You know who didn’t give their guns away to a church for $250 and the feeling of doing something for the greater good? Criminals.
Not trying to sound like a pessimist or unsensitive but it seems like common knowledge that anybody whose job requires a gun (thief, drug dealer, etc) wouldn’t be as quick to give up the one piece of equipment that could be the difference between life or death.
Also, can you imagine how many murder weapons are sitting in that pile? What better way to toss aside the illegal six shooter you used to shoot Frankie OweDollars last February without the cops doing too much background work? After a little rubdown with the Lysol…seems like a no brainer to me.
AND they’re giving away $250 now? That’s a lot of money — where did it come from? Hell, I bet for that much crackheads were breaking into homes stealing guns just to give them away. Probably had a whole Camden middleman gun operation being run with people going door to door holding up strangers demanding their firearms.
Call me cynical if you want, but Camden + shady expensive gun buyback program =
