These gun buybacks are also very popular with criminals. They buy a Sat night special for $50, commit murder or armed robbery, then go right to the police who not only dispose of it with no questions asked, the crook gets the $50 he paid for the gun back. Also, many og the guns the cops buy back aren't even in working condition. The whole thing is a joke, except to the libs who promote these campaigns so they can feel good about themselves for "dooing something".

It's actually even more insidious than that. In fact, criminals can steal your legal weapons, commit crimes, then turn them in for "cash back". The guns are never returned to the rightful owners, even though they were registered to them at the time of purchase. Many fine weapons, some with historical significance, some that are handed down from generation to generation, are simply destroyed. The agencies sponsoring the "buy back" don't bother. This is not a "buy back", it is lawless thievery nd it's a win/win for criminals and their leftist/liberal/progressive/statist allies.

Surely police know about this, yet they seem to approve the routine.
Seems, using tax payer money, to be almost a vote buying scam.

It is, perhaps, the ultimate “do as I say, not as I do” scenario: progressive entertainment stars and politicians telling us that we shouldn’t possess firearms.

So now would be a good time for American progressives to rise up and do for their icons, as their icons seek to do for us: it’s time for an entire movement of celebrity gun buy-back events.

Gun buy-back events, if you’re not familiar, have been proliferating nationwide over the past decade or so. They usually involve a local law enforcement agency setting-up a designated time and location where individuals can hand-over...
