    “Dr. White stresses that this is not an attempt to confiscate guns, from gun owners, nor is it an effort to prevent gun ownership, but it is an attempt to draw attention to a crisis that is being faced by communities to prevent more violence as an ongoing experience,” an APD news release said.

    What does THAT mean? I think it could make some sense if we draw a parallel to love making:

    The actual "doing it" would be the "attempt to confiscate guns" from citizens. The "draw attention to a crisis" would be the foreplay or at least the pre-foreplay.

    These "progressives" can't nail it like they want to, so they "draw attention to a crisis" like one would talk dirty to try and get some action going.

    The lady talking about the guns never being found that were used in a murder, that just might show up in a buyback, as if that would help heal the hurt, is simply delusional. Really? Even in the million to one odds that somehow someone will get those particular guns and turn them in, that would do nothing to bring back the victim, and it would do nothing to reduce crime. The perps in that crime will simply find other guns to commit more crime when they find that someone has swiped their tools of the trade to take to a buyback.

    I'm shaking my head at the stupidity of some people.

    Rather ironic that one of the "related article" links points to a man who sold an "illegally possessed" shotgun to an undercover federal agent, and went to prison for it.

    http://www.ajc.com/news/local/atlanta-man-sold-sawed-off-shotgun-other-guns-undercover-agent/DgWScK9QRtUg5EYn54FZjO/

    Yet this gun buy is "no questions asked". How many "illegally possessed" weapons will be dumped? If it's a crime for the one guy to sell a shotgun to an undercover agent, how is it not a crime for the activist groups involved here to collect all these weapons, knowing that some of them are "illegally possessed" and may in fact be evidence in a crime?

    I went. You had to stay in your car. A ton of police presence. An office ask what type of firearms you had and where they were. The officer then retrieved the firearm from your vehicle and inspected them. Once the inspection was complete, he/she then gave you a paper voucher with a amount for each firearm you turned over. You then drove down to the lower part of the parking lot and handed the paper vouchers to another officer and they then gave you cash for the amount of vouchers you turned in.

    I turned in 3 long guns. I had a Iver Johnson single shot 12 gauge that was rusted and pitted really bad. When the action was closed, there was a noticable gap between the breech face and the chamber. It would have been too dangerous to fire. The officer inspecting the firearms picked up on this right away and said that they would only give me $25 for the gun. The other 2 long guns where a Western Auto Revelation .22 short throw lever action. The stock was pretty beat up, but the chamber, bore, and action were all still good. Got $100 for that. The other long gun was a Savage Springfield 187m .22 semi automatic. Again the outside of the gun show some abuse, but the action, chamber, and bore were all good and got $100 for that gun as well.

    Obviously not. So no buying opportunity. There never is at these things. If the cops catch you trying you'll at best get the bum's rush. At worst, who knows.
