Texas man turns in legally owned AK-47 to police in response to recent shootings

Hide Out Now – Sept 4, 2019

In a move that seemed to confuse even the police officer who greeted him at the station, a Texas man turned in his legally owned AK-47 to his local police station in an attempt to do his part to stop mass killings, according to KTBC-TV.

The man, identified in the story only as Billy from Austin, made sure to alert the media of his intentions so KTBC could send a reporter and a camera to document him bringing his weapon to an officer who appeared unsure what to do with it at first. Billy called for other legal gun owners to have the courage to follow his lead.

“I would encourage anyone that is in my position to do the same,” Billy told KTBC. “It’s not easy. It takes a lot more thought and a lot more courage to do this than to buy it.”

So, with the local news on board to film every step, Billy courageously loaded his AK-47 into his truck and drove to the police station. He left the gun in the truck and walked inside to announce his intentions to the officer on duty at the front counter.

As the officer was on the phone checking on what do do in this scenario, Billy took a moment to lecture him about the need to have these weapons off the street.

“If anyone else is wondering what to do with their assault rifles, this is one option, surrender it,” Billy tells the officer. “Y’all had a program once.”

“Either that or sell it back to a gun shop,” the officer replied.

“No, I don’t want it out on the street. You don’t want it out on the street either,” Billy said. “Y’all’s job is hard enough.”

Another officer escorted Billy out to the truck to retrieve the gun. When the transaction is complete, Billy tells the officer, “I hope you appreciate one more off the street,” another comment that suggests Billy feels he is doing the police a favor.

“We need to get them off the streets,” Billy told KTBC. “I need to get mine off the streets. I can only speak for myself and pray for everyone else.”

Billy’s obsession with getting his AK-47 “off the streets” is odd, considering it wasn’t really “on the street.” It was presumably in secure possession of a responsible, nonviolent owner; Billy told KTBC he had owned a gun since he was 10 years old.

Unless Billy had intentions of committing mass murder himself, he did not prevent any tragedies by giving away his own gun. But, that reality doesn’t stop Billy from being quite pleased with himself.

“I’m trying to make a safer place for you and me and my grandbabies,” Billy said.

    Billy is doing the right thing, the time has come for all True Believers,

  2. Stupid comes in many shapes.. Extremely stupid comes in even more..

  3. Austin?
    False news psyop?!
    Take it to the bank, or just buy land instead.

  4. 100% staged, and it’s a “Texas” man, from a gun loving state.

    Here’s the deal, the guy is probably an ex cop making some money on the side, to stage a news event, it wasn’t his gun, no one just gives away a Kalishnakov for free.

    Anyone who believes this story is a god damned fool

    And they cops involved are f-cking traitors.

    Bottom line: people in authority can not be trusted.

  5. When we had the gun amnesty in the UK
    my father gave in his collection
    one of which had initials carved into the butt.
    A while later i saw this same gun in a gunshop for sale, this led me to look further to find a pair of chrome pistols my father handed in also for sale –
    Dont be a mug keep your guns, the jews disarmed the British
    dont let it happen to you

  6. And his AK-47 ” Is off the streets ” …These faked fairy tales just seem to get bigger and bigger . My AK is not an assault weapon , its a tool against a tyrannical govt. when the time comes in the meantime its a tool against home invaders looking to murder someone .
