Gun buyback hoax exposed: Police departments actually sell the guns for profit

Gun buyback hoax exposed: Police departments actually sell the guns for profit

Tuesday, June 25, 2013 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) It has become trendy in the liberal/progressive world of anti-Second Amendment advocates to entice gun owners to voluntarily turn in their weapons via dubious "buyback" programs that ostensibly work to reduce the number of firearms on city streets.

Such programs are operated by police departments who, presumably, either keep the weapons that are purchased or destroy them so they don't wind up in the wrong hands. Little did most Americans know that some departments are actually selling those buy-back guns to gun dealers so they can be resold to the general public. Huh?

According to UPI, the St. Charles Police Department, located in the suburbs of Chicago, has sold some of the guns it obtained in a buyback program to two licensed gun dealers in the area. The department's chief of police, James Lamkin, justified the sales as a budget-friendly move.

The deception is

obviously bad, but you should be able to get rid of a gun you don't want anymore and if it gets sold to a law abiding citizens that wants it, that's probably ideal. Seeing unappreciative bumpkins line up to destroy Gandpa's greener he left them in an inheritance for $50 is sickening in it's own regard. I'd rather them be resold. Waste not, want not IMO.
