    How can they "buyback" that which they never owned in the first place? If I could find some Liberal idiots paying $500 a gun I've got a handful of stuff I could give them and then my a Wilson or a Ed Brown.

    I dont get why they call it a buy back. I just know they are about to get me an upgrade.

    $500. per gun ?....... Wow. Are they new at this? Don't they realize that most guns that show up at buy backs have outlived their useful lives and are pretty much junk? Although most buy backs don't give anywhere near that kind of money. Perhaps at 500 bucks each they could get some better guns coming in, but it's going to cost them dearly. I suppose if they want to get more guns off the streets, then paying more will get more coming in. I've even got a couple they could have for $500. each but they aren't out on the streets; they're in my gun safe. Let's see;....... Two guns = $1000. toward my next gun purchase.

    Heck, for $500 I'd sell off a couple I have and end up with the same guns plus cash.

    If this is for real then I could see it as a very profitable money making opportunity!

    Sort of like "Cash for Clunkers" only with guns instead of cars!

    Crap journalism. Too few details.

    I guarantee I could not turn in 20, $50 in value, single shot shotguns or 22s for $10,000 cash. I have dozens of cheap guns like that. I bet many others do, too.

    I have an old, busted single-shot shotgun that I'm holding onto just in case there's a buyback near me.

    Whose money is offering this? It says the administration. Private money is one thing. Public money is obviously a complete waste.

    criminals can get rid of the very evidence needing to convict them.

    Here's the link to her post on Facebook announcing this. You don't need a Facebook account to watch it. If anybody is in Louisiana you should attend this. Anybody know what the legalities are of non resident's "selling" to police departments? Are they the same as private sale or are they like a dealer? This would be worth flying down there with a bunch of stuff.
