With fear mounting daily about an uprising against our government, police are stepping up their efforts to take firearms from US citizens. Coaxing them with $100 dollar gift cards during these troubled times is appalling.
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Police in South Carolina want you to have a rose for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. All you have to do is turn in a gun.
Authorities are running the “Guns for Roses” program Saturday at two locations in the central part of the state.
Anyone who turns in a gun gets a free rose and a Best Buy gift card. A handgun gets a $100 gift card, while a rifle or shotgun nets a $50 gift card.
Richland County sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Chris Cowan says there has already been a great turnout at one Columbia location and deputies have seized about 75 guns in the first 90 minutes. Cowan says one man brought six handguns.
He says there is no amnesty for the gun owners. The weapons are checked to see if they are stolen and ballistics test will also be done.
