    Quite possibly the funniest thing I've ever read. :D :D

    This is written by the National Rifle Association, as printed in the May 2008 issue of "America's First Freedom". I'm sure they don't mind us sharing it here:
    It's just more happiness and warm fuzzies than I deserve today. Oh, bless those gun dealers for doing that - they can take a much-needed vacation now with that profit on their full inventory of Lorcins. :)

    "Teach the police a lesson about moronic gun-buybacks by bankrupting them by making them pay far more than market value for cheap guns? BRILLIANT!!!! :D :D :D

    Now, when a few people take advantage of these things to make a great profit on a beat-up old gun....good for THEM, but bad in that it makes the "brains" (and I use the term loosely) behind these things actually think they're "making a difference..."

    But a concentrated effort to totally bust the budget of one? With respect to McDonalds, "I'M LOVIN' IT!"

    ....though, part of me has to wonder...will the cops spin this? Ie, "WOW, look at ALL these EVIL DANGEROUS TOOLS OF MURDER we took of the street, go US!"

    I'd be happier if there was a guarantee that the money didn't come from taxpayer's pockets. I know that these events are usually at least partially funded by an anti group, but I've yet to see/hear of one that is 100% privately funded.

    That said, the dealers were pretty clever. :)

    These gun buyback schemes make me wonder why don't these anti gun movie stars and buisness owners start their own buyback with their own money?

    They have millions of dollars each and collectively hundreds of millions if not a billion dollars to end the scurge of assault weapons. Heck with that kind of money they could buy up gun manufacturers and shut the doors.

    But they would rather force their socialist agenda with taxpayer money. Maybe they haven't heard or just don't belive "We pledge our lives, our forturnes, and our sacred honor."

    Yeah, that was the brain child of Don "Under perpetual FBI investigation" Perata. Apparently he's still trying to dig up money to cover what they paid out. I guess his anti buddies aren't eager to chip in. I thought paying $250 for each gang banger liver brought in would have been more effective.:evil:

    Livers are kind of messy, how about doing the Arab thing and start off with the right hand.

    no wonder Hi points are flying of the shelves, the only bad point is if you live in this area, no more low investment fun guns, like the crvena zastava m70 i recently picked up for $140.00.

    And spent the gift cards in his favorite gun shop (just a rumor) :evil:

    This would be cooler if it was followed by an article labeled "Person sells Twenty Ravens to Local PD to Fund Full-Auto Purchase."

    Why don't they have these in my neck of the woods?!?!

    That's even easier than clinical research.

    Seriously! I wish they had a $250 each buyback in san antonio. I have a pistol and a mosin that I would sell (plus about 10 more mosins I would go buy to turn in for 150% profit) and go buy a few more mosins and a few other things.

    Same thing has happened in other cities as well, people just keep bringing in their cheap or broken guns and turn around and buy good ones.

    Wow, for $250 each, Hi-Point could just drop-ship C9's by the semi load direct from the factory and really clean up!

    Hehe, I wonder if anyone's made a website listing when, where, and how much they're paying for what...






    Maybe I should do it :D. I've also been looking for an easy way to finance a road trip :evil:

    Look at it this way:

    Your tax dollars (and the anti's as well) are being donated to support people selling old guns in order to possibly purchase new ones.


    I have no problem donating my tax money to be used to support the firearms industry. It's much better than having it used for welfare, or some other socialist government scheme.

    From what I understand, much of the payout money comes from confiscated funds. That said, I wish they would offer more than $50 down here. I got an M44 that I could stand to part with for a couple hundred bucks profit...
