will be ” BABY RECALL BACK ” for a different model! These SOCIAL SCIENTISTS NEED A PERMENMANT ROOM IN THE FUNNY FARM DEPARTMENT! BEST WAY ON KIDS AND GUNS IS TO TEACH TYHEM THE PROPER USE AND MAINTENANCE! NOT DISENFRANCHISING THEM ALTOGETHER!

  13. These kids are smart. They’ll trade their guns for a new toy and go trade the new toy for a better gun. Bet the moron that thought this thing up never thought of that did he. Idiots.

  14. So when are they going to Ban on Line Shoot’em up’s games Transformer and GI Joe Toys and Movies that Promote and Idolize Gun Violence Police shows on TV Cowboy and Super Hero Movies and Cartoons. Or how about Locking them in the Basement and just feeding them through a slot in a door till they die of old age. Or you could be a Responsible Parent and Teach your Children Right from Wrong seeing as so Many Parents Have given up Parental Rights to the State in their Education and leave it to That Entity to install Moral Values in which a Lot of those Entities have NONE. Be a Responsible Parent even if it is a Toy They need to be taught What it’s Proper use is.

  15. I had toy guns until I turned 10 and then got a real one. My Dad taught me to use it safely. I had an incident with a loaded shotgun that further understanding of gun safety and what it can do if not used properly. I have had guns since ten years of age and none of them have ever hurt anyone, let alone, kill them. But I know what to do with one if I am threatened with harm by someone who tells me what I must abide by their ideas that are harmful to other people.

  16. Great! I’m going to sponsor the same type of program in my area!
    Any little boy that will surrender in a dolly, will be able to pick their choice of 2 balls!

    • HE’s an EX police officer…It’s just the Politicians way of controlling the future masses, Our kids and Grandkids, they want as slaves and Human fodder for their BULLSHIT!!..Mind control just like in the song by Pink FLLOYD..Another brick in the wall, If you don’t follow the RULES, YOU DIE!! I won’t let this happen to my Children or Grandchildren!! And as far as trhat gfoes, I DO NOT RECOGNIZE the DEMON Party OR thier so-called leadership!!SCREW THEM!! THEY ARE MORALLY CORRUPT and WRONG!!

  17. Ok heres the deal,take on old broken unreparable fire arm,trun it in for the money.THEN TAKE THE MONEY AND GO OUT AND BUY A BRAND NEW FIRE ARM ??JUST MY OPINION BUT IT WILL DRIVE THE ANTI GUNNERS CRAZY.

  18. THIS IS THE FIRST STEP IN CONTROLLING THE PEOPLE BY A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT. TIME FOR THE PEOPLE TO STOP THIS BULLSHIT AND TELL THE GOVERNMENT THAT WE ARE A FREE PEOPLE AND WILL “NOT” BE BE RUN BY LIBERAL SOCIALIST COMMUNIST NAZIS. OUR FOREFATHERS PUT THE 2nd AMENDMENT IN THE CONSTITUTION TO STOP THIS TYPE OF ACTION BY A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT AND GIVE THE CITIZENS THE RIGHT AND ARMS TO STOP THEM. “TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE”.

  19. Last name Acosta…. Hmmm is this piece of lying [media] a family member of the CNN dirtbag in the District of Criminals?

  20. I hope these people get there heads out from there rectumuses. When you have only seconds to live the cops are only minutes away actually you’re dead when they get there>>Its better to have a gun and not need it than to need it and not have it???HEY WHY DON’T YOU ASK PETER KING IF HE HAS OR CARRIES A GUN???hIS ANSWER MIGHT SURPRISE YOU.
