For some reason, this man (pictured, with sign) haunts me the most after spending the morning at Saturday's Gun Buyback.
First, after offering me some doughnuts, he remarked, "This is the best gun show I've ever seen in Seattle." Then he leaned in too close and whispered, "You know, that shooter in Newtown didn't even have semi-automatic weapons. He only had a couple of handguns. The anti-gun people just needed a rallying cry."
A gazillion more photos, after the jump...

City officials and gun sellers:
BONUS: Anatomy of a buyer and a seller. A buyer named David intercepts a man, before he reaches the city buyback event, and gives him what appears to be 60 bucks for his rifle. Whole transaction took about 3 minutes. Easy-peasy.
