"Give Us Your Guns For a Free Flu Shot"

City officials in Worcester, Massachusetts have a steal of a deal for gun owners. The city is enticing them to turn in their weapons with their “Goods for Guns” buyback program. In exchange for dropping off their unloaded firearms to the Worcester Police Department, these residents will get not only a Wegmans gift certificate, but also a free flu shot. “Absolutely, positively, come one, come all,” said Deputy Police Chief Edward J. McGinn. “We’re not asking any names or questions.”

The gift certificate value ranges from $25 to $75 depending on what kind of gun is presented. Even those who have a gun without proper licensing will be granted amnesty if they turn in their weapons. Once all the guns are gathered, they will be destroyed.

Since this particular buyback program started 10 years ago, they’ve collected 2,200 guns. It’s done in collaboration between the city police and public health departments. The public health commissioner and surgeon at UMass Memorial Hospital Dr. Michael Hirsh said that the program is to be credited for keeping the city’s firearm fatality rate so low. The Telegram reported:

 “Dr. Hirsh started the first gun buyback program in Pittsburgh in 1994 because he suffered the loss of a fellow surgeon, John C. Wood II, who was shot and killed on his way to work one day outside the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in upper Manhattan on Nov. 2, 1981. His son, John C. Wood III, plans to participate this year. LaNyia Johnson, sitting in a wheelchair, and his mother, Marcy Johnson of Worcester, attended a news conference at Worcester Police headquarters to offer their continuing support of the program. Mr. Johnson, 18, was just 13 when he was struck by a stray bullet while he was sitting on a couch at his aunt’s house on Douglas Street. The bullet came through a door and struck him in the spine. He was paralyzed from the waist down.”

 So, this is the typical left’s mentality. A loved one gets shot either intentionally or by a stray bullet, and their answer is to disarm everyone. Do they really think that criminals are going to turn in their guns just so they can buy a dozen extra frozen pizzas or Hot Pockets at their local Wegmans grocery store? Do they really think these criminals will want a free flu shot so much that they’d turn in their weapon? They must be delusional.

This is the criminal’s dream come true. Having all their victims disarmed will make it so much easier to commit their crimes. In fact, they may not even have to shoot anyone when they burglarize someone’s home or carjack someone. Their victims will be disarmed and no threat to the perpetrator whatsoever.

You don’t have to be anti-vaccine to think this program is just a way to bribe citizens into disarmament. At the same time, anybody who is so willing to give up their Second Amendment rights doesn’t deserve them in the first place.

    I will bet their amnesty puts you on a watch list.

    • Nadine

      YUP...too many Big Brothers...NOT GOOD!

  • Screeminmeeme

    Hitler supported gun control....as did Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, the East German Stassi, Castro, Brezhnev, Chauchescu, Parvanov, Gottwald, Gen. Jaruzelski, Kruschev, Il Jong,.... Now we can add Barak Hussein Obama to that list of despots.

    Where does Obama stand on the issue of gun ownership? Well, he sponsored a bill in the Illinois senate that would have banned ALL guns, including handguns, and once the bill was law, if the gun was not turned in in 90 days, the owner would have been charged with a FELONY.

    Along with Americans being disarmed, Obama also wants to establish a STANDING ARMY. He said so in a speech in Colorado Springs, July 2, 2008 when he said that he wanted a 'National Security Force'.

    HE said: "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's JUST AS POWERFUL, JUST AS STRONG, JUST AS WELL-FUNDED."

    Well, Obama got it. How many of you were aware of the fact that the HEALTH CARE BILL CREATED ANOTHER ARMY? The details about establishing, funding and implementing such a force can be found buried in the Obamacare Bill!.

    People have got to pay attention. The Canada Free Press has exposed much about Obama and his strategies when our own media has refused to.

    “The things done in every Marxist insurgency are being done in America today.”, according to Retired Lt. General William G.'Jerry' Boykin. He is a decorated former Delta Force Commander, US Deputy Under Secretary for Defense, and a recipient of the Purple Heart.

    Boykin says the formation of such a force is included in the thousands of pages of the Obamacare Law..... Boykin says such a police force would be at Obama’s disposal and is similar to national police forces socialist tyrants used to complete their revolutions.

    ) If you search the bill for 'Security Force' you will find nothing

    2) If you search for the innocent sounding phrase: “Reserve Corps” you will find:

    SEC. 5210. ESTABLISHING A READY RESERVE CORPS.

