"There is a 68% rise in gun violence. There are more criminals in society (they must just "evolve" from pigeons or ducks) and they are committing more violence. Therefore, all you good citizens who are not committing crimes ought to turn your guns in so you can't protect yourselves from the criminals who will certainly not turn their guns in."
What was this "free gift" that the first 1000 who turned in their guns received? a coupon for 25% their cemetery plot and funeral costs?
Did this police chief or whoever made this announcement LIE? According to the article at the link below, the rise in crime that was claimed to spur this turn in of guns by law-abiding citizens, is not true, but that gun violence in that town was actually DECREASING.
This police chief should be fired and arrested.
Was it not some town in NC a few years ago which passed an ordinance that every household was REQUIRED to have a gun?
Terrorism is up. More violent Muslims are being imported and are breeding. Are those muslims going to turn in their explosives, knives, guns?

Today I Placed my S & W .357 revolver on the table right next to my front door. I left 6 cartridges beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.
While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor across the street boy mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the "stop" sign near the front of my house.
After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was quietly sitting there, right where I had left it. It had not moved itself outside. It had not killed anyone Certainly, even with the Numerous opportunities it had presented to do that. In fact, it had not even loaded itself.
Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and the media about how dangerous guns are and How They kill people. Either the media is wrong or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in the world.
The United States is 3rd in Murders Throughout The World. But if you take out just 4 'left-wing' cities: Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC and New Orleans -- the United States is 4th from the bottom, in the ENTIRE World, for Murders.
These 4 Cities are controlled by Democrats. They also have The Toughest Gun Control Laws in the USA.
It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data, right?
Well, I'm off to check on my spoons. I hear they 're making people fat.
