Colorado Gun Buyback Event Canceled Due to Absurd New Gun Laws

Posted by on Jul 25, 2013 at 7:07 am

Let’s face it, these anti-gun nuts aren’t the brightest bunch.

Organizers have canceled a gun buyback at the request of Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle, who said Colorado’s new gun laws would make the Aug. 4 event nearly impossible to stage.

“The bottom line is what we anticipated doing would still be legal — but procedurally we can’t follow through with it at this time,” Pelle said Tuesday.

A stricter law that went into effect July 1 requires buyers to go to a licensed firearms dealer and undergo a background check. The InstaCheck systems used in the checks are not mobile, which means they couldn’t be used at the sheriff’s compound where the buyback was planned.

“It’s not a portable system,” Pelle said. “It can’t be done at the site.”

Essentially, for the event to work, Pelle said the group would have to find a licensed firearms dealer to host the event and then pay the dealer per transaction, “which becomes very unproductive,” he said.

Nothing like thinking these things out in advance. Idiots. Ironically, the gun control clowns would have to pass background checks themselves to stage to sham event.

After consulting Deputy County Attorney Dea Wheeler, Pelle had concluded earlier that as long as members of Together Colorado passed required background checks, it would be legal for them to purchase firearms at the August buyback.

    I suspect the checks that go on at the gun shows are done by calling the Sheriff’s office and waiting whilst the Sheriff uses their non-mobile system to run the check.

    Semper Why – no, it’s not portable. Licensed dealers at gun shows actually place a call to the FBI every time they sell a gun. Sometimes there is instant approval, sometimes there’s a bit of a wait, and other times there is instant denial. The FBI has something like 5 business days to respond to the dealer advising them whether or not they can go through with the sale.

    ” …the group would have to find a licensed firearms dealer to host the event and then pay the dealer per transaction, “which becomes very unproductive,” he said.”

    I thought that these halfwits believe that their imperative to remove guns from the citizens is a safety measure? I guess they only believe that if the free citizens of the US are footing the bill. Freakin’ fascist trash.
