St. Louis Mayor: Give Us Your Guns, We’ll Give You Groceries

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson (D) is reacting to the rising crime in her city by offering to give people groceries in exchange for their firearms.

She will do this via the kind of buyback program that Democrats in other cities have unsuccessfully implemented around the country.

On December 8, 2017, KSDK reported that St. Louis had witnessed more murders in 2017 than in any year since 1995. On December 11 the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department listed the number of murders, year-to-date, at 197

The SLMPD shows that 185 of those 197 murders were carried out with firearms. One hundred sixty-two of the victims were black males and 22 were black females. Ten victims were Hispanic. One hundred twenty-seven of the suspects in the killings were black, and one suspect was white.

Victims were predominantly aged 20-29. Victims aged 30-39 made up the second largest group.

According to Newsweek, Mayor Krewson said, “We can’t incarcerate our way out of this situation.” So she plans to offer the citizens of St. Louis grocery cards in exchange for their guns. She also plans to increase funding for recreational activities.

State Rep. Bruce Franks (D-St. Louis) reacted to the Mayor’s plan by saying, “I think she’s trying something she feels is going to be effective, but in reality we just know that they’re not.” He pointed to failures of previous buyback efforts in the city and explained that people will simply bring in antique or non-functioning firearms, give them to the city, and walk away with grocery money.

    The ransom of food for your guns. So it begins… This is the beta test to see if weak-minded people will surrender their liberty for food. .gov is not your friend. It is your last chance to free yourselves. Give them your guns and count the days you have left. They dig the burial trench as we speak, you will be herded to its edge soon enough. It will most likely be your own guns used to drop you into that trench… Good luck with that!

  6. JoeSTP says:

    What Mr. mayor, is really doing, informing the people that guns will be needed in the future in order to eat. A gun to keep groceries or a gun to take all the groceries. Anyone that can not see that will get the bullet.

  9. Sunfire says:

    Turn in your guns for GMO foods and other toxic crap. Sounds like a great idea! Anyone stupid enough to fall for such a blatant, in your face scam deserves neither freedom nor liberty!

  10. Jolly Roger says:

    St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson is an idiot. If you sell your gun to a criminal you’ll be able to buy a lot more groceries than the city of St. Louis is willing to give you for them.

    Or…. you can use your gun to hold up a grocery store.

    Many criminals operate a lot like businesses, and see ownership of a firearm as a capital investment that gives them a bigger return on their crimes.

    “… offering to give people groceries in exchange for their firearms.”
