This is from Steve K:
I just came across this today. I'm not surprised that it was reported from the P.R.de K. Looks like the sheep are getting hungry and spitting out their Liberty Teeth for the promise of free food.
"S. Calif. residents trade guns for groceries Program brings in record number of weapons, thanks to tough economy"
Unfortunately we're probably going to see more of this suicidal lemming type activity happening more and more as the economy gets worse before it gets better.
On a brighter note, just celebrated my Birthday today by visiting a new gunshop with my wife Renee. She very much wants to adopt a DSA 24" Fal they have in stock.
Yours In Liberty! ~W~ III
The quote I found most interesting in this story was this:
One man brought in a Soviet-era semiautomatic carbine.
"If that got into the wrong hands of gangbangers, they could kill several people within minutes," Woods said. "Our biggest fear is a house getting burglarized and these guns getting taken."
Mind you, he's apparently talking about an SKS. On this theory, Sheriff's Sergeant Woods, I guess we would all be better off if we handed them all in?
