A woman in Baltimore did her civic duty and took a gun to a city buy-back program to turn it in to police…. then hilariously took the money to buy a better gun!
That isn’t what these liberals who sponsor these useless programs want, naturally. What they want is to disarm the people entirely, not give them money to go buy a better gun!
But one woman, named Darlene, in Baltimore found a way to defeat the liberals at their own game.
The reporters at WBFF, Fox Baltimore, met the woman as she was headed to the police station to take advantage of the buy-back program.
“One woman shows us the 9MM she is turning in for the Baltimore City Gun Buy-Back program. But she says she is using the cash to get a bigger weapon!” wrote Fox reporter Kathleen Cairns.

Fox also interviewed the woman:

She said she wanted to “upgrade to a better weapon.”
Now, that right there is funny, I don’t care who ya are.
Of course, we all know that these ridiculous gun buy-back programs, while popular with cities trying to look like they are “doing something,” really have little effect on crime.
Rarely do these programs spend your tax dollars on buying the sort of guns that criminals use. Far more often police end up getting old hunting rifles, broken antique pistols, bird-shot shotguns, and other old junk found in people’s basements or attics. Rarely do police get serviceable semi-automatic handguns or so-called “assault rifles” in these programs.
So, most of the tax dollars doled out for these guns go for weapons that no one would ever use again, much less use in the commission of a crime.
In any case, this woman in Baltimore really turned her city’s buy-back program to her own ends, didn’t she?
