Great, I can get rid of some of those old guns I've collected over the years and take the money to buy some new ones.

Adding $200 million to the final compromise on the fiscal cliff could remove as many as one million guns from our streets.
Not too many firearms are worth less than $200.

And how is "sucess" gauged. I would suppose by the fact that a politician decided to spend money and someone took the money. Not by the fact that it reduced criminal behavior with a gun.

I don't know if there is enough profit margin for me to go out and purchase Hi Points to sell to them. Now, if they boosted it up to $400, I think I could make it work.

You know, that really is a good idea.

If you're desperate enough to sell your gun for damn near nothing, you're probably poor. Poor people commit the majority of violent crimes.

Disarm the poor!

well, aint that a turn.
Some years ago the poor people were denied having "saturday night specials" because they were cheap and the elite thought they could save poor peoples lives if they banned them. Now the poor are even poorer but have nicer guns and the elite still doesnt like that.
Some people are just never satisfied!

The really really sad thing is the confirmation that this person really is clueless and an idiot. Its bad enough when one suspects something but when its confirmed, it always seems to be worse.

What a jackass! Use my tax money against me the tax payer. Time to just stop paying taxes or reporting income. I'm credit free and can get real poor real quick. What if a few million taxpayers did that?

Yeah, but none of mine are for sale.

If the politicians really want to do something that will have true effect on gun crimes, they need to appropriate the funds for more jail/prison cells and then start prosecuting the criminals who commiting guns crimes.

No law will work unless it has "teeth" and under this Administration prosecution of gun crimes are down.

Just recently in Detroit, an ex-con facing charged for carrying a concealed weapon had the charges dropped because the arresting officer failed to appear in court!
Perhaps the officer had good reasons for not appearing, but this is insane, to just let this guy walk, and as we all know, he WILL come back again!

You have stumbled on the reason why tax evaders are modern patriots.
