This Is How You Do It!

People that had arrived to trade in their weapons for $100 or $200 BuyBack gift cards($100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and $200 for assault weapons) soon realized that gun collectors were there and paying top dollar for collectible firearms. So, as the line for the chump cards got longer and longer people began to jump ship and head over to the dealers.

Kicker?  Besides the head cop and mayor whining about guns going from folks who don’t understand and want them and thus might be careless with them to people who like guns, they’re mumbling about how they’ll check to see if any of the weapons they bought were stolen.

So…after the little kabuki is done and people have already gotten their cards, they’re going to check that they weren’t buying stolen goods.  Or murder weapons, perhaps?  Nah…nobody would use a program where the entire point is the weapon will be destroyed to get rid of a murder weapon!

  1. A fine example of economics in action. Wonder if it’s possible to assemble something that’s legally an “assault weapon” for less than $200.

    1. Given the standards they’ve been showing– the things that are basically shell casings for rocket launchers are paid top dollar for and paraded around as “rocket launchers”– I wouldn’t be surprised if spray-painting a BB-gun with a plastic resin and taping a plastic knife to the end would pass.

      1. too bad i live 1200 miles away. i see real opportunity there, to make some cash and increase my cache…
        one more reason why i love seattle (the PNW actually). i need to visit again soon.
