    Wink Something smells wrong here...

    I'm with you, Jes. The comments reported sound like standard anti rhetoric to me. I have a hard time believing that gun owners would espouse views like:

    "They're just taking up space around the house, so, I brought them in."

    "They were sitting around. It's in my best interests just to bring'em down." (Sound like programming to you, too?)

    "We weren't using it. Too much crime out here anyway," (A good reason to keep a firearm, no? Doesn't sound plausible.)

    "Too many guns out there that are not properly protected from kids or from society, so this is a great event," (Um, Brady campaign worker, anyone?)

    Yeah, I think that this is bunk. I wish that someone would keep up with these "neighborhood people" and see where they really live. Ridiculous.

    Wonder how many LEOs were tied up for hours in this useless publicity stunt?

  4. Speaking from personal observation

    While I was approaching and buying firearms from the people standing in line at one of these events.....before the police told me to get lost, or get arrested.........

    I subsequently noticed that there were "2" lines.

    Cops brought a number of junk weapons, which they substituted for the nicer, higher up firearms being brought in.

    The cops then went home with their new toys, for a deep, deep, discount. Go figure.

    Well, if they were leaving them lying around the house with children, grandchildren, idiot adults running around, I think it is a good move to get them away from those folks before a tragedy happens.

    Sure, some of the guns (like the "sophisticated assault rifle") were probably worth a lot more than $50 but these don't sound much like people I would want to have guns if they didn't care enough to learn their value or secure them properly.
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

    I still think I should buy a bunch of gift cards and hold my own Gun Turn In program. 147 guns @ $50 = 147 guns for $735

    You need to get that on film. I am sure that's illegal or at the very least against department policy.

    Or at likely "official" department policy :-)

    I'm sure that most of this stuff is junk, but probability says that some of these things have historic value and they are just going off to the crusher. A shame.

    Why would God invent something like whiskey? To keep the Irish from ruling the world of course.

    147 x 50 = 7350. Still well worth it though.

    If they don't want it, for whatever reason, well, whatever. To each his own. I just can't believe that the announcement of a buy-back event is the first time it occures to these dunces that they now have a chance to get some money for their gun. Gun shows, gun auction websites, gun stores, the newspaper, craigslist. Even a frikin pawn shop will give you more than $50 for a semi-decent gun.

    Most of the people that show up with their guns at these event are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.

    Exactly. How [email protected]@@ink stupid are these people. Even if you don't want the gun. Go to a pawn shop.
