    If there funding is low why not make sure the serial numbers are clear. Clean the guns up and sell them at auction to law abiding citizens just looking for a deal....oops that actually makes sense....

    Uh, 1 inch = 25.4 mm, so 32 mm = slightly over 1 1/4 inches.
    We are always poking fun at the ignorant media.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    I'm guessing it was a .32 acp = mousegun.

    I would pay money to see someone fire a 32 millimeter handgun - as long as it's not someone I know and love. lol

    I saw that on the front page of the Times Union. I wonder how many criminals turned in their guns?

    Years ago I was at a "gun surrender" in Newark NJ. People were bringing in all sorts of guns for $50 AmEx gift cards. They took in around 200 guns during the weekend.

    From what I saw most were junk, and most were turned in by women and minors. I do remember some moron turned in a perfect looking Glock 19, and another turned in a Sig 225 that looked pretty nice........ the rest were just crap guns from what I could tell. Old revolvers and shotguns mostly......

    Several "no name" looking polymer autos, must have been 50 of those things in a pile and not ONE of them looked to be worth a darn...

    Gun turn in's are nothing more than a "feel good-do nothing" exercise for the sheep.
