Skip to comments.Second Gun Buyback Nets 42 Weapons
Posted on 02/17/2013 3:57:39 AM PST by marktwain
Organizers say they know the gun collections are just a drop into the bucket but they're hoping to save lives. "People who are coming out are people who realize we're not trying take away their 2nd amendment. We're just trying to make it safe for our children and grandchildren who to live at home with grandparents... Or documented or registered the right way."
Also in front of the church were people offering to buy the guns off of people before they reached the buyback event. No word if anyone sold their guns.
The guns turned into the buyback will be destroyed by the Cincinnati Police Department.

Unless, of course, the purpose of the turn in was for propaganda, and not to "get guns off of the street".

Now you know they’ve been instructed by the regime on how to use psychology to get people to cow down and hand ‘em over. I’m sure it’s something like smile and ask nicely...for now.. O’s a master at cowing and bowing down to terrorist elements. He will tell people anything that he thinks they want to hear to get them to acede to his “demands” if he thinks he doesn’t have the upper hand to force them to do what he wants.
So I call BS on the nice tactic; that’s only because he knows there’s a guns in just about every other home in the U.S. and mist likely an arsenal in many of them. We’re dealing with a full-blown dictator in bloom that once he strips the people of their only means of real self-defense will really reveal his true self. Trying to remove him with a bullet wouldn’t work because he would rise up again in 3 days with horns and the full power of Satan coursing through his veins.../s
Criminals NEVER turn their weapons in...go to buy backs...unless they have a non-working piece of crap that they need meth money for...
It has been shown time-and-time again that buy backs do NOT work...just one more propaganda story from the State Run Media to play on emotions...
As noted this is a useless gesture, probably for publicity or to make the congregation feel they have helped to solve a problem. I suspect that most of the weapons turned in were cheap or of very poor quality, and most certainly turned in by already law abiding citizens. I think channeling the funds spent on guns into an inner city youth program would do far more in the long run. As long as there is one gun out there (and there always will be) and an ill or criminal person, there will be a problem. We need to change the attitude of our youth and get away from this killing for disrespect mentality that prevails.
If they aren’t “against” guns, then why are they destroying them?
I go to gun buybacks all the time, where people who no longer need/want a gun sells it to someone who does. These buy backs are called gun shows and the Left hates them, which puts the lie to their initial assertion.
They need better advertising, so there can be a proper gun show outside.
There was no video because this was a staged event and they couldn’t generate even a token crowd. They will probably have the same 42 guns turned in again at the next propaganda meeting.
The cops need to quit selling guns. Then they wouldn’t have to buy them back.
This gun buyback is just an illusion to convince the “sheep”
that our federal keepers are doing all they can to make America “safe”
