Private Company Funds Buybacks to Acquire, Destroy Firearms

by AWR Hawkins 14 Feb 2014, 2:53 PM PDT

GunByGun is a private company funding buybacks in order to acquire guns and destroy them.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, GunByGun founder Ian Johnstone is 31-years old. When he was 10, his father was shot and killed "by muggers in San Francisco."

Johnstone says he grew up watching his mother take part in activities "to rein in the number of guns on the nation's streets," and he felt a "responsibility to do something about this" as well.

His company has been "part of buybacks in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose." At each of these events GunByGun paid "$100 for most guns and $200 for assault weapons." Johnstone's company acquired about 500 guns, which it "destroys...with the help of law enforcement agencies."

When asked about his views on criminals' guns versus the guns of law-abiding citizens, Johnstone said: "Our point of view is that they're all dangerous, and they all pose a threat to society."
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

The Cartels are missing out here. A cheap way to get some serious firepower quickly.
The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.

The cartels pay much better than $100/200 a pop.

Maybe he should consider disarming the IRS, TSA, et al.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
