Baton Rouge offers gas for guns swap

Over in Baton Rouge four churches will be offering gas cards to anyone who turns in a handgun or assault weapon.

It is in a partnership with Circle K Stores Inc., whatever that is.

The event will be held Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or when the $40,000 allocated to gun buybacks runs out, whichever happens first.

No questions will be asked and no IDs will be checked. Gas cards will range from $50 to $200, depending on the type of weapon turned over. Assault-style rifle exchanges will get $200 gas cards, for example.

Wish it was in Mississippi. I've always wanted to stand out front and offer more (and real cash) for the good stuff.

So they have $40,000 to spend on junk guns? Let me get some opinions from y'all. I'm not trying to be funny here, I truly wonder which would be more effective. Here goes:
$40,000 spent on their present endeavor.


$40,000 spent helping arm and properly train the church members.

My take is offering the gas cards for guns is a huge failure. It's only a "feel good" effort. I agree they are trying to do something to help but how much is it really going to help?
However, they could help stimulate the local economy by purchasing guns and ammo and paying some local firearms instructors to train "the flock" .
