    L.A. Voluntarily Disarming....

    So L.A. is voluntarily disarming.......stood in line for 2 hrs. to hand in their guns.....
    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.

    I'm sure the lines were filled with gang bangers turning in their guns for Starbucks gift cards.

    There! Don't you feel safer?

    Lets hope that gun buy backs which are only taking advantage of the uneducated will appease people and take their minds off of more stringent control methods.

    All this gun free crap sounds like a Hitler Utopia to me.

    Here in Ca there have been enough of these that they had to be giving something worth while to get people to stand in line! They generally wont allow people out of their cars, An officer comes to your trunk and picks them up. I have heard talk of cobbling together some junk when prices offered got up to $200. But this sounds more like the reporter used a little creative license here! DR

    Perhaps they simply wish to reclaim the "most violent city" title from Chicago...

    Not that it will ever hit Michigan, but if it does, think I'll go to the buyback with some cash in hand. Walk around and take a look at what people are turning over and offer them $20 or $30 more in cash than what the city/state is offering. I'm sure most of it will be junk, but you have idiots every day holding onto an original issue 1911 who think it's just some old crap that they would love to get $100 gift card for.
    My treat.

    Trading Hipoints for gift cards okay. But why can't we build a website that buys back guns from sheep and allows other citizens with a brain to buy them? In a liberals mind melting down guns is productive. It's a huge waste of resources and polutes the planet even more manufacturing new ones. 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.

    A feel good thing that will accomplish absolutely nothing.

    Like gun laws, gun "buy backs" simply will not work nor stem the tide of illegally owned guns. You may as well tell EMS people to stick a band aid upon a gushing artery for all it's worth.

    This is only intended to show the people that authorities are doing something. See? We are getting those evil guns off the streets and out of the hands of people who might actually use them to kill! Don't you feel so much safer now?

    Fools.

    I don't see why a firearms dealer can't do that.

    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.

    I'm instituting my own "gun buy back"; anyone who feels like their fully functioning, evil semi-automatic .308 needs to be removed from their home and taken to a safe location, please PM me. I'll send you $200 and I'll even pay for shipping to my FFL. Thank you for your interest in getting guns off your street and onto mine.
