    Maybe this is common knowledge, if it is then I have no problem with this thread being obliterated.

    Anyway, I was looking at some New Hampshire firearms laws and came across this interesting tid-bit:
    http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/XII/159/159-mrg.htm

    So if I'm reading this correctly, it would be unlawful to operate any of the gun "buy back" programs, so loved by the anti crowd, in NH. Cool.

    Any other states where it is illegal to operate a "surrender and destroy" gun turn-in program?

    I disagree.

    Buybacks are voluntary, and they do destroy the guns (at least as far as I know), but they're not asking you to "surrender" your weapon. They're asking you to "sell" you're weapon.

    It's treated differently under the law I'll bet.

    It also says "no state agency", nothing about local government conducting "voluntary surrender and destroy" programs.

    Who is it that usually operates the turn-ins then? I thought they were usually state agencies... Guess I misunderstood... Nevermind then.
