    "State Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, kicked off the gun buyback this morning by turning in his gun at Allen Temple at 9:45 a.m., according to spokeswoman Alicia Trost.

    Officers are hoping to collect at least 300 usable guns today, which will then be melted down into a peace monument.

    Any working handgun or assault weapon will be bought for up to $250, according to Perata's office. No shotguns or rifles will be bought.

    They all turn out that way, if I had some junk laying around, I would do it as well. Wonder what they say if you decline and walk away?

    I figure if I had the time and money (includeing for an attorney on retainer) I would go buy a bunch of junk for $50-75 each at the pawn shops and take in just to take up a bunch of their money then set up and use their own money to buy the good ones for same or more than they were offering.

    It's been tried and the po-po put a stop to it real fast. I can't remember the details but you knew someone would try it. But if you were an FFL and bought them legally I don't see how they could stop it. Set across the street with a "$325 for your guns" sign. That would be great.

    Would you need to be a FFL to buy firearms from private owners?

    Not sure about your area but here in Oregon it is legal to purchase firearms face to face (FTF) without any paper trail and/or background check.

    Except Silencers or Class III firearms-machineguns, anything requiring an ATF Tax Stamp.

    Hehehe, I've got a couple POS that I'd consider handing over for more than they are worth. [lolol]

    This was in CA so no FTF transactions are legal - they have to go through a FFL. If a "assault weapon" is being transfered then the FFL has to have the qualification for that also. Then once he has it he cannot sell it to any resident because of the ban!

    Here in NV FTF transactions are cool - I just gave a Colt HBAR to my son-in-law and didn't do any paperwork.

    No such barmy "buybacks" around here though.
