Wuss Alert: Pastor Plans Toy Gun Buyback Program

Published on February 26, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-02-26 at 9.41.15 AMWhile St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson is raising funds for a gun buyback program, Pastor Rodney Francis of the Washington Tabernacle Baptist Church wants to catch kids before they even think about wielding a weapon.

His church is planning a toy gun buyback later this summer.

Francis says there are no violent video games, gory movies or toy weapons in his family’s house.

“My wife and I feel that we need to do everything we can to not allow our kids to get exposed to this too early. They’re going to get exposed to it but we can protect them early on so they don’t get a distorted view of what those can do to the human body,” he explained.
