San Francisco gun buyback - more money & time wasted!

As you'll recall from my last gun buyback posting, gun buybacks are a complete waste of Police manpower & city tax revenue.

Jason Rantz posted an excellent editorial about the recent San Francisco gun buyback event:

Peter Buxtun, a 70-year-old gun advocate, turned in two pistols Saturday that he said were worthless. He collected $300 in gift cards.

"You can buy junk guns for $10 and then use the gift cards to buy new guns," he said. "I saw a half-dozen uniformed SF police officers taken off the street to sit for hours in a City Hall photo-op, instead of patrolling certain drug-ridden and gang-infested neighborhoods."

Gun Buy Backs are justa bunch of political BS; curry favor and votes. Boston has tried it a couple of time; disaster resulted. Big increase in shootings and murders. Keep your stupid ideas off of my firearm.
