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
here: http://www.gs2ac.com/flyers/PAPolice...Collection.pdf and on our web site.

Many thanks,

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.

Seeing how you joined last year and only have 20 posts, would you like to know about the legality of the bullet button? How to build a CA legal AR15? How to remove a flash suppressor? Where to get the best ammo deals? What ranges are CA legal AR15 friendly?

Geez, no wonder I keep confusing this website with www.reruns.com

My bad.

You know darn well the bet bet is gripless and fixed magazine. ;)

I know we're going to see this "breaking news" a couple more times, but I hope they at least get it right sooner or later and realize that E.P.A. != Palo Alto.

It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
