    Well we have to look at this from another angle. Let's just say that a ban on firearms, black rifles, semi auto's in general was enacted and possession was now unlawful. Everyone is given 30 days to turn them in.

    Out of the 300 million guns, or whatever the number is, many would in fact be turned in. Why you ask? Because law abiding gun owners are just that, law abiding. They have no desire to be labeled a criminal or break the law no matter how strange the law is. They would follow the law and surrender their firearms. They would not face prosecution nor confront LE in order to keep them. Not all mind you but many would.

    I will not give up, I will not surrender. A war was fought over 200 years ago in order to release this great nation from the bonds of tyrants, and I fear another one coming. We are being controlled by tyrants, using opinion and emotion as stated fact, with their only mission to gain further control. We are already living under greater tyranny than that which the Founding Fathers rose up against, yet we are "freer" than ever according to those who wish to control us.

I say RECYCLE guns, send them east where at least 50% of the people still have a clue. Let California rot in it's own stupidity. I'd love to buy back a nice pistol or rifle from these idiots for pennies. I promise not to melt it down except by practicing too much.

    I left LosT Angeles in 2007. I never looked back. I stayed there for 2 years and had some fun but I'd never live there again. Nothing special there and majority of people living there I didn't get along with because of my personal views on firearms and politically.

    Gun buy back yesterday for gift cards garnered loads of guns.....some interviewed said because of current events they wanted to give up their guns.
    How easy is it to convince the general public they are wrong and make them feel guilty for everything that happens..........Geeeeezzzz.
    That's almost laughable. Due to current events, anybody with half a brain would rather OBTAIN more firearms, to protect themselves.

    I've got to admit, I'm a recent gun owner, and although I lost all my guns in a boating accident, the police might not believe that. If I still had my guns, all of my purchases are probably still on record. I have a family and no desire for a shootout with the police. I would not voluntarily turn any in, but if they came for mine, I'd make it the biggest pain possible, "do you have a warrant," etc, but I have no illusions about going down shooting. I'd like to say I'd stand up for my rights, but I can't do that at all if I'm dead, and in this case I think I can do more good in the world alive. That's why I think advocacy NOW is very important.

    Wolves line up at the table? I'll bet they know why they have two forks and two spoons too. And why one knife is sharp and the other not.

    We have FFL's and collectors who wait for buybacks in order to dispose of unsaleable back-room junk (estate sales with one or two valuable firearms along with several pieces of junk are pretty common) that they would otherwise simply destroy and dispose of.
