Anyone Available on Jan 19th?

Across the country, communities have held gun buy back programs in the wake of the Connecticut tragedy. Los Angeles recently collected 2,037 guns, including a grenade launcher.

Buchanan and a group of volunteers are putting together Dallas’ first since the tragedy, which is designed for gun owners who no longer want weapons but don’t know what to do with them.

“We need to make communities and families safer and we try to do it one gun at a time,” he said.

It’s scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19 outside The Stew Pot at 1822 Young Street. Organizers will pay $50 cash for working handguns and rifles and $200 for semi-automatic assault rifles.

Thinking about going over and standing around outside of the property — just to observe of course.
And if anyone wonders why I have a handful of cash, I might talk to them about the guns they planned to turn in.

Oh and that ‘grenade launcher’?   It appears to be an empty AT-4 training device. Nice way to be truthful there L.A. police department.

    Why do they always do these things when I’m not available?. I have a crappy old Hi Point that my grandfather WECSOGed into a mess that I’ve been waiting for one of these to come around near me. Rats.

    Shepherd K,

    I’d be interested in that Hi Point if you want to get rid of it.

    James, I misspoke earlier. It’s actually a High Standard Duramatic .22 pistol. Email me at krerick at gmail dot com if you’re interested and I will send pics.

    Crap. Can’t do it. Belle and I are hosting a young lady and her husband, first time shooters, at our favorite pistol range on the 20th. She happens to be one of my employees. I need to be on my game.
    Otherwise I’d make the drive to be there.
