    That is completely absurd. Add that to the fact that it's the LA County Sheriff's Office urging people to do this and not some stupid anti-gun organization. Unbelievable...

    It's very funny to see people turning in their guns for nothing.

    I've thought about going to one of these here in the Valley and offering $150 a gun in cash.

    Pesky ATF and their laws concerning selling / buying weapons in mass.

    It doesn't matter who is advocating it, what matters is that people are trying to take guns out of the hands of our citizens through any means possible.

    You can't let alcoholics have guns. You know what happens when they rob a liquor store, they empty all he shelves.

    I'm just saying that it surprises me who is advocating this. One would think that it would be some kind of idiotic anti-gun organization and not the LA county sheriff's office.

    One important point: action by this armed citizen may have saved many lives. We can't know what might have happened, but given the known factor of all these mass murders in the news lately, he may have saved 5, 10, 15 (up to however many people were in the building), lives by shooting down the perp before he got going.

    The police would have shot him as well, only this time there was no time for this goon to kill an innocent bystander.

    I know this may come as a huge shock to you, but there isn't just two monolithic sides, "pro-gun" and "anti-gun". I personally believe that people should be allowed to own guns. However, I also believe that guns should be registered, gun owners should be trained, like this hero that had a CCP (most states make you go through a firearm safety course first), and a background check should be performed whenever practical, so someone who has a history of actual mental issues, or someone who went to jail for a violent crime, doesn't get a gun legally. I'm sure most of you will put me in the "anti-gun" camp, but try to be realistic. It isn't black/white.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Gun registration has only historically ever led to confiscation.

    You have more faith in the government than most anyone if you believe that won't happen down the road.
