Philly City Council Goes Full Retard

The Philadelphia City Council is giving wasting taxpayer money for community groups who are begging citizens to turn in their firearms.

Philadelphia is seeing an increase in shootings so the far-left City Council and police organized a ‘home gun-check campaign’ urging residents to turn in their firearms. Makes sense.

Yes, because every Philadelphian will disarm themselves while the thugs are armed to the teeth.

Voluntary gun buyback programs and other programs aimed at urging residents to voluntarily turn in their firearms would only increase violence because it keeps criminals armed and disarms law abiding citizens.

As of yesterday, the city logged 264 homicides for 2020, a 28% increase over this time last year.

Far left “community groups” with backing from city officials and police are distributing flyers which reads “save a life, turn in a gun.”

Yeah, that’ll work. The left has a vested interest in confiscating the firearms of law-abiding citizens. These community groups will likely knock on doors in the nicer parts of town, but you can be damned sure they won’t lecture people in the hood.

“Get those guns, run that room, see what’s in there. Find out what’s being hidden in your house. Take it out and turn it in,” City Councilmember Cindy Bass said.

First of all, Cindy Bass is the most anti-police councilperson in the city. She despises police, and couldn’t wait to vote to defund the department. Second, she’s not terribly bright. In fact, she’s an outright dullard. Third, what West Philly parent is going to search the room of their thug son and turn in his gun(s) to the police. It’s a sure way to get yourself killed.

Oh, and for the record, I’ve been involved with processing Buy Back guns, and 99.9% of the firearms turned are rusted, missing parts, or something no more lethal than a Derringer. The program is always an absolute farce.

This is a stupid idea, even for Philadelphia.

  1. I took advantage of one of those programs in Sacramento one year. I had a .22 short revolver, with peeling chrome, warped plastic grips -basically a starter pistol, that I had acquired as part of a larger trade. I was strapped for cash that year and got more money than I could have gotten at a pawn shop (they didn’t want it), and I needed cash to get my daughter a Christmas present.

    As far as preventing crime? Not so much.

  2. Some of my friends have “junk boxes” of worn out parts they’ve saved from firearm repairs. I’ve seen some really hilarious “guns” made from these mismatched, worn out, totally unusable parts. They were “turned in” on buy-back programs. The money my buddies collected was spent on new or used in good condition firearms and ammo.

    A win-win deal. A “dangerous” weapon was taken off the streets, a liberal has a feel good orgasm, and a 2A supporter made some money.

  3. Buy back is one of the more orwellian phrases in today’s world.

    I like it when there’s an impromptu gun show outside the “buy back” location where people give more than $100 for grandpa’s guns.
    I’ll give you $800 for that Garand, they’re giving you $100 inside.

  4. Mike – It prevents nothing. You get garbage pistols and the council can say they’re making a difference.

    TX Nick – It’s win-freakin-win!

    Veeshir – I’ve seen officers offer to buy a gun from an owner instead of turning it in; especially when it was in great condition. They set up a time to meet at the gun store, and the owner gets actual money while the officer gets a great gun.
