The Atlanta gun turn in event by NAACP and local churches had considerable competition from private buyers, as acknowledged by the wsbtv.com report
Gun collectors and enthusiasts, like David Daum, caught the attention of some people before reaching the Turner Field parking lot where the buyback was taking place.

"I personally just collect, restore. My personal preference is antique firearms," explained Daum. He said his reason for being out there based on preservation. "Being a collector, especially trying to keep some of the historical firearms from being melted down and destroyed."
From the video, it appears that Mr. Daum got at least a couple of decent deals. One that appears to be a Colt .45 semi-auto pistol, for $500, and an early Smith and Wesson revolver for $50. Private parties buying valuable items that otherwise would have been destroyed invalidates the whole "guns are bad" theme of gun turn in events. Mr. Daum paid more that 12 times the average of what the turn in organizers were paying for the guns that they purchased.
