    NJ Gun Buyback Program Returns with Cash Infusion

    Not clear how the program is run. Do they check to see if a gun being turned in has been reported stolen so they can reunite it with its owner, for instance? Or does this just encourage criminals to steal more guns to turn in? So much for climate change in NJ now that the current governor has been voted out. This prosecutor was nominated by the governor-elect to be the new attorney general!

    NJ Gun Buyback Program Returns with Cash Infusion


    NEWARK, N.J. (AP/ 1010 WINS) -- They're exchanging guns for cash again in Essex County.

    A gun buyback program was suspended last month after local authorities burned through the $50,000 allocated for the program in the first two days. Anyone turning in a gun was given $200.


    Steve Sandberg reports

    Essex County Prosecutor Paula Dow, recently nominated by Gov.-elect Chris Christie to be state attorney general, said she reallocated $75,000 seized from criminals to reinstate the gun buyback program.

    Dow said she will encourage other county prosecutors to run similar programs.

    Newark Police Director Garry McCarthy said more than 100 guns had been turned in Thursday morning at two churches in the city. Guns also were being accepted at churches in Irvington and East Orange.

    The criminals don't turn in guns. Law abiding citizens with unwanted guns turn them in.
    Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
