I know who is trying to take away our guns

A gun buy-back program continues in Wilkes-Barre PA where Police have set up a pilot program funded by a $10,000 REPUBLICAN federal grant.

When a citizen 'surrenders' a rife or shotgun, the person gets a WAL-MART $50 gift certificate. For a handgun it is $75.00.

So, I guess the democrats don't want to sieze 'our' guns, its the republicans and wal-mart... 'Course, anybody with a lick of sense would understand that the federal government is so inept at practically doing anything that this buy back is smarter...

Hell, there's no need for anybody to take away weapons. Wave some wal-mart funny money in front of them and they start lactating and do whatever is asked. Price check on aisle 3....

Thats total B.S. and you know it. Prove it. Its the democrats who have driven every gun grab regulation that has been presented.

Heck, I think that's the best possible way to get privately owned guns. Its voluntary and folks that don't want their guns get some money. Don't want to sell? Well, then don't sell. Keep your SKS or whatever, who cares?

I fail to see a problem here. Perhaps ya'll can help me?

The problem is its NOT a republican funded program.............he's creating a inflamitory thread thats based on lies. Next thing he's going to say the NRA is actually behind it. Then space aliens are visiting him at night telling him things.

Attempting to deny American citizens their constitutional rights is the cornerstone of the Democratic party, Or more like it a good portion of them.

THe people who advocate denying anyones second amendment rights better be ready to lose their first amendment rights because that follows soon after.

I think the gentleman protests too much...

I call your attention to the fact that the gov't is controlled by the REPUBLICANS, it is a FEDERALLY funded pilot program and you can see for yourself at the

WNEP 16 web site, 6pm local news. ITs the fourth story after Doubling fines for speeding along I-81, a drunk's perp walk, a killer's perp walk, 2 robberies. Jon Meyer is the reporter. I think that's been proven now, ok. You can't think this stuff up, you know, its just too wierd.

Man, you are just tooooo delusional caught up in all the right wing propaganda...

BYI, in the business I'm in I carry a 9mm Browning and 32 Beretta mouser. I like guns and democrats.

Couple a weeks ago a buddy and I tooled out to Camp Perry to pick up some M1's and M1903 Springfields. We came back with 2000 rounds of 30-06 and 4 weapons. THe gov't is selling them to citizens. Even to democrats like me...

So what?

If it's the Republicans, good for them. If they don't like guns in Wilkes Barre (or whatever) then the offer to buy them is a good one. Same if its Demos or Libertarians or freaking Elks Club. Its an offer, not an order.

Shoot, if somebody offers me the right price, I'd sell the ol' hogleg without looking back. $75 ain't even close (But I'd consider letter my Red Rider go for that.)

Give it a rest.

So prove its a program proposed and supported EXCLUSIVELY by republicans...........................

And is this a gun buyback targeted at the inner city crime area to get hot guns off the street?

And Just because its a republican majority use common sense, it doesn't make it a republican bill. you only need a few left leaning republicans to agree to it.

It can be an overwelming Democrat bill. You can't accuse the Republicans for running the NRA and then try to accuse them of being gun grabbers.

The recently expired (thank god) gun ban was signed buy Clinton, not Bush.

Think any gun laws will keep criminals from getting guns, think again. Cocain and Heroin get smuggled by the tons.......so could guns.

Like Botnst said, chill out, this was a post with tongue firmly in cheek. It was made to show the ridiculous silly things we americans get ourselves into. Fear and Paranoia are the main tools of the agitprop to keep the masses under control.

None of this c#ap matters in the long run. we're all dead in the long run...

Hey, I don't care who said what or why.

If they want to melt them all into a giant phallus and dance about it nekkid wearing garlands of flowers in May, that's fine with me.

If somebody thinks expunging the planet of .32 pistols is going to cure cancer and reveal the face of god, that's fine with me, too. Just don't force me to go along.

I don't understand why its so upsetting or important whether its this party or that. Its an offer, freely given. Isn't that just about as wonderful a thing as a government can do--noncoercive policy?

The issue its that its an offer, not an order.

So its fine to poke jabs at republicans, but not Democrats?

personally I would like the Webmaster to prohibit politically based threads altogether.....then these issues would not be issues.

Heck, sounds to me like the Republican Party is subsidising a weaponry upgrade for these folks. And if that's wrong, I don't want to be right

Like I said, when they outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.....

Criminals can import guns the same way they import drugs............
