Bring In A Grenade, Get Breast Implants!

A city in Massachusetts – naturally – if offfering free flu shots if you turn in your “unwanted weapons.” From my cold, clammy hands!

The city of Worcester, Massachusetts is asking citizens to bring their weapons to the police department next weekend as part of the city’s annual “Goods for Guns Buyback Program.” In return for the guns, the city will offer gift certificates, and – a free flu shot.

Telegram.com reports:

“City residents, or residents of any other community, may bring their unwanted weapons, unloaded and wrapped in a bag, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday to the Worcester Police headquarters, or from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 8 to the Worcester Division of Public Health, 25 Meade St.”

Um, Worcester knows flu shots are pretty much free everywhere now, right?

    Crap on toast, I work in Worcester (Wormtown), and the Police Chief there is a rabid anti-gunner. For many years no one, and I mean no one got a pistol permit.
    More recently things have changed, loosened up a bit, but obviously, not much.

    Huh. The City is offering only $75 certificates for assault rifles.
    How much could someone sell an assault rifle for on the “open” market?
    I’ll bet it would fetch MUCH more than $75, and flu shots are free.

    Stupid is as Stupid does. The mayor is obviously STUPID.

    Every time I see some town running a buy-back program, I remember a couple of old gun dealers I know putting together some hand guns out of old, worn out, and mismatched parts, i.e. absolutely worthless, and trading them in for whatever was offered by the authorities. Just getting a few of their tax dollars back in my book.

    Me likey the picture of the 1911. I am in the market for one these days.

    So in the Peoples Republic of Taxachusetts an anti-gunner Po-po Chief is offering flu shots for “evil” guns? Got it. So the only ones who will have guns are the po-po? Hmmm.

    Well I am glad I don’t live there, because as my uncle (RIP) who was an LEO for 30 years use to say (and others too), when seconds count the police are always minutes away. He was a WWII vet too. Miss him.

    L Frame – Meh, it’s Massachusetts. It’s to be expected.

    Smite – I know, right?

    Mike47 – Similar. Mine looks like this one.

    Real – They’d be better off holding on to the guns.

    Old NFO – In Philly, CVS, Walgreen’s, etc. have free flu shots all the time.

    Proof – Sad state of affairs.

    Robert B. – When we have them in my division, the ones we get are rusted pieces of junk.

    Jim – Every non-thug in Philly should be armed. The thugs are, so why not give yourself a fighting chance?

    I get SO damn PO’ed at these “buy-backs”…with such LAME-ass “rewards”…
    In NYC they were giving $200 for broken toy guns a few years back…whatta bunch of dopes!

    I mean, if they would ever want ME to turn in MY firearms, at least make it WORTH MY WHILE.

    I’ve give you MY gun (and ammo) in trade for say…an ASTON MARTIN V8 Vantage (preferably in gun-metal grey with LH steering with automatic)…and you can even make it a USED model.
    (see, I’m not hard to please)

    Toss in an evening w/ Christina Hendricks and some scotch, and I’ll turn in someone ELSE’s gun as well.

    We CAN be “reasonable”, right?

    ;)

    Stay safe.
