    At least 10 guns turned in to Project RIGHT during the city's gun-buyback program were brought in by wives or girlfriends of men recently jailed for violent or serious offenses, said the organization's executive director.

    "Officials at the press conference recounted the story of a young grandmother who went door-to-door in her apartment complex asking residents if they had guns to drop off. The woman collected five guns and turned them in, they said."

    I wonder how trustworthy I look..."Hi I'm here for the get guns off the street collection, do you have any you would like to get off the street? *coughandintomysafecough*"

    The 1,000 guns, Menino said, represented “1,000 potential lives that were saved."





    Because each gun is only capable of taking 1 life. :ugh2:

    rofl, I can imagine little old granny given a throwaway that was used in a murder by another tenant, then little old granny ends up sprawled on the concrete with cops cuffing her when she tries to turn it in.

    So taking away the guns didn't save actual lives, but only potential lives?

    so 1% of the firearms brought in were "brought in by wives of men recently jailed for serious violent crimes"

    thats a pretty amazing statistic there

    The weapons not linked to crimes will be melted and made into sewer caps.

    WOW. A $2000 sewer cap. You guys ROCK! :ugh2:


    Goslin said, but he added that “none so far appear to be linked to homicides.”

    $130,000 well spent! :bigthumb::mamoru:



    The guns will be examined to determine whether they were used in a crime, he said. The weapons not linked to crimes will be melted and made into sewer caps.


    Doesnt this mean that they will be destroying the guns that dont desereve this kind of abuse, and keeping the guns around that have been used to kill, and are most probably the kind of a gun a person would use to kill, and leave them for a crooked cop to stel and sell to a guy illegally? :confused: :liberals: :greddy:

    Maybe ALL of the other 99% were brought in by criminals? :dunno:

    If that ever happens where I live, Im buying one of those shitty $60 revolvers from another post and selling it for a $140 profit to a dumbass behind a desk :bigthumb:


    EDIT: It would be pretty amazing if you can bring in more than one gun and be paid the same amount for each one. I bring in 4 ($50) guns, and I got myself a $200 AR15. :eek3:
