Rusty Guns n’ Roses

Back in December, Oakland offered free Guns N’ Roses Tickets to anyone who turned in a gun to the police. At the time, people wondered how popular an incentive Axl and the gang would be to Oakland’s gun-toting population. Now we have the answer: not very.

Over two days, in two locations, the gun exchange program netted 67 guns, according to a report from the Chief of Police, Wayne Tucker. It sounds like a failure, but at least the firearms were functional. A gun-for-a-computer swap in 1999 brought in 200 guns – 200 "old, rusted, inoperable" guns.

And the city didn’t run out of Guns N’ Roses tickets. In 1999, the city didn’t have enough computers, and gave out vouchers. But Oakland couldn’t get more computers, and those vouchers could never be redeemed, which, as the chief says, "understandably,
created distrust and apprehension about future programs."

    They should have offered tickets to 50 Cent instead but 67 guns are “better” than nothing at all and a few lives was saved…

  2. new gnr May 2, 2007 at 10:29 AM #

    if ONE life is saved, then it’s a good thing…

  3. Dr.Feelgood May 2, 2007 at 10:38 AM #

    Yeah come on Us Guns fans only start riots we dont use guns how silly

  4. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 10:39 AM #

    Hey everyone here,
    …is anybody at home…?

  5. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 10:42 AM #

    new gnr, I agree with you! And although it didn’t quite work out as they planned it was a good idea after all…

  6. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 10:42 AM #

    …some people here feel good and it’s fantastic…

  7. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 10:49 AM #

    Hey free ticket for someone who turned in a gun to the police … maybe people didn’t undertsand this idea … but Gun for GUNS sound different? ;)

  8. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 10:49 AM #

    Hey Slash w/o, how are you?

    new gnr, I’m here :)

  9. Chris May 2, 2007 at 11:01 AM #

    I agree one gun off the streets of Oakland is a plus. GNR tried to do something helpful for the community and still gets no “positive” press what so ever… Just think 67 guns off the street could save 67 lives…

  10. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 11:02 AM #

    …I’m fine, thanx for asking how’s you…

  11. Chris May 2, 2007 at 11:03 AM #

    Hey SWOC! So did you go to the concert in Poland where all the youtube links were from?

  12. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 11:06 AM #

    Hey Chris,
    maybe this action/ idea/plan/ project must have positive press … but as I said maybe people just didn’t understand this move…it’s true one life is saved, so it’s fantastic time…

  13. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 11:06 AM #

    I’m great, SWOC!

    Hey, have you heard of that Wrestler guy who offers 2500$ for the leaks of CD and The Blues?
    Crazy, but still an impressive effort just for some leaks, imo.

  14. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 11:08 AM #

    …I hope Chris that those links from concerts were good enough … I didn’t have camera on this concert I was in real Jungle with Guns in the background that was fantastic… even Rose was smiling …!!!

  15. new gnr May 2, 2007 at 11:11 AM #

    GLAD TO SEE YOU HERE… :)

    so, what’s new..?

  16. Adam May 2, 2007 at 11:11 AM #

    Hey Penny Lane:

    What wrestler / $2500? Do you have link to story?

  17. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 11:15 AM #

    Adam, no link but check out the gnr forums like chinesedemocracy.com or mygnrforum.com. His name’s Mr.Saint Laurence and he offers 2500 dollars for the leaks..

    Hey new gnr, nothing new so far..How are you today?

  18. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 11:18 AM #

    My bad, his name is Mr. Saint Laurent

  19. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 11:21 AM #

    It’s this guy:

    Thanks Penny.

  21. chris May 2, 2007 at 11:29 AM #

    SWOC, the links were great I nver have high expectations when it comes to youtube. It was cool to see such a large crowd goin crazy for GNR.

  22. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 11:30 AM #

    You’re welcome, Adam!

  23. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 11:32 AM #

    This guy is really talented man and good buissness in his mind…those 2500$ for CD and the Blues links … Axl will watch him…

  24. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 11:35 AM #

    I think it’s a lot of money just for some leaks.. and a cracy idea to pay that. But at the same time, it’s impressive how much effort he puts into getting the leaks… He also said if he gets them he will share.. Can’t wait to see if he succeeds!

