For the third year in a row, Hempstead, New York sponsored a “Toy Gun Buyback” that encouraged kids to give up their toy guns in exchange for toys which Leftists deem to be “safer.” In the spirit of equality some children were given a toy gun so they could trade it in for a “safe” toy.

Hempstead Village Trustee LaMont Johnson said, “The purpose is to offer a safe alternative to toy guns. We don’t want the kids playing with guns. Guns are dangerous.” Mayor Don Ryan of Hempstead Village agreed, “Saying no to guns is important, even toy guns.”
Meanwhile, the same liberals who love this kind of political indoctrination theater, enthusiastically support the idea that there is a “safe” way to shoot up IV drugs.
Coming to a city near you and just approved in Denver by the Democrat city council, is a proposal for a safe injection site, which would be the first of its kind in the nation. If approved by the Democrat-controlled Legislature, the program would allow addicts to defy federal law and inject heroin, methamphetamine or other illicit drugs in a “supervised environment.” In case of an overdose, they would be brought back from the brink of death. If they don’t overdose that day, it’s counted as a success. In any case, they’ll never be called junkies, as that would “stigmatize” them.
This deadly, dangerous, screwball idea is patterned after an existing site in Vancouver aptly called “Incite.” Google and the Left (often one and the same) are so strongly in support of this idea that it is difficult to find articles that oppose it.
Buried under numerous pages of articles extolling the virtues of these sites, are articles like one by Jason Rantz, who visited the Vancouver site to see for himself. He urges anyone who thinks this is a good idea to do the same.
Rantz was appalled not only that addicts are being enabled to continue their deadly habit, but at how Incite has affected the surrounding neighborhood. He observed the area at 9:45 in the morning and described it as a “one-stop shop to feed your heroin addiction.” He witnessed an open drug deal and dozens of homeless people, some lying nearly lifeless, others dazed and meandering. He saw litter everywhere and observed some tourists being harassed by the homeless.
Another idea the Left thinks is perfectly safe is the subversion of our current immigration laws to allow an endless stream of unvetted illegal aliens into our country. That includes MS-13 gang members whom Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have defended because they ought not be referred to as “animals.”
In fact, in 2017, 174 House Democrats voted against legislation that would have helped to ensure that aliens associated with a gang would not be admitted into the United States; In February 2018, Senate Democrats blocked legislation that would have cracked down on dangerous sanctuary cities.
