    Default Austin Police wants any unwanted firearms you may have -- no questions asked

    Whhuuuutttt to cheap to pay some cash?????....

    The Austin Police Department wants to get more firearms off the streets.
    Next week they plan to hold a gun surrender operation.
    They'll accept any unwanted firearms you may have -- no questions asked.
    The program takes place Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 3 - 8 p.m. at their East Austin sub-station on Springdale Road near 7th Street.

    APD Chief Brian Manley said he hopes the operation will help curb growing gun violence.

    Below are instructions for the event:

    • Do not walk into the substation with a visible gun or ammunition
    • Unload the gun
    • Put the gun and ammunition in separate bags
    • Leave the gun or ammunition in the car (trunk or back seat) or bagged (if on foot)
    • Tell an officer you are there to turn in a gun and they will safely retrieve it

    Setup to get wanted criminals with warrants. And how many criminals care if the gun is stolen or used in another crime?

    No questions asked? Guns are supposed to be legal in Texas aren't they? If someone wants to bring a gun to the police and say here, I don't want this one anymore they should say "Thank you sir"... no questions asked pffft!

    I know it's not a reference but picked this up off of the internet
    Texas has no laws regarding possession of any firearm regardless of age.


    Edit:
    What it sounds like is they're trying to put into the heads of peoples that owning a gun isn't really legal and if you have guns and you realized that fact, you can bring them to the police and we will not arrest you

    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Set up a booth outside with a banner saying “We buy any gun $$$” In the past I’ve seen some very nice guns in the buy backs the cops have done. Somewhere real collective pieces. What a shame. Even the cops can’t take them for themselves.

    Sure I'll ask questions. Like does it work or do you have any others?
