Detroit Michigan CCW Classes Instructor To Sway Participants at Police Gun Buy-Back Event


Detroit, Michigan – Dec 15, 2010 – Rick Ector, a National Rifle Association (NRA) Credentialed Firearms Trainer based in Detroit Michigan, will attend a city of Detroit sponsored gun buy-back event to educate participants who may have been misled by the police about the effectiveness of these events.

Ector, along with a few fellow metro-Detroit gun rights activists will be passing out literature that explains to city residents that gun "buy-backs" have no measurable effect on crime rates. Further, if they truly desire to no longer own the firearms, they will be provided information on how to sell their guns to dealers who will make them a significantly better offer than the amount that the city of Detroit wants to pay.

The gun "buy-back," sponsored by the Detroit Police Department will be held on Thursday, December 15th at 9:00am at Second Ebeneezer Church in Detroit. Participants will be offered $25 for inoperable handguns and $50 for pistols that work, on a no-questions asked basis. Furthermore, the police department in the past has pledged to have the firearms destroyed without verifying the possessor's ownership and attempting to return them, when possible, to the rightful owner.

Ector, when asked for his thoughts about the effectiveness of gun buy-back events, quoted a finding from a 1999 US House of Representatives Oversight Hearing on the COPS (Community Oriented Policing Services) Program, "Several scientific studies have shown that gun buybacks do not work. It is a sellout to doing what works to make news, not public safety."

Rick Ector is a National Rifle Association credentialed Firearms Trainer, who provides Michigan CCW Class training in Detroit for students at his firearms school - Rick's Firearm Academy of Detroit. Ector is a recognized expert in firearm safety and has been featured extensively in the national and local media: Associated Press, NRAnews, Gun Digest, The Politics Daily, Fox News Detroit, The Detroit News, WJLB, WGPR and the UrbanShooterPodcast.
