    Probably. When I see Grendels/Jennings/HiPoint at my LGS they're usually priced around $75 - $100. Which means the owner most likely got $50 for it.

    Some people must be really desperate for $50, they could have went to a gun show and gotten more.
    If all else fails, play dead!

    This stuff makes no sense at all.
    Where are the Cops when you need them? Minutes away.
    Where's your pistol, well it should be within reach or steps away.

    Town I used to live in had a cop and sheriff deputy giving away gun cable locks for free at Walmart. That was over 15 years ago. That makes more sense than buying guns. I hate when people say buy back or give back. Police never owned those guns in the first place and you don't give back to a community or people if you did not steal from them. Stupid liberal terms.

    Local Sheriff's Department is conducting an auction 2 April for FFL's
    Non crime related firearms in storage since the 50's, some real beauties.

    50 bucks for a turn in?..lol..sheep being sheep

    Want to buy firearms? Get real, make an appointment and show up with at least a six zero balance.

    Can't think of anything I have for 50, maybe a couple of common mags if I like you, maybe.

    You know, I've never considered it from the perspective, but I believe you are totally correct. The concept the "they" are buying back a gun is a pretty failed way to look at both your gun and property rights and paves the way for big government to justify having the duty to remove your rights.

    Hmm police departments buying guns from the public and yet there are a ton of police trade in pistols for sale to the public right now, too funny. It tells you that no one really believes in these programs. They are just political shams.

    I would like to know where the money comes from. Police departments complain they don't have enough money for normal everyday things in their budgets. Bloomberg or Soros organizations giving these police departments money? Like the saying goes "follow the money". Maybe this should be investigated. Corruption? Bribes? Buying favors?

    These type of people would not stoop that low to go to a gun show. It makes them feel good they turned in an evil gun.

    I don't think the money actually comes from PD budget. They're just the face, money most likely comes from the city/town budget.

    And this usually comes up right before an election and when a candidate with a "D" behind his or her name needs a boost in the polls.
    It's a political scam, it's the equivalent of someone trying to force a fumble so the other side looks bad and they can recover the ball. Desperate times and desperate measures.
    What kind of burns me is, I wonder how many times people have turned in a gun and then have become a victim of a violent crime. The criminal mindset is to cull the old and weak from a herd, don't become a victim.

    Good point. We will never know the answer to who was a victim of crime after getting rid of their guns. There are stories of people buying their first gun after being a victim. But it is not reported on.
