Boston offering Target gift cards for guns

Anybody who turns in a gun to BPD today will get a $100 Target gift card in a gun buyback to honor the memory of the children and teachers who died at Sandy Hook.

People dropping off guns at one of several collection point between now and 4 p.m. will not be asked any questions, the city says. The guns have to be capable of firing, but unloaded, and packed in a plastic bag inside something like a backpack. The gift-card offer only applies to handguns.

Target sells neither guns nor ammo

They have also mixed it up with the NRA over initially banning carrying guns in their stores and their continued policy of asking people not to carry weapons in their stores.

Same world we're talking about here?

The one where there's huge swathes of territory where you're bound to be stoned to death if someone accuses you of witchcraft or burned alive in a cage for praying to the right God but in the wrong way?

Show us these "large swaths of territory", you silly unimaginative troll. Show us where this actually happens. Put up or shut up.
