Providence, E. Providence RI Hoplophobes Host Toy Gun Exchanges

You can't make this stuff up.

Children in Providence and East Providence can trade toy guns for real candy or toys on Friday and Saturday.

In Providence, children can feed their toy guns to the "Bash-O-Matic," a device designed and built by students at the New England Institute of Technology and the Rhode Island School of Design, Rhode Island Attorney General Patrick C. Lynch said.

The annual "Holiday Toy Gun Bash" will give an alternate toy to each child who relinquishes a gun from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Pleasant View Elementary School, 50 Obadiah Brown Road, Providence.

Lynch will speak at noon, and he and other community leaders will discuss other ways to reduce gun violence and juvenile violence. Lynch will also take on challengers in a 3-point basketball shooting contest. There will be refreshments, games, a visit from Santa Claus, music and raffles by Hot 106, as well as a K-9 demonstration and a child ID program.

The New England Institute of Technology and the Rhode Island School of Design are creating Hoplophobes on campus now!. Just wait a few years when they become involved in politics.

Get em while they are young.
