Wondering if this will result in another backwards-aimed gun show?
Could you please let the other Florida Freepers know?
Actually, I don’t have a problem with this if this causes some gang bangers to turn in ther guns, then fine. However, I highly doubt the effectiveness here. Gang bangers aren’t stupid either, they steal someone’s gun and then collect the gift card, or they’ll turn in some piece of junk while keeping their own stash.
:: The agency will buy any gun no questions asked and give the person turning it in a $50 Target gift card. ::
Funny...isn’t this how the so-called “gun loophole” works?
No questions until they run the serial numbers and then do ballistics testing on it. Then they’ll be at your door asking plenty of questions.
Pittance paid confiscation.
Hopefully some shrewd buyers will be outside giving better deals.
Since schools can suspend students for having a gun made of Popsicle sticks or even a photograph of a weapon, shouldn’t they qualify for the $50 gun buy back program?
Either it is a weapon or not a weapon. We can’t have the schools saying one thing and the police saying another.
The bangers and the regular criminals aren’t going to turn their good weapons in. They may turn in some crap weapons that they have stolen, so they can purchase some drugs with the money.
I’ll give them $100 target card
This is the same city that is trying to lynch George Zimmerman over the self defense capping of Trayvon Martin
Crime has exploded in Sanford since the self defense capping. Criminals know they can get away with a lot in Sanford since the Zimmerman lynch job
“the department on Friday “
I didn’t know the US had a department on Friday!.
Sorry, it IS Friday tho.
Today? I finally get one near me and I can’t make it on short notice. And they are only giving $50!
Sanford must have spent a lot of cash dumping their white chief and hiring a black one from “near Chicago” a week or so ago. You just knew that after the Trayvon Martin case they were going to limit their choice of colors for consideration.
