Gun BuyBack Turns Into Gun Show



quote:

Police officers in Seattle, Washington held their first gun buyback program in 20 years this weekend, underneath interstate 5, and soon found that private gun collectors were working the large crowd as little makeshift gun shows began dotting the parking lot and sidewalks. Some even had “cash for guns” signs prominently displayed.

Police stood in awe as gun enthusiasts and collectors waved wads of cash for the guns being held by those standing in line for the buyback program.

People that had arrived to trade in their weapons for $100 or $200 BuyBack gift cards($100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and $200 for assault weapons) soon realized that gun collectors were there and paying top dollar for collectible firearms. So, as the line for the chump cards got longer and longer people began to jump ship and head over to the dealers.

John Diaz, Seattles Police Chief, wasn’t pleased with the turn of events stating “I’d prefer they wouldn’t sell them,” but admitted it’s perfectly legal for private individuals to buy and sell guns, FOR NOW. Mayor Mike McGinn said at a news conference the private transactions are a loophole that needs to be closed. “There’s no background checks, and some (guns) could be exchanged on the streets that shouldn’t be in circulation.”

And I assume this will get as much MSM coverage as the other "successful" gun buy-backs. Right?

A few of us brought this up a few weeks back.. They are only offering $200 for an AR15... I'll gladly give 3-4 times that.

I knew someone would jump on it

Why sell your gun for $200 or $100 when you could easily use that gun to rob more than that from citizens?

Selling a gun is getting one fish to eat. Using the gun to rob is fishing.

Works just as well as the buyback. Guns go from people who don't want them to people who will value and own them responsibly. Works out for everyone.

Exactly, I wonder if Obama would subsidize it just like Cash for Clunkers

Probably not. I wonder why these people didn't just sell the guns to private buyers like normal? I guess the buybacks serve some purpose if they can attract people who aren't otherwise selling unwanted guns, and if people want to show up and buy them fine.

I love watching liberals as they discover the magic of supply, demand, and the free market. Too bad the response is always to restrict the free market.
