Default Anti-2nd amendment trash pose as gun owners who ruin or turn over guns to cops.

This seems to be a new tactic by anti-2nd amendment trash that started after the Las Vegas shooting. They pretend to be gun owners who either turn the guns over to the cops with media attention or they post a video of themselves destroying guns for media attention in the hope they can keep these guns off the street. I guess they figure that actual gun owners would be stupid enough to fall for it. I say they pretend to be because I find it hard to believe an actual gun owner would fall for the these semiautomatic firearms are more dangerous than the ones without "scary" cosmetic features". I also don't think a gun owner would announce to the whole world that they are going to be unarmed.

This moron only sawed off part of the barrel. He probably violated some law against making short barrel rifle. And the moron failed to realize that part can easily be replaced.

This moron gave them to the police who then in return will sell them to the highest bidder assuming the guns were not used in a crime.

This moron swung a sledge hammer at a AK47 before turning it over to the cops which will most likely be sold and repaired.

Grandstanding it is. Sawing up your weapon is not going to take a single gun off the street. Winchester, Ruger, will just increase tomorrow's production run by one or two knowing someone will copycat. So a probably non functioning weapon gets replaced by a new fully functioning weapon. And the idiot is out a grand.

I doubt it...

I give it a 2% chance these are the original gun owners...I'm guessing they were given by some organization (or even law enforcement) to create the show...

The azcentral article is hysterical...

Quote:
But as the years went on and Pring got married and started raising a now 4-year-old child, he said he didn't see the usefulness of having a gun around anymore.
Oh...So now that you have a wife and kid to protect, your thought was to remove your best protection????…

Quote:
"I'm not a scared man and I don't feel like I need a gun to protect myself," Pring said. "I just bought a baseball bat. If a burglar wants to come into my house, I'll take care of him the old-fashioned way."
On your knees begging for the life of your family when someone has a gun pointed at YOUR head?...

Quote:
Pring said he could have sold his gun at a pawn shop to get some money out of it, having shelled out $2,000 when he purchased them at the gun show, but said he thought turning the guns over to police made a more powerful statement.
No...You thought turning the guns over to police WITH A REPORTER AND PHOTOGRAPHER PRESENT "made a more powerful statement"...You wanted the attention...

...and you've also made people who can figure out where you live know you're now unarmed in the process...It doesn't take a genius to find out who you are and where you live considering the article begins with the fact that you run a downtown-coffee shop with your wife...

Pappalardo posted a video of himself explaining his decision before chopping up the semi-automatic weapon. He asks: ‘Is the right to own this weapon more important than someone’s life? … I don’t think so’ --from the link posted by jamesrage

Make sure you tell some intruders that when they threaten your family after a home invasion. They'll love you while they are strangling your wife and kids in front of you.

That's very possible. Even if the story is true, which is not a given.

In case you were wondering, discarding a 10/22 rifle and a pistol won't even make a tiny dent in the gun population of AZ. The chances it will inspire other gun owners to do the same is nil. Pawn shops in this area readily accept firearms as collateral for loans, in the unlikely event the guns are not redeemed there is a ready resale market.

Law-abiding people turning in their firearms to prevent shootings by criminals is like people turning in their crowbars to prevent criminals from breaking into houses.

I'm waiting for the video showing known criminals turning in their firearms to the police in the hope of receiving Justin Bieber concert tickets.
