House Dem: 'Turn in your guns'



http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-actio...n-in-your-guns

Quote:
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Wednesday afternoon urged people to turn in their guns, arguing it would be an appropriate response to last week's mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

"I would personally just say to those who are listening, maybe you want to turn in your guns," Jackson Lee said on the House floor. "Oh no, I'm not going to take your guns. But look at what Dick's Sporting Goods did they wanted to be part of the solution and part of America."


Dick's Sporting Goods announced this week that it would stop selling and displaying guns at its store closest to Newtown, and would suspend the sale of modern sporting rifles nation-wide out of respect for the victims of the shooting.


"We are extremely saddened by the unspeakable tragedy that occurred last week in Newtown, CT, and our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to the entire community," the chain said in a statement on its website. "We continue to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by this terrible tragedy."

While Jackson Lee said she would not take guns away from people, she noted that she is the sponsor of legislation, H.R. 227. That bill would raise the eligibility to carry a handgun from 18 to 21, and ban people under 21 from possessing semiautomatic assault weapons.

Her bill, the Child Gun Safety and Gun Access Prevention Act, would also increase penalties for repeat violations of gun possession under the Brady Act, and prohibit the keeping of a loaded firearm in any premises where there is a risk that the firearm could harm a child.

She encouraged House members to support her bill, which was introduced in January 2011 and at this point has no cosponsors.

"Let us mourn with action," she said.

Mayor Bernero just stepped up the Lansing gun buy back program. They give $100 for handguns and $200 for "assault rifles". Hell, I will give anyone $400 for a working "assault rifle".

If this is true, I'm going to Lansing with a hand full of RI-60s and will hang out outside where the buy back is happening.

Last time Lansing did Guns for Groceries
They gave Meijer gift cards
$100 per firearm and an additional $50 for an assualt weapon
They did this down the street from my dads house. There was alot of gun collectors holding signs up to purchase guns for cash.
