It was a gun sellers market in downtown Dallas Saturday. The previously mentioned gun buyback hosted by First Presbyterian Church of Dallas and The Stewpot found itself with some competition from an eager group of gun buyers that set up across the street.
Signs saying “We pay more!” and “Give your gun a happy home” were waved along the street, trying to sway individuals planning to take guns to the Presbyterian event to cross the street and sell the gun to another private owner for more money and prevent its destruction.
First Presbyterian has been holding gun buybacks for years paying cash for guns, no questions asked. They take the guns to a metal smelter to be destroyed. This year they were met with a counter buyback. The counter buybacks are becoming a common occurrence as the country grapples with the topic of gun control.
The article states that such counter-buybacks are becoming “a common occurrence”, yet this was the first I’d heard of, and not from a MSM source. I learned of this counter-buyback through an online friend who participated in it. Methinks this “reporter” let slip another small instance of MSM bias-by-omission.
