    Man Brings Live Hand Grenade to Gun Buyback Event

    NEW YORK It was a gun buyback not a bomb buyback.

    New York City police were holding a suspect Saturday who they say tried to turn in a live hand grenade to police at a gun-buyback program in the Bronx.

    Authorities say the NYPD's bomb squad responded to a church where guns were being collected at around 4:30 p.m. and left 15 minutes later with the grenade, carrying it out in a special carrier. The program offers $200 for guns, no questions asked.

    Police were questioning the man, who they didn't immediately identify. It's not clear if he will face any charges.

    So much for 'no questions asked'.

    Apparently the promoters of the even just didn't spell things out clearly enough. I guess there's no harm in trying though.

    Good thing the cops didn't just throw this one into the giant furnace with the rest of the guns!

    Come on. Grenades are easy to get rid of. Just pull the pin and throw.

    $200 for any gun, no questions asked? Wow, I wish they would do that in Texas. Sounds like a money making proposition to me.

    A grenade is not a gun. However, in some places it might be a fishing device.

    Funny. Most buybacks I've heard of will take just about anything, no questions asked. I think there was even a guy around here who turned in an RPG launcher.

    Wonder where they get these things from!