    Section 203 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 204) is amended to read as follows:

    SEC. 203 ø42 U.S.C. 204¿. COMMISSIONED CORPS AND READY RESERVE CORPS.

    (a) ESTABLISHMENT.— ‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—There shall be in the Service a commissioned Regular Corps and a Ready Reserve Corps for service in time of national emergency (undefined)

    (2) REQUIREMENT.—All commissioned officers shall be citizens of the United States and shall be appointed without regard to the civil-service laws and compensated without regard to the Classification Act of 1923, as amended.

    (3) APPOINTMENT.—Commissioned officers of the Ready Reserve Corps shall be APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT and commissioned officers of the Regular Corps shall be APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT with the advice and consent of the Senate.

    (4) ACTIVE DUTY.—Commissioned officers of the Ready Reserve Corps shall at all times be subject to call to active duty by the Surgeon General, including active duty for the purpose of training.

    (5) WARRANT OFFICERS.—Warrant officers may be appointed to the Service for the purpose of providing support to the health and delivery systems maintained by the Service and any warrant officer appointed to the Service shall be considered for purposes of this Act and title 37, United States Code, to be a commissioned officer within the Commissioned Corps of the Service. ‘‘

    (b) ASSIMILATING RESERVE CORP OFFICERS INTO THE REGULAR CORPS.—Effective on the date of enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, all individuals classified as officers in the Reserve Corps under this section (as such section existed on the day before the date of enactment of such Act) and serving on active duty shall be deemed to be commissioned officers of the Regular Corps.

    (c) PURPOSE AND USE OF READY RESEARCH.— ‘‘(1) PURPOSE.—The purpose of the Ready Reserve Corps is to fulfill the need to have additional Commissioned Corps personnel available on short notice (similar to the uniformed service’s reserve program) to assist regular Commissioned Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency response missions (Undefined)

    (2) USES.—The Ready Reserve Corps shall—

    (A) participate in routine training to meet the general and specific needs of the Commissioned Corps;

    (B) be available and ready for involuntary calls to active duty during national emergencies (undefined) and public health crises, similar to the uniformed service reserve personnel;

    (C) be available for backfilling critical positions left vacant during deployment of active duty Commissioned Corps members, as well as for deployment to respond to public health emergencies, both foreign and domestic; and

    D) be available for service assignment in isolated, hardship, and medically underserved communities (as defined in section 799B) to improve access to health services.

    (d) FUNDING.—For the purpose of carrying out the duties and responsibilities of the Commissioned Corps under this section, there are authorized to be appropriated $5,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2010 through 2014 for recruitment and training and $12,500,000 for each of fiscal years 2010 through 2014 for the Ready Reserve Corps.’’

    Obama promised that when he was elected, he would ''fundamentally transform America'' Perhaps voters naïvely thought that he meant ending corruption, back-room deals, partisan bickering, and the arrogance that seems to infect Washington politicians.

    It is clear now that what he meant was a transformation from a democratic Republic to a Marxist autocracy. Rather than making government more open and transparent, as he promised, he brought his Chicago hit squad to Washington to twist arms and pull fingernails, when necessary, to gain control over his domain.

    Obama’s army of thugs is quick to label opponents as right-wing racist radicals in an effort to discredit them. This label might be considered a badge of honor because it is not bestowed upon Marxists and their supporters.

    If a Marxist is a person who accepts the philosophy of Karl Marx, and an American is a person who accepts the philosophy of the U.S. Constitution, then it is possible to be a Marxist in America, but it is not possible to be an American and a Marxist. The two philosophies are mutually exclusive.''

    • JoJo58

      Excellent. I had heard Obama speak of wanting a civilian army as well funded and powerful as our military and it sent chills down my spine. He has said it many times and in different ways, but the intention is the same. I've taken the liberty of copying and saving your post and I plan on sharing it on Facebook. I know that there are people that will never wake up no matter what evidence you show them, but we can hope it might make them start to question things more.

      • Nadine

        I agree...I have heard him also...Brown Shirts! This is scarry, but the dumbdowns only hear what they want! I'll keep my protection thanks! This is gonna get ugly in the future!

        • JIMBYONLY

          I dont think ugly will be the right word for the future! We have lost our freedom- whats left? It will be nasty, down and dirty! Keep the faith, the 10%s will win.

        • Nadine

          We WILL win..NO DOUBT! We still are the Best of the Best in the world!

        • Michael G.

          You could be right. The good thing is that Obama has no future...

