Gun buyback failures

I have called several District attorney offices in several states over the years to determine if a specific gun buyback program was active. Every time that I have called, including recently, I have been told that they don’t know when the next one is.

My most recent call and question was about an article they had on their site that wasn’t dated. I was trying to inquire if it was accurate or already passed, they didn’t know the answer to that question.

As a private citizen, this does not inspire confidence in our leadership or police department efforts to get illegal guns of the street. To be clear, I am not here to engage in the nonsensical gun debate. That’s a debate for someone else. I am speaking about a person who attempting to dispose of illegal firearms.

I am a law abiding citizen and the few times that I have made this phone call for a friend, I’ve hit a dead end and received no answers. So if I can’t find the answers, what makes you think that a person who doesn’t care will bother?

Leaders, Government, Police stations, it is up to you guys to make this easy, safe and anonymous. If you are serious about getting guns off the street, it should not be so hard for me to find out this simple information. You all talk a big game about illegal guns, especially the Democrats, but why is it that I can’t get some answers to some basic questions around disposing illegal firearms?

Do you want to get rid of them or not?

Please note, the main image was taken at a shooting range in West Virginia with a legal firearm.
