The Director of elementary school in Haywardn, California Strobridge, held this Saturday, June 8 exchange of toys. The goal: encourage children to get rid of their plastic gun and prefer books or bicycles!
California Strobridge elementary school did everything to keep firearms away from children… even when they’re plastic! The Director of the school launched Saturday, June 8 an exchange for toys campaign through which children could exchange their weapons in plastic against books, or even win a bicycle. The measure, presented by the Huffington Post aims to eliminate weapons plastic of the school yard.
“Play with plastic pistols desensitize children.”
« Play with plastic pistols, aim is the one others claiming ‘I’ll shoot you’ desensitizes children. “When they get older it becomes easier for them to use real guns ‘, explains the Principal Charles Hill. ” Some of the guns I confiscated could, if it were stowed in the belt, go to a real gun.” I can well imagine school leaders arrive with a toy and pretend whether it’s a real. It may seem funny, but it can also become dramatic.”
The idea is inspired by the buyback program of weapons that multiply in the United States, as in San Francisco or Oakland. Since a few months after the shooting of Newtown which caused the death of 25 people in Sandy Hook, New Jersey School, awaken consciences. Coperations contribute to clean the street of as many weapons as possible by offering to buy back in case the more guns to fire possible. 100 guns were so out of the street. Method applied by the headmaster Charles Hill, who intends to put healthier children’s toys in the hands of his protégés.
