This Man Wants Your Guns
Darby Borough Police Chief Bob Smythe says the gun buy back event held last week in his town was a big success. Some 57 guns were exchanged for $100 gift cards to Shop Rite.
There is no evidence that these buy back programs have ever made a dent in crime in any of the cities where they've ever been tried and they've been tried for years.
Still, the chief was pretty convincing when I visited with him Wednesday. If nothing else a few pretty poor people got money for food in exchange for whatever guns they had laying around their homes. Not the worst way to blow $5,700.
