    I'm pretty excited that there's going to be a gun buy back in a city near me but are there any repercussions. I know it will miss them off but can they mess with me, soliciting or trespassing if it's a public area?

    If you're asking would it be okay for you to "buy back" some of the guns being brought in? I personally wouldn't go anywhere near there. I think you'd just be asking for a big helping of trouble. good luck

    These events are simply dumbass.

    The few potmetal Lorcin POSs they

    do manage to pull off the street,

    no self-respecting criminal would use,

    anyway.

    It's like picking up litter during Ecology Week. Major polluters

    remain unaffected, and, like the guy peeing in a dark suit,

    all people get is a warm feeling, and nobody notices...:rolleyes:


    How about spending the funding on Vocational Training, and getting

    people who would resort to crime, in desperation, some jobs?

    Aw, crap, that's right, that makes too much sense for

    money-wasting democrats.

    I'm a chl holder so they couldn't say I'm a possible felon. But I do feel like they will try to mess with me

    How can a church buy back what it didn't own in the first place?

    Good question. I didn't even realize that it was a halfway house doing it I thought it was hosted by the dpd but check out these numbers. It hurts to think those 400 firearms got there fate because of their title...sad, sad, sad

    Private sales are legal in Texas, IMO I think you would be good to go. I'd probably call a local lawyer first though.

    These "Buy" backs are actually illegal. These organizations are advertising and organizing to do a Firearms Business. This requires an FFL. This goes beyond the private sales rules. The BATFE of course ignores this. :rolleyes:

    Some of the antis are smart enough to know this. Josh Suggarman of the VPC is one of 2 or 3 FFLs in DC. It really pisses me off that the ATF issued him an FFL. They won't give any of us one unless we are "engaged in the business". He most certainly is not engaged in the business.

    If face-to-face transfers are legal there then I would show up with a bunch of cash and buy up what I could.

    A year or so ago I went to a "buyback" in San Francisco and while I did not take advantage of the situation I saw a lot of deals going down and I kick myself for not having the foresight to bring a wad of cash myself. There were a lot of very valuable guns that were turned in for $200 a pop. SF cops were all over the place and never said or did anything to stop or question anybody outside of checking if guns were loaded when you went inside.

    Since then they have tightened things up a lot. Now you have to put the guns in the trunk of a car or the bed of a truck and stay in the vehicle (this is in another county though). They will not allow people to look it over and make deals on the way in.

    Not only that but if one of the firearms is stolen and/or has been used in a crime the recipient is guilty of a crime for accepting it. These guns will not be returned to their rightful owners if they were stolen. That is fencing stolen property.

    i would call the local BATF office and make an anonymous tip that there is going to be some illegal gun sales taking place and give them the address!:p

    i'll bet they are not verifying proper ownership of any of these guns either. it would not suprise me one bit if a majority were not stolen at some point.

    Sig, i would not be caught buying anything if it were me. Murphy's Law. the one gun you happen to buy for a really good price, will be stolen.

    True, I'm glad I looked the place up. I agree that they shouldn't be buying up guns it doesn't solve anything. Dumbass people will try even harder to steal guns given their new motivation.

    If these "Buy" backs were really concerned about gun crimes they would require BG checks on their customers. What if a gun was used in a crime? He sells the gun to the idiots and walks away. That is much better than throwing in the river. Selling the evidence of your last crime is very innovative.:rolleyes:

    I do have the advantage of knowing a cop who will run the numbers for me. If it turns up stolen I turn it in to him. So far I have not had to turn in anything. I imagine it would be a bit complicated if I were to call in a number from the SF "buyback" and it came up as a stolen gun, but if I were to wait until I was in his jurisdiction and then call it in......?

    Yanno, all of this is speculation. I haven't done it and despite my inclination to save some guns from the melting pot I will never buy a gun that way.

    Ya got that Bobthefed?

    I would say if you have any POS guns likeRavens, Lorcins,Jennings,etc,hell take them and get some cash and use that towards a good gun.Hell,$50 for a Lorcin is more than a pawn shop will give you for that POS;) You should go and check back with us about what kind of guns were turned in.If someone turns in a Glock for only $50,it's gotta be very stolen or the owner really needs crack.
