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.

Wish I could have joined you.. Did you see the musket hand gun, worth ZERO? 100 dollars in food. Did you see the 22 rifle all rusty and useless worth zero? Got a 100 dollar gift card. Crappy single shot shotgun? Worth 25 bucks, gets a 100 dollar gift card. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!

Ruger, Remington, Kimber, Smith and Wesson, Springfield, Winchester, Marlin, Glock and the host of other gun manufacturers? They will just make more!

Get the criminals stupid.

Bob... I don't want to try to top you on the (sic) thingee. But when you tried to get me on it on a post earlier this week, but ignored that I had posted a correction well before you posted your 'gotcha' that the correction had already corrected, in that vein please clarify who 'al' was that went down. Is it something you observed when you visited the museum? Should al going down have been reported to the authorities?

Anon - Are you suggesting that we repost every time we mispell a word or make a minor mistake? Stop being so anal. The point that I was trying to make, and that was obviously lost on you, is that we all make mistakes. You too. BTW, the Al is Al Sharpton.

Your fiend, Bob
