>> When you take guns off the streets you save lives, City Councilman E.W. Cromartiesaid <<
Oh yea. Disarming law-abiding citizens worked really well in Washington DC didn't it?
E.W. Cromartie is a moron. Like all gun grabbers, facts mean nothing. Hope the folks there can get rid of this idiot before the crime rate there soars.
Unfortunately, the reason the police keep doing things like this is that there are people that don't want guns in their homes (husband dies, etc.). Now if there was competition with the police, such as an org (non-profit?) that buys the guns from the people, and the people used the org instead of the police the police would stop. The org would comprise of pro-gun individuals that pay for the guns of their choice from the selection brought to "buy back" (hate that term, the guns were not sold buy the police or others doing the buying)/liberation sale/adoption. Need to come up with a catchy term to replace "buy back".
Maybe we should have a 'liberal politician buyback program'. Anyone turning in a liberal politician gets a check, and a hazard is taken off the streets.
