Christian Parents Should Have Their Kids Play with Toy Guns

According to CBS, St. Louis, Pastor Rodney Francis, of the Washington Tabernacle Baptist Church, wants to keep kiddos away from guns, so this summer his church is planning a “toy gun buy back” program. How quaint. I kid you not: A. Toy. Gun. Buy. Back. Sounds like he’s setting up the next generation to be victimized slaves to bad people and policies.

Yep, Reverend Rodney “feels” he needs to do “everything (he) can to not allow our kids to get exposed to (guns) too early.” Aww … ain’t that sweet? Hey, maybe he could also hand out during that event some “kick me in the butt” signs for everyone’s back.

As a Christian I have a real problem with Pastor Francis vilifying the very tool that helped cudgel off tyrannical oppressors and afforded him the highly prized (and perishable) religious liberty he now enjoys on American soil.

    I strongly disagree!!! What a child learns while young, is what they will do when they are “grown up”. Yes, play with toy guns, but following all the rules of safe gun handling. My best friend’s child, when he was about 4-5 years old, was seen to roll up his tinker-toy gun in a blanket. When his father asked why, he said that it was what he had seen me do!

    My own sons are now proud Marines, who believe in the oath they took. They were not allowed to play like they were shooting each other, because I did not want them getting ahold of a real firearm and “playing with it”. I have seen several handguns (esp. the S&W Titanium revolver) that weighed less than a toy gun. My sons learned, using BB and pellet guns, that ALL guns were treated as loaded. Were never aimed as something they did not want to shoot. And shoot only when you want to “kill” what you were shooting at.

    This is not the way I see most other kids play, but that was they way they had to play in our house. And I kept a few planks of wood to show them what their first guns would do. And when we looked at that wood, I had them take the heaviest hammer they could weild and try to make an impression on the wood. Then they were given a lock-back knife, similar to what my sons carried in Scouts, and asked them to push it through the wood. Many of these kids were later in my Hunter Safety Courses,, and still talk to me about the game they have harvested. And to my knowledge, nobody from my courses have hurt themselves or someone else since – and I have taught about 1,100 people.

    There is a quote from the bible that makes a lot of sense here. ” Train up a child [a]in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

    Perhaps this fool pastor would prefer it if the parents gave their sons dolls to play with and insodoing they can all at the tender age of 4 to 6 years of age decide that they are transgender. now would that not be nice and Oh! so safe??
