Enlarging the photo I saw 1 SKS, 1 Mini-14, and a M1 Carbine, but that’s about it on the semi-auto side.

A few days after the tragic Sandy Hook school murders, a young Marine in fatigues stationed himself at the front entrance of the Nashville elementary school his two children attend. Another parent heard him admit to a reporter that he was unarmed. The other parent commented that, even though the young Marine standing guard was not armed, it made him “feel better” to know he was there.

It’s often been observed that “perception is more important than reality”. The observation is often correct. It is never MORE CORRECT than for those we’ve come to call “liberals”. I prefer “statist” but “liberal” has morphed from its classic meaning to the other end of the spectrum so I’ll stay with it.

Since these folks operate almost entirely on EMOTION and FEELING, REALITY seldom allows FACTS to intrude upon the delusional worldview they have constructed and the comfort that provides them. It is that illogical, irrational and delusional mindset that prompts many of them to continue to quest after a Utopian society. The thought that such a society can and will never be achieved in a fallen world populated with failed sinners never penetrates whatever remains of their cognitive consciousness. It’s a DANGEROUS WORLD and, as the liberals continue to “define deviancy down”, it becomes more dangerous daily.

There is another, far more sinister, level of the “liberal” call for gun control.

It was Mencken who offered that “The urge to save humanity is most often a false front for the URGE TO RULE.” He clearly had been a student of the liberal politicians of his day. Were he alive today and able to observe the likes of Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Obama and the rest, he’d almost certainly have used far stronger language to frame his sage observation.

To conclude, dozens of studies reveal the FACTS concerning gun control. Those FACTS are that where firearms are widely and READILY available to law-abiding citizens, CRIME GOES DOWN! The liberals who willfully ignore the FACTUAL EVIDENCE and continue to call for gun control (i.e. the DISARMING of DECENT CITIZENS, thereby denying them the ability to exercise their God-given right to self-defense) are those about whom Mencken wrote: Their goal is NOT about preserving life. It is about the hell-bent pursuit of the impossible to achieve Utopian world where all are equal but some (that’d be THEM) are MORE equal than others (that’d be US).

There are many PRO-RTKABA videos on You Tube that your often busy lives don’t allow you to find on your own. Search there for “Gun Control”, watch them – and, more importantly – SHARE THEM with the folks in your orbit.

We’re in a fight. And losing will ultimately cost us much more than our right to our guns.

I saw what looks like a stainless colt diamondback or python in that pile. Makes me very sad.

Up to $ 250.00 per gun, where did Camden get all this buy-back money?

I would bet home burglaries rose dramatically during this period.

I wonder what percentage of registered guns where turned in by their proper owners?

How many gang-bangers turned in their 9mm handguns? None, I’m sure.

And not ONE WORD about boys not having MEN in their lives; At home, or at school, or in daycare. NO MEN. NO DISCIPLINE OF THE SORT ONLY MEN CAN BRING. As another FReeper said, “JUST WAIT ‘TIL YOUR FATHER GETS HOME” carries a LOT of weight and boys need that if they’re going to be taught to have self-respect, honor, dignity, self-discipline, etc.. Fear of God and Fear of authority. Adam was obviously fearless. Discipline needs to start at a YOUNG age or it’s counterproductive. Bring discipline BACK to the schools.

Well, if something did happen at least one person there would have a clue what to do.

Of course, even a raving lunatic would have the sense to just come back later.

Hell, I wonder how many of them were *bought* to put on display to make the haul looker better.

Does it look like that Camden Police Evidence locker was cleaned out for the photo op?

My BS meter broke when I saw this photo. Over 1,000 weapons turned in, in a city of 75,000? Something's not right here. Most 'weapon buy back' programs don't yield hardly any guns. The recent buy back done in Baltimore yielded 416 weapons out of a population of over 615,000 people.

It appears the gov't op to EXAGGERATE AMERICANS' APPROVAL OF GUN CONFISCATION is in full swing here. Sickening BS.

A reverse F&F the government is now fencing for thieves. We could shut this crap down in a hearbeat if we lable them conspirators to crime. “Elephant gun” except for some old black powder trade guns I suspect anything like that is valuable.

I suspect the success of any gun buyback program will depend less on the social conscience of the seller and more on the dismal state of the economy.

Need quick cash? Sell an old gun that’s been lying around under the bed for ten years.

Better than a payday loan.

"Enlarging the photo I saw 1 SKS, 1 Mini-14, and a M1 Carbine, but that’s about it on the semi-auto side."

I didn't see a bayonet lug on the M1 Carbine, so I'm guessing it's a post-war Iver Johnson. If that's the case, it's really more of a straight-pull bolt action than a semi-auto :-)
