Don't even have to read this propaganda, did the guns come from police lock up and they hired a couple sticks to sign that they were there guns? They may be able to fool alot of people with this side show circus.

This "gun buy back" is the most flawed idea. Typical government thinking.

#1. It's not a buy back. You can't buy back something you didn't buy in the first place.

#2. They are commiting a crime. They "buy back" the guns for the express purpose of destroying them.
Problem is , they bought the guns "back" with taxpayer money, which makes the guns public property. Then they intentionally destroy public property.

What do you think?

This was just some bull concocked by the king and his court jesters, with joe running this circus side show attraction. Most of the guns were inopperable so the king paid double, first for the sticks and than the buy back.
