    12/19/2023 11:12:49 AM PST · by Impala64ssa · 4 replies
    The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office has opened an investigation into New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence, a nonprofit group that planned a gun buyback in the community. Sheriff Shane Ferrari said after the buyback was canceled by the city of Farmington, the nonprofit came to Farmington on Dec. 16 and collected unwanted guns, despite the buyback being canceled. “They came here by themselves with no law enforcement, and did it anyway. It’s the citizens that brought this to my attention, and we’re looking into it,” Ferrari said. Farmington Police Chief Steve Hebbe said he was not investigating New Mexicans...

    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. KVIA.com reported significant...

    In San Antonio, Texas, at the Alamodome parking lot, a gun buyback is planned from noon to 5 p.m. “Buyback” is an Orwellian term designed to give the impression all guns come from the government. You can not “buy back” what you never owned. A more correct term would be gun turn-in because the guns are turned in to the police to be destroyed.A flurry of gun turn-in/”buyback” events have been scheduled recently for Dallas, El Paso, and San Antonio, Texas, and for three cities in New Mexico. Much of the money for these events comes from dollars created by...

    On Saturday, November 4, 2023, New Mexico held three simultaneous gun turn-in events, also known by the Orwellian term “buyback”. Items cannot be “bought back” if they were never owned by the entity purchasing them. The events were decided on by executive order from Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. It is unclear where the money for the gun turn-in event came from. A query to the New Mexico State Police has remained unanswered. Several cities are using money created by the Biden administration in the American Rescue Plan for gun turn-in events, “buybacks.” El Paso has dedicated $300,000 for such...

    Second Amendment activists have scored a victory in the battle to have reality influence the debate over gun culture in the United States.For years, those who want a disarmed population have attempted to demonize homemade firearms as “ghost guns.” They have claimed they are an existential threat to the people of the USA and the world. The claim is that the lack of a serial number somehow makes a gun more dangerous. Serial numbers are easy to remove. Homemade guns have existed since before the Republic was founded. Serial numbers were not required on firearms until 1968. The claim a...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) used a Monday post on X to call for a buyback of AR-15s and firearms that Democrats refer to as “assault weapons.” He also wants a ban in place to keep future AR-15s from being manufactured or sold. Swalwell posted: The attacker that struck the Jacksonville Dollar General on Saturday was armed with a Glock handgun and an AR-15-style rifle. Therefore, banning the rifle would not have prevented the attack from occurring. Moreover, on October 10, 2022, Breitbart News reported FBI data showing more than twice as many people were killed with knives and other cutting...

Mitchell suggested that “if” the Louisville incident turned out to be the result of using an assault rifle, how much damage may have been done to the victim’s bodies. “Ken, not to be too graphic, but if it does turn out to be that kind of weapon, the damage to your bodily organs, as we’ve...
