ALERT: Publix & Burdines proving funds for anti-gun program Numerous folks from the Miami area are very upset about Publix supermarkets and Burdines department stores assisting the anti-gun effort and promoting crime by providing FREE $50 gift certificates for "gun buy-back" programs in Florida. These programs incite street thugs to break into homes and gun shops to steal guns to turn in -- no questions asked -- for free $50 gift certificates. The program also provides a "no questions asked" means for criminals to get rid of guns used in crime -- which destroys evidence needed to help solve crimes. So-called gun buy back programs promote and encourage gun crime. If you are a Publix or Burdines customer and would like to express your views on their participation in anti-gun programs, the addresses and phone numbers are listed below. Charlie Jenkins, Publix CEO: 1-800-242-1227 Publix Super Markets ATTN: Consumer Relations P.O. Box 407 Lakeland, FL 33802-0407 and James M. Zimmerman, Chairman/CEO Burdines/Federated Department Stores 7 West Seventh Street Cincinnati, Ohio 45202 (513)579-7000

Here in Florida (or at least in my county), guns that are pawned are entered into a database and cross-referenced with LEO stolen gun reports. Getting a $50.00 gift certificate for some of the crap I saw on the news report was not a very fair trade for the police. All I saw were pieces of junk. There were a few NFA weapons, like sawed-off shotguns, but I wouldn't trust my life with the crap turned in.
