    Leave it to enterprising Americans to always find a loophole in the midst of ever-expanding government regulation.

    While thousands of Seattle residents lined up for hours to trade their handguns, rifles and family heirlooms away in exchange for up to $200 in gift cards as part of the city’s latest gun buyback program, gun collectors who have seen prices for assault rifles and firearms accessories almost triple since November took advantage of a huge opportunity.

    Police stood in awe as gun enthusiasts and collectors waved wads of cash for the guns being held by those standing in line for the buyback program.

    Has anyone seen this reported in the corrupt old media?

    Seems like it would be newsworthy.:smilewinkgrin:

    well, the Seattle Times reported it:

    http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020223445_gunbuybackxml.html

    Funny none of the national media has carried the story.

    Sad, too, that the media has gone downhill so far. :tear:
