    One guy shows up with 22 handguns in his trunk and takes $50-100 each for them? :upeyes: And I'm sure there is a no questions asked policy that goes with this process. See, that's how libs think. It's ok to let a known criminal/murderer walk away...with cash in hand, tax payer cash BTW, just to have that warm fuzzy feeling knowing that there's one less gun on the street. :upeyes: Fools. I wonder how many of those guns were stolen from law abiding citizens? How many were used in crimes? How many used in murders? How many ex-felons were paid to hand over a gun they they couldn't legally posess? The bad guys laugh at this BS. They just got paid to hand over a gun that could convict them with zero consiquences. What a joke. It's hard to fathom that the mayor's of three of the biggest cities in this country (New York, L.A. and Chicago) are three of the biggest bafoons out there.

    Yeah, Villaraigosa is a typical big city, liberal jerk. Anti gun to the core but accomplishes nothing in terms of making the city safer.

    Wow, more than 1670 guns in a city the size of LA, that's a pitiful drop in the bucket and how many of them were inoperable?

    $200 for a working AR, what a joke, if it was in good shape they could have made a big profit on it.

    Anti gun clowns. Don :upeyes:

    I know a couple of folks who have gone to these events and watched what came in. From what I am told, lots of bb guns, pellet guns, broken guns, etc., are brought in. Occasionaly, old heirloom guns that bolonged to someone's deceased family member come in.

    If we had them in my city, I would probably go by and see what I could pick up. Hell, I have a bunch of gift cards from Christmas. I'll gladly trade a McDonalds gift card for your deceased father/husband/crazy uncle's gun that you inherited and don't want anymore. Hell, bring me an M1 Garand and I'll throw in a trip to the nearest McDonald's and buy you a McRib. Bring me a nice old pistol like a 1911, Luger, etc., and I'll upsize it to a value meal.

    It is because unemployment is so rampant there this is the only way they can make a few bucks.

    Heck, a trunk full of liquor might make bargaining even easier

    I can't wait for the next one to come to CT. I have a horrible old rusty Mossberg bolt shotgun that's missing the magazine and a crappy old $5 revolver. I can get $100 for those two and I'll turn right around and buy ammo or magazines.
