AnyName: stevarooni: Sell it to a dealer or someone else you're sure isn't a felon or out-of-stater; in the current fervor, you ought to be able to beat $200, easy.

I took it to a dealer and they weren't interested. It's was a complete piece of crap even when new and is worthless. The barrel is heavily rusted and I'd be afraid if it did manage to fire it would hurt the person shooting it.

How the heck do you safely dispose of old guns/ammo?


Toss it off a bridge. Pretend you just performed a service as a hitman for hire and you're ensuring the murder weapon will never be found.

The city netted 1,673 firearms, a four-year low, at the buyback program last May. Authorities recovered 53 assault weapons, 791 handguns, 527 rifles, 302 shotguns and one anti-tank rocket launcher.

Pribar: CthulhuCalling: 'assault weapon' is a political term for an Evil Black Rifle (EBR), and are classified as such entirely on cosmetic criteria. Your AR-15 is NO different from a Ruger 10/22, except that the Ruger has a nice, non-threatening wooden stock.

The Rugers and M1A style rifles, despite being "legitimate sporting rifles" under almost any states "assault weapon" laws are actually more dangerous than any of the evil black rifles that hysterical people like Wayne 985 want to ban because of how easy they are to actually jury rig into a real assault weapon...

Whats the purpose of using string to tie the action open? seems to be a stupid way to make a gun lock, anyone can cut it and use the gun.

Pribar: so in reality all you are interested in is getting rid of something that looks scary?


If the thing is in good shape and from a reputable manufacturer, I'll take it out of his life and give it a good home. I'll take it outside, clean it, lube it and let it spend time with others of its own kind.

Wayne 985: Benjamin Orr: So you just think that civilians shouldn't have rifles?

Bolt-action is fine.


What if I need to shoot 30 deer in rapid succession??

So no lever action rifles either?


Sure. Bolt-action, lever-action, pump-action. I'm fine with those.

Wayne 985: Dimensio: Civilian-marketed AR-15 rifles do not feature select-fire capability and thus by definition cannot be classified as "assault rifles".

By that rationale, the Bushmaster used in Sandy Hook wasn't an assault rifle.


For the record, if you prefer, I'll use the term "assault weapon", but we all know what I'm talking about.

Them guys are morons. Gun buy-backs are a joke. I work selling firearms and nothing you took in, at least in the video you showed was worth more than $50 on the market. Or it was gutted of useful parts.
We did this in Rockford, IL 15 years ago. We gutted every known part from the firearms that made it a gun and they still bought them.

We spelled out "JOKE" with the vouchers.

Cali is the only state worse than Illinois in the laughing stock of this nation.

Man, I HATE articles that don't give us more details. Because WHO THE F*CK had an anti-tank rocket launcher and what did the cops say/do/think when someone hauled that out of the trunk of his car?
