Why would anyone offer to purchase guns with no questions asked? Seems like a great chance to steal guns for cash. Also, if the gun was reported stolen, will the local police do their job and return it to it's owner if the gun was registered or serial numbers recorded ? Why pay more for a long gun than a concealable handgun? It was handguns that were used @ Sandyhook inside the school.
