I did see one bright spot ion the article. Evanstown IL. basicly said, "In what reality do they think this will work?"

My veiw on it, Some people are geneticly prediposed to having a much higher chance of winning a Darwin Award. Those are the type of people who genrally, in all likelyhood, should not have guns anyway. Anyone who would trade a gun worth hundreds of dollars for a $50 gift card, and a shot that their insurance usually will cover for free, are not smart enough to see reason. No offense intended to the poster who traded in the Jennings, I only keep mine because it was my mother's, not because it is of "high quality". Most of the time, that flu shot will only protect you from last years flu virus. It won't do jack for preventing this years version, but hey, to each their own.

I have a better idea. They can give me the guns and I'll give them the flu. I love capitalism.

Buybacks remind me of one they had in Kansas City.....someone turned in one of those Guide Lamp .45cal Grease Guns made during WWII....somehow I think THAT ended up in the Chiefs gun collection.

I can't believe they actually had over 2,000 guns turned in. Can't see any gun owners I know letting their guns go unless its out of their cold dead hands.

Random Fact.

Flu shots are basically worthless. The influenza virus mutates every year, so the vaccine your getting is actually for last years flu. Chances are, it won't stop this years flu. It is also impossible to catch the flu from a flu shot, because the virus in the vaccine is dead. If you get the flu, it's because it was for last years flu, not this years.

So they are literally giving away their guns for nothing.
