    What kind of a moron would sell an "assault" rifle for $150?
    I hope what happens in other cities happens here-people line up to buy from those who are turning guns
    in at the buy back program.

    Although I must admit that we once turned in an old broken down shot gun that was worth nothing.
    Got a $50 gift card to Fred Meyers- and used it in a Freddies that happens to sell guns and ammo :)

    What makes me sick is when a little old lady brings in her deceased husbands old USGI 1911 or his Lugar he brought back from the war. Old war horses deserve better then that.

    BTW...doesn't Oregon law state that if 25 or more guns transfer hands it represents a 'gun show' and therefore requires a process for transferring those weapons?
    Perhaps the cops will be doing this...lol

    Well, actually the title of this thread should be "Gun turn-in scheduled in Portland this weekend". No mention made anywhere of it being a "buy back"

    I smell a fund raising opportunity - let's see how many spent one time use grenade launchers we can sell them and donate proceeds to OFF or other advocacy group. Then we can enjoy the egg on their faces when we point out what those bazookas and stinger missile launchers actually are.

    What gets me is they don't use due dilligence in trying to return stolen guns to their rightfull owners! They make it easier for tweakers to get cash from stolen guns without repracutions.

    Wow, even after those. Someone needs a slap down. They're after ALL guns.


    Sounds like you could go and offer double the card value and come away with a steal on anything. Wish I had some money to go do that.

    So is it legal under OR law and Portland ordinances to have a sign in the parking lot offering cash? I read through as many laws and ordinances I could find, but found nothing that makes it illegal.

    I've seen previous posts (and news stories, as well) where folks (many from this board) would walk around the outside of such an event with a "Cash for Guns" sign - and come away with a nice few items at the end of the day. Most times, it seems the police were pretty cool with it.

    This is always in the news, the police will probably make you stay in a certain area, but there's nothing banning you from being on public property with a sign. Private property is a different story tho.

    I'm just pissed that they're wasting my tax money buying Fred Meyers and Safeway gift cards to buy (and then resell at a huge profit) guns.

    Why do we not get a voice in where OUR tax dollars are spent?

    I mean, while we're at it can I divert tax dollars to buy up all the booze so alcoholics can't drink and drive?

    Can I misappropriate tax payers hard earned cash to buy up all the soda to save people from Obesity?

    Wish I could go. Between National Train Day and my sons pine-wood derby racing, my morning and afternoon are booked! Best of luck to those who do show up.

    If I take some old crappy single-shot shotguns and screw a (painted black) piece of 2X4 on the foregrips, do you think I could sell it as an assault rifle?

    Be sure to glue or tack at least 10 hair clips to the 2x4, and then stop by Home Depot and get a cabinet hinge. Saw the wood stock someplace, and reattach it with the hinge. Now you have your "collapsible stock" attachment. That would give you at least 3 assault weapon "features" :)

    Hmmmm. I've got an old Ivar Johnson single shot .410 shotgun with a stock thats cracked in two. It might be worth something, but not much. Maybe I'll take the $75 Fred Meyer gift card and go buy some ammo with it...

    When I was a kid I had a "parade dress" version .45 1911 in a white leather cavalry type holster. It was epic for army along with my blue M3 grease gun which was a real grease gun (axle as I recall). I wish I still had it. I'll bet I could con them out of $100.00 saying it hadn't been cleaned in ages and seized up. It was just a solid chunk of steel or aluminum prototype size.
