Senator Jeff Flake
A Valley mom whose son was killed last year in the movie-theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, slams Senator Jeff Flake in an advertisement that's about to hit Phoenix airwaves, thanks to Flake's vote against a proposal for more background checks on gun purchases.

Caren Teves recently made news after showing that Flake had sent her a handwritten note that "strengthening background checks is something we agree on" -- before he voted against an amendment to strengthen background checks.

Phoenix police and Mayor Greg Stanton have announced that another $100,000 from an anonymous donor will keep the gun-buyback program going.

The funds for the program ran dry in the middle of the second of three scheduled dates for the buyback, which started with an initial $100,000 donation. An additional 72 guns were given to police in exchange for nothing after the grocery-store gift cards ran dry on Saturday.

Pricey Colt AR-15 Assault Rifle Among Guns Turned in at Phoenix Police Buyback Event

Categories: Guns

After New Times writer Matthew Hendley reported that Phoenix police took in an assault rifle at last weekend's "buyback" event, we were curious what kind of gun it was.

Turns out that, in exchange for a $200 gift certificate, an anonymous donor gave up a Colt AR-15 believed to be good condition, a firearm that might have netted a seller $1,000 to $2,000 on the open market.

The donor apparently needed inner peace more than money.

Senator Jeff Flake
Senator Jeff Flake has changed his explanation of why he didn't support an amendment to expand background checks for gun purchases and apparently is willing to vote for expanding background checks.

Flake's stance has been confusing, but Flake has offered up a scenario in which he'd vote for the amendment he recently helped defeat.

Phoenix police estimate that more than 800 guns were turned in during this weekend's buyback event, billed as being the biggest gun-buyback event in the history of Arizona.

Those guns will all be destroyed, since the new law preventing the destruction of guns turned over during buyback events in Arizona won't go into effect until later this year.

Russell Pearce, Ol' Buds with Killer J.T. Ready, Now Wants to Be the Poster Boy for Gun Rights

Neo-Nazi murderer J.T. Ready (left) and Russell Pearce.
The Arizona Republic somehow has found it reasonable to give a platform to recalled Senate President Russell Pearce, and in Pearce's op-ed piece this morning, he says he wants to be known for his stance on gun rights.

Perhaps, just perhaps, Pearce isn't the guy to trust on gun "freedom," as his ex-bud, neo-Nazi J.T. Ready, murdered four innocent people, including a baby -- with a gun, naturally.

The City of Phoenix's new gun-buyback program won't be affected by a new law designed to fight the program, but the law could cut down on any future plans for gun buybacks.

House Bill 2455, signed by Governor Jan Brewer, prevents the destruction of guns turned over during buyback events in Arizona, but a spokeswoman for Mayor Greg Stanton tells New Times it won't have an effect on Phoenix's buyback program.
