The city of Worcester, Massachusetts is asking citizens to bring their weapons to the police department next weekend as part of the city's annual "Goods for Guns Buyback Program." In return for the guns, the city will offer gift certificates, and - a free flu shot.

Telegram.com reports:

"City residents, or residents of any other community, may bring their unwanted weapons, unloaded and wrapped in a bag, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday to the Worcester Police headquarters in Lincoln Square, or from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 8 to the Worcester Division of Public Health, 25 Meade St."

This really is the twilight

This really is the twilight zone.

The Nashville police department just did the same thing here...

"Give us your gun for a $25 gift card to Dollar General."

The only positive is that they ended up only getting around 100 suckers to give up there firearms.

The Red Coats are coming!

They're

not too smart. I guess they want to have a more dangerous city.

Oh, they're smart. As you

Oh, they're smart. As you said, fewer citizens owning guns, more crime.

More crime, therefore continued police jobs, the taking of your income to continue their work, from applying (outrageous) fees for nonsense identified as infractions to harming you because of their do-now-might-think-later approach, against you.

Fewer gun owning citizens, continued statists -- led by those who corrall, the police -- extorting and abusing the citizen, you.

I'm not in the right area

I hope this happens in my area so I can stand on the sidewalk with a "Will give you $50 in exchange for unwanted weapons" sign.

I don't feel nearly as bad

I don't feel nearly as bad now, I was thinking the same thing

There you go! Free market!

There you go! Free market! Let the competition for gun buying begin! That's the spirit, bronko!

I know little about guns, but isn't buying a gun for $50 unheard of? More surprising, isn't it galling from the gun seller's view that he'd be asked for his gun for $25?? Moving from great surprise, I think, to shock is the prospective gun buyer would offer a gun owner a gift card -- a GIFT CARD! LOL -- for his gun. Hilarity, stupidity and corruption in one promotion! Too freaking much. LOL.

These drives come up this time of year and they're nationwide, aren't they? Everyone, go compete against the police for peoples' guns! Guns for cheap!