  34. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 1:03 PM #

    The setlist I’d like to hear is similar to the one above, only I’d add all the other GnR songs (old and new).. Would be a long, long show though, lol

  35. Roger Hornsbey May 2, 2007 at 1:11 PM #

    The album is never coming out. And they will pull out last minute from one or all of these concerts and piss everyone off. At the very least they will force crowds attending one of those stadium concerts to wait over 4 hours before they hit the stage causing a riot. If they do play, invariably Axl will lose his temper at a single fan or security staff member and yell, “WE’RE GOING HOME NOW, GOOD NIGHT!!”
    I have no faith what-so-ever in Axl’s integrity to do the right thing. I have no faith that CHINESE DEMOCRACY WILL EVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY. Axl is nothing more than a white collar criminal who WILL DEFRAUD US ALL WITH NO CHINESE DEMOCRACY IN 2007. I also predict that Universal Music will start legal proceedings in 2008 against the band for lost revenue and misappropriation of invested monies! THIS I VIRTUALLY GUANANTEE !!! OH YEA AND I ALSO PREDICT THAT AXL WILL BLAME EVERYONE BUT HIMSELF!

  36. SLASH WITHOUT CASH May 2, 2007 at 1:14 PM #

    … an optimistic post is gold …

  37. new gnr May 2, 2007 at 1:24 PM #

    PESIMISTIC PEOPLE LIVE SHORTER THAN THE OPTIMISTIC..SO ANYWAY, I HAVE MORE CHANCES TO HEAR CHINESE DEMOCRACY THAN YOU.. LOL…

  38. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 1:27 PM #

    I feel the positive energies flowing in here…lol

  39. Roger Hornsbey May 2, 2007 at 1:43 PM #

    I am a happy well adjusted person NEW GNR. I will live a very long time. No doubt! When what I’ve stated above comes to fruition. You will understand too as I have come to understand the situation and it’s true nature.

  40. new gnr May 2, 2007 at 1:53 PM #

    c.democracy WILL see the light of day, don’t you worry, roger…

  41. Roger Hornsbey May 2, 2007 at 2:03 PM #

    NEW GNR question:
    What makes you so positive??
    More positive in your position than I am in mine? HONOSTLY.
    Is it pure optomism? Is that you’re going on? Or do you have some unique insight into the situation from a personal standpoint? I for one have discussed at nauseum this very topic with people in the legal profession within the music industry. And it appears as though a strong claim can potentially be made against this entity called Guns n’ Roses if certain, shall we say, “reparations” are not made within a certain statute of limitations.
    Please reply.
    Thanks

  42. Me May 2, 2007 at 2:38 PM #

    People can take this however they want. I’m from the Bay area. Spent plenty of time around Oakland and I can tell you that most of the gun totin’ folks there are not the kind of people you would find at a GnR concert, so this is in no way a reflection upon GnR’s popularity. At least it was a good effort on their behalf, just not a logical one.

  43. Me May 2, 2007 at 2:42 PM #

    Sorry, didn’t realize I jumped into the middle of such a heated disgussion…..and holy shit….I was on topic. What is this world coming to.

  44. Me May 2, 2007 at 2:51 PM #

    ..and that was DISCUSSION that I meant…how embarrassing!

  45. FRANK X May 2, 2007 at 3:08 PM #

    Maybe because people are pisted off at Axl just like me for fucking the best5 band ever. Maybe because he is a lazy fuck despite that he is a genius. Maybe because Axl has been promising a lbum that never came out.
    Maybe because he is the only member left and Slash,Izzy, Duff and Steven made the name GUNS N ROSES not just Axl.

  46. Me May 2, 2007 at 3:18 PM #

    Frank X, just out of curiosity, have you read Catcher in the Rye?

  47. Frank X May 2, 2007 at 3:23 PM #

    Me, yes I have read that song but not in a long time. Why ?

  48. Me May 2, 2007 at 3:25 PM #

    Oh, just curious.

  49. Frank X May 2, 2007 at 3:29 PM #

    Me, seriously, i am curious because you wrote that for a reason. Is that song about John Lennon or something ?

  50. Taz May 2, 2007 at 3:33 PM #

    hey guys this doesnt have to do with guns but here is the new ozzy single http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twUeqPvyUsA

  51. Me May 2, 2007 at 3:34 PM #

    just taking a poll.

