There was no amnesty for those turning in the guns. The weapons were being checked to see if they were stolen, names and addresses were jotted down and ballistics tests would also be done to see if the firearm was used in a crime.

Wonder if it was a cheaper way to catch bad guys.

IMHO, the only point to these events is propaganda. The BG's don't show up to turn in their guns. :barf:
