    COLUMBIA, South Carolina - Police in South Carolina are giving out roses on Valentine's Day. All you have to do is turn in a gun Authorities are running the "Guns for Roses" program Saturday at two locations in the central part of the state.
    Anyone who turns in a gun gets a free rose and an electronics store gift card. A handgun gets a $100 gift card, while a rifle or shotgun nets a $50 gift card.
    Richland County sheriff's spokesman Lt. Chris Cowan says there has already been a great turnout at one Columbia location and deputies have seized about 75 guns in the first 90 minutes.
    He says there is no amnesty for gun owners. The weapons are checked to see if they are stolen and ballistics test will also be done.
    What is going on out there?!

    So let me get this straight...

    During a time when we are going to see a serious drop in Public Safety services, police, law enforcement, corrections, probation and parole...

    People are stupid enough to give away their guns?! They could at least donate them to OPENCARRY.ORG!

    That's a cause!

    Tyrants come in all shapes and sizes, as do those who do their bidding. Anyone who tells you that the threat of tyranny is long over, is either a fool, an enemy, or BOTH.

    this was sent to me in an email

    We had talked yesterday about just how someone would surrender their guns. AJC had an article Feb 15 about such an event. Columbia and Sumner, South Carolina police gave away a roses on Valentine's Day. Anyone turning in a gun got a rose and a Best Buy gift card ($100 for hand gun and $50 for long gun). They collected 223 guns.

    my thought? are they nuts???

    Wonder what they would do if you first ran a file down the barrel in front of them
    before handing it over.
    Just exercising my 5th amendment now pay up.

    Would love to know what sort of idiots turn in anything other than a $50
    sat night special, for a measly $100 and hope they don't go to jail.

    Of course we could be reading to much into this, maybe the police are just
    trying to get some throw away pieces for the normal line of duty stuff.
    $100 is pretty cheap to set up the dead guy and not get charged.
    Saves the tax payer in legal costs and settlments, they are such good people.