        • Nadine

          OH God...I pray your right! He is becoming even MORE dangerous with his distructive plans!

      • Screeminmeeme

        JoJo58...Great idea. I hope some will wake up to the horror that is Obamacare.

        I suggest you go the Canada Free Press website that I posted and copy the whole article which gives more details about the Reserve Corps that are listed in the bill. In an attempt to shorten my comments, I edited quite a bit out.

        • Jojo58

          I did just that and kept a copy of the link to repost later. I'm not a twitter person, but hopefully people will retweet your link as well.

      • JIMBYONLY

        Keep the faith jojo. The bozo has no idea what the size and scope of the civilian ARMY? is.

        • Jojo

          You're right. People need to start finding each other and start preparing.

        • JIMBYONLY

          I have been prepared for many years. I am not the only one! If bozo wants my guns( yes that is plural), come and get em! We cannot connect on the internet, but I am sure you can find others where ever you are! Check out your local shooting ranges, gun clubs etc. P.S do it before the gun bans start!

        • Michael G.

          Maybe we already have...

        This may very well happen. However, Obama will not lke the 'bak-lash' that would follow.

      Screaming,
      He already has his army. It's called "Homeland Security" and "F.E.M.A."! The twenty-first century version of the " Nazi Gestopo and the S.S.". FEMA has thousands of employees. What the public doesn't know however, is that only a small percentage of those actually perform FEMA work. Ther rest are "armed to the teeth" with automatic and heavy weapons", have the power of arrest and badges. (a secret army). The same with Homeland Security. FEMA has also recently compleated dsozens and dozens of "consentration camps" repleate with machinegun towers and fences topped with razor-wire, (leaning inward). Supposedly built to house evacuees of natural disasters, like hurricane Sandy. Problem is, they didn't use them for that. N.D.A.A. allows the US military to act as "cops" on american soil, arresting at will, without warrants or even probable cause that their victims did anything illegal. Those "selected" by the federal government, (Obama), are not entitled to any form of "due process", like seeing a judge, a courtroom, or even a lawyer. They can be held indefinately, without any charges. This is what President Obama and the democrat party has been doing the past 4 years. They will use these "new weapons" against the people at their "whim"! There is nothing we can legally do to defend ourselves from this "new american government"!

  • TheSunDidIt

    I'll keep my sniffles thank you very much.

    • Michael G.

      Besides you'll be over the flu n a few days.

  • DockyWocky

    How about "Give us your ObamaPhones" for a, what else, "FREE" flue shot?

    • JoJo58

      I'm lucky, I haven't had the flu in over 42 years and a cold in over 15, so I won't be lining up anytime soon for a shot from the government. I don't know for certain what is in it, and I'm not about to find out LOL

      • Sam in NC

        Good move JoJo, because flu vaccinations are poison, plain and simple. Before I woke up to the global NWO tyranny that's descending upon us, I got a swine flu vaccination, back in '09. That SOB nearly killed me ! I could barely get outta bed for 3 days, and I felt like I had a badger tryin' to claw it's way out of my stomach. I was 58 at the time, and I hadn't had a vaccination since I was a kid. I will never get one again, or let my 16 yr. old son get one. It's Gov't sponsored poison !

      • JIMBYONLY

        I was in the military way back then and was required to take the shot! I went thru the worst week of my life( heath wise). Never had one after!

    • JIMBYONLY

      And remove the 4.50$ from my phone bill?

    After you return you gun; you will reicivie a death certificate. Only criminals will have guns.

      That is exactly what happened in Mexico during the 1960's. Every citizen was mandated to turn in their guns in exchange for a few bucks and now only criminals have guns. I love both of my countries and it hurts me to see my beloved USA becoming a third world country with so much liberalism.

    • Doug Rodrigues

      Agreed. During my Military service, I was forced to take a flu shot every year. It sickened me each and every time. I've been out of the military for 45 years and have come down with the flu once. That's once in 45 years with no flu shot, and 5 times in 5 years with the flu shot. I still don't take flu shots. My gut tells me that it's all a scam anyway.

  • John

    Too bad they are so dumb, there is no gun that isn't worth a lot more than $75. The idiots could go to their local sports store or pawn shop and do better. Just shows hosw truely stupid liberals are.

    People who are stupid enough to give up their guns SHOULD be shot for free!

    • LibertysSon

      Yeah, $75 for a $500 handgun doesn't seem to work for me. Nanny State math I guess.

      • Nadine

        Not even $75...are you kidding....maybe $20!

