Dumbest people in Joisey? Hint, not from The Joisey Shore


Camden, N.J., Cash for Guns Program Brings in Massive Amount of Firearms, Is Sandy Hook the Reason?

Record setting weekend for New Jersey’s gun buyback program in wake of Newtown massacre

From the New York Post

“CAMDEN, NJ — Residents of New Jersey’s most impoverished and murder-prone city turned in a record number of weapons in a recent gun buyback program, and officials on Tuesday surmised that the Connecticut school shooting could have something to do with that.

“A lot of people said they don’t want the guns around the house now,” said state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa as he announced the result of the program held Friday and Saturday at two Camden churches.”

“The state had $110,000 in cash to give to those who turned in guns, along with $6,000 in gift cards left over from a previous program.”

Because really, isn’t it important at a time when we should all be praying for healing for liberals to do something to make themselves feel good about themselves?

If you believe this is a feel good effort by concerned citizens who just came to Jesus in the last couple of days and can no longer bear the thought of having a gun in their home, you are beyond delusional.

Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t budget cuts leave crime-ravaged Camden, N.J., without a police department? Also, isn’t Camden among the 10 most dangerous cities in the U.S. where, in 2008, they had 2,333 violent crimes per 100,000 people – more than five times the national average?

An article from The Blaze said the following about the untold benefits of the buyback.

“Although more than a thousand guns were traded for cash between Friday and Saturday, Camden authorities say there’s still an untold number of firearms stashed throughout crime-ridden the city.”

All of this leaves me with the following questions.

-I wonder if there is enough money left in their have to cut police but not city employees non-budget for a sign that reads, “Welcome to Camden, now less safe than Kabul, Afghanistan”?

-How many of these guns were stolen from decent people by criminals who have now made a profit?

-How many of these guns were just lying around and are no longer needed by the criminals who turned them in because they have plenty more?

-How many of these guns were turned in against the better judgment of the owners because it is close to Christmas, they needed some extra cash, and the economy sucks?

-How many of these guns were used in crimes and were only turned in so the police could get rid of the evidence?

-Is there anyone stupid enough to believe that this will do any good in a city with a population of 77,000 that has more than 700 people on parole, 600 registered sex offenders, and has suffered 67 homicides in 2012?

-Where does a city that is so strapped for cash they need to cut the police force get over $100k in cash?

  1. I wish a state near me would do this. Go to a purchasing location, offer $50 per gun more than the buy back people offer. Good investment.
