    I am betting they are going to end up in a Police Officers personal collection.

    And a 92 Beretta slide.....but never fear, that could be a stock photo from a single buyback 10 years ago.

    I really dont like how they state "the gun problem". It is not a gun problem, it is a people problem. Can I hate the media any more than I already do? :/

    I read that article this morning, and have to admit, I'm kind of confused as to why CNN published it.

    Since the Sandy Hook shooting I've been keeping a daily tab on the CNN and Huff-Po websites, just to keep a current idea of what the Anti's are throwing around. In all that time, what I've seen is a very directed PR campaign against so called "Assault Weapons" and "hi-cap clips" .... until this. This article takes a veering turn away from the AWB rant, while at the same time somewhat discrediting the whole AWB and mag-limit drive as ineffective. Instead the article focusses on handguns, which, even they point out are out of the gun-grabbers reach at this time....

    I'm not sure how to interpret this change... what are they posturing themselves for now... I may sound tin-foil hatty to some, but up until this point, articles on the gun control debate from these two sources have followed a very uniform campaign to push for an AWB and mag limits until today... Color me confused.

    While I disagree with the author's premise that gun violence is the problem (violence is the problem, the gun is just a tool), I respect his willingness to look at the facts and realize that "assault weapons" are not the problem.

    that photo looks kinda odd to me, no rust, every one of those guns look like they just came off the rack at a gunstore. :scrutiny:

    Oh, and the gun collectors showing up and outbidding the police in Seattle has been accurately reported, although I expect the anti-gun MSM will try to spin otherwise. If a widow does not wany her husbands' old duck gun, why shouldn't she get a good price from a duck hunter, rather than a $50 or $100 gift card?

    I know it did happen, but that may be just a stock photo of guns.

    I wonder if the same guy came back the next day to turn in the frame. :D If they don't split the amount, then one could make quite a nifty profit doing that with a Jennings or Bryco, eh? ;)

    It's a form of logical fallacy called "begging the question," a common tool of deception. Calling rifles with certain cosmetic features "assault rifles" is another form of this, putting us at a disadvantage as long as most people automatically accept that these rifles are evil simply because assault is an evil act. "Buy back" is yet another use of logical fallacy--a more subtle one that implies that the government is in some fundamental way the original source of our guns, which of course is only literally true for the guns that the ATF illegally gave to the Mexican drug cartels, for example.

    Oh yes, I feel safer already! A wise use of our tax dollars for sure. :rolleyes:

    Sarcasm aside, I say we should reclaim as many of those tax dollars (our money) as we can by buying and turning in as many cheap BB guns and Saturday night specials (slide and frame separately) as we can. :D Actually, just stick with BB/pellet guns because somebody of limited means might actually need the cheap firearms.

    I think this could be a pic from many years ago; hard to say. Why do they show a picture like this; they want to show the "masses" what "reasonable" and "responsible" gun owners are willing to do; turn in their guns to "help protect the innocent from harms way."
