    Private buyers competed with Amazon Gift cards for firearms in Seattle yesterday the picture is from the Seattle Times

    Picture at site

    From the Times:

    I am sure that the firearms sellers were happy to get cash instead of a gift card. The term "buy back" is pure Marxist propaganda, as the firearms were never owned by the government in the first place.

    These turn ins are purely political theater, designed to delegitimize armed citizens. Their real effects are to defraud ignorant citizens of valuable property, waste police resources, destroy valuable assets, and increase the demand for new guns by decreasing the supply of old ones.

    My neighbor and a smith friend were there. Pictures ended up in the local media. All the chat of SGN and Waguns. Some of it is pretty funny.

    10 great guns for $500? We need to make a corporation that does this and then sell stock!....with dividends in the form of gun redistributions.

    Looking at the photos, good bang/buck, but there is nothing there that I'd actually want. If it don't make an anti crap their pants I'll pass these days :)

    Before FTF sales were banned in California, San Francisco PD had a gun buyback at 850 Bryant Street, the Hall of Justice (Whore of Justice as some of us called it). Anyway, some cops went outside and intercepted the would-be sellers and bought it themselves. Eventually the brass learned of it and told them to knock it off.

    What a good reason to keep some cash in the safe. That looks like a better day than a day at the gunshow...wish we had one of those around here.

    i tried this very same thing when the city of North las Vegas held a buy back a few years ago.
    I was told to leave by nlvpd or they would trespass me from the property.

    Upcoming gun buy back in Atlanta (college park down by the airport).

    http://neighbornewspapers.com/view/...proves-gun-buy-back-for-Feb--9?instance=south

    I can't find the link, but somewhere I read they prohibited people from buying guns from people turning them in. No saving guns allowed.

    Then this guy has my favorite quote. Because everyone knows the criminals will be turning in their guns, :eek:
    "We're an urban city. We've got gun issues; we've got some crime issues. With this buyback, hopefully we will have a few less crime issues," said Carn.

    Who are these people that have guns laying around their home waiting for someone to offer them a $50 gift card to get rid of them?

    I remember when the gunshow in Santa Rosa at the El Rancho Tropicana was for the Sheriff's dept.'s guns, everything turned in by old widows, anything unclaimed, as long as it didn't come up ''stolen'', they sold them off to buy new equipment. Good times.
