Activists outbid police at gun buyback

In Austin TX:

Activists were successful in buying TRUNKS full of usable firearms that would have otherwise been destroyed (or ended up in the hands of “terrorists” – as we have seen before how cops confiscate guns and resell them to cartels…)

About 40 gun buyers, both independent and otherwise, stood in front of the Austin Police Gun Buyback Event offering CASH for the guns they were about to turn in to the city for food cards. As people rolled up, we approached them with our offers, and paid them hard cash after inspecting the guns to make sure they were operable. (the Police were unbelievably cooperative in the process)
About 50% chose to sell them to us, rather than the police. Some simply sold broken guns for $100.00 worth of food. 

I estimate about 3 – $4,000.00 was spent by our group.

Austin PD spent an estimated $30.000.00 (mostly for broken guns)
The weapons we purchased will go to those who otherwise cannot afford a firearm, and they will pledge to do some service for the community, and freedom.
Thanks to Texans for Accountable Government for organizing the event, and to all who stood in the rain holding signs, and offering an alternative to the city buy back program.
