Planned Gun “Buy Back” in Denver, Colorado is Likely Illegal

Baldwin Shooting: A Calamity of Preventable Gun Safety Errors
Planned Gun “Buy Back” in Denver, Colorado is Likely Illegal

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Colorado politicians have planned a gun “buy back” for March of 2022. They probably will not be able to hold the event, as Colorado law makes it nearly impossible to hold a “buy back” legally.

Those who want a disarmed population coined the Orwellian term “buyback” to describe events where people turn guns into police, to be destroyed, for money. The police cannot “buy back” guns they never owned, to begin with.

In 2013, people started fighting back against this propaganda effort by privately purchasing guns at these events. At some events, people used the money to buy better guns. States started requiring guns purchased by local governments to be sold, and the money used for the public good.

Local entrepreneurs/activists started selling homemade guns at these events, earning a profit and making for good photo opportunities.

Organizations such as Guns Save Life organized turn-ins of junk guns in order to buy good guns for youth programs.

The number of “buybacks” fell precipitously. A few continued in states where draconian law prevented private parties from purchasing firearms at these events, such as New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and California.

Academic studies have confirmed these events do not reduce crime or suicides and may have a small effect of increasing crime for a short period.

Colorado banned such events as a byproduct of a push for gun control.

Most people who initiate these programs do not research them. They insist on doing them for illogical or propaganda reasons. That seems to be the case of Denver and Aurora “buybacks” planned for 2022. From cbslocal.com:

Starting in March 2022, a new gun buyback program will be implemented in hopes of remedying the problem.

“Our goal is to get guns off the street. What we’re seeing is an extraordinary uptick in crime in both Denver and Aurora,” Denver District 5 Councilwoman Amanda Sawyer told CBS4’s Mekialaya White via Zoom.

Sawyer says now is the time to take action, after a massive increase in violent and property crime in recent weeks. That includes two shootings in Aurora injuring several teenagers just last week.

“I think for a long time there’s been a hesitancy for government to get involved in a program like this, especially in the metro area. There’s a crisis in our communities, especially with young people,” echoed Aurora Councilman-at-Large Curtis Gardner. “So, we are partnering with Colorado Springs-based nonprofit RawTools that will take guns volunteered at our buyback that will turn them into garden tools and jewelry. It creates a really neat synergy for the community.”

“We think it’ll be a really valuable partnership between both cities,” added Sawyer.

At each buyback, residents can turn in firearms anonymously.

Such events are not allowed by Colorado law. Every transfer has to go through a federally licensed dealer. The dealer charges a fee. It makes an anonymous turn-in unworkable, and almost certainly illegal. It is an unintended consequence of the draconian “Universal Background Check” law.

The law, passed in 2013, made private sales illegal. All transfers have to be conducted through Federal Firearms Licenses, making them subject to government approval, thus, no longer private.  Permanently giving a weapon into another entity to be destroyed, is a transfer, under the law.

In 2013, Colorado “buyback” events were canceled because they were made nearly impossible by the new Colorado law.

It seems unlikely the proposed event organizers will be able to get an exception to the Colorado law passed before March of 2021. It appears the event organizers and those promoting the event in the Media, have not considered the legal implications before publishing their efforts.

Ignorance of gun laws is common among those who push for disarming the public.

Gun Buy Back Programs = Freedumb Rebates

Ask Australia about False Flags Mass Shootings & how UK Ruling Hierarchy & Freemasonry was able to completely enslave & take Australia. Ask the people of Australia how their gubMINT treats them now for refusing an experimental VaXXine.

If you don’t know then you haven’t done the research & have no idea of how it works.

Exactly. Your tracking 100%. The Pharisee Powers of Egypt used what symbols as they’re ruling tenets ? For those that don’t know they used the Flail & the Crook (Severity/Mercy duality) Tutankhamuns Death Mask https://smarthistory.org/tutankhamuns-tomb-innermost-coffin-and-death-mask/ Rome used the same duality paradigm with legend & legacy story Remus & Romulus aka Cain & Able. Rome used the two pillars as in Left & Right duality of a ruling hierarchy gestalt dogma. Of course as PS mentioned above they don’t teach you the real important stuff in our indoctrinated absurd education system so therefore most have no interest only a false knowledge… Read more »

What we are seeing today is part of the vision Daniel interpreted for King Nebuchadnezzar in the book of Daniel chapter 2. The feet and ten toes made of clay and iron that we now know represents the revised Roman empire. Governments across the world have used and are using the Roman means of government still after all of this time . This revised empire is governed by the upper crust of wealth all over the world and are making their move to rule the entire world under one governor, satan himself. The vision ends with a stone not made… Read more »

Now that you have read all of that, you should read the Bible, you will learn far more than what you have already learned but will be up to date with what is going on today.

