      According to the police press release, they did NOT take down names of sellers. From the article:

      “The gun buyback is completely anonymous and no questions will be asked.”

    I was at WalMart today. Man what a waste of money. They ran out of money by 10:30. I would not have given $500.00 for all the guns the bought today. I saw them buying junk guns for $200 – $300 each. They had a buggy full and the Officer say he had the trunk of his cruser full. They were paying $20.00 for a BB gun $200 for a junkshotgun etc. All they got was people cleaning out junk guns no one would give $50 for. If this was of ANY benifit I don’t see any. As stated “A TOTAL WASTE”.

      Thanks.

      Now we know why there are no counter-BBG buyers vying for bargains.

      The laugh is now own Bernie, CPD and Amazon.

    So one can turn-in four of those old JC Higgins/H&R-type junk and purchase a new .45 cal/.410 Taurus Judge. Or use the money to replace old ammunition in their hidden “cache.”

    Still cannot understand why LCSO’s Clueless Tony Cooper is not investigating the rape associated with the arson of the Rufus Richards Stage Coach Inn?

    really stupid operation, waste of man-hours and cash. did they get any meaningful results or just a bunch of “saturday night specials”? hell, the thugs these days carry Glocks and Springfields, they will use the cash from their old crap guns to by ammo for the newer ones.

      Will the REAL Ben Toledano please stand up. How can you, Ben– described as a paleoconservative, former States Rights Party candidate and victim of the civil rights lobby’s campaign to defeat your chances at being appointed the to the bench of the Fifth Circuit of Appeals in New Orleans–engage in the kind of Southern bashing, Progressive Internationalism(thank you,John Pilger) diatribe over at Tom Freeland’s NMisscommentor.com blog? I think O’Dwyer’s right about Tom’s “religious” affiliations. Goldwater was a “practing” whiskeypalian, too.

    Makes one wonder if Birney intends to defend his family and property with that baseball bat by his headboard.

    And we we were all kept guessing what Birney’s cause celebre was going to be for 2013. Now we know that it’s pushing gun control.

    Old Lawyer~

    Why don’t you share with us the identities of those conspirators who participated in the Kill Huey P. Long Plot? We know that Hodding Carter, Jr. was a participant and managed the “yellow journalism” Hate Huey campaign through his Hammond, Louisiana newspaper. When Long was assassinated, Hodding fled Louisiana for Mississippi.

    Give us an update, please.
