Last week the City of Albuquerque and the Albuquerque Police Department announced a gun disposal program. According to Mayor Berry and Ray Schultz via the Albuquerque Journal (read it HERE), the Journal stated, “Police Chief Ray Schultz on Saturday said APD always had a gun-disposal program, but he and Mayor Richard Berry decided to make it more visible, especially after the Newtown, Conn., shooting.” Folks listen to the announcement; gun-disposal program. Most normal people would interpret this statement and understand it to mean a turned in gun will be disposed of (destroyed) so it may NEVER be used again; Right?
Not so, according to Ray Schultz who is known for his fascism. You see, when you’re the Chief of Police or the Mayor of Albuquerque; these are just words and are subject to interpretation. In another Journal article (Read it HERE), the Journal made the following statements:
“The guns will be checked to see if any are stolen. If they are, APD will try to return the guns to their owners. All others firearms will be destroyed.”
“One of the more fascinating weapons handed over was a museum condition MP 40 machine gun used by German troops during World War II. It was turned in by a woman who said her late husband’s father was a German soldier.”
“Schultz said historic or rare weapons like the MP 40 would not be destroyed but placed with a state museum that has a gun collection display.”
In the article Schultz states, “We’ve had some pretty intimidating weapons recovered thus far, especially some of those that had their serial numbers ground off, so it really makes me feel good to get those guns off the streets.”
Taken at face value, a citizen would be lead to believe this was a disposal program and NOT another series of “Antiques Road Show.” Did Schultz or Berry compensate this person for this museum antique piece? The average value of this particular weapon has an estimated value of between $4,500.00 and $7,500.00.
Schultz is a liar and an oxymoron; first he states it’s a disposal program and he is pleased to get guns off the streets, next the Chief of Antique’s, Ray Schultz states, “…historic or rare weapons like the MP 40 would not be destroyed but placed with a state museum that has a gun collection display.” Schultz clearly states it himself; the weapons are to be destroyed.
Berry you own this fool. Folks, remember when you vote what this administration has done and continues to do.
