Hmm, good luck with that one Lansing!
This is a discussion on Lansing MI. Is trying the gun by back progam... within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Hmm, good luck with that one Lansing!...
Nice gun in the picture that accompanies the article.
Bet there's not a single one that nice turned in.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
All that said....
It could be worse.

The thugs who are using the firearms for criminal purposes aren't going to give them up for a hundred bucks worth of groceries. They'd probably be more willing to rob someone for grocery money than give up their weapon. Plus, aren't most of these people already on food stamps?

Maybe follow the route of the team that collected old junkers, dumped them on the buyback, and used the money to send a bunch of kids to shooting camp?
What I wanted to do one time (wife had me "previously scheduled") was paint a big sign that said SHOW IT TO ME FIRST and park as close to the buy back site as possible. Require bill of sale and take a photo of them and their ID along with the gun and take everything to the police to run serial numbers (preferably in a different city or an FFL). AND have a video recorder set up to tape police harassment, have a big obvious one and a covert one in case they **** with the obvious one.
It's hard to believe that city officials can be this stupid. And it's not just that this had never worked in the history of the country, but they just did this in Detroit and the NRA made a mockery of it! Hey Lansing ... ever heard of a little town called Detroit?
$5000 of the 7000 raised from 1 person. I wonder how much the mayor has put into the program? I'm sure people will be lining up to turn in a M&P for a $100. gift card.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
