    Gas for Guns

    BATON ROUGE, LA. — Four Baton Rouge churches will be offering more than spiritual counseling and messages for redemption next week. They'll be handing out gas cards to anyone who turns in a handgun or assault weapon.

    Why not "Gas for turning in the dirtbag that committed a gun crime"?

    don't even get me started on this dumb ass promotion... - "let's give the criminals money for turning in stolen weapons..." and not use the money that was DONATED towards funding some overtime or grant-like projects to go throw their asses in jail...

    it's funny how money can get donated for this and not for overtime and projects - whether for the PD or the DA's office...

    told ya, don't get me started...

    but hey, I guess it's better than nothing =/

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    I dint understand what they intend to accomplish. Gangbangers aren't about to turn in their guns in. when they can sell it on the street for a lot more than a $50.00 gas card. The people that will be turning in the weapons will be the dirt poor folk that cant afford milk.

    The press will show a few pics of the stack of evil guns taken off the street, officials will get that feel good press moment they can use come election time.
    What part of "the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    Why not "Gas for turning in the dirtbag that committed a gun crime"?


    Or even better, "Solar-powered appliance for turning in the dirtbag that committed a gun crime"?

    Agreed. Desperate media ploy by embattled politicians that will do little to solve the homicide rate. Here's a novel idea. Instead of trying to get guns off the street when you have a chance to get a criminal off the street ,do it. Stop plea bargaining your way through the docket. I'm tired of hearing about lack of jail space. "Builld it and they shall come".

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
