Brainwashing the next generation against guns: they may not take our guns today but the next generation won’t even own them!
Nice to know no one was injured in the ‘toy’ gun incident!

A 10-year-old Alexandria boy who brought a toy gun to school on Tuesday has been charged.
The boy, whose name is not being released, was charged as a juvenile with brandishing a weapon, police said.
On Monday, the boy showed the gun to at least one other student during a bus ride home from Douglas MacArthur Elementary School. He neglected to mention that the weapon was fake, Alexandria police spokeswoman Ashley Hildebrandt said.
School staff notified police about the incident Tuesday morning, and police spoke to school administrators before the boy arrived. When the boy got to the school, authorities found a toy replica weapon with an orange tip in his backpack, police said.
The boy was taken into custody and was transported to a juvenile detention center. No one was injured during the incident.
