Witchcraft!

You don't have to be completely irrational to confuse historical vandalism with peace activism, but it helps.

Nice to see that the medieval concept of the "deodand" is alive and well in progressive California.

ajdshootist - hearing stories like that just makes me want to cry. . . I am a WWII history nut and a gun nut so it hurts twice as much I think. . .

no respect for history any more

An amazing world, where they take the pistol from a Korea vet who is a former cop, and consider that equal to taking guns "off of the streets." The guns they took never saw a street.

I always liked the deodand concept.

C. S. Forester has a good story in his collection, "The Nightmare", about Nazis, called "The Deodand".

And for those who can't figure it out, the POLICE SPOKESMAN suggests-

"No statistics are available to show a link between gun buybacks and violent crime. Illegal guns are available for as little as $50, and there's nothing to stop an enterprising criminal from surrendering a $50 handgun and using the $250 to buy five more," Joshi said.

I can see it now, in the San Francisco P. D. armorer's room- "Hey, Sarge- you know all those old beater Model 10s that Glock only offered us a $50 credit for? Oakland's paying $250..."

Destroying that korea war service weapon was so wrong on so many levels...

And the whole "buyback" gun amnesty thing also equals destruction of a lot of evidence.

If I lived there though, I'd buy out all the cheapo guns I could and hand them in... then I'd use the profit to buy myself some real quality guns instead.
