    AZ:Opportunity for Cheap Guns, Phoenix turn in events in May 2013

    Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton has announced that he will be arranging a gun turn in for every Saturday during the month of May. Locations have yet to be announced, or what will be used as incentives for the turn ins.

    Called by the propaganda term “buy back” the programs insinuate that all firearms belong to the government, when in fact the guns were never owned by the government.

    This is a prime opportunity for Constitutionalists to have fun and the possibility of picking up some decent guns for very good prices. It appears that Mayor Stanton has $100,000 to play with, donated by Arizonans for Gun Safety, a citizens disarmament group. No one is saying where the money came from, except that it was an anonymous donor.

    It is easy to understand why a donor would not want their name associated with such foolishness.

    If the Mayor is smart, he will follow the example of Falmouth Maine, where the guns gathered were sold, and the proceeds were given to the special Olympics.

    The practice of appearing at these events has caught fire this year, with numerous activists showing up and obtaining nice firearms for good prices:

    Link NM:More than 300 guns sold at sheriff buy back event(and private sales!)

    Link PA:Gun Buyback Met With Competition In Bensalem.

    Outside, a group of gun advocates set up a table offering a better price to people carrying high-quality weapons.

    Link Second Gun Buyback Nets 42 Weapons

    Also in front of the church were people offering to buy the guns off of people before they reached the buyback event.

    Outside the police station, a group of four or five men gathered to offer cash to people who were bringing guns in.

    The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/W41mWY ) reports that a federally licensed gun dealer showed up to provide some competition. He bought a dozen weapons for $40 to $100 by standing outside the church with a sign that read “Cash 4 Guns.”

    When is Dayton going to have a "buy back"? I want to inexpensively "buy back" some guns that were never mine.

    Is there a website dedicated to providing competition at these "buy backs"? If not, is there an enterprising soul out there with too much time on his hands and a few computer skills to set one up? Some folks could make a fun living traveling around the countryside buying firearms at fire sale prices and then selling them to others or to FFLs at nice profits.

    MoneyForGuns.org is available. It sounds like a nice bleeding-heart get-the-guns-off-of-our-streets-and-save-our-children kind of name. Heh heh heh.

    I am glad it went well and a few weapons were rescued. We had one in seattle and the weapon purchasers all had a good time. This should happen every time they have a weapon confiscation. "Save the (parker) Hales!!"
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
