Why not sell the guns to law abiding citizens and use that money to help as well?

Why destroy antiques that may be very valuable to collectors and usless to criminals?

Since the police were checking, how many of these guns were used in some type of crime? If the answer is zero, how effective was this political event anyway?

Is anyone going to commit that crime will go down because of this stunt? I'd doubt it, it has never done so in the past.

I can't wait until we nationalize this idiocy.

One man brought in a Soviet-era semiautomatic carbine.

"If that got into the wrong hands of gangbangers, they could kill several people within minutes," Woods said. "Our biggest fear is a house getting burglarized and these guns getting taken."
Well, folks, those brazen propagandists at Big Media are already starting to beat the gun-control tomtoms. Now why do you think they are doing that, hmm? Could it be that Barack Obama is hoping to ram through an agenda of citizen-disarmament bills and his loyal stooges are setting the stage for him?

You can bet that in the coming months those deceitful spin-meisters at @SS-Socialist Press will be bombarding the public with drivel like this on a daily basis. Anyone want to take the bet?
