Default Just sick and very wrong!

The pain and suffering that those weapons had to endure.

5,000 guns from buyback events melted into rebar, officials say

Rocket launcher? ROCKET LAUNCHERS?! Really?! Darn liberal media demonizing everything. This is a sickening shame.

SAD.
This bothers me as well.
I always wonder what really fine firearms are being destroyed.
SAD.

From what I can tell, I see two Enfields, a Mosin, a M1 Carbine, 2 AR15s, a 10/22, and 2 Mausers. This just makes me sick

A lot of those guns, the "bad" ones, are low quality

worn out crap being taken out of the hands of

potential troublemakers, OTOH.

There's some good in the bad here. Getting

Saturday night specials, and guns readily available to the

irresponsible actually helps the LAC gun-owner, in

the long run. Think about it. That pile of guns they destroyed,

could have each, in it's turn, been converted into negative

publicity and statistics to be used against US, the serious and

responsible gun owner.

Now consider this carefully, these guns weren't taken from

somebody responsible's safe, or lockbox, if they were freely available

to whomever brought them in, how many other mental patients,criminals,

irresponsible people could have gotten their hands on them?

Not to mention, every time they do this, our collections increase in

value...

Looking at the pictures some good quality replaceable stocks as well as functional firearms will be destroyed.

One of my cigar shop buddies in Fort Worth was one of the assistant chiefs (now retired from Fort Worth and Chief of a smaller town in Washington State), and he was in charge of the section that destroyed seized weapons. It DID break my heart to hear of some of the fine guns -- some with significant collector value -- that they destroyed every month. I tried to get him to hire me on a part time basis -- he wouldn't even have to pay me, just sorta look the other way occasionally -- but he wouldn't do it.

It's just wrong.

So explain to me why it is sick and wrong for someone to want to collect a bounty on a firearm they don't want? Just because we would not want to be a party to such a thing, why do we not respect the rights of others to deal with their property as they desire?

It is no skin of my teeth, and that is the acid test for something pissing me off.
