Mr. Iverson should give the 100K to an inner-city school to buy it the latest and greatest computers, or maybe fund an arts or computer science teacher for a year. THAT would make a difference, instead of some meaningless money transfers for some chain stores.

You would do better arming good honest citizens to defend them against the criminal element, or try enforcing the thousands of gun laws on the books.

He's doing a lot more than I've done.
I agree that it's a positive attempt on his part to save a life, and a reasonably shoddy article by our local paper.

Either we all have guns or none of us do. Outlaw the weapon, not the people.

Check out the stats, more people die every year from automobiles than from firearms. So, following your logic, while were busy urinating on the Bill of Rights, lets outlaw automobiles - cuz after all, Ted Kennedy cant resist driving drunk.

Your disregard for what the founding fathers considered undeniable, inherent, God-given freedom of the people is alarming and disturbing.

Interesting development in Los Angeles, the founder of an anti-gun group was just arrested for manufacturing machine guns. Turns out he ties to local gangs and such and was supplying them with weapons. Could we be seeing the same situation here?

Did Mr. Iverson happen to sell back HIS guns to the NNPD at the same time while he was doing all this goodwill stuff? I hope he did. I'm sure he did.....well, maybe he thought about doing it.

As I recall, the Fed used refer to such 'donations' as "bribes" when those terrible racketeering people operated in Chicago in the early 1900's? Protection money?

I'm a little old lady in my 100's and need protection.....I also need money...... Big money.... FAST!
Does anyone have Mr. Iverson's home phone #?

He already does that via the local Boys and Girls club of Newport News, VA.

It is the dumb thing to do to pay for weapons. I or anyone can buy a weapon on the street for 10 to 20 dollars. So now you buy it for 100 and they can buy 10 or 5 weapons and still pay for their fix. Are you stupid or just living in a special place? So proud you must be that you can use this program to fool the public!

Question, considering Iverson's past misdeeds, is this someone looking to disarm future victims? Not withstanding the fact that gun buybacks have been shown to useless and wastes of time and money.
His criminal misdeeds needed to be part of the story. It gives us clues to his motivations.
Your a clown!

If the second amendment doesn't apply (or needs to be revised) I guess the same could be said for all of them.

Frau Maria,
Remember this version of gun control? And you wonder why we Ami's are such strong defenders of our 2nd Amendment?

§ 1
Jews (§ 5 of the First Regulations of the German Citizenship Law of 14 November 1935, Reichsgesetzblatt 1, p. 1332) are prohibited from acquiring. Possessing, and carrying firearms and ammunition, as well as truncheons or stabbing weapons. Those now possessing weapons and ammunition are at once to turn them over to the local police authority.
§ 2
Firearms and ammunition found in a Jew's possession will be forfeited to the government without compensation.
§ 3
The Minister of the Interior may make exceptions to the Prohibition in § 1 for Jews who are foreign nationals. He can entrust other authorities with this power.
§ 4
Whoever willfully or negligently violates the provisions of § 1 will be punished with imprisonment and a fine. In especially severe cases of deliberate violations, the punishment is imprisonment in a penitentiary for up to five years.
§ 5
For the implementation if this regulation, the Minister of the Interior waives the necessary legal and administrative provisions.
