LowbrowDeluxe: Also, I'd like to note that I'm amused that the GUN PAUL! crowd has actually become so shrill and intrusive as to surpass the Legalize Weed, Man! group and in fact, hijack weed threads even.


Quick, someone mention breastfeeding or circumcision, just to see if it can all be done in one thread!

jso2897: An inherently defective firearm is dangerous in a myriad of different ways, and people shouldn't have them around.


It is, but if  people cared about such things they they'd either take care of their guns or visit a gun shop and buy a new weapon when the old one starts looking haggard. They can also sell or dispose of their old hardware, through the gun shop.
The store owner is a better judge of what a gun is worth than some do-goody in a buyback. He can sort the valuables from the trash and it costs me nothing.
They shouldn't have buybacks, they should have "gun store" and "gun safety" awareness days.

My question to you is if the government should be responsibility to save you from your poor judgement?
I say it isn't.  If you've got a neglected or non firing weapon and you try to bluff a crook, its on  your own head if they call that bluff.

Wouldn't it be better to spend the "collect broken guns" money on preventing crime to begin with?
That way fewer people have to bluff, fewer get away with robbing, no one has to waste money on scrap metal and everyone keeps their rights.

We all win and no longer have to gamble with public safety.

/Similar argument for drug paraphernalia.
/Treat the addiction and no one will want the pipes.
/No need for anti-drug campaigns, no need for these pointless displays.

Just wondering, do kids even know how to roll these days?

True story - I learned how to roll from Frank Zappa's naked one armed roadie in a seedy Hollywood hotel room in the 70's. Well, he wasn't completely naked, he was wearing an American flag.
I realize not everyone may have grown up with my advantages.

If guns that were defective, or in the hands of the unfit could only harm the user, maybe - but probably not. But as a general principle, it fails to meet my standard of common sense. Should the government refrain from "protecting me from myself" by forbidding me to drive an automobile with defective brakes, or steering? Should it refrain from forbidding me to build a dangerous, defective house?
Civilization is here. Our time in the jungles and the frontier is history. I am all in favor of gun rights - but no civilized society can hold any right to be absolute and unconditional, and no civilized society does.
That's reality - and arguments attempting to circumvent that reality are futile, and will fail.
And frankly, Waysouth - if you are one of those who insists that there can be no form of gun control, and that ant attempt to regulate the use of these potentially dangerous tools is an impermissable step onto some imaginary "slippery slope", you are one of the extremists at the far ends of the debate that I don't waste any more time talking to than I do the gun-grabber who thinks everyone's guns should be taken away.

Naw, it's cool - I live in Cali, and had a prescription until lately. Right now I am "land poor", and will be pretty broke for a year or two - after which I will be fine. But right now, I'm probably better off out hustling money than sitting around blazing up.

If you own a house or a car, but fail to maintain them, you can be sued or fined for whatever unintentional damages result.
If the government says "hey, I'll give you cash for that clunker because its for the good of us all!", What you have is the makings of a bad idea. People who probably shouldn't drive won't make good on money given to them for a wreck. They should dispose of it on their own dime.

For the good of us all I accept that the government should run a PSA to remind you that machines need to be kept responsibly. Teach a child to avoid playing with dangerous things and you'll save their lives more reliably than by trying to collect all the dangerous things.
...but paying people for broken things is only going to waste cash that could have been better spent elsewhere.

I know that an increase in cops, education, or other services will create a known benefit. I am not so sure that a buy back does anything good.
Why pay for an unknown activity when a known activity gives me more of what I want?

"Dear america: Dispose of your gun at the gun store." Is free advice and I can spend the savings on more cop man hours, proven to reduce crime.

Buybacks do have a known benefit - they take guns off the street that are defective, and very often in the hands of the unfit. They also cost little, and violate no ones rights.
But I have to be honest at this point -  I cannot engage in an intelligent dialogue with every single person who is in this debate.  I can't dialogue with extremists.
By contrasting example, the other day I attempted to engage my elected representative Diane Feinstein in a discussion about her support of the ridiculous "assault weapons" ban. Whoever responded to me during the exchange never responded to any actual thing I said - the law was anti-gun, that made it good, and if I didn't like it I was naive and foolish. It was like talking to a wall. A wall that looks remarkably similar to the wall you throw up when anyone suggests ANY form of gun control or amelioration.
The time I spent talking to her was wasted time. How much time should I waste talking to you?

jso2897: way south: squibbits: Wait until Dianne Frankenstein's gang does it with guns... knowing how stupid they are, they will leave some of the guns loaded with rounds in the chambers.

Gun banners do these kinds of stunts all the time.
Its their way of saying "look at me, I can destroy peoples property while doing nothing to solve their problems!".

If it all works out the same, people who make pipes are the only ones who profit.

I used to think those gun buy-backs were total bullshiat, until I got a look at most of the guns they get and destroy. A whole lot of them are broken, dangerous relics that you, I, or any responsible gun owner would destroy too. I took an old, broken shotgun to one a few years ago, and saw heaps and piles of broken, crap hardware - and I am really glad that most of THOSE guns are off the street.


OT, but gun buy backs are a great way to dump a gun used in a murder, too.

Meh. I don't think they are a huge deal, one way or the other. Frankly, anyone who gets upset about them needs a better hobby.
I'm tired of the hysterical extremists. This issue will not be decided by the Diane Feinsteins and Wayne LaPierres of the world. It will be decided by the rational 75% whose views lie somewhere in the middle ground - by grownups who are capable of reason and compromise.

Nothing else better to do except bother people that sit mostly and buy food supporting the local economy that pay taxes that pay the police?

cops took down a granny with ALS. 

This is them turning up their side of the war, happened in every state that's legalized.. The cops raise the bar right

having enough harmless people to arrest and harass.

The original meaning of 'dope' is cure all.  Boron and arsenic are dopants for silicon.  They provide the charge-carriers that allow it to conduct.  The use of the term to refer to recreationals is sardonic rather than specific.

You are free to spend your Internets as you please, No ones paying for our time here.

I've never shied away from being called an extremist for my views on guns. But it's not that I believe everyone should be armed, it's just a simple fact that they will be if they choose.
Knowing that it is their choice, there is no reason we should pay for the upkeep, replacement, or disposal of anyones gun. You are responsible for your things. You are free to turn weapons in to the police or the pawn shop at anytime.
We shouldn't have to pay a cash reward to put on a display like in tfa.
That sort of thing is is to the benefit of a few politicians, not to the community.
