    Funny how the 3rd from last paragraph in the linked article shows that even they know this does make any real difference in Crime....... - they just do it for political 'feel good' points to make it look like they care....

    Openly admits it's pointless (for "getting guns off the street"), yet still seeks to do it anyway. As if doing something is meaningful, irrespective of whether it meets the claimed/stated goals or has any effect whatsoever. Now, there's "modern governance" for you. Justifyin' the budget, one pointless action at a time.

    Actually I am from Worcester and no tax dollars are being used. Wegmans is donating the gift cards and the flu shots are something the Health Dept people do all over the city and this is just another event.
    The police, health officials and the local DA's office were on a local radio show last week to promote the program and I'm glad to say they all were adamant that the second amendment is something that they respect and uphold and that this program is not to take firearms out of the hands of those who own them and want to keep them. But you do have spouses and families of owners who have passed that no longer want the firearms and don't know how to go about giving them up. For those people giving them to the police is preferable than trying to figure out how or if they can sell them or give them away.
    My recollection of past collections is what is brought in are POS.

    You mean BESIDES going to the local PD and handing them over? Who-woulda-thunk.




    I get free shots at work, I don't know what a "Wegmans" is, and my gun is worth more than they're willing to give me. No thanks, move along with your stupid agenda.

    Seems like a good way for a criminal to do the crime and then off load the gun for some extra money. " We are not asking any names or questions"

    Thanks for clarifying that point. My assumption was incorrect, and it is good to know that taxpayer dollars are not being used.

    I still disagree with government acting in this capacity.

    Im not saying that a private citizen doesn't have the right to do something like this, but Im glad I live in middleboro. No offense.

    Another reason not to shop at Wegmans. My main gripe with them is if you want their discount card you have to let them scan your drivers license. NOT!
    As to the flue shot; you'd have to hold me down to give it to me. Never had one; never will.

    If our "local fathers" ever decided to do something like that, using real money, I could probably find some old junk that looks like it used to be a gun. Like those fellows who gathered up a bunch of old broken crap and cashed in big time.