  52. Me May 2, 2007 at 3:40 PM #

    Something smells…….fishy.

  53. - May 2, 2007 at 3:46 PM #

    I hate it when people come across so authoratative on GN’R, especially when they think they can predict the future. Yeah, some shlep from God knows where “knows for a fact” that Chi Dem is not coming out……Christ!

    P.S. Hi Me!!

  54. Me May 2, 2007 at 3:47 PM #

    Hi Hyphen, long time no see!

  55. - May 2, 2007 at 3:52 PM #

    Yeah, They are really cracking down at work on internet use on company time. Seeing as I like being employed I figured I should lay off for a while. How have you been? All is good I hope.

  56. Me May 2, 2007 at 3:56 PM #

    It’s nice to be employed so that’s probably a good idea. Had a little accident weekend before last. Cast on the right arm and just had my left wrist casted on Monday so I could probably really kick some ass in a cage match so I’m great. Thanks for asking. I hope all is well with you. Done anything fun lately?

  57. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 3:58 PM #

    Me, interesting poll you’re taking, lol

  58. Me May 2, 2007 at 3:59 PM #

    Do ya think, PennyLane? Thank you….I’ll keep you advised on the results.

  59. - May 2, 2007 at 4:03 PM #

    I hope the other person got the worse end from that tussle. ;-) Lots of fun stuff. Playing with my kids and my dog is always a blast!!

  60. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 4:09 PM #

    Definitely, Me! Can’t wait to see the results, lol

  61. Me May 2, 2007 at 4:09 PM #

    Yup, kicked his ass!

    What kind of dog do yo have?

  62. Me May 2, 2007 at 4:11 PM #

    Oh, I meant what kind of kids do you have?….lol

  63. Me May 2, 2007 at 4:16 PM #

    No wait…I think I had it right the first time….I’m so confused.

  64. Me May 2, 2007 at 4:20 PM #

    How was your day PennyLane? Do you take night classes or just day?

  65. - May 2, 2007 at 4:22 PM #

    hahahaha!! I have 3 kids, all boys and a yellow lab, he’s a boy too. Any pets?

  66. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 4:25 PM #

    Busy day today, even without classes.. Spent two hours at the copy shop to get the texts for my English class tomorrow.. Just got finished with reading, yippie! I only have lessons twice a week this semester, the rest of the time is left for preparation..or let’s say it should be, lol

    How’s you, Me?

  67. Me May 2, 2007 at 4:25 PM #

    2 kids (not pets) boys, an australian shepard (boy), and 2 aquariums full of multigender fish.

  68. Me May 2, 2007 at 4:27 PM #

    Im fine thanks PennyLane, how are you? That reading assignment didn’t involve The Catcher in the Rye, did it? Sorry, I had to ask. Poll, remember?

  69. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 4:34 PM #

    Just a little tired, but all in all fine, thanks!

    Ah yes, the poll! No Catcher in the Rye..but might be interesting for your poll: I’ve read it in school, and not only read it but had to interpret it until there was nothing left, lol.

    Did I get that right, you have both arms in casts now? Oh poor girl! But quite funny when you think about it, lol

  70. Me May 2, 2007 at 4:37 PM #

    Sorry, I have to run out….

    Hyphen, It is always a pleasure when you pop in. Take care and I hope to see you again soon. Kiss the kids and the dog for me.

    PennyLane, sounds like you have had a full day. Hope you have a good night and I will try to catch you tomorrow.

  71. PennyLane May 2, 2007 at 4:40 PM #

    Thanks, Me! Have a nice evening! Catch you tomorrow.

  72. Gomer Pyle May 2, 2007 at 5:04 PM #

    I’ve read Catcher in the Rye twice. And upon conclusion of each reading not once did I want to kill John Lennon or Ronald Reagan.

  73. Gomer Pyle May 2, 2007 at 5:06 PM #

    I agree with Rogers Hornsby. Obviously Chinese Democracy is never going to be released. Anyone who actually believes it after all these years is a complete fool.

