    Trade a gun for a rose in SC on Valentine's Day

    COLUMBIA, S.C. Police in South Carolina gave away roses on Valentine's Day. All you had to do to get one for your sweetie was turn in a gun.

    Hoping to get the weapons off the streets with the "Guns for Roses" program, authorities in two central South Carolina cities set up a program where anyone who turned in a gun received a free rose and a Best Buy gift card.

    At a Columbia church, five cars lined up to give away guns before the exchange had even started. At the end of the day, Columbia area police had collected 191 weapons and police in Sumter collected 32.

    "We've got a great turnout so far," Richland County sheriff's spokesman Lt. Chris Cowan said.

    A handgun was worth a $100 gift card, while a rifle or shotgun netted a $50 gift certificate. Cowan said one man turned in six handguns, worth $600 in gift cards.

    There was no amnesty for those turning in the guns. The weapons were being checked.......

    For decent gun's, I'd have given em' a rose and cash!

    I can't believe that so many were "collected" especially since there was no amnesty being given though you know there had to be at least one (if not more) stupid criminal who gave them their real info and was under the impression that they were being given a "get outta jail free card".....LOL
    When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have guns

    Just remember, When seconds count help is mere minutes away

    Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

    I'll do a dozen roses and dinner for every "clean" gun. I mean honestly, who in their right mind would go for this.
    When in doubt empty the magazine.
