Here we go....sounds an awful lot like other countries prior to gun control hitting hard..

Tacoma wants people to drop off their guns like library books.

The City of Tacoma is crafting a new program that would place firearm drop boxes in neighborhoods, away from police presence, in hopes of encouraging people, particularly youth, to anonymously turn in guns.

"It takes out the up-front interaction with law enforcement," said Melissa Cordeiro, gang reduction project coordinator for Tacoma.

People can already turn in guns to police. Firearms can be dropped off at the station or police can be called to pick them up, anonymously in many cases.


So I read on ATS before from another poster that said this was what they had done in the UK prior to full gun control hitting. I see this as a test bed for it becoming a state by state beginning, or at least a push to do so. Guessing they will have cameras set up at each one as well just in case a criminal decides to commit a crime then drop their gun off to get rid of the evidence.

Hope the boxes are big, heavy and bolted down, otherwise this will be a nicely packaged gift box of weapons in the wrong hands.....

That was exactly my first thought. A big, ol' gift box of firearms. Of course, being big and heavy won't always stop people. A family member found this on the sidewalk of 8 Mile in Detroit:



Couldn't have been any easy feat to remove from wherever it came from. Even bolts can be cut or removed.

Until the UK (or Washington State, for the matter) share a border with Mexico....I don't think their experiences will matter a whole lot to me.

It would be so much easier to just outlaw murder and armed robbery.

Goshdarnit!
My guns are too big to fit in that little box.
Guess I'll just have to hang on to them.

I do not understand. The more I read the less I understand. I do get that the UN would like to be the only force with weapons on the planet. Yet if we are in any jeopardy of currency collapse, civil unrest, weather emergencies, emp, you name it, seems the Police and Military would rather have well rounded, healthy citizens armed to back them then be responsible for 400 million people. In my area if you call the police it takes at least 20 minutes for them to arrive, what about in a true emergency?

It would be awesome if noone did a drop. But then who knows the set up here to make it seem like the thing to do. Sheeple follow.

I'd be hanging out in front of the drop boxes. "Hey, you're just going to drop that gun in a box? How would you like cash for it?"

I could raise the money by setting up drop boxes for stolen cash. "Did you steal some money? Would like to turn it in without dealing with the police? Just drop it off in this box and I'll take care of it for you."

I could make a whole city block of drop boxes. Turn in your guns, stolen cash and jewelry, legal drugs, controlled substances, prostitutes, whatever. One stop dropping for all your drop off needs.

Washington is my home State, and the progressive agenda of gun control has been a "thing" here gaining steam the last few years. Tacoma makes sense, though, for no other reason than the high crime rate and gunplay that can be found in the Hill Top area.

www.streetgangs.com...

The City of Tacoma may be dreaming of high capacity firearms popular with gangs in their city, but will receive broken relics or guns used in crimes that can be dumped no questions asked. You only need to look at the weapons traded out in the gun buy-back program several years ago in Seattle to see what types of firearms people will dump.

In the event that doesn't work... A cleverly worded, persuasive sign oughta do the trick. "Theft-free Zone". That'll stop the criminals dead in their tracks.

i can't help but hear that verse about "unwalled villages" in my head, every time i read a story about people surrendering weapons.

Gaining steam for years?
But..but..isn't this Cascadia?

Jade told us that Cascadia just adores the 1st Amendment!

I guess the ones who cannot be named are really really scared of guns, but why?

Isn't ISIS coming? How will we cope, if all the guns are in the closets of our masters?

We're the good guys, for zion's sake! And we believe everything they tell us!

No dewd, all we have to do is to outlaw implusiveness. That way, when anyone tries to impulsively shred the Constitution, we will send them to a concentration camp, er, I mean detention center, you know what I mean: a nice pretty walled city where they'll feel safe from ISIS, guns, CB radios, and swimming pools, at long last. Any and all of 'em! And they can live there, indefinitely! That way they'll know we love them, just like Jesus loved them. Live and let live!

Contained as such, I see no problem when they stage elections, or lie through their teeth.
To show there aren't any hard feelings, they can even have their own TV show! What more could they possibly want?