  74. GNRReunioneventually May 2, 2007 at 5:41 PM #

    well most of those gun baring niggers listen to fuckin rap so of course the Guns for Tickets isn’t gonna go over well for a Rock band in a rap community.

    and i mean niggers as robbers, theive, and low life degenerates. NOT BLACK PEOPLE in general. Thank You

    m/

  75. Roger Hornsbey May 2, 2007 at 5:42 PM #

    THANK YOU GOMER! I hope it comes out in 2007 but if there is no word on it by the end of June you can kiss it goodbye forever!
    I am confident this will be the case.
    FOLKS, LET THE LEGAL PROCESS BEGIN!!
    Universal Music Group (plaintiff) vs.
    Guns N’ Roses with one W. Axl Rose as acting defendant.

  76. Gomer Pyle May 2, 2007 at 5:57 PM #

    Hey Rogers, great name by the way, I think we could amend an initial complaint for punitive damages against Axl and his Mgmt Co for intentional emotional inflection by not releasing the CD has promised in the past. But you’re right, this CD will never come out. He’s had over 10 years and nothing….um, people, hello!!!!

  77. Gomer Pyle May 2, 2007 at 6:00 PM #

  84. Me May 2, 2007 at 7:45 PM #

    Just so you know she-rocks. The Catcher in the Rye has nothing to do with baseball statistics so it won’t help.

    …or The Matrix.

  86. Rob May 2, 2007 at 7:51 PM #

    Well guys I got my gunners tickets in the mail last night for the Sydney show on 23 June.

    Printed on the ticket is ‘A late-night rock and roll extravaganza’. At least this is honesty in ticket policy, although the ticket also says an 8.00pm start. I have seen them twice and Axl has been late both times so it doesn’t bother me.

    Should be great.

  99. di May 2, 2007 at 9:55 PM #

    hey, did anyone ever hear anything else about the recent gnr leaks?

    the song chinese democracy sounded amazin, was hopin a full leak of the song was to follow soon as it did with better

  100. Gomer Pyle May 2, 2007 at 10:10 PM #

    I suggest we all get together and file a class action suit against Al & Mgmt company to force the release of Chinese Democracy. Obviously it will get tossed but at least it will put some public pressure on him, perhaps.

  101. Me May 2, 2007 at 10:24 PM #

    There have been much more ridiculous suits that didn’t get tossed. Could be worth a shot.

  102. chris May 2, 2007 at 10:34 PM #

    I say lets do it…. Why not could even be fun… Who knows maybe they’ll settle out of court with a free trip to see all the Australian shows!!!!

  103. Teacher Bill May 2, 2007 at 10:35 PM #

    Last one to leave please take out the Euro Trash.
    See you later new gnr!

  104. Me May 2, 2007 at 10:46 PM #

    I’d settle for that settlement Chris.

    Teacher Bill, thanks for starting World War III

    “Freedom of speech” does not not give a person the right to shout “Fire” in a crowded theatre.

  112. nando May 3, 2007 at 3:21 AM #

    Churchhill never sounded so drunk….kidding calm down….great beginning to an Iron Maiden song though! on live album many moons ago

  119. Euro Trash I May 3, 2007 at 3:43 AM #

  120. nando May 3, 2007 at 3:50 AM #

    good night and good luck

  121. PennyLane May 3, 2007 at 4:34 AM #

    Dear Teacher Bill,

    it’s those brainless remarks like yours that causes other countries to feel contempt for certain nations.
    You indeed have the freedom to think and say what you want.
    But freedom always comes along with responsibility, responsibility for your own words and actions! “What ye send forth comes back to thee”, never heard of that?
    No one wants to be offended for no reason, so what’s the use of your post???
    Or in short: Do me a favour and shut the fuck up!!!

  122. PennyLane May 3, 2007 at 4:36 AM #

    Now it’s out, what a relief!!

  123. Me May 3, 2007 at 5:49 AM #

    PennyLane!!!!!!! Did you say “Fuck”?!?!?! I knew the end of the world was coming.

  124. Me May 3, 2007 at 5:54 AM #

    No nando, I live in Cape Coral, Florida, now. I’m from California. Lived in Sunnyvale and Santa Clara.

  125. She-rocks May 3, 2007 at 7:10 AM #

    Afternoon all!

    PennyLane I’m shocked … but well said girl!!!

