SO, AFTER Arizona passes a no-destroy, gun buy-back law…

PHOENIX — Over the next three Saturdays, Phoenix will be hosting the largest gun buyback program in the city’s history.

On Monday, Gov. Jan Brewer signed a law that keeps cities from destroying guns collected during buy-backs but that law doesn’t take effect until 90 days after the current legislative session ends. Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos said guns turned over in the Phoenix events will be melted down.

“We will check the guns to see if they’ve been stolen or used in the crime and then destroy them within this 90-day period.”

Martos said the city initially intended to offer gift cards for people turning in high-capacity magazines but that has been scrapped to allow the bulk of the gift cards to be used on firearms.

“We would prefer that people bringing in the firearms have them in the glovebox or trunk or bed of a pickup and unloaded. We don’t want people approaching these events with guns in their hands.”

The buy-backs will take place at the following locations:

• Southminster Presbyterian Church, 1923 E. Broadway Rd.
• Betania Presbyterian Church, 2811 N. 39th Ave.
• Sunnyslope Mennonite Church, 9835 N. Seventh St.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or until the city runs out of gift cards.

The city is giving away $100 gift cards to AJ’s, Basha’s or Food City for handguns and shotguns and $200 for semi-automatic assault rifles.

PS – AJ’s is a high-end yuppie market, with nice stuff.  A $100 gift card will get you some arugula and a large T-bone.  All three markets are owned by the same liberal family, whose patriarch just passed away.  Basha’s is middle-class, Food City for the underclass.

  1. Nobody has ever been able to explain how you “buy back” something you never owned in the first place. It’s a shame Phoenix is run by liberal idiot pisswits.

  3. Sounds like a good place to hang out with a sign saying “Fair Price for Good Guns”.
    Pass on the Lorcins, Ravens, etc. and buy up all the pinned/recessed Smiths & 1911s you can afford. :)
    Your only competition is a $100 gift card.

  4. What KM said. They did that in Seattle a few months ago, and it turned into a mobile gun bidding contest, with some guys offering free cookies or donuts if a line forms while you wait.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
