Except that many of the privately funded ones are drained of money and shut down early when people with homemade slamfire and 3d printed guns show up.Participating in a gun "buyback" is handing the rope to those who'll eventually hang you with it.
Its usually a mix of Glocks, Ravens (remember them??!) and sawed off shotguns. Ive been told by more than a few guys that the real collectables never back to the police station property books.But, but, but aren't the evil homemade [scary voice] GHOST GUNS what is really driving all the crime? They must certainly be made a priority! On the other hand...getting that broken firearm of the street? Could be more pressing 🤔😕...decisions.
All joking aside what percentage of good working firearms do they normally acquire? And unfortunately actual collectibles?
FWIW, I believe the statistics lump into 1 category "unregistered " they don't care whether it is unmarked receiver, printed, or wait for it...removed serial #. I'll leave the other probable option out since it doesn't get much attention and this being public site. What does it mean unfinished? Ohio language unfinished lower= no shoot. Does NY language =no serial number?Its usually a mix of Glocks, Ravens (remember them??!) and sawed off shotguns. Ive been told by more than a few guys that the real collectables never back to the police station property books.
Its funny you mention ghost guns, they really ARE a problem here in NY. A few dipsheets were buying a ton of P80 lowers, building them and then sending them off to the streets. It seems we cant go a week here without seeing a news article about somebody getting busted for an unregistered, homemade gun built on a P80 or similar unfinished lower. Fuggin hoodboogers ruined it for us homebuilders here in NY.
You just keep believing that. It doesn't matter who's funding it, they have a virtually endless supply of money to propagandize the public with.Except that many of the privately funded ones are drained of money and shut down early when people with homemade slamfire and 3d printed guns show up.
It's ruining their plan. Malicious compliance
I read the article.
That's because you do not have the courage of your convictions (if you have any convictions at all).I don't see the harm in handing in a turd, taking their money, and buying yourself some ammo. These events are going to happen if we exploit them or not.
Your efforts to resist the propaganda battle or far more effective in other ways than avoiding the buy back event. Volunteer to support a youth/women's shooting program.
Personally, I wouldn't turn anything in, but I don't take issue with those who do. I'm more interested in hanging around outside and trying to save the few good items that are headed in.
Your fanatic side is starting to show, lighten up Francis.I read the article.
What he turned in doesn't matter.....
The generally dumb anti-gun public isn't going to scrutinize the contents of the picture. All they see is a bunch of specimens in a box that look like guns, and are being reported as being guns.
If they were cardboard cutouts with magic marker details on them, the propaganda value is all the same.
Do you not understand that this is a propaganda war to turn public sentiment against guns?
