Toy gun buy back plan

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 18 December, 2012 - 8:44 AM
An Adelaide mother wants a national toy gun buy back scheme to be introduced.

A South Australian mother believes we should embark on a toy gun buy back program. Panorama mother-of-two Sam Paior offered her sons five dollars for each toy gun they throw out. Tim Gossage spoke to Sam to find out why she feels Australian children need to be protected from toy guns.

  • The "Toy Gun" buy back is a great idea! It plants a seed in the mind of our next generation of law-makers and law-breakers.

    Good luck to her, at least she is having a go - what are the rest of us doing, as individuals, to make a difference.

  • This lady isn't insane, Speedy. She's making a very valid point in that "toy" guns and replicas which look like the real thing are frequently used in robberies and assaults.
    To point one of these "toys" in an intimadatory manner
    at another person is tantamount to a threat with the real thing and may be viewed as a criminal act.

  • What a nutcase this woman is. A toy gun buy back? She must be on drugs. How about a ritalin buy back? Or how about actually confining mentally disturbed people until they are adjudged sane and safe, if not keep them confined. Since when do the law abiding have to be judged by the standards of the insane?
