According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, during a one-day gun buyback in Los Angeles, people turned in 2,037 firearms, including 75 assault weapons and a rocket launcher. Yes, you read that correctly: A rocket launcher.
How is someone able to come by a rocket launcher? I can’t even find the barbeque sauce I like in most supermarkets, and this person was able to get a rocket launcher.
It’s Weber’s barbeque sauce, by the way, in case you were wondering. Yes, the same company who make the grills. How’s that for synergy? It’s made with real molasses and not artificial sweeteners. But, I digress.
So someone was able to buy a rocket launcher. That doesn’t mean we need stricter gun laws, does it? I’m sure it was a “good guy” who turned it in. Probably bought it at a garage sale. You can find anything at a garage sale. Hell, I found an uncle who I thought was dead at one. He was just sitting there on a table between Rainbow Brite and My Little Pony.
Whoever turned it in, I would like to meet them. If they can get their hands on a rocket launcher, I’m sure they’d have no trouble finding me my Weber’s sauce. Sure guns may kill people and all but serving ribs with a crappy barbeque sauce? Now that’s a crime.
And there’s no buyback for that.
