Gun buyback in Columbia SC
Story here .
Gun buybacks are a great subsidy to gun owners. Everyone has a junker or two that's beyond repair and unsalable. You can still get $50-100 for it! When they had one here, gunnies turned out at the sites and watched as people came up, and made offers for anything worthwhile. One fellow got a Parker shotgun for $100! A gun dealer sold all his junkers to his employees, and they went around turning them in, and netting a nice profit as their bonus. I got $50 for a broken old single-barreled shotgun. We got the list of what was purchased, and I guess some of the sites were manned by people who didn't know much, because they laid out $50 each for broken Daisy BB guns.
