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.

As editorial cartoonist for the Clarion Ledger, Marshal Ramsey, left the USS Kidd with his son a few weeks ago his A/C quit then the engine ran hot. Some random shot hit his radiator, a .25 ACP

I wish I could go there too and buy some! I also wish I had some junk handguns I could turn in for the gas cards!

I'm sure the police would find some BS excuse to lock you up for a few hours if you tried to out bid the gun grabbers. Still, I'm temped to ride down there with a suite case full of twenty dollar bills and give it a try. Who's in?
Unless you have a Louisiana FFL dealer standing next to you that can ship it to your Mississippi FFL, you are SOL on handguns and giving the money to your Louisiana resident buddy will get you nailed as a straw purchaser for sure! Try a few years, not hours!

Rifles may be okay, it's been awhile since I read the regs. Be advised they will be looking for a reason to lock up anyone who messes up their feel good photo op.
