A gun turn in event in Miramar, Florida delivers an opportunity for Second Amendment activists to obtain some nice guns for little money. Their actions would also create a media event to protect Second Amendment Rights.
The event will be held at ChristWay Baptist Church, 3800 S. Douglas Road on April 20th, a Saturday. These events are political theater, designed to delegitimize gun ownership and armed citizens.
Across the country, freedom fighters are showing up at these events, and offering cash for the better specimens. This should be welcomed by event organizers, if their purpose is to "get guns off the streets". This is because such activity stretches the turn in dollars, prevents poor widows from being defrauded of their valuable property for a pittance, and places guns that are not wanted in responsible hands.
Private sales are perfectly legal in Florida, as they are in most states.
There appears to be only $5,000 dollars available for this event, so there could be excellent opportunity to obtain items after the money runs out. They are offering up to $200 dollars per item, but I suspect much less for most.
It appears that this event is trying to prevent private sales by insisting that the firearms be kept in car trunks and that the owners stay in the car until an officer takes the firearms out of the trunk.
Local information would be appreciated, as these events are often held in poor neighborhoods.
No money is being offered for pellet guns. There are expensive pellet guns out there, it is possible one might show up.
Here are numerous links showing private individuals purchasing guns at numerous events across the country:
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.