Tank

YAWN. Fact: I’ve read the Bible several times. Lol There is far, far, far more knowledge/gnosis than what’s in the Bible. Tell me about the Sephiroth Vern ? Tell me about the Pharisee’s & Sadducees Vern ? Tell me all about the Forbidden Books of Knowledge that were labeled as Apocrypha Vern. What that Vern you don’t really know do you. You only want to embrace people who think or hold the same thoughts or knowledge as you. You refuse tk even acknowledge the possibility that there is more knowledge. Your the problem b/c you only hold a limited viewpoint… Read more »

one thing i have learned over my three quarters of a century is that those who like to tell people they already know it all, don’t.

Tank

YAWN. Didn’t say that at all. I said there was more knowledge out there period. And simply asked you to talk about some other types of theology/philosophy etc. You failed that one miserably too Vern. Real Eyes Recognize Real Lies – character flaws … One thing I have learned is that people who put words in my mouth or try to manipulate the context is to avoid like the plague. I would like to see where you actually think I wrote that I know it all. Fact is, the more I learn the more I learn I know nothing. I… Read more »

I have read a lot more than I say or you know, it is that I find more in the Bible than I have found in other philosophies, much more. Most other philosophies include evolution as their main ingredient so they don’t have to talk about the scriptures. Evolution is full of stories that have no real content, so, they bore me real fast.

you have a great day.

Wild Bill

Yes, evolution theory is so easily disprovable that it has been tossed aside for “aliens created our DNA” theory

Since when have Liberal Democrats allowed any Law to get in the Way of Their Agenda. remember it’s for the Children, the Schools or Just because They Can and the Media will Justify It or Cover It Up.

Bozz

There is an uptick in crime in Denver and Aurora, so turn in your guns so that you can not protect yourself. Makes sense.

Elisa Delaurenti

They can’t “buy back” something they never owned in the first place. /yawn. Great quote, Dean! So great that I made it a meme! Whaddya think? comment image

I like it.

Garden Tools. You say?
Wha5 was that old saw? Oh Yeah. “Those who beat their swords into plow shears will plow for those who don’t.”

Yes, true! Wasn’t that Thomas Jefferson. He wrote some other good stuff, too!

Actually, that comes from a prophecy in Isiah 2:4; “And He shall judge among the nations and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks, nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” It is a prophecy concerning the world after the Lord comes again and sets up His rule over the planet. It is closer than we may think when you look out over this world of today.

Wild Bill

Yeah, all those positive waves, Moriarity! What could go wrong? Woof, woof, woof! lol

Don’t you have anything better to do, TEX? Sad.

gregs

so when have laws ever stopped a leftist? laws, we don’t need no stinking laws.

Chuck

I’m a native rural Coloradoan, and you couldn’t pay me enough to live in Denver or it’s satellite communes. Leftist Libturds control Denver and those communities. They’ve turned my fair State into Commierado.
The Libturd controlled Legislation will pass a law making it OK for Denver and it’s cities to sidestep the Lickshispooper (Hickenlooper Law), and the current Arse Spelunker governor will sign it with glee. Guaranteed.

My State’s screwed.

You are smart to be away from a worthy nuclear target, like Denver. The Chinese have 200 more nuclear weapons than our “intelligence” services thought, and a supersonic delivery system that can reach the interior of the US.

Please school me on WHY I shouldn’t be FOR these gun buybacks? It seems like I should WANT all those people who are dumping their guns —to dump them! They either don’t want them, don’t need them, hate them, are afraid of them, or would rather have $$ than guns. ALL GREAT reasons for dumping your guns. Those turned in will NEVER BE USED AGAINST ME. Simply put, the fewer on the street by untrained, unbelieving. Tell me what’s wrong with this logic – as long as these buybacks are strictly voluntary. In a perfect world, taken to extremes, there… Read more »

Wasted tax dollars, but if it is not in your state that would probably not affect you. Often guns used in crimes are gotten rid of that way, but if not in your area, that would not affect you. Public perception of “getting guns off the street” becomes an accepted practice, but that won’t affect you until the marxist come to get your guns off the street. Bureaucrats buying firearms in violation of federal and state law, that you have to scrupulously obey. Just to name a few.