  126. She-rocks May 3, 2007 at 7:26 AM #

    So Teacher Bill … what’s the lesson today … alienation? bigotry? prejudice? You choose … you seem to be a master in them all

  127. Teacher Bill May 3, 2007 at 7:46 AM #

    I was responding to new gnr’s statement when I called him Euro Trash. If you do not recall it was someting like this ” i can’t stay calm, when fuckin’ American Joe thinks that we all should have read what he read..america is not the only state in the world ”

    So I responded. All you other wonderful Europeans, I apologize. Did not mean to offend, and should not have made such a blanket statement.

  128. ? May 3, 2007 at 8:00 AM #

    Everyone is sooooo politically correct anymore! Oh no someone called me a name! Waaa Waaaa

    Come on people, get a fucking backbone!

  136. new gnr May 3, 2007 at 10:08 AM #

    teacher bill, i’m not gonna waste my breath on you, you’re simply not worth it..it’s like talkin’ to a skinhead about the rights of africanamericans…some people never learn, i’m a little dissapointed that gn’r has fans like you…goodbye……………………….

  137. PennyLane May 3, 2007 at 11:40 AM #

  148. Big PAt May 3, 2007 at 3:57 PM #

    Interesting? thats an understatement. It needs to stop! I know that much.

  149. Me May 3, 2007 at 4:44 PM #

  153. Me May 3, 2007 at 5:26 PM #

    And you did a fine job. What, you don’t like the concept of lactating men?

  154. Me May 3, 2007 at 5:27 PM #

    8)

  155. Me May 3, 2007 at 5:39 PM #

    Oh let me guess……..business call…LoL

  156. She-rocks May 3, 2007 at 5:40 PM #

    I’ve heard of man boobs but lactating men ?!

  157. Me May 3, 2007 at 5:42 PM #

    The medical term is gynecomastia, but man boobs has a nice ring to it.

  158. chris May 3, 2007 at 6:24 PM #

    wait a second??? men can really have lactating boobs???? Come on, really?

  159. Me May 3, 2007 at 6:26 PM #

    No, I don’t think so. I’ll have to look into that one…..Lol

  160. chris May 3, 2007 at 6:32 PM #

    Oh gynecomastia is man boobs, not lactating boobs… Now I see, Google saves the day again.

  161. Me May 3, 2007 at 6:34 PM #

    You’re so funny Wikapedia Master. OK change subject…..getting nauseated.

  162. chris May 3, 2007 at 6:44 PM #

    Well me/ —— what do ya wanna talk about???

  163. Me May 3, 2007 at 6:49 PM #

    Not sebastian bach…..we might tangle on that one. Just sentimental about that moron for some reason. Wouldn’t want to have to take you down. :)

    You choose. You’re better at subjects than I am.

  164. chris May 3, 2007 at 6:55 PM #

  167. chris May 3, 2007 at 7:04 PM #

    Hahaha: well since you brought it up… which ones do you think are better water-base or oil-base roids?????

  168. Me May 3, 2007 at 7:07 PM #

    I prefer the water-base. The oil base puts too much hair on my chest and shrinks my…..well……you know.

  169. Doctor Bill May 3, 2007 at 7:09 PM #

    Both shrink your sack. So choose your poison Chris. And please dont say they do not.

  170. chris May 3, 2007 at 7:10 PM #

    Really??? I prefer oil-base nothing like greasy skin and hug zits

  171. Me May 3, 2007 at 7:15 PM #

    Doctor Bill is that a professional medical opinion or are you a connoisseuer of the sac.

    Chris, what the hell are hug zits?!?!

  172. chris May 3, 2007 at 7:29 PM #

    I meant huge zits/ pimples… You know when people juice they get real bad pimples especially on thier back and neck.

  173. Me May 3, 2007 at 7:32 PM #

    Oh, I thought those were small inflamed, puss filled muscles.

  174. chris May 3, 2007 at 7:47 PM #

    new topic: I was watch the you tube link with axl, izzy and the stones… I really like that song, wish I could download onto my ipod… Any way you can really see how izzy and keith richards play similar… Lots of Stones in GNR…

  175. Me May 3, 2007 at 7:54 PM #

    Do you have a video Ipod. My oldest son put knows of a site that you can go to to convert the youtube to MP4 and put it on the ipod. I have a lot of youtube stuff on mine. I cant remember the site right now, but I’ll find it and get it to you.

  176. Me May 3, 2007 at 8:00 PM #

  178. Me May 3, 2007 at 8:12 PM #

  179. new gnr May 4, 2007 at 3:10 AM #
