On a sidenote I'm giving away free mag's to Ca. people please PM me with your names and addresses
WTF. I guess that doesn't surprise me though.
Palo Alto Ca.
While I was driving south on 101 I passed by the Ikea store which has a big electronic sign.
There was one ad that said: "$1000 REWARD For info on people with guns.
The sign had a silhouette of an AR and the logo for a police dept.
The sign advised people to report gun owners at the following number 650 321 1112. Ikea appears to own the sign but they use a company called Smart Sign Media to take care of the ads that run. (800-549-7300)
I called Smart Sign Media and was told by "Cheryl" that the ad was
placed by the East Palo Alto Police. They were offering up to $1000.00 reward. I called the 650-321-1112 number and was routed to a lady in police admin at 650-853- 3160. I could not get the lady's name, but she told me that the program was designed to get the public to report young men who were seen with guns in the street.
When I asked her what happened with these reports she said that these were only considered "incidents" until an officer checked them out.
When I asked her what she meant by checking them out, she said they would dispatch an officer to the address and see if the person had the "proper paperwork" for the weapon. If not, they would confiscate the gun and hold it pending further investigation. At this point, a true report would be filed.
When I asked her to define "proper paperwork", the process for getting a gun back, etc., she got very evasive and said I had to talk to a sergeant. I was then left on terminal hold. I called back twice with
the same result.
I need the following from all of you:
A. Include a request to have as many people as possible call 650 853
3160 and ask to speak to the sergeant on duty. Get as much info as you can about the program and the details.
B. Get people to start calling Ikea in East Palo Alto and find out why
they are allowing this to go on.
C. Get this information out to as many other 2A groups as possible.
You can get a PDF of the notice that includes a picture of the sign

Golden State 2nd Amendment Council"
Gave the number on the sign a call. It's a 911 dispatch number and they just told me to call 650 853 3160. That second number rang busy.
So, the Palo Alto police are not only infringing on your 2nd and 4th ammendments (right to bear arms and protection against illegal searches and seizures), but they are also encouraging people to call a 911 center frivolously.
On a side note, your side note is quite nice. What a man.
Like they give a shit, its apparent. They're on a mission.
on a side not that's an AK silhouette not and AR silhouette
good lord I hate that state or at least what they do.
on another side note I am watching some wild west shootout on history channel and after a bank robbery the whole town starts shooting at the robbers from alleys and windows.
So should we just grab the phonebook and start at the beginning, give them so many reports they give up?
no no no use maps.google.com putting in that number will bring it up. Then there is that little link "call" fill in the blanks in this idea
call everytime you see a cop and report a man with a gun.
I still have dibs on those AK mags you never dug out
if you have them on hand, lemme know
The James Younger Gang?
Basically, the paper work that they are talking about would be to see if the gun was a registered or unregistered AW. And really, a scan of the driver's liscence or gun serial number would tell the cops if the gun was legal or not, as well. The method for getting a gun back from LE is to file a form called a LEGR (I think). The only way that they can deny a LEGR request is if the gun is actually part of an ongoing investigation.
I got the pouch out with them in it, just have to ID which ones are the x39 ones. I should have a box to ship them out as soon as my bike battery shows up.
send me some mags...im in ca
and that doesnt suprise me...thats in the bay area
btw I posted this on calguns.net
i will ship 30 round ak mags to anyone in kalifornia. pm me if you want them. they arent free, but ill ship them none the less.
i shipped 20 there 3 weeks ago. fuck them.
so the sign says 1000$ reward on info of people who have guns. it doesnt say anything about legally owned guns. so if i call in and report myself. i should be able to collect 1000$. now that i have 4 guns i can report myself 4 times. this could work out in the wrong favor of the palo alto pd.
"hello, yes I have guns"
"why yes they are legally owned"
"give me my damn money"
We should make a trip to a phone booth and alert them of some guns.
"Hi, I saw someone with a shirt that sayed, 'Armed and Dangerous.' It had a big beefy arm on it, but I'm still afraid he may have had a gun."
I'm gonna paste this over on glocktalk.
if skype was still free I'd call em . . . but its no longer free at least for me
of course you mean that you disassembled them first, since while WMDers might steal the occasional UMP from a cop car, or keep a pair of .408s they find on the side of the road, of COURSE we wouldn't violate a bullshit law
and TL, let me know what the shipping will be and I'll paypal you for it