      • eguyton

        Sure, when it's a stolen gun in the first place. Now the rightful owner will never get it back. I'm willing to bet that if you ran he serial numbers and the ballistics. More than half would be stolen or used in a crime.. The other half come from liberals the was an erlom and hey have no money invested or desire to keep it in the family..

    • Nadine

      HAAA! I like your thinking!

  • Tionico

    It should be easy for an astute and dedicated lawyer to make a hash of this program. First, those "buying" the firearmns are NOT licensed FFL Dealers, so they are breaking Federal gun laws by dealing in firearms without being licensed. Second, I am quite certain Massachussetts has laws about buying or trading for used goods. Most states have them to regulate pawnshops, but these laws apply to ALL transactions where an entity takes used goods in return for anything of value. These laws universally require the seller to provide, and the buyer to keep, record of identity, and details of the sale including serial numbers and make/model information.

    It would be great fun to initiate legal action to shut this sort of thing down. A free, amnesty including turn in would be a different story. But this is clearly a "buyback" deal, as "something of value" is given in exchange for the firearm.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Pamela-Dunn/100000108092512 Pamela Dunn

    There is NO EVIDENCE that gun "buy backs" reduce crime a single tiny percentage point in the area where they are held. It is an exercise in stupidity. Allowing honest citizens to carry concealed weapons HAS reduced crime in many states. WOULD YOU try to hold up someone IF you didn't know if that person was armed or not?

  • Malechi

  • Nadine

    If this is immunity for any gun, criminals may turn in small calibre guns that have serial numbers removed. Most of the guns turned in are probably stolen. It's part of America's gun confication programm. The thieves who break into homes are never caught and stolen gunes seldom retrieved.

    I have a Great Idea. Why don't some of the Gun Owners get together and offer a similar program. Give the people a 25 to 75 dollar Gift Certificate for their old guns, then let the Sponcers who pay for the Certificates have the Guns. And by ALL MEANS, Keep the Police OUT OF IT.

    How long, I wonder, before Massachusetts officials tear down the Minuteman Memorial at Concord? It was a guy with a gun that won that state its freedom against an occupying army. Does this pathetic excuse for a state retain any vestige of its great legacy from the past? Apparently not.

      I don't really like secession, but can't this state be voted out of the Union?

    This is just too stupid to even comment on.

    How about I give you a kick in the pants will I still get a flu shot !!!!

    You mean you can't afford $29.00 for a flu shot?
    I have a different approach: "Give me the flu shot, and I won't give you my 'business end."'

    Maybe the gun grabbers can disarm themselves and lead by example. They love unilateral disarmament. Then post gun free zone signs.

    Communists are coming out of the woodwork. We need to stop these anti-American idiots.

    No shortage of ignorance by government in this state! What they are telling their people is to "give up what is probably your only source of personal protection", (especially if you live in a bad neighborhood where break-ins are common place), and they will give you a small piece of "healthcare" in exchange! Criminals will hold onto their guns, while 90 year old little old defenceless ladies must decide wheather to die at the hands of an intruder or die from the flu because they coundn't afford the $20.00 price of a flu vaccine. Liberal, socialist, communist, democrat controlled governments, at every level, are total morons! God help us.

    What I believe is comming, (knowing Barack Obama and his agenda), is the confiscation of all firearms by the federal government. They will start by outlawing what they call "assault weapons", you know, those ugly and mean looking black semi-automatic rifles with the really big clips! This will be followed by banning ownership or possession of all firearms from american citizens. A dictator cannot totally control a country, (especially one as big as the U.S.), if it is armed. So he will do what he does best, Lie about his reasons, and then threaten severe punishment for those who refuse to obey "the great one". If you lose your guns, you will lose everything else immediately afterward. Just ask any W.W.II holocost survivor if they should have fought Hitler or just "jumped" into their execution ditch or the ovens of Aswitch, Sobebore or some other F.E.M.A. "care camp".

    This just MUST be a joke! I can't imagine anyone in their right mind making this trade.

    Let us hope that any lists of those who have relinquished their firearms do NOT fall into the hands of thieves! THAT list would be pure GOLD for any who house robbers who are, themselves, ARMED! They would KNOW there probably would be little or no resistance should they decide to 'call' on the owners!

    On the other hand, should the owner be actually only turning in an old, defective weapon, keeping a working firearm, could would-be robbers claim "entrapment" if they broke in wanting to accost the owner, but the owner turned out to be armed? Just askin'!
