North Carolina voluntary gun surrender event produces big results (LOL Alert)

As evidenced by the footage accompanying the story, the gun turn-in apparently resulted in a single BB pistol and a single sheathed hunting knife being "taken off the streets."

North Carolina voluntary gun surrender event produces big results (LOL Alert)

A staple among the more “reasonable” gun control advocates in America is the voluntary gun turn-in or buy-back program. Hillary Clinton has recently gone on record as a big supporter of these programs, whether they be optional or not so optional, like in Australia. If you had any doubt about the effectiveness of such plans, the folks in Greensboro, North Carolina were out to prove you wrong this month. They held just such an event where they would accept any number of weapons, getting them off the streets and presumably out of the hands of criminals.

So how did that turn out? If you read the coverage from this Time Warner Cable News Network report it was a smashing success. Almost 1,000 people turned out and it was a glorious day to get guns off the streets.

Almost 1000 people took “A Pledge of Non-Violence” Saturday at Destiny Christian Center in Greensboro.

This was to show their commitment to safety across the Gate City.

Gun owners also turned in unwanted firearms and ammunition at the event.

Signing the pledge and turning in weapons was spurred, in part, by an increase in gun violence across the city.

So that’s a big win all the way around, right? Sure … but the details of the “success” become a bit less impressive if you watch the video associated with the report.

Looks like a couple of pretty cool Christmas presents for a 10 year old boy.

Those pledges people signed on paper can be hazardous to your health, paper cuts you know.

Oh I forgot, BB guns can put your eye out.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
