As predicted, the so called gun "buy-back" pushed by Governor Cuomo and the Attorney General was an epic failure in Utica, NY.

Now we won't go into how it is impossible for the government to "buy-back" something they never owned. What we will get into is how they market the gun "buy-backs" as a good thing that stops crime. It is all about the spin!

The video below will show that guns being turned in are by old people that are confused by the the new unSAFE Act. It will also show that a lot of the guns being turned in are in odd calibers where ammunition is not available. The video will even go further and show a lot of junky guns that probably don't even work.

Another issue that needs to be addressed is that some of those guns were possibly stolen. Notice how the police are handling the firearms? The throw them in a big garbage can to be scratched and dented to the point of being worthless. Do the police even intend to return the property to the rightful owners?

Anyways, so now the AG and Cuomo will spin the facts and state that the gun "buy-backs" were a success. They'll state they removed hundreds of firearms off the streets and out of the hands of criminals.

WKTV "Utica Police Sgt. Wayne Manolescu says the program is a good one designed to keep people safe. Manolescu says most of the guns are from homes where people have had the guns for a long time and no longer use them, "Bring them in and get them out of their home, so if their home is ever burglarized or something like that, they're not going to get in the wrong hands, so it makes it safer for us on the street and every citizen, guns off the street and destroyed the right way."

I agree with the Sgt. Good job gentlemen.

Why are you so butt hurt about what other people choose to do with their weapons?
