Fuck your buyback program, pal.

Police officers in Seattle, Washington held their first gun buyback program in 20 years this weekend, underneath interstate 5,  and soon found that private gun collectors were working the large crowd as little makeshift gun showsbegan dotting the parking lot and sidewalks. Some even had “cash for guns” signs prominently displayed.
Police stood in awe as gun enthusiasts and collectors waved wads of cash for the guns being held by those standing in line for the buyback program.
People that had arrived to trade in their weapons for $100 or $200 BuyBack gift cards($100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and $200 for assault weapons) soon realized that gun collectors were there and paying top dollar for collectible firearms. So, as the line for the chump cards got longer and longer people began to jump ship and head over to the dealers.
MORE and it gets funnier.
Thanks to Patrick

That was a great idea- turn a buyback program into a gun show! Wish I would've thought a of it.

Buy backs don't work. All the research indicates that this is useless but that doesn't stop the politically correct police chiefs from pissing away funds that could be used for something actually useful. I've seen two of these in my jurisdiction and not a one has accomplished anything.
