Buy Buy Guns


Many people queued up at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Van Nuys Masonic Temple to hand in their firearms in exchange for grocery store gift cards. 

Cards ranged from $100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and up to $200 for assault weapons.

Valerie Butler aged 50 was getting rid of one of her guns and said "There's a bunch of nuts out here, and they're coming in when you're sleeping. You got to protect yourself."

Charles Edwards aged 60 said that $100 of free groceries, was worth his 50 mile trip. He went on to say how many people were doing it as they felt bad about the Sandy Hook tragedy also "Times are tough." He still has a shotgun at home. "That's all I need."

By the afternoon the event had already surpassed the 1,673 guns collected last year, and officials were scrambling to get more gift cards, which were donated by Ralphs.
Most of the weapons recovered were "mom and pop guns," police said — hunting rifles, shotguns — but they got a few dozen assault weapons as well.

People are merely getting rid of any of their extra guns they don't use much for some grocery money. It's all very nice and all but would anyone intent on shooting up a school be handing in their weapons?
Will these weapons make a difference? .... no they won't.

OMG! a rocket launcher .... um so what, were there any rockets to go with it? Lucky it's off the streets, someone might have tripped on it.

Old Knudsen cares nothing about a ban or restrictions on semi-automatic weapons, youse lot are twats and should leave weapons to professionals like him.

I think a law could be made against assault rifles, on the basis that most of the people calling for new laws don't know anything about weapons. 
You'll still have the semi-automatic handguns though, I doubt that anyone will restrict those too much. It's all about keywords people. ASSAULT RIFLE, BUSHMASTER, words that get clueless civvies ranting on Facebook.

There are millions of guns out there in America, for fucks sake for a few thousand dollars you can get a license to deal them and go sell assault rifles over the border in Mexico. Where do you think the cartels get most of their guns from? Mexico has strict gun owning laws .... does them little good.

Will gun bans/restrictions get grandfathered to include all the weapons already bought? why no because that would be impossible to implement. People are hoarding them now and the economy has been stimulated.

On Van Nuys Boulevard a homeless woman was in critical condition after a man walked out a shop with a bottle of rubbing alcohol, he poured it all over the homeless lady and threw a match at her and then ran.

Violet Phillips in her 60's often slept on a bus stop bench in front of the 24hrs Walgreens convenience store.  

Isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol is difficult to buy in the UK, there is a weaker version called surgical spirit that is sold in its place.

Now go compare this case to the lack of guns in the UK.  Crazy people will always find a way.
