When Jonathan Pring posted images on Facebook showing the moment he went from being a current gun owner to a former gun owner, he knew hed get some response.
What he didnt expect was for the post to go viral.
"I didn't wake up yesterday planning to become the local Phoenix poster child for the American gun debate, Pring said.
The pictures show Pring willingly handing over his firearms, which included a machine gun and a pistol, to a uniformed Phoenix police officer in the living room of his Phoenix home.
Pring, whos a dual citizen of the U.S. and Great Britain, said he called the departments non-emergency number asking to hand over his guns to them after watching the horror unfold in Las Vegas this week.

It seems to me that Mr. Pring remains primarily a "British Subject" as opposed to an "American Citizen" in his ways of thinking about the concepts of freedom and responsibility. His actions remind us that we should never underestimate the capacity of sheeple to find new ways to render themselves even more helpless while bleating there way through life.
But I repeat myself.
Oh yes you did. Stunts are always done with a goal in mind.
He posted it on Facebook, and he doesn’t think there would be a response. What an idiot.

A statement worthy of repeating!

Yep or how else would the media even pick up on this? So many little attention whoring snowflakes.
OMG what a brave man. Because of his bravery, I would totally be inspired to hand my firearm collection over to the police if it hadn’t already sunk to the bottom of lake Erie in that tragic but unreported boating accident a while back.
A MACHINE GUN you say.
A fully-automatic Class III weapon.
Complete with 200$ Tax Stamp and a letter of BATF approval.
Or, perhaps the reporter is lying. Again.
Ya know; there are plenty of kids just turning 18 who could use a .22 rifle and a .380 pistol. I guess someone on the PD got it instead. Maybe they have a kid in mind who could use these mild firearms.
Who called the press to take his grinning photo turning over his “machine gun” (SMH) to the police? Who called the press to write a fawning story about what an enlightened, super guy he is?
And then he doesn’t expect to be a “poster boy” for something?
I’d expect that any “death threats” he gets are either greatly exaggerated or outright lies.
Can you imagine the phone call?
‘Hello, I’m so-and-so, and I was so motivated by the Vegas business....that I want to give up all my weapons. Could you please send an officer out to such-and-such address, and pick them up?”
The cop might even suggested to the guy...why don’t you just go down to the local gun shop and resell them....to get some of your money back?
Younger than 18.
It’s the moron himself who actually called it a “machine gun” if you watch the video.
Laz, as I am quite certain you can see, the long gun is clearly a 10/22 with after-market stock and other accessories. The media these days...
Dead giveaway that this is a George Soros production for the media to pounce on.
I think every lefty should 'put their money where their mouth is' and do that.
The criminals and home invaders will sure appreciate it.
You didn’t just return the guns - you made a show of returning the guns and, not just that, you made a statement that the 2nd amendment should be abolished.
You knew EXACTLY what you were doing and are now whining at the pushback.
Feel safer with your baseball bat now?
