    We should make California secede from the union!! Then all the gun Nazis can move to the gun free utopia! Feinstein can be their President!

    My understanding is that the two rocket launchers in the LA buyback had been rendered impotent, just like the two Dustin has the links for.

    Their description states “It has been demilled and cannot be made active ever again. It is strictly a display piece…”

    The AT-4 MAW rocket launcher and the M-72 LAW launcher are one time fire weapons. In fact, the tube is not classified as a weapon, which is why they turn up in military collector swap fests and surplus stores. The missile, not the tube, is the weapon. This whole report is, basically, a poisonous lie to create hysteria. What else do you expect from CNN?

    Now as to the gun buybacks, we now are seeing a taxpayer funded fencing operation where the government purchases firearms for a fraction of their real value. There is nothing to stop thieves from steeling guns and then fencing them through the government gun buy back. The other major source of gun buybacks that my investigation has turned up is disgruntled spouses selling the other spouse’s weapon as an act of revenge.

    It’s too bad ignorant people keep voting against there own best interest here in California. This state is run by government unions who elect democrats who will get them more money and benefits for themselves. There are probably more gun owners and NRA members in California than most states, except Texas of course. Some of the shooting sports originated here and are leaving because of the abusive laws. I suspect some of those weapons I have seen them display from this recent buy back are bogus. I believe the police departments have gotten these from there own evidence rooms and put them on display. No one, criminal or otherwise would trade in those uzis and ar’s worth several hundred to over a thousand dollars for a gift certificate up to 200$ to a grocery store.

    Duh! How many criminals showed up to turn in their guns? Most of these guns were relics and inoperative. An assault weapon is a device that is fully automatic. They have also been banned since 1934. I have never seen one go for less than 20 Grand at a trade show or private buy. What makes you think someone will just turn over $25 grand for the good cause. Kalifornistania has been out of control for the last 20 years. They are dead broke and folks are bailing by the thousands daily.

      “An assault weapon is a device that is fully automatic’

      Wrong. An “assault weapon” is a bogus phrase made up by gun grabbers, and used by the left wing media so much it’s everywhere. In fact, “assault rifle” became more popular after the gun control groups picked it up. It,s just a rifle. And not a “device”. They don’t need any help spreading there propaganda.
