A first-ever "cash for guns" event at the Fresno Fairgrounds collected 447 guns in less than three hours Saturday before running out of gift cards to exchange for them.
""IMO", as long as people happily and "VOLUNTARILY" turn in guns for whatever, I am good with it.

I honestly can't believe people would even consider giving their guns for gift certificates. Where I come from, guns are a way of life and we would rather trust ourselves with them than our own socialist government.

They had a guns for cash fiasco in Detroit about three years ago. Turn them in for $150.00 and no questions asked. They took no names or anyway to know who turned in what. They found six murder weapons tied to the murders of 8 people. Most of the rest where rusted hulks of metal that had been improperly stored and the rest plain junk that couldn't be used. That is what you get with most of these turn ins in the larger metropolitan areas! No gangbanger is going to turn in a usable weapon for cash when he can sell it for a lot more than the turn in price. These programs are nothing but feel good face time on the MSM. The police chiefs and city councils do it for their own political good. It does nothing for safety and wastes money! They are show pieces!
