Crowds Flock to Gun Buyback Programs Nationwide in Response To Connecticut Shooting


TWG:  Normally, this would be pretty irritating to watch. But only the glassy eyed idiots would willingly relinquish their firearms in this manner, and I just don’t care about those beasts anymore.  Better they give up their firearms and be put first in line for the gulags.   Let them be enslaved and murdered first. After all, they voted for it.

Law-abiding Americans across the country are turning in their guns as part of police buyback programs in response to the school massacre in Connecticut – a shocking illustration of how citizens are choosing to disarm themselves without the need for gun control legislation.

Citizens in Brooklyn, San Francisco, Oakland, Evanston, Ill, and Baltimore all lined up around the block to sell their guns back to police as a gesture in response to the Sandy Hook shooting on Friday.

Mt. Ollie Baptist Church in Brownsville and St. Peters Lutheran Church in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn opened their doors for people to anonymously turn in their guns on Saturday, with the program netting 134 weapons, most of which were revolvers and pistols.

In another buyback event at Prince George’s County, 150 guns were handed in for cash, while a further 160 were exchanged for gift cards at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Laurel, MD.

In San Francisco and Oakland, gun buyback events drew huge crowds and netted over 600 weapons turned in for cash and gift credit cards.

Residents in Evanston also turned in 45 firearms during a buyback event held on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Baltimore police took in 461 guns at a buyback event, during which one of the attendees, 65-year-old grandmother Sonia White, remarked, “After the incident yesterday, it was time to get it out of the house.”

Some of the buyback events were planned before the shooting but some were arranged in response to the massacre. The Huffington Post notes that the shooting caused a “spike in participation” in the events, with most people attending citing the tragedy as the reason for turning in their firearms.

“Yesterday’s tragedy was a tragedy. People feel despair about gun violence in America and the question is, ‘What can I do?’ Well, this is it,” said Olis Simmons, president of Youth UpRising, one of the groups responsible for organizing the buyback events.

What’s particularly baffling about the willingness for law abiding people to relinquish their firearms is the fact that they are ensuring they will be defenseless in their own homes right before Christmas when criminals and burglars are more prone to strike. The grandmother mentioned above has now left herself completely defenseless should an armed criminal attempt to break in to her house.

The shooting did not however deter attendees to a gun show in Montgomery County, which drew a record crowd.

With recent Black Friday gun sales hitting all time highs, the Obama Administration and Democrats have moved swiftly to exploit the wave of anti-gun rhetoric in the aftermath of the shooting to prepare draconian gun control legislation.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has demanded that the Obama administration take “executive action” against the second amendment, while Senator Feinstein has vowed to introduce new gun grabbing legislation at the beginning of next year’s congressional session.

    If they let citizens who wanted to buy guns from them into the events they would have made more money! What’s with Bloomberg? Is this guy deranged or something? I wouldn’t let him take care of a dog much less a city.

    Reblogged this on Tea Party Train and commented:
    I totally agree with you, if others want to “disarm” themselves good for them, but don’t try and take our guns and leave us “defenseless” against the criminals!!! This world is getting crazier and crazier, in case no one has noticed. Disarming people and preventing them from defending themselves from criminals is just DUMB! Another DUMB idea from Dumbo-crats and Demon-rats Liberal Losers! Go to HELL, obama and all your “sheep”, that choose to follow you to the “gas chambers”!! We Texans will NOT be so easy to disarm!! Remember the Holocaust!!! Don’t volunteer to be a victim of the Marxist Muslime taking over America!!

      The way the glassy eyeds have been threatening to line us up and shoot us, and murder us in various other ways, I have to admit that I’m glad those vile beasts are disarming themselves. I could not have said this up to a few years ago, but after being threatened with rape, torture and death for over 8 years now, I can say that I hope they’re first in line for the gas. I realize that’s a harsh statement, but it’s how I really feel.

    These people selling their guns back are fools. We are living in the days of a fascist regime – the one that the Second Amendment was written for. If they want my guns, they’ll have to pry them out of my cold, dead hands. My daughters and son feel the same way. This mom didn’t raise any fools.

      Only a glassy eyed idiot would relinquish their guns today. And I have to admit that I’ve reached the point where I don’t even WANT those beasts armed anymore. After all the threats of rape, torture and death, not to mention that by voting for, and supporting this horrid regime of marxists, communists, socialists, islamics and other terrorists, they’ve proven they lack the integrity and intelligence to make wise decisions. They’re not responsible enough to own and use firearms.

    I would never turn in guns, because you never know what is going to happen in these times. What happens when the economy totally collapses? Pure bedlam.

      Only a glassy eyed fool would turn in their guns. Especially given today’s “temperature”.
