The city of Baltimore held a gun buy-back earlier this week.
They spent a bunch of money.
And the mayor thought she had something to crow about:
She did not.
Update: City of Baltimore paid $500 for this spent rocket launcher in its gun buyback. Military and ATF contacted for tracing pic.twitter.com/enlJcBUUHx— Jayne Miller (@jemillerwbal) December 21, 2018
It’s a spent tube from a military “AT-4” anti-tank weapon. I emphasize – spent. It’s been fired – so all it really is now is a fiberglass tube with some miscellaneous parts and hardware. The only thing it’ll ever launch is flowers – but only if you tip it up on end and fill it with dirt and seeds.
And they can be had for about half what the city of Baltimore paid for it – $500.
