I detest gun buybacks. Not only are they anti-gun agitprop—security theater for politically correct politicians bent on civilian disarmament—but they destroy tens of thousands of perfectly good guns at taxpayers’ expense (even when we’re “just” paying for police overtime and adding to their po-po’s pension payout). foxnews.com used this image above their story Colorado recall vote on gun control without mail ballots changes dynamic. The caption reads “FILE: July 30, 2013: A deputy sheriff looks at a disabled gun to be melted down at a gun buy-back program in Los Angeles, Calif. (REUTERS).” Which kinda implies the sheriff’s department “disabled” this revolver pre-melt down. What kind of animal would do that to a [now identified as a Rossi] wheelgun ? [NB: I refuse to accept the possibility that a gun owner abused this piece ahead of its untimely end.] It just goes to show you that the people running gun buybacks have no respect for history, art or Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. As if you didn’t know.
