Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton has announced that he will be arranging a gun turn in for every Saturday during the month of May. Locations have yet to be announced, or what will be used as incentives for the turn ins.
Called by the propaganda term “buy back” the programs insinuate that all firearms belong to the government, when in fact the guns were never owned by the government.
This is a prime opportunity for Constitutionalists to have fun and the possibility of picking up some decent guns for very good prices. It appears that Mayor Stanton has $100,000 to play with, donated by Arizonans for Gun Safety, a citizens disarmament group. No one is saying where the money came from, except that it was an anonymous donor.
It is easy to understand why a donor would not want their name associated with such foolishness.
If the Mayor is smart, he will follow the example of Falmouth Maine, where the guns gathered were sold, and the proceeds were given to the special Olympics.
The practice of appearing at these events has caught fire this year, with numerous activists showing up and obtaining nice firearms for good prices:
Outside, a group of gun advocates set up a table offering a better price to people carrying high-quality weapons.
Also in front of the church were people offering to buy the guns off of people before they reached the buyback event.
Outside the police station, a group of four or five men gathered to offer cash to people who were bringing guns in.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/W41mWY ) reports that a federally licensed gun dealer showed up to provide some competition. He bought a dozen weapons for $40 to $100 by standing outside the church with a sign that read “Cash 4 Guns.”
Just outside where the buyback program was being held pro gun activists were offering cash for guns.
