    Gun Buy Back is a Stupid idea from the start.... Someone goes out and commits murder with a stolen gun, takes the gun to a buy back program and gets paid for the murder weapon that is then destroyed by the police getting rid of the evidence of the murder.... And a thief has a place to sell his stolen guns, no questions asked, that he can steal using the list of who has a registered firearm... As our New Sec of State said..."In America we have the right to be Stupid" - John Kerry

    Politicians are selling our freedoms for money, I guess they just think the PEOPLE of this country will do the same. Second Amendment = American's First Freedom.

    Pretty highly skeptical about this one. First off I wouldn't trade a dead cat to see beyonce. You really expect some street thugs to go see her? You have a better chance puting 2Pac's carcass on stage to collect guns than beyonce. And whatever dumbass falls into that trap, if he really is a hardened street criminal, isn't gonna have an epiphany from a beyonce concert. He's likely gonna walk out after the shows over, go a few blocks down, dip into an alley and buy another heater for pretty damn cheap (for those of you that don't know illegal guns are dirt cheap).

    @PoliticalSpice If I were to ponder trading in my firearms, it would have to be at full value. Sorry, but no concert ticket would ever come close. Hey, the free market in firearms today dictate those terms. Six years ago I purchased my AR15 at $1400. I could easily get $3000 for it today. I also have Taurus (now that one would maybe be worth a concert ticket...lol), a 1911, and a Glock 19. Besides the Taurus, I could make money off the other two.

    They call it "assisted tracks". Don't you know how hard it is to dance and sing and wear extravagant outfits?
    Sheesh, so judgmental. What's next, criticism of AutoTune?

    @AntiPorcheria The best is when the track fails and leaves them exposed. IE, Milli Vanilli or Ashley Simpson on Satuday Night Live.

    @Fishbone345 - I just think it's crazy to pay (at any level) to watch someone lip synch a song. Hell, I can do that in the mirror!{I'm too sexy for my shirt...too sexy for my shirt...so sexy it huuuuuuuuuurrrrrts.}

    @AntiPorcheria Agreed. Some of my favorite songs are from live albums by artists I like. I love hearing how they change things up a bit without the studio to make everything sound perfect.

    "Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies" Page 1, by Greg Ridgeway, PhD, Deputy Director, US National Institute of Justice, US Department of Justice: "Gun buybacks ARE INEFFECTIVE as generally implemented. 1) "The buybacks are too small 2. " THE GUNS TURNED IN ARE AT LOW RISK OF EVER BEING USED IN A CRIME 3) Replacement guns are easily acquired. Unless these three points are overcome, a GUN BUYBACK CANNOT BE EFFECTIVE". Page 8 "Assault Weapons (sic) ARE NOT a major contributor to gun crime." "...a complete elemination of assault weapons WOULD NOT have a large impact on gun homicides". "Assault weapons ARE NOT a major contributor to US gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is UNLIKELY TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON GUN VIOLENCE." From the mouth of one of President Obama's highly-placed apparatchiks.

    Ive heard about a gun buy back concert in Houston Texas with Ted Nugent.He is buying the guns himself and donating them to law abiding citizens that can not afford to purchase them at todays inflated prices.What a great idea.

    Yep, if they are supporting gun control, then BOYCOTT anything to do with these clowns. And let their SPONSORS know that also! Hit them where it hurts the most, their pocketbook.

    I can just see the teens buying hot guns for $20 so they can turn it in and get a concert ticket to see whoever she is in concert. Hot guns cost less than clean guns.

    Oh, no, I can't see a teenager trying to trade off a hot gun to a cop just for a concert ticket he wouldn't be able to use from juvie.
  • #19

    @DARSB - Nah. It will be the teen doing the leg work, turning it over to the older "friend" that scores the ticket. But that's the nit-picking details. Anyone that has laid out full price for a weapon sure isn't going to cash it in for a $40 (overpriced) Beyonce Lip-Singalong concert.(Let's see. I spent $500 on my Glock19...and if I give it to dude, I can get a free Beyonce-ish "concert ticket" for some time in the future. WHAT A DEAL!!) Any way you go about it, it's a pretty weak idea.

    Good stolen guns need to be turned in and if the youngin stole the gun just to get into the concert...well guns that aren't properly secured need to be turned in as well..win-win

    @AntiPorcheria Even by your own skeptical logic it's still one less "hot gun" on the street.

    Sounds like a success to me.

    Here's an amusing fact about these "buybacks", most of the guns are either BBguns/airguns/airsoft toys, single shots or .22s that can be bought at stores for less the offered price, a few stolen really cheap old guns, or, and this is the real kicker, they are placed there by the people running the setup!!!!!!!!!! Usually a couple of "scary" looking expensive ones that they have staged for the buyback, to put on top of the pile for photos. It doesn't fool anyone. These programs are pure propaganda and silly.

    I'm warming up to these gun buy backs. There is no law saying you can't sit across the street with a sign offering more money. Some of these people are getting rid of real gems for peanuts. From antiques to modern!

    Is this some kind of disarm the LGTG community thing? Beyonce? Really? LMAO They should try crack cocaine and perhaps SOME stolen guns might get traded in, then they should return those stolen guns to the rightful owners, instead of selling them to the drug cartels like Bloomberg wants.

    Well it is New York they've already prove their level of allegiance to the state. I just don't think beyonce's that big of a draw to the gang bangers

    Although frankly I'd rather shoot myself than go to a Beyonce show, good on these guys for resisting the thug culture that too often dominates hip-hop.

    Hopefully Politix story editors find another source for "news no one cares about " The Caller is not exactly a tier 1 source of anything other than than BS

    @martydotcom Fear not, the Caller was merely acting as a stenographer for real journalists. While this does not compensate for Tucker Carlson's creepy bow ties it is a step up.

    Here's some real news for ya - and some good news at that. A month ago the NRA was bragging that the top 2 contenders for Jesse Jackson Jr's seat in congress were both NRA supporters. The election was held today and both of them lost. The new congresswomen is pro gun safety Robin Kelly. Congrats Ms. Kelly! http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/02/26/1190...

    @martydotcom @DARSB I partly agree with both of you. The Caller is like a lot of sites outside of the traditional/respectable media - some good reporting, some not. When we link to other sites we try to make sure *their* source is reliable, so that we don't pass on misinformation.
