  • Sounds like i need to set up across the street offer a little more and in cash

    • Lmao, this shyt doesn’t work, they’ve done three of these Buybacks in the last year and it’s done nothing to the crime rate around here. Just gives criminals money for stealing them with their no questions asked anonymity policy.

  • Great. Now we have to worry about someone breaking in and stealing a gun to replace the stolen one they just sold.

  • Think we can give them money to buy back the city commissioners?

    I’m confident that would do more to stem the threat of crime plaguing the city.

  • Nothing more than a political stunt. Buybacks never worked in G’ville, never will. I know first hand they don’t.

  • What better way to get rid of the murder weapon or gun used in any crime. These buybacks dont work. I rather see GPD hand out pool passes. Maybe the water would cool tempers.
