Gun Owners Accept State Bribes In Exchange For Weapons, Surrender Their Guns

I’m sure that robbers, rapists, murderers, drug dealers, gang members and the criminally insane were the first in line to surrender their weapons, right?   Sleep well, gullible citizens.

Becket Adams reports at The Blaze:

Days after a deadly shooting in Newton, Conn., that left 26 people dead, including 20 children, a state-sponsored cash-for-guns program held on Friday and Saturday in Camden, N.J., one of America’s deadliest cities, brought in 1,137 guns, easily beating 2009′s previous record of 700.

“A lot of people said they don’t want the guns around the house now,” state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa said Tuesday as he announced the results of the buyback program.

“Let me be clear,” Chiesa added, “I am not suggesting that a buyback such as this could have prevented the shooting in Newtown, which was a cowardly act, nor am I suggesting that gun buybacks are some sort of magic solution to the complex and multi-faceted problem of violence in our society.”

“But we have to keep forging ahead using all of the strategies at our disposal.”

In other words, “We admit this really doesn’t work.  But hey, it’s not supposed to.  We just want to take away your guns.”  The same kinds of programs are being used in San Francisco and are being scheduled around the country.

Don’t these people realize that they’re being bribed with their OWN TAX MONEY?   That the money for these “buy-back” programs will eventually be taken out of their paychecks?

Also, how many of these “volunteers” were probably turning in stolen weapons for the drug money?   In addition, these programs are awash with opportunists who scan the crowds, offering cash for guns they know are valuable and disposing of junk to the state for a taxpayer-funded profit.   Who can blame them, when the state provides such an incentive?

As for the citizens stupid enough to take a government “IOU” in exchange for anything, they probably shouldn’t own a gun anyway.

Meredith Jessup at The Blaze opines:

I think it’s wrong to use taxpayer dollars to compel people to give up their guns.  The constitutional right to keep and bear arms shouldn’t be for sale and the government shouldn’t be in the business of paying people to opt out.

Thankfully, not every American is taking the bait.  In fact, some are doing just the opposite.
