 Gun Buyback Program

In my town where possessing handguns is illegal, the police periodically conduct a gun buyback program designed to get guns off the streets.

During the gun buyback, citizens can bring in any firearm and receive a cash payment of $50.00; no questions asked.  What is typically turned in is the Saturday Night Special, an inexpensive handgun with poor accuracy, and an original cost of no more than $100.00.

Over one thousand firearms were turned-in the first time.  The program has been so successful that every few years the police department repeats it.  Knowing this, citizens wait for the police department gun buyback to upgrade their illegal firearms.

Psalms 127:1 (KJV) 1Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
