WOAH MAN!!!! Swapping Guns for groceries in US report in Aus 27/12/12........
So it has started.....
ABC report

<snip>

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa brought forward the date of a gun buyback event following the December 14 shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, that left 26 people dead.

The Boxing Day buyback saw 1,016 weapons, including 41 rifles, handed over.

Gun owners could take their arms to one of two locations in return for a $100 grocery store gift card for handguns, rifles and shotguns, or a $200 card for automatic weapons.

"Cities and states must join with the federal government to do everything we can, as quickly as we can, to keep our community safe and to get deadly weapons off our streets," Mr Villaraigosa said.

"It is absolutely critical to provide Angelinos with concrete actions they can take today to make our city safer tomorrow."

Los Angeles' police chief Charlie Beck said 8,000 weapons had been handed in since the program started in 2009.

Long lines of cars formed as Los Angeles gun owners turned in weapons.

Sergeant Rudy Lopez from the LAPD said the fact that police were asking no questions was a key incentive.

"See that? That's a silencer," he said, pointing to an assault weapon.

"That's illegal. We didn't say anything."

I honestly have no idea what to make of this shit. I saw the long fucking lines, it blew my mind. Wait in a car line for hours just for $100 if you give them your gun? It just shocked me. Most of these people weren't driving cheap broken down cars either. More than half of them were brand new. Desperate people with brand new cars? This shit is a straight out propaganda with paid shills to hand in worthless weapons for media attention.

I did, and they do, do this buy back yearly.. however; I find the statement "this was moved forward by 6 months this year, due to our current situation and history".... particularly offensive and doomish for the same reason... you? ( can you eat a food stamp, fiscal, gun control [et al]....?

people may not give up their guns when they a well fed and happy, but they will stampede to trade them when they are thisty or hungry. It can be a matter of imminent short term survival (kick the can down the road).

Half those weapons are probably broken,another 3rd are probably stolen to which they will be returned to the original owners

Morons trading their protection/rights for a meal

Guns and ammo, and from what I saw they appeared to be in good condition. Stolen guns are not returned to owners. 100% of the guns turned in are melted down

The lines were so long they had to turn people away. They ran out of the "gift" cards.

The local channels interviewed the mayor ( who is so stupid he struggles to complete a thought) as well as people waiting in their cars. OMG, waiting hours in a line to turn in a gun so they could drive away with a $100 gift card for the local grocery store.

From what I saw 75% were Mexican and the other 25% were black. All the while the mayor was babbling on about the success of this program and how it has reduced violent crimes in LA.

It is sickening and frightening how easy people accept the need for government to protect us from ourselves. Stupid fucking people

Idiots. They could get $1000 for those ARs I saw being put into trash cans. Sheeples. Drive yo car down to the Masonic Temple and turn in a $1000 gun for $100 ebt card. According to the report, there are no questions axed. So, if babymama turns in an AK that was used in several drive-bys, LAPD won't have a clue who it was that turned it in before they melt down the evidence?

Here on the Gold Coast I can go out after dark [unarmed] without fear.

Dear CP.. as u know......

______

I lived and worked in the states '88-'90 so I've seen it from the inside. Had fun with [hand] guns during lunch hour out in the sticks of Virginia. When I lived in LA you could hear the "pops" at new years eve and thought twice about being outdoors.
Back here in OZ a few years later we got our guns took away but mostly they were rifles 'cause hand guns never really were in vogue. In fact gun culture was almost non existent so it wasn't no big deal getting "disarmed"

But of course if you want a gun of any variety.. a whisper and a fist full of dollars will satiate that desire but most of us live on the coast and a gun is something you keep in your quiver of surfboards. Most Ozians admire our yankee cousins but at the same time consider the country half nuts.

And it makes my blood boil when I hear Merka is "the greatest country in the world" shouted from the hill tops and city blocks... Town squares. The freedom and liberty yo'll proclaim is yours and yours ALONE is naught but hot air and wind from a nation with it's nose pressed up against the glass of a 36 inch TV screen.

The great dream and the wild frontier are long gone like the buffalo and wagon.. YET you persist in the false doctrine that the gun will protect and any amount of persuasion otherwise draws hackles of outrage and condemnation especially to any god danged 'ferner' who would dare to question, what; in the civilised world, is considered as outdated as is the muscat and the flint.

I might add. Gun control came to us some 16 year ago. I note most Ozians are not behind bars nor are we less free than thee. ;)

I trust my comments will be considered civil.

Thank you.
