Gun buyback for kids? It . i disagree with the man's mentality (marked in BOLD) that instilling fear in a person is the best way to prepare them for life. Fear is for the ignorant and uneducated. These men should teach firearm safety with the Nerf weapons. Safely demonstrate the consequences of not handling or treating a weapon with respect. Inform, not frighten. i don't, my family does not, even the children in my family do not fear a firearm nearly as much as an idiot holding a weapon. Educate, then let the knowledge guide these kids. if a kid doesn't want a gun or to be around them, they won't bother with them. i like guns myself, but i don't really own any. but i chose that. i wasn't "bullied" into a state of fear. and hell, what "intelligent" kid will sacrifice a $40 Nerf Gatling Gun for a $2 piece of pizza and school supplies? I am kinda tired of the word "educate" being used to alleviate the world's fears, but this seems to be one case where people don't want to remove that fear.
