    Regarding your second thought, go ahead and watch CA go down the crapper. Soon it will be your state. Sooner than you think.

    I find it amazing how quick some are to write off their neighbors as if Liberalism will never come to them. Good luck with that.
    This is so historically accurate it's scary.

    This is exactly what happened, twice, all over Europe. At some point, enough of their neighbors were rounded up, corralled or otherwise exterminated from pending action that there was no one left to defend each other.

    Unless we're willing to start seperating into disjointed unions rather than the United States -- something I'm not ready to see happen -- we need to start standing up for each other.

    SDG, don't think for one minute that any of this is directed at the good people of CA who are at the mercy of the Liberals as anyone else in any other state. I'm from northern NY originally, so I know how you feel. Unfortunately, the Liberals are in such large numbers in those states that they have the vote. Very frustrating.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    The local news here in Denver just mentioned buy back programs in Colorado and how they don't do much and are not very popular here. The last one in Denver a while back apparently netted about 2 dozen guns. They also mentioned that gun sales have been through the roof for "military style" weapons. I guess we have a gun buy up program. The people are buying up all the stock at gun shops.

    I don't think the sheeple get it... These buy backs for those of us in WA are a sham... They are bought from these sheeple and also gotten from bad guys being arrested and if the gun is in good condition, SN are intact, checked for crime records, they are then turned over to one of two state licensed resellers who go through them, clean them, replace worn parts and sell them at local gun fairs legally. The police then have a nice amount of cash to do stuff with... (good thing) but I think if the word got out... the buy backs would probably whither away to a large extent... at least here in WA...

    I wonder how long it will be until some smart person capitalizes on the government buy back phenomenon and turns it into a cable reality series.

    Next on "Buy Back <insert your town here>"...........

    It's LA ....

    I have been waiting for anyone around me to have a buyback program. I have an old Jennings J-22 I would love to unload for a couple hundred bucks but will not sell to anyone. Now that I think about it I also have a Grendel .380 I would part with, why oh why did I ever buy them to start with?

    At least the criminal element in society, knows where to do their dirty deeds and have no resistance.

    Anyone who would willingly and voluntarily hand their guns over for a food card probably doesn't need guns in the first place.

    Well, it's pretty simple actually. They spend money they don't have. They'll look to the Federal Government and those poor folks that actually work for a living to pick up the tab later.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Read the story in the paper online. The cards were donated by Ralphs. Probably some major food chain out there.
    There was one guy mentioned that turned in a Mac-12 complete with silencer. The most they were offering was $200. I'd have gladly given the guy $300 for it.

    At least 51% of this county is clueless. None of this should come as a suprise.

    My treat.
    From local news
    Many of the weapons turned in were family heirlooms.

    But Doug Johnson, an undercover gang and narcotics officer at the event, said they also included two fully automatic TEC-9s, a common gun for gang members, along with an AK-47 and a Bushmaster rifle, the same brand used in the Newtown, Conn., school massacre on Dec. 14....
    A Burbank woman, who would not give her name, said as she drove out of the Van Nuys event that she turned in a gun that had belonged to her parents.

    Both the gift card and the opportunity to get rid of the gun drew her in.

    "Not something I wanted to hold on to," she said.
    This is more like it:
    A few protesters stood on the streets holding signs urging people not to turn in guns.

    One, Bruce Boyer, yelled at waiting drivers that they were supporting "the regime" by turning in guns.

    Boyer, who calls himself the "chief instigator" of the local pro-gun group Sons of Liberty L.A., said the event is "a fraud" meant to convince the public that police are making the streets safer.

    Instead of urging law-abiding citizens to turn guns in, Boyer said, police should encourage them to get more guns to protect themselves. ...

    Referring to the other people in line, many of whom appeared elderly or middle-aged as they drove out, he added, "I would say that the people turning them in are the ones that should be keeping them. And I don't see many gangbangers in the line."

    Johnson, the undercover officer, said some of the weapons were, in fact, gangbanger guns, and he was glad to get them off the streets.
