There are good things about Florida, but Miami is Obama-Loving Territory, which is why they do stupid things like this:
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – In its continuing effort to reduce gun violence, the City of Miami Police Department is holding a gun buyback operation on Saturday but you won’t walk away empty-handed.
Anyone can drop off any firearm at the Jordan Grove Baptist Church, at 5946 NW 12th Avenue, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Those who drop off a gun will receive a gift certificate with no questions asked.
“It is necessary to try to remove as many illegal, unwanted, and unattended guns as possible from our streets to ensure our citizens’ safety,” stated Mayor Regalado and added,”We hope that the Holiday Gun Buy Back will be as successful as our previous gun buy backs.”
Three gun buyback operations held in 2012 yielded more than 200 guns including 2 AK-47s and an M-14.
“Regalo” means gift in Spanish, Regalado is the past tense of gift. This Mayor, a Cuban-American, should know better. We have to get rid of CRIMINALS, the guy who gets rewarded for an illegal gun is likely to get more in the future.
Besides, even gun grabbers know gun buybacks don’t work.
Washington CeaseFire’s Ralph Fascitelli to a member of Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn’s staff) that the city was so shy about revealing:
“I wish you guys would … have talked to us/CeaseFire about this before moving forward. The overwhelming research shows that buybacks generally don’t work well and are a waste of resources and are mocked by the NRA.
“We will be lucky to get a few thousand or more guns back,” Fascitelli cautioned, “many of which don’t work too well in a country where there are almost 2 million guns.” Fascitelli also reportedly criticized buyback supporters for doing “kneejerk standalone stuff.”
