Save Our Guns – “You may recall a few years ago the City held a oddly named “Gun Buyback” event, oddly named since the City of Tucson did not sell the guns in the first place. During the one-day event, people were encouraged to trade any firearm for a $50 Safeway gift card with “no questions asked.” It was a strange activity for the city since it was providing a service that is already available in the private sector; anyone can take a gun to a gunshop and sell it to the licensed dealer. Unlike the licensed dealer, however, the ‘no questions asked’ caveat made clear that the city was willing to act as a fence for stolen property.” And then they destroy them in contravention of state law.

The laws of supply and demand still work, even in California . . . “Lines Out The Door”: How Americans Respond When Liberal States Restrict Their Gun Rights – “The window is closing on freedom in the Golden State, as liberal government leaders and increasingly bureaucratic laws are being used to strip away the rights of the people. Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a slew of new laws, seen by many as unconstitutional, that will make it incrementally more difficult for Californians to keep and bear arms. But in response to new restrictions on owning so-called ‘assault weapons’ and certain types of semi-automatic firearms, millions are lining up to make purchases during the last legal time frame to do so.”
