LP News Online: March 2003: Manhattan Libertarians start (toy) Guns for Tots campaign
[January 28] Tongues firmly in cheeks, the Manhattan Libertarian Party has launched a "Guns for Tots" drive to protest a new city gun-control bill.
Toy guns, that is.
On January 22, Manhattan LP spokesman Jim Lesczynski publicly announced the "philanthropic" campaign, which will work to give toy guns -- including water pistols and cap guns -- to the city's children.
The drive is a response to a new bill that would prohibit the sale or possession of any toy gun that resembles a real weapon.
