    L.A. Voluntarily Disarming....

    I'm wondering if LA PD got back any of their MP5s they lost from their training facility? Those were their guns they converted to sim-ammo! If I remember it was 20 or so!

    There! Don't you feel safer?
    Actually those were the guns they stole from the hood and couldn't get ammo!

    This is a good thing. It will make it easier for us to reclaim the land as West Carolina.

    Read the L.A. Riot accounts of disarmed idiots running scared to buy guns, only to discover that there were waiting periods and other "laws" in place that meant that they could NOT buy a gun that day, or in the following days.

    Many then ran desperately to their friends to "borrow" guns, because the wolf was at the door.

    How many of those sheeple will only realize their stupidity when the wolf is again at the door, but they cannot get a gun at all, because they not only turned their guns in for short term cash, but elected liars who promised safety and security when they KNEW that they could deliver neither.

    Cannon fodder.

    Thats all I've got to say about that.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    If there is a gun buy back here in tuscaloosa I will take my camera down there and conduct some interviews with the sellers asking them what gang the belong to and how much time they did before and then post it here.

    I still like the gun club (don't remember where) who spent a year gathering up old broken rifles worth about 20.00 or less each. They took them to the "buy back program" and sold them for 100-200 each. They then used the money to send kids to an NRA sponsored summer camp. Loved that one!!!!

    Re: L.A. Voluntarily Disarming....

    Having lived in the greater LA area for 30 years (and got smart and got out), I would bet more guns are coming over the Mexican boarder every day than our being turned in. Most of the ones turned in in the past looked like they were very old and very worn out. The others were stolen (remember, no questions). So they are legally fencing stolen property.

    Anyone who would turn in their gun should not have a gun. I might add that turning in any kind of decent gun for a $100 gift certificate, borders on insane and is well into the land of stupid. With the current prices for guns you could at least triple or more the profit from the gun. Maybe this is a good thing, removing guns from the hands of the insane.
