    Attention Jersey Residents:

    The Newark police department is now buying back "evil" firearms.

    50 dollars for rifles and shotguns.

    75 dollars for pistols and revovers.

    125 dollars for your evil assault rifles and "automatic" pistols.


    Round up your rusty old crap and get some money. There is a no questions asked policy.

    Can't get five dollars for that rusted to pieces firearm? Well the Newark PD is willing to pay good money for it. Enjoy! :D :neener:

    Hi All-

    Might be worth a roadtrip if I can gather enough junk. Will they give that kind of money for old, clapped-out BB guns and non-functioning worthless revolvers in obscure calibers? These so-called community leaders must be getting wise to firearms enthusiasts dumping scrap on them to get a few bucks? If not, it might make financial sense for me!

    Seinfeld

    Every time I hear about a gun "buyback" I can't help but think of the Seinfeld episode were Jerry and Newman load up the aluminum cans and drive to Michigan to get the $.10 refund. If you could load up a truck full of junk guns and hit Newark you could make a small fortune. :D

    I'd say go there with an FFL (as there's probably a ban on private sales in NJ) and buy anything good that might come along...

    Does Newark still look like a demilitarized zone? You know, bulletholes and razor wire?

    They can't "BUY BACK" what was never theirs in the first place.

    I recall that the Newark PD repeatedly bought back a pristine World War I Luger. Bought it over and over again.

    Seems that the pistol made its way to the police property room, then disappeared from there and back onto the streets. Not once, but several times over the course of several years.

    Eventually BATFE stepped in and stopped the practice. A couple of cops took early retirement.

    That was Kramer and Newman, and you're right, a classic.

    You give them too much credit for brainpower. Wonder if you could make a huge batch of homemade guns (legally, with appropriate licensing) for under $5 a piece, and dump them all for a tidy profit - I'd wet myself with glee if someone could actually pull this off. And, is the "buyback" actually open to non-residents?

    Yes, the Newman/Kramer Michigan bottle roadtrip scheme episode is a hilarious classic - and good analogy. :D

    Legally, BB guns are defined as firearms in NJ.

    Be interesting to get them on tape either buying them, because of their implie evil, or refusing to buy them. Either way, they'll look like the damned fools they are. :)

    Oh Man !!!! I've got two pieces of cr@p in the back of safe that I've been holding onto for one of these "buyback" programs. I'd get $175 if I was in Jersey, that's alot of reloading supplies.

    Oh well, maybe time to send an e-mail to the Chicago do-gooders touting the "success" of this one and see if they'll have one.


    I'll be first in line, sell mine and then go setup a table to "prescreen" the rest. :D

    Hi All-

    Seriously speaking, if one were to visit one of these events with clapped-out and rusted pieces of junk, would they pay the money without laughing or even getting angry? I've inherited sidearms from family that were previously gifts from a friend of a friend that aren't worth $75.00 for a whole box of 'em...much less a single firearm.

    Would it be morally wrong to fellow taxpayers to take my worthless junk to one of these events and walk away with a couple hundred bucks?

    Not only do I not think it would be wrong, I think it is just about your duty to cheat idiots like this out of their money.

    The more expensive gun control is, and the less results it produces, the harder it will be to make a case for it.

    ETA: Don't a lot of pistols have a dealer cost below $75? What if a jennings dealer showed up with 1000 brand new jennings and made ten bucks each?

    You can use these buys backs as a way to finance some expensive toys -- while living in Sacramento - they had a buyback the same weekend as a gun show so I went to the show and bought up a bunch of Junk inoperative guns and then took them to the buy back well I sold each of these pieces of scrap metal to them for 100 each -- ended up buying a sig 220 and the original investment was only 60 bucks

    I think Jersey residents would benefit from this "buyback". I don't know if out of staters could cash in. The Newark PD asks that the guns be taped up thoroughly so how would they know the condition of the guns?

    As there is a "no questions aked" policy I guess you could drive in with clunkers. I would not do it with any pistols though as it still is Jersey. ;) :D

    Ahhh Jersey ..... :D The "**********" of the east.

    How will the PD know the evil from the good guns? Will there be priests standing by to make these determinations?

    Priests can be fooled. I, for example, am fairly stealthy in my evil, and priests don't pick up on that when out on the street.

    Whenever I step into a church, however, the church bursts into flames, and that usually gives me away.

    Therefore, I think you need to carry each gun into a church, one at a time, and if the church bursts into flames, that's a gun you buy back. All other guns should be returned to their owners, along with a certification of non evil, so they don't have to repeat the excercise @ the next buyback..
