    Long Guns Recently Turned In at Phoenix event in May, 2013

    North Philadelphia will be hosting a gun turn in event on 29 June, 2013. While these events are commonly labeled with the propaganda term "buyback" the guns were never owned by the people attempting to buy them.

    The event will be held at Deliverance Evangelistic Church at the corner of Lehigh and 21st, from 10 am to 2:00 p.m.

    Gift cards of $100 will be given for each gun turned in, no questions asked.

    Across the country, communities, police departments and churches are sponsoring gun turn-ins to get "guns off the street". At many of these events, private buyers are showing up, offering cash for the more valuable guns. These private additions to the public turn-in are effective, no doubt, in getting more guns off the street, because they add to the resources that are available to those who want to get rid of guns for something of value, be it a grocery card or a number of twenty dollar bills.

    You can help make the turn-in in your area more effective by standing on the curb with your "Cash for Guns" sign, or at a folding table, willing to offer more than the gift card for firearms that are more valuable. It would be best if numerous private parties were available, as more good guns could then be transferred into responsible hands.

    This action serves many useful purposes. It stretches the turn-in budget so that more guns can be taken off the street. It helps keep fearful widows from being defrauded of most of the market value of the gun they are turning in. It prevents valuable assets from being destroyed by bureaucratic inflexibility. It is a win-win-win situation.

    It also dispels the pernicious message that guns are bad and should be destroyed.

    I understand that handguns must be transferred through an FFL

    Long gun private sales are legal, but handgun sales must be through an FFL, I have been told.

    In Philly? Bring a lawyer and a change of undies, they don't recognize PA law there.
    Best of luck.

    If your gonna attempt that, tape a go-pro or some kind of camera with audio to your chest, or an audio recorder.

    Philly cops are not known to be observant of the law. They are known for being heavy-handed. I say this as a resident of Philly suburbs.

    Don't waste this opportunity PA residents. Whether you're going to buy guns yourselves or even protest that 'these guns were never yours, how can it be a buyback?'. Whatever you decide to do this is an opportunity to benefit gun owners.

    And of course don't forget, depending on where the $100 gift card is to, might be worth it to turn in those burned, rusted, broken POS guns and get something out of them. :)

    Be careful, as others have stated some of the cops can be heavy handed. Also North Philly not the best place to be, especially waiving cash around.

    That's one easy way to PO those Philly cops, they will probably beat your skull in for ruining their power grab to rob desperate people of their firearms.

    I'd give a 100 dollar giftcard for almost any gun, 100 dollars is a good deal, just imagine what unwanted treasures are collecting dust in people's attics.
