According to Breitbart, “Baltimore kids who surrender toy guns receive “prizes” from “Peace Camp” volunteers.”

 

By Peaceful Means, a group created by Ralph E. Moore and Nawal Rajeh, founded a “Peace Camp.”

 Rajeh “persuaded Moore to launch a summer peace camp…after she watched a fight break out between two third-grade girls on a day that coincided with the anniversary of the Iraq War.”

The Baltimore Sun reported that “Moore compared taking toy guns to taking candy cigarettes.” Moore stated, “Orienting kids to smoking. I think toy guns, in many ways, are doing the same thing. The replica guns are what’s dangerous.”

Kids who handed over their toys were given a prize and their guns placed into an art project that featured a mosaic of “a brightly colored hand flashing a peace sign, surrounded by surrendered toy guns.” The mosaic “will be displayed in part to honor Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy shot and killed by Cleveland police in 2014 while playing with a toy gun at a community center.”

One six-year-old, Sebastian Taylor, reportedly surrendered his “two least favorite toy guns in exchange for a ball for his older brother and a set of walkie-talkies for himself.”

It all has to do with how you raise the child, in my opinion. If a child is taught the safety and dangers a gun can bring, then their attitudes will be less likely to be violent.

What do you think? Do toy guns create violent children, or is it harmless?
