JOHNSON CITY — A flowers for guns exchange will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the St. James Rectory parking lot at 155 Main St. All working handguns, shotguns and rifles in working condition will be traded for flowers. Ammunition will also be accepted.” This isn’t the stupidest gun control idea in the history of the world, ever. Oh wait. It is.

  1. If I were a clever head of a gang (given that gang members are pretty stupid, I grant you this is a reach, but stay with me), I’d get one of my more presentable guys to clean up, put him in a suit and use him to front some sort of organization that’s trying to reform the streets. I’d stage my own gun buy-back (maybe offer a “45 for 45s” promotion, and perhaps trade a six pack of Colt 45 Malt Liquor for a working gun). When I have all the guns, then I’d hand ’em out to my peeps and take over the whole town. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! With all the guns, we’d be invincible! (Not even Vince could stop us!)

  2. Sorry Brad but your idea wouln’t work because the only guns that are ever traded in don’t work, that’s why people go to these silly events. If someone has a real gun that is worth anything, they would just take it to their local gun shop.

  3. I’d buy ’em a few dozen red roses for one of those mint era M14’s! Hey, are those 2000 fps daisies I’ve been hearing about? With all the love of the military during the Vietnam War, local youths assist National Guard members in installing the new, covert Blank Firing Adapters… Face down loaded M14 rifles-what would YOU do for a Klondike Bar!?

  4. Stupid? It’s brilliant! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go out and buy some flowers.
