    Taste of things to come? New Jersey gun buyback program

    A gun buyback program in Camden, NJ brings in a record 1,137 guns over the weekend. Kinda' wonder if this may catch on in the near future.

    Although it seems that the biggest deterrent against instituting a large scale buyback program is the funds that would be needed in order to pull it off.

    I don't have a problem as long as it is voluntary.

    Hmmmph.

    I see one.. maybe two, "evil black guns" in that pile. I see a preponderance of wheel guns and fewer semi auto pistols. I think I saw a bit of history that will be smelted...

    Shame, that last bit.

    A gun buy-back program is a waste of time, but a politician buy-back program...now that's what I'm talking about!

    But doesn't calling it a buy-back program imply that they were the ones who sold them in the first place?
    If they don't want all these weapons on the street they should not have put them there to begin with!

    The state brought in 1,137 guns, surpassing the previous record of 700 weapons from a 2009 Essex County event. Among them were scores of rifles, shotguns and pistols, sawed-off shotguns, a century-old antique weapon, a rifle used for hunting elephants and five fully automatic weapons. Some 90 percent were in working condition. Many were illegal weapons under state laws; some were so-called community guns stashed around neighborhood. Nearly all are to be destroyed
    What happens to the rest of them???

    I wonder how many criminals sold their guns to the buy-back in Camden. My guess is none.

    If they'll buy back at full MSRP then I'm all for it. Right now I wouldnt mind trading in a few of my handguns so that I can score some cash to go buy a couple of long guns and hi-cap mags before they become extinct...

    Waste of tax money! Look at the photo there are several Mosin Nagants in the pile. You can get them for $89.00 bucks. The article said they paid $250.00 per item. Typical government program like "cash for clunkers". (green for guns or cash for colts)

    Then it went on to say when they ran out of money they gave you an IOU. What?? How trades in a rifle for an IOU????

    I guess it's a good time to unload of junk guns and get $250.

    I have ripped off gun buybacks before, and I'm proud of it.

    Wouldn't be surprised if those guns were evidence in crimes that are now untraceable. And I wonder if a stolen citizen's gun was returned, what the chances are that it will be returned to the owner.
