Sorry friend...did not see this other post.

But...that being said, what a GREAT IDEA, huh?

This is how you stick it to the other side.

I would love to see other activist groups doing this as well.

On the one hand ... it’s good, and word can get around.

On the other hand, the “liberals” might get wise to this.

‘”They recognized it for the junk it was,” Boch said of the sale. “At one of the locations, one of the detectives was very tenacious ... And hit the guys with a flurry of questions like ‘Where the hell did you get these, from a graveyard?’ “’

The police never fail to amuse/amaze. I wonder (yes, just thinking out loud here) why they were so upset. Was it b/c they’re taking these for their own??? I know, I know they’d NEVER do such a thing. LOL...

I thought these buy backs (how could that be since they never owned them in the first place???) were no questions asked. Seems they do things a bit diff in IL.

So many questions so little time.....

Let them.

They said “unwanted guns”. These were unwanted. They followed the rules to the letter.

I want to see this in every city, in every town, in every blurb where the libtards instigate this crap.

It’s about time our side started taking the fight right to THEIR faces.

Guess they figured they’d haul in some choice pieces for their private collections.

Or...more likely...they just realized they’d been outsmarted at one of their little disarmament schemes.

Every little victory for our side is a HUGE loss for the other side. I’ll take it.

LFOD, brother.

Anytime!!! Glad I could help.

We need good news and little victories. Especially one like this.

Slapping the libtards in the face with this is satisfying.

Saw this first thing in the morning, had a lift to the spirit all day as a result.

Actually....got the same lift as thinking about Adrienne Barbeau’s rack, now that I think of it...

Man’s got to have his priorities...

Liberal cities have tough gun laws but the young ghetto thugs seem to have no problem getting their hands on them, what gives?

I’m always amazed how some FReepers can turn just about anything into a cop bashing post or thread. I assume you called them “pigs” in the 60’s while you protested the war.

Astonishing.

“..I assume you called them “pigs” in the 60’s while you protested the war...”

Umm...I wasn’t even a teenager in the 60’s. No, I don’t call them “pigs”. Not all of them are on the wrong side. But some of them sure as hell are.

And I DO resent the abuse of authority and abuse of the power that we grant them, and some of them attempt - especially political-appointee thugs the one in Philly.

And it isn’t “cop bashing”. It’s Gun Control bashing, and anybody that espouses disarming law abiding citizens through stupid schemes like these SHOULD be publicly ridiculed and “bashed”, as you say.

And if cops go along with it, rather than going after REAL criminals - like, say, go into “da hood” and try disarming gang bangers, instead of worrying about stupid gun buyback schemes (tell me...how do you “buy back” something you didn’t buy in the first place?), maybe they’d actually make the cities a little safer.

But hey...this is “cop bashing” so never mind.

Enlighten us. What is it about the post that astonishes you.

For the record I’d never call them pigs, JBT perhaps but never pigs. In the 60s I was only a kid unconcerned about the hippies. Nice try tho to label, it missed the mark.
