Los Angeles: Thousands Line Up For Gun Buyback- Two Rocket Launchers Turned In
Mall parking lots were packed with after-Christmas shoppers. But nowhere were the lines longer than at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Van Nuys Masonic Temple, where thousands of people came to exchange their guns for Ralphs gift cards.

Cars queued up for blocks at the drive-through events, with the city giving cards worth up to $100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and up to $200 for assault weapons. There was a bit of haggling involved, but the guns were all taken.

"What do you got?" an officer in Van Nuys asked a man in his late twenties as he pulled up in a green Mazda.

"Just one handgun, I've had it since high school," the man replied.

"Will you take $50 for this?"

"Sure."

Many came bearing more than one gun. They pulled 22 pistols from the trunk of one white Honda, a haul that earned the driver $1,000.

Since there were so many guns at one place, how many people were shot?


Guns=shootings, right?

Probably junk that wouldn't even fire....

Not so much people willing to give up their firearms, you must have at least 5 to 15% of the people that gave broken arms and others that kept a set of guns home, they came to please their brainwashed kids and wife, to make them stop behaving like MSM parrots.

Not sure which are the bigger idiots. The people for selling their guns ridiculously cheap that they could get more money for elsewhere or the government for running a fence operation by buying stolen property.

It's L. friggin A. for crying out loud. The government is almost certainly allowing gang members to anonymously sell murder weapons.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

and as soon as they left the scene
with their cash, they dropped
off by the gun store and used
that money to upgrade to a nicer
weapon.

What i found very strange looking at the news footage, are the cops handling the weaps like they were toxic or something,by the front or rear end, was it to keep finger prints intact for futher expertises ? i would be an uncovered murderer i have would clean up the guns used to commit my crimes, since the cops didn't ask anything to these lined up people participating to the collection.

How we'll we know some these weaps won't be used again in some fabricated carnage or else ?

That stinks so much lol!

The number of shootings there probably equaled the number of shootings at gun shows.

Most of the guns are stolen anyway. these people are not turning in "their" guns. The government "buy back" is the biggest illegal pawn brokerage of stolen guns the world has ever known!

What a Crock. Just encourages more theft.
