    Event: Gun Buyback Lansing Feb 9th

    An opportunity to purchase firearms for as little as $50 cash.

    If interested in attending, please bring a sign and cash. We will likely be standing/walking on the sidewalk in front of the church.

    Uhm... lil you must really like sleeping on the couch. Women have a way of keeping tabs on us. She will most likely find this post.

    Hope you get a nice firearm at this event. MrMike40cal got a nice (pretty much new ruger 9mm). At the last Detroit buy back. So there are some good deals if one is in the right place at the right time.

    Girlfriend texted me yesterday and said "My cell phone bill is due, good thing today is pay day!"

    Now, that would normally be just fine, except for the fact that I'm the one who gets paid on Fridays

    I'm going to try my best to make it there, I have to be at the Loco in downtown Detroit to take my mom and her boyfriend to lunch that day around 1-ish so maybe I'll get some good stuff within the hour or two I'll be able to stay.

    I'm interested, and would love to come, however my car was wrecked, and I'm stuck to walking distance from Eastpointe.

    WILX notified. They seem interested in our counter "buyback".

    I would also suggest bringing a current book of gun values. This provides a great opportunity to rephrase the narrative of "getting guns off the street" as anti-rights supporters wish to describe the event.

    Much better to phrase it as "ripping off the citizens" event.

    When the media begins to describe "getting guns off the street", you can easily show people standing in line how badly they're getting screwed and spotlight the entire program as the public ripoff it is.

    "Excuse me ma'am Did you know if you take that Singer 1911 you're holding to the gun store, they'll give you more than the $50 the cops are handing out?"

    Wouldn't spotlighting how badly the "authorities" are screwing little old ladies using the public's own tax dollars be a wonderful thing for the entire city to watch on Channel 5 that evening?

    Great idea! Also given the chance - one of our wise spokespersons (Hint Q) should point out that when police have been asked in the past how these events reduce gun violence/crime as they claim - they have not been able to produce any evidence that they do. Why? Because criminals don't turn in guns - just law abiding citizens like the little old ladies and others that have been duped into it by our officials/media etc.. who would have used them in lawful self defense. So in reallity the police are leaving those who need protection the most to the wolves! Nice...

    too bad....ive a bunch of binary explosives(that is, my personal recipe on tannerite) i was gonna turn in at $50 per half pound.

    for those interested, there is also a gun show in the lansing area in mason at the ingham co. fairgrounds this weekend, you can buy your guns for super cheap and then spend the money you saved on the guns on accessories and ammo, they are open till 6pm saturday.

    there is also another gun rally at the capitol building friday before the buyback and gunshow.

    You mean -- the gun show that doesn't allow the lawful loaded carry of a firearm?

    I'll pass.

    Im deciding to go sunday, taking my woman and then her aunt(whom is only 5 years older, apparently her grandparents had fun to a ripe age) and her fiance...she is new to guns and wants to look around and get a feel for her first one.
    plus i am well beyond critically low on all ammunition...and the stores are out completely and im not paying 300% markup on MGO, im pretty sure most of it will be gone on sunday but i need at least a box for everything. i had a new shooter that wanted to learn and i could not say no to her, now i have the lowest amount of ammo for my guns ive had since i was 15....

    Ain't that the truth!

    On topic - at the gun buy back - if you ask the person who is selling the firearm - they often do have ammo too, they are just too afraid to have it anywhere near the gun(s). When my father-in law passed away his wife could not wait to get rid of his guns. I asked what are you afraid of - they are not loaded right? She said not to her knowledge. I quickly followed with - most likely there's not even any ammo for them in the house, is there? She said oh yes there in the spare room away from where he kept the guns in a storage box. Moral of the story - never hurts to ask. You may save some money on ammo too, if you're savvy. You may have to meet up with them after the gun deal somewhere but it still can be worth it depending on how much or little they want for ammo and how much they have.

    So? How does that make it 'OK'? If they all did body cavity searches before you could go in, would that be 'OK'?

    But, there is one outfit in Michigan that does gun shows, AND allows lawful carry.

    Be an informed shopper
