North Las Vegas to Host Gun Surrender Program

(Nov. 29) -- North Las Vegas police and several businesses are planning a no-questions-asked gun surrender on Saturday.

The program allows people who don't want their guns anymore to turn them in for a gift certificate from Wal-Mart -- that's $100 for rifles, 50 dollars for handguns and $10 for B-B guns.

No one bringing guns in from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart at Craig Road and Clayton will be identified.

The collected weapons will be destroyed. Police say the idea is to prevent guns from being stolen or lost, and used in a crime.

If you ask real nice, they might give you $125 for the 50.

Let's see, $50 bucks for a handgun...

If I were a criminal, it would be perfectly feasible that I could acquire more than $50 with a single mugging. If I were to force a person to an ATM machine, $300 is within reason. This doesn't seem like a fair marketable price for a criminal to turn in a handgun.

I would be willing to turn over the amount of $0.59~$3.54 to any armed criminal in the form of Federal HydraShok 230gr .45ACP. Of course, the ammo would be handed over at approximately 850fps, so I hope they can catch...

And......... It well make a scratch in the surface of guns on the street because all they ever usually collect in those things is broken antiques that Grandma had after Grandpa owned before he died, but then again I bet some good old stuff goes to the dumper as well.

Where's those Century five-for-U-Fixem specials at?
You could finance a complete Vegas weekend with a few of those :D

Californians mess up their state and can't live there. They then move to other areas seeking a better life. Amazingly, they then bring in the same approaches that ruined their home state.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Yeah, too bad I'm too far away. I've got a MN M44 that is missing parts, has absolutely no rifling left and a cracked stock I got as part of a 5fer deal from Century. Hmmmmm....I think it was $29.99. I'd be glad to trade it off for $100 from Wally-mart. Think "Heny .22", only $189...means you'd have to come up with around $100 more dollars.
Or how about that old broken .22 marlin model 60? Or that broken never-was-any-good Iver johnson .32 S&W "suicide special" that is missing parts made from unobtanium?
A buy back on ........BB Guns? What? Now come on. How many crimes are commited with BB guns? I understand the twisted logic of gun buy backs, but BB gun buy backs?
I forsee a LOT of broken BB guns showing up there.
