There is a pseudo quote which says something like “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome.”
—At West Baltimore gun buyback, leaders hope to lower city firearms supply: ‘Launch a place of hope’, Yahoo News, (last visited Aug. 7, 2023)
The spokesperson for the event claimed that they purchased 356 firearms. Only 17 were semiautomatic. The reality is much more likely that they are claiming 17 semiautomatic rifles. We are watching in real time as the left warps’ language. In 5 years we will be hearing about “sniper rifles”, which will mean any bolt action rifle. Or any rifle with an optic on it.
The claim is that by buying these firearms, they are removing these guns from the criminal element. Jill is talking shit, she is suggesting that it is FFLs that are the causing the problems. We know that isn’t the case.
What she really wants to say but is too much of a coward to say is “The criminal animals have taken over our city. Our cops aren’t willing to put their lives on the line to arrest them when the politicians are going to release them.”
I can remember an often quoted line from a cop show, “It isn’t worth arresting him. He’ll be out before I finish writing up the paperwork.”
These insane people keep trying to “prevent violence.” The only thing they ever seem to try is disarming people.
Meanwhile, this “buy back” was busy ripping off older people that buy into the bs.
So there you have it, instead of sending these people to an FFL where they would get reasonable dollars for the firearms. These people under paid for the firearms and then handed them to the police to be????, destroyed?
