In response to a proposed legislative ban on the sale of toy guns in New York City (which I also oppose), the Manhattan Libertarian Party came up with protest/program "Guns for Tots." For some reason, the Party chose to distribute these toy weapons outside of an East Harlem school (P.S. 72). Parents were outraged and felt that the implication is that their largely black and hispanic children would be most likely to like guns. A challenge to Libertarians: defend this total asshole move by a major local Libertarian Party. Note: I did hear of this story from the Daily Show.
