This is a model for other communities to follow: Offer more than the stupid buy up campaign, and gain some nice guns in the bargain.

Of course, be sure to follow the local laws. I notice the police had no problem with the collectors. Turning in a $500 glock for $50 is really stupid, though.

Liz Julee, a Ceasefire Oregon Educational Foundation board member, looked at the men and women at the parking lot entrances and refused to accept that they were there only to add to their gun collections.

“I think it’s political,” Julee said.

I wonder how the victims or families of victims would feel if they knew the key piece of evidence “vanished” through a feel-good gun buy back program?

“”Jim Clark, also a Eugene collector, said he had another reason for hoping to persuade people to sell their turn-in guns to him. “They’re potentially destroying guns that may have been used in crimes,“ Clark said. “A criminal could bring a gun here that was used in a crime and it would be destroyed.””

He wouldn’t be bothered by buying and owning such a gun?

How do they know criminals weren’t there to buy them also?

“I think it’s political,” Julee said. “I think it’s unfortunate that they feel they need to have an oppositional presence.”

Um, they probably find it "unfortunate" that YOU feel the need to have a presence "oppositional" to a clearly stated Constitutional right. Deal with it; they have to.

Darn Capitalists offering more money than the socialists can afford to pay.

Sounds like a good move to me.

The Glock was stupid, but the M1903 Springfield was the best buy.
