Another gun buyback, another round of bullshit. But this time there is a little extra stupid.
“This has exceeded our expectations,” Police Director Toney Armstrong said. “They understand the message: Let’s get these guns off the streets.”
JoAnn Carpenter, 66, waited with her twin 9-year-old granddaughters, Ayanna and Akinna Carpenter. “I don’t like guns. I’m scared of them,” she said. After turning in two guns her sister owned, she said, “It will reduce the killing rate — not the death rate. That’s my take on it.”
Can I have a side of herp to go with my healthy portion of derp? This is the caliber of people who attend these shenanigans.
