Houston Gun Buy Back Event
Man sells his 3-D printed guns and makes bank
On Saturday July 30th, Houston city officials held their first gun buyback event. The mayor’s office says more than 840 firearms were turned over to the city in exchange for $50, $100, $150, and $200 Visa gift cards.
The amounts were based on the type of firearm, including $50 for non-functioning guns, $100 for shotguns/rifles, $150 per handgun, and $200 for automatic rifles.
A few people took full advantage of this idiotic event.
One Reddit user posted that they made $850 off of their own 3-D printed gun parts.
They also said they bought guns off of people in the line for cheap.
Another man brought 62 of his own 3-D printed gun parts and got $50 for each, so we walked away with $3,100.
Fox 26 tracked down the seller and he had this to say:
"The goal was not personal profit, but to send [Houston leaders] a message about spending $1 million tax dollars on something that has no evidence of any effect on crime..."
Of course, now the Houston mayor says they won’t be buying those back next time around.
When will people learn it’s not guns that are the problem? It’s depraved human beings.
