Gun turn-in events are labeled with the Orwellian term “buyback.” They are not “buybacks”. You cannot “buy back” items you never owned before.

The El Paso gun turn-in event was held on October 28, 2023. It was scheduled to start at 8:00 a.m. It started about 10 minutes early in Ascarate Park. The money for the event came from the American Rescue Plan, where the Biden administration created 1.5 trillion dollars out of totally recyclable electrons. The politicians who receive the money must find a way to spend it. Gun turn-in events are a way to expend money. reported significant money had been handed out by 10 a.m. From

According to El Paso County Commissioner Carlos Leon, $60,000 worth of gift cards were made available by the county to be exchanged for firearms, and by 10 a.m., $51,000 worth had already been handed out.

That amount equated to roughly three hundred guns, including handguns, rifles, shotguns, assault style rifles, as well as antique firearms.

Of the $300,000 allocated for these events in El Paso, $120,000 will be used for advertising and administrative costs.

El Paso was not as gun-friendly as Dallas. The city is a Democratic stronghold. Private buyers were asked by the police to set up across the street from the entrance to the event. El Paso needed an advocate like CJ Grisham.

There were five private buyers at the El Paso event. Police were not as friendly as at the Dallas event. They asked the participants for identification and insinuated the private buyers were doing something illegal. When the participants politely refused, the police officers told them to have a good day and left. The private buyers were dressed in casual attire.

This minty HK VP9 was purchased by a private buyer in El Paso. As I recall they paid $200.

The serial number was obfuscated in the image, to protect the privacy of the private buyer.

I had to look twice. At first glance, I thought it had a bunch of small holes drilled in it.😨
