Another story out of St. Louis

From: 1960s toy commercial (Matel)
At Examiner.com, Kurt Hofmann notes anti-gun zealots in St. Louis are using toy gun buybacks as part of their anti-gun psy-ops where kids can turn in their toy guns for something more politically correct.

But I gotta ask: How many kids who grew up playing with toy guns in the past became ingrained to be gun-toting criminals as a result?

I'm thinking, for a lot of kids, toy guns and the play they facilitated were a first step to understanding firearms could be used for good or evil. And many a child graduated to a BB gun and then a rifle by their teenage years, learning gun safety and responsibility along the way.
