What about a cigarette buy back program?
That should curb smoking /sarc
Gun buyback ???
Did they own the guns to begin with ???
years ago in denver there was a church downtown doing this. i had 2 that don’t work so i took them in. long line. as soon as they announced there was no more money 90+% of the folks, including me, took our guns and went home
Finally they stopped after seeing it was crap they were buying off criminals.
Our rights are freedom or religion which means I do not accept turd poking marriage
My rights are having a gun and shall not be infringed
my state has a right the 10th
we have the 14th for the debt\\\and this piece of crap wants to rip our rights away whilst saying those who poke feces with their penis have rights, killing babies have rights.
The GOP should be out there right now on ever camera and saying this plus calling this socialism and calling out the media and of course tell everyone that obama has no clue what is going on because he has been surrounded by this Chicago thugs in a house where he never hears anyone else and say he is out of touch with our laws as his Powell the fool who still claims he;s a republican much like Geraldo
Hey, that gives me an idea...
If “they” ever show up at my door asking questions about my firearms,
maybe I could just tell them I sold them all at a gun-buy-back program.
It’s important to note that in deals like this, cash might not be the most persuasive deal for people looking to sell their guns to the gun controllers. Like in Tucson, recently, they were offering $50 cards for Safeway grocery stores.
However, Safeway is an overpriced store, so you can buy a lot less there than you can at several other groceries. So if they are offering Safeway cards, and you offer say Fry’s (Kroger) cards, they will get much more for the money.
And to make the deal even better, at no cost, if you can give them a copy of the weekly advertisements you picked up at the store, for free, before you came, they can see right there what is on sale, they can get even more, and will be that much more interested.
Since people offering to sell good guns for a fraction of their value are either naive or desperate, you’re still giving them a much better deal.
Dumb question...I always wonder what is done with all of the returned firearms? How many get re-sold out the back door? Do they keep stats on crimes committed with buy back program guns?
A gun buyback is a great way for criminals to get rid of guns they have used in crimes. Turn in the murder weapon, get some hard cash for it, and let the government melt down anything that might be used for ballistics matching.
So, who will turn in their guns?
(1) People with no use for them, i.e. the kind of people who are least likely to use them illegally.
(2) Criminals who have fired them in crimes, and now want to get rid of evidence that might be used against them.
A few days ago some local news outlet in CT was celebrating the fact that something like 60 guns were turned in in one CT city. A few days later one gun store had over 300 people show up to purchase one of the 100 S&W M&P15 Sport rifles, a 30 round mag and ammo they got in. Of course the latter was deemed “controversial” by the media.
