[Ed. – Man’s got a point. Ironically, California voters last year made it a felony again to possess a stolen firearm, after the stupidity of possession being dropped to a misdemeanor in 2014. San Francisco’s buyback program doesn’t just ensure that you can walk away from a felony rap; it gives you an incentive to commit the felony by paying you to do it.]
[M]ost buyback programs want to make sure you can’t use what they’re giving you to buy more guns, so they tend to give you gift cards. … Apparently, they think everyone who attends a buyback needs the money to eat or something.
The San Francisco program goes in a very different direction. They’re offering cold, hard cash.
United Playaz is holding the gun buyback on Saturday, Dec. 16 from 8 a.m. to noon at 1038 Howard St. Handguns will go for $100 and assault weapons for $200 — all cash and no questions asked.
[T]his seems like a hell of a way to pawn stolen firearms. You steal some guns, take them to this buyback, get some cash, then walk away.
