StG-44 Sold At California Gun Buyback For $200
LOS ANGELES, CA - A gun buyback program in Los Angeles, California turned up a person willing to sell a World War 2 $30,000 Sturmgewehr 44 for a $200 gift card. The StG-44 was the first modern assault rifle built by the Nazis, who would have likely been big fans of the LAPD’s tactics.

This person gave away an antique gun isn’t the only person to make this mistake. Another person in Hartford, Connecticut sold one at a police buyback but the officers were nice and told him what he had so he could sell it for what it was worth. “This is a gun that should actually be in a museum rather than in a shredder,” said one of the Hartford police officers.
Nazis loved gun control. That’s why they issued a nationwide registry in order to have a list of who had them so they could disarm and murder them when it came time for the final solution. Americans during World War 2 hated Nazis and their gun control tactics. In 1941, just before Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Congress reaffirmed gun rights by prohibiting registration. And in 1968 two bills proposed to register guns were debated with opponents recalling the days that Nazis asked people to register their weapons.
Nowadays, we don’t need registration because people are willing to turn over their guns, even antique pieces of history, for a mere pittance.
