Cheap Gun Opportunity in Crawfordsville, Indiana, 28 April, 2018

A gun turn in event in Crawfordsville, Indiana, delivers an opportunity for brave Second Amendment activists to obtain some nice guns for little money. Their actions would also create a media event to protect Second Amendment Rights.

The event will be held at the Crawfordsville Police Department from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Crawfordsville is about 40 miles northwest of Indianapolis.  From journalreview.com:

Residents can turn in semi-automatic rifles, bump stocks or large-capacity clips in an upcoming program sponsored by a local church.

Wabash Avenue Presbyterian invites owners to take the weapons and accessories to the Crawfordsville Police Department from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 28. All items turned in will be melted down at Nucor Steel.

Owners will receive a $100 gift card from Kroger or County Market for guns and a $25 gift card for accessories.

No permit is required to purchase guns in Indiana.

Gift cards of $100 will be given for each “assault-style” gun turned in. $25 will be given for accessories such as bump stocks and “high capacity magazines”. This is a generous offer for magazines. I suspect the gift cards to run out very quickly. If you have some old magazines, you might want to turn them in and order excellent new standard capacity magazines for going rates of $9-$15 each.  I do not expect many “assault-style” firearms to be turned in, but alert Second Amendment supporters might intercept an SKS or a someone turning in an AR15 type rifle they inherited from their brother or husband.

It is always valuable to have private purchasers at these events. It destroys the propaganda value for those who want us disarmed.

Is Indiana an open carry state?

I don’t want to be carrying a bunch of cash around unarmed.

Some cops will “intercept” some good ones and so will some Nucor Steel employees.

I actually got some good money at one of these events turning in trash rifles. My Grandfather passed away and cleaning the barn found 5 old shotguns in horrendous shape. Maybe you could have pulled a couple parts off them, but they were just rusted, pitted, warped wood, sad sad shape.

Took them in to a county Sherriff office 5 counties away and got $250 on a debit card. No way those guns were anything close to that. Gave $125 to the wife, and spent mine on fishing gear and some truck parts. Made my day.

“Large capacity clips”? Okay. The author of that sign needs to RESIGN from the department, immediately.

OK, I’m going to bite. Currently I don’t own a firearm but will be getting one later this year when I move to my new house. But let me ask anyway...

How can anyone purchase a firearm that someone is bringing in to have “melted” legally, or at least with any pragmatic assurance that they are doing it legally? I do find it absolutely hilarious that we could be giving 2nd Amendment patriots a huge discount by “outbidding” the gift cards the cops are giving out, but I’m curious as to the actual process of how this gun purchase would work, or has worked in the past?

In short, if this is the norm for such events, why do they pursue this idiotic process of buying guns for converting to plowshares?

The largest capacity clip I ever saw was a three round clip in 9 mm parabellum.

We used to have bandoliers of 7.62mm NATO rounds in 10 round clips to load our M-14 mags with.

Obviously the department is run by Liberals. That being the case, logic and/or common sense are not part of the equation.

Stripper clips.

I have some but I don’t have a bandolier.

But I was referring to magazine clips.

I had some with lunch today and put a clip on the bag. Not a very big one though.

As long as person to person transfers are legal in your state, the person turning in the firearm is free to sell it to a buyer who offers them a better deal. I would be a bit cautious about who I bought from, as the last thing you want to end up with is a stolen firearm or one that was used in a crime... I think most of these buybacks are "no questions asked", so a scumbag can literally sell stolen guns to police.

I have to wonder where the department gets the money for this program.

They are paying out money for equipment they do not need and intend to destroy.

If it is coming from taxpayer funds I would say that they are potentially committing an illegal act.

Many states have a law that prohibits state entities from destroying valuable property and require state entities to sell or auction off excess goods or property.

Also, if these gun purchases are made with taxpayer funds and were not in their budget they could be committing misappropriation of funds or fiscal malfeasance.

Of course, if you are a Liberal, laws don’t matter as long as your intentions are good.

Please have a ‘buyback’ in the Lansing, Michigan area so I can dump my Ithaca 66 single shot 12 gauge with the split aluminum receiver.

I’ve got a pile of MilSurp AR mags I should sell them. I prefer the MagPul brand.
