Seattle Gun Buy Back Program Goes Awry When Angry Gun Owners Show Up
I love it when a plan comes together. I have no idea what side of the "gun control" issue you are on and frankly, I don't care. I don't mean that to sound harsh but I live in a world of common sense and my common sense tells me that when all the good people are unarmed, it will be a very bad thing. Well, unless all the criminals agree to follow the rules.
Seattle held their first gun buy back program since the early 90's but local citizens had a message of their own to share.
Dozens showed up with their own handmade signs offering hard, cold cash instead of gift cards the Seattle police department was offering. These private citizens decided to utilize the event and used a so-called "gun show loophole", which allows guns to be sold without a background check on site. So that's what they did. Handmade signs, lots of cash in their pockets and even enticed gun owners with free cookies and donuts.
It's safe to say that a lot of the weapons that were destined to be melted down and turned into rebar made it back into the hands of tax paying American's who hold true to the Second Amendment.
When I see many Sheriff's all across the country saying they will not be enforcing anything on a Federal level concerning the new changes to the 2nd Amendment this can only get worse.
I also find it amazing that these politicians trying to trash the 2nd Amendment seem oblivious to the 27th Amendment while doing it.
Not sure what the 27th Amendment is? Oh, that is a little thing that "Prevents laws affecting Congressional salary from taking effect until the beginning of the next session of Congress." Yes, it was basically put into place to make sure Congress didn't just give themselves a pay raise whenever they wanted. There is criteria that has to be met first, which has never happened.
That's another story for another day.
