SAVANNAH, Ga. --
It's been more than a week since the Coastal Empire Fair shooting and a local organization is taking action to help put a stop to gun violence in the city.
The Georgia Coastal Southern Christian Leadership Conference is working on a Savannah gun buyback program targeting youths in the community.
The group is working on finding locations where gun owners can drop off their weapons, no questions asked, and receive a $50 voucher in return.

Private sales are legal in Georgia, but freedom activists in other states have been harrassed by police. A recorder is a good idea. If more than one activist is present, you can each record the other if harrassment is threatened.
Freedom activists have purchased guns at these events in several states:
Gun-buying enthusiasts crash firearms turn-in event at Memorial Coliseum(OR)
Cleveland Gun Buyback Program Attracts Buyers Offering Cash for Guns (VIDEO) (OH)
The Detroit PD Doesnt Like Competition(MI)
The did that here in York, PA, at least twice, with no noticable decrease in gun violence.
Some sick SOB was passing out fliers showing how to make a working gun out of materials available at any hardware store. he said we should make six of them, sell them in the buyback program, take the money, and buy a decent weapon.
That is a fine example of American ingenuity! Take advantage of fools throwing money away.
I never did understand the “buy-back” nomenclature for these freedom stomping events. How can you buy something back if you never had it in the first place? Rhetorical statement, I know. Maybe some sick SOB could offer a little better sneaker than the “authorities” or maybe “rechargeable” EBT cards. Do they have somebody on site with a cutting torch?
Big gun show in Reno this weekend. Turn out will be interesting to say the least.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
Sounds like an enterprenure and a patriot.
It comes from a leftists; it's a lie.
Everything leftists say is a lie. Even what they call themselves is a lie.
Democrat Party? They support big government, nanny state socialism, and do everything they can to prevent voters having any control over the government. The last thing they want is democracy.
Of course, I meant “sick” as a compliment, in this case, as in sick sense of humor. I don’t know if he followed through with it, himself, and I’m sure that if he had, the press would have jumped on it, or on him.
Well, I live in Savannah. ALl the crime is black on black, usually drug related. So maybe the deal should just apply to black people. Oh, wait. That’s racist. Sorry.
There are somewhere around 40,000-60,000 NRA firearms instructors in the country. The majority of them teach very few classes each year.
With a bit of planning, and a pile of Oleg Volk posters and flyers, an effort could be organized to offer free training to law-abiding eager to be disarmed masses. After all, the election proved that “We jes be lovin’ our free sh*t”.
At the same time it’s a good time to go there and unload your totally beat-up, broken, non-working guns for money. Save any guns that you might consider restoring/fixing, turn in the beyond-hope guns you won’t fix for vouchers, and use the voucher money to repair the ones you want to fix.
