    Gun buyback program for resale?

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3219056.html


    Just days after Gov. Jan Brewer signed a law designed to hinder police participation in gun buyback events, the city of Phoenix on Saturday held the first of three buybacks that organizers are calling the largest effort of its kind in the state's history.

    The law Brewer signed April 29 takes effect this summer and requires cities and counties to sell surrendered weapons instead of destroying them.

    That basically bars police and supporters of the events from accomplishing their key goal, cutting the number of guns on the streets, and police likely would not participate.
    I'm not going to argue right or wrong, but it is hilarious that you'll do a buy back program and then resell the guns. The purpose was to buy back guns and they were destroyed. I hope they buy for cheap and then make a huge profit.

    WTF? just WTF?
    Question how are they going to handle the illegal guns and destructive devices they get via the buy back program?

      So much for taking the guns off the street.

      That would make entirely too much sense. If they ran government more like a business, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in now. My only hope here is that they at least return the stolen guns to their rightful owners.

      I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

        LOL.

        What I keep coming back to is the stated goal vrs the reality of gun buybacks. They buy all kinds of gun-shaped garbage, then bring the newsies out to take a picture of the two actual guns they reaped, while claiming to have taken hundreds of guns off the streets. With this law, somebody is going to have to pay to store all the broken, archaic crap and rusted-out BB guns they claim are firearms, but nobody is going to buy. Maybe they can get around the rule by cutting them up and selling the resulting scrap?

          Gun buyback programs are a gunsmith's dream come true. They can sell their scrap boxes for ten times what it's worth.
