    Notice: Gary Indiana - Gun Buy Back planned - get you cash ready

    Gary police to conduct another gun buyback
    By Michelle L. Quinn Post-Tribune correspondent October 13, 2012 5:32PM


    ....Residents will receive Wal-Mart gift cards in the amounts of $50 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and $100 for assault weapons.....


    A change of venue for the Gary Police Department’s second gun buyback of the year is expected to get even more firearms off the streets.

    Nine churches around the city will accept guns of all stripes, Gary Police Chief Wade Ingram told the Finance Committee when he came before it Wednesday asking for a $20,000 appropriation to fund the buyback.

    Many think criminals are the ones who are turning in weapons when the department conducts a buyback, but that’s not always true, Ingram said. In fact, if the department were to wait for the criminals, they’d be waiting for an awfully long time.

    “These are the good, upstanding people who aren’t ashamed to turn them in,” he said. “Criminals are the ones breaking into their houses when they’re at church or out and stealing them.”

    My Comments: If you live in Gary, there is an opportunity to go to the meeting on Tuesday, when they will ask for the $20,000 in funds, to voice your opinion (though I don't think you would be very well listened to).

    I wonder if you stood just down the street with a sign that said will offer $100 for certain handguns and $200 for military style rifles like M1 carbines,M1 garand,AR15,Ak47 if the Cops would mess with you LOL

    No doubt it will be a roaring success, accompanied by a huge reduction in crime rates.

    I don't suppose they bothered to define "assault weapons?"

    I wonder if the Daisy Red Rider would qualify as an assault weapon. After all it has a 650 BB capacity, and fires as fast as you can work the cocking lever.

    You can't fix stupid and these guys admit what they're doing is stupid. They know they are enticing (poorly) good people to give up their weapons and have no hope of getting criminals to turn in their guns. Disarm the good public and leave them at the mercy of the criminals.

    Don't forget the compass in the stock, that and such a high capacity has got to bump it up to darn near a type 3. Especially after it almost put Ralphy's eye out.

    Personaly, I like dukalmighty's idea. I'll even promise to take them all as far away as Virginia so they can feel at ease about then not being used in a crime in their city.

    $50 wouldn't be bad for an old beat up Hi Point. More than you would get on a trade.

    It's like a band-aid fix for a beheading. BTW, are there any restrictions on what can be purchased with the Walmart gift cards? If I were a SMART criminal, I'd trade 9-10 ratty, stolen guns for a nice new one from Walmart that hadn't been...reported stolen.

    I'm assuming the cops destroy these guns after purchase. Sick. Disarming law-abiding citizens at $100-a-pop isn't going to stop a single crime. All it does is make Libtards and the ignorant feel better about themselves.

    Hopefully the duped dumbasses get a sticker that proudly proclaims "I Sold All My Guns Today!"

    Red Ryder new in box $33.97 (at Wally World)

    Rust-Oleum flat black rattle can $3.77 (at Wally World)

    If my math is close (ran out of fingers and toes) that's $37.74 plus tax.

    Hmmm.........

    Probably could even get a discount buying in bulk.


    I'll be back in a few days, got to run a few errands.

    Thanks archer51, I owe ya lunch.

    I'll give anyone here 100 bucks for a real "assault" weapon.

    I wonder if such buy-backs are actually cost-reduction purchasing programs in disguise. After all, budgets are tight.

    Can't imagine such a thing reducing crime at all. Can't imagine a criminal unloading any decent firearms for only $50-100 a pop.

    Net effect, it seems to me: fewer upstanding folk with firearms; just as many criminals with them; resulting in less of a threat out there for criminals when committing future crimes.

    I wonder what would happen if you showed up at a buy back and when the LEO officer offers 100 bucks for the weapon you step up a yell 125.

    I grew up in Gary, graduated from high school in 1960 and left that summer. Gary is a good place to be from--as far from as you can get!!!! I've been back a couple of times for HS reunions--which we don't even hold in Gary itself! Gary looks like a war zone with all the abandoned, burned out, falling down buildings! The politicians there take after their crooked cousins across the border in Chicago. When I grew up, it was a nice city. Now, it is right up there with Detroit! From what I here, they don't do anything constructive to fix the problems--just eyewash crap like the gun buyback program which doesn't do a thing to get guns out of the hands of criminals! But the liberal do-gooder types can say "look what we did--we got xx number of guns off the street! Now it will be safer!" Bull!
