Question I was wondering about these events....When they have these things, do they HAVE to melt down every one? Someone brings in thier granddad's Colt 1911 he used in the Pacific, and they MELT IT DOWN FOR A RALPHS GIFT CARD :eek::eek::eek:!?!?? Or if someone brings in a newer Glock, M & P, Etc, can any of the cops running these things buy a gun they like for themselves?

All for a $100 or $200 gift card. What a waste.

I know I'm gonna sound like a troll, but If someone wants to sell their property for a discount I don't see anything wrong with. To some groceries are more important than a firearm. Sure they could find a private seller but some wouldn't even know how to go about it. I know my grandma for example wouldn't, or go through the necessary means to find out. Plus peices like that sawed off revolvers should be melted lol.

They showed a couple ar15's on the news but who knows if those really got turned in or if those are staged to make people think they should turn theirs in.

Do people really think that those guns are the ones that criminals use to commit crimes? All those are crappy pistols anyway.

Would it be illegal to hold a sign up accross the street saying you'll pay more for the same guns?

er, is it even possible to melt zinc into manhole covers (or do they just install them in the real bad parts of town and utilize them as a form of pit trap...)?

Would it be illegal to hold a sign up across the street saying you'll pay more for the same guns?

I was thinking about this myself. I certainly wouldn't want to purchase any of those saturday night specials, but if something good came in:D

The PD would definitely be pissed, but would it technically be illegal?

Hmm buy a Mosin for 80.00 - turn it in and get 200.00 - hmmm could be a way to get quick positive ROI

All guns that are turned in will be logged. It cannot be disappeared. Many guns are also turned in by widows who do not want guns in the house.


My concern is "no questions asked" policy. Some crime guns will be turned in, and it will be destroyed. The crime may never be solved.
