Gun owners can get up to $100 in Walmart gift cards in exchange for unwanted weapons during a buyback event Saturday in Pompano Beach.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the E. Pat Larkins Community Center at 520 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Buyback participants are asked to bring weapons unloaded and without ammunition, with the cylinder or firing action open and in a secure bag or container.

Only found out about it a few minutes ago. I would be very nice to get a first hand account.

I do not know if there were any local activists looking to make their presence known and possibly pick up some decent guns for little money.

Private sales are legal in Florida, as they are in most states.... for now.

Participating in a gun buy back program is like a guy getting castrated because his neighbor has too many kids.

How would an idiot Democrat (other than one of their younger “Holder’s People” gangbangers) even know what an “action” or “cylinder” is?

What a F joke by sick ignorant jackasses. Is this strong enough? It just convinces more real Americans to load up with ammo and buy more guns. They realize this form of confiscation is telling us something bad is about to happen.

“How can the buy them BACK if they didn’t sell them in the first place? Inquiring minds want to know.”

They can not, of course. The term “buyback” is pure propaganda, designed to promote the idea that the government owns all guns and that they merely allow some people to have some guns, some of the time.

I use and promote the term “turn in” which is more appropriate.

I try to find out about these events and publish them, but I did not find out about this one in time.

By Freerepublic rules (for good reason!) we have to use the original titles for articles.

Well, you see, everything belongs to the government and they let you keep what they think you deserve. You know, like 0bama saying sometimes you just earned enough, you don’t need more. After all, you didn’t build that!

(Freepers? Do I REALLY need a sarcasm tag here?)

Obama had his outfit looking to rally there to support the gun turn in:

“Looking for Organizing for Action volunteens to rally in support of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s initiative to get guns off the streets of Pompano Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and surrounding towns.”

$100 per gun? That’ll buy you a rusted .22 single shot.

Thanks. You made the point explicitly that I was trying to imply. I wonder, does this mean in the future that we can have “shoot backs” at statists who didn’t actually physically shoot at us first?

You MEAN this as sarcasm, but I can assure you that Democrats and not a few Republicans actually see things that way. Anyone who tells you what a tax cut COSTS sees your earnings exactly the way you (sarcastically) described
