Police in Ridgefield, Connecticut paid $29,500 last weekend to buy 103 clunkers.
Okay, there were a couple of half-way decent guns in there… four or so.
Here’s what they paid:
$300 for a working rifle or shotgun.
$200 for a working handgun
$500 for a “post-ban” evil black rifle.
$750 for a pre-ban evil black rifle.
$20 for “high capacity” magazines.
For that kind of money, if we had known about it, we would have sent some of our members on a road trip and doubled their take of unwanted guns and brought back a nice little windfall to be used to further the cause of freedom.
Ridgefield, CT (Ridgefield Press) – You can put a price on safety.
The Ridgefield Police Department learned that this weekend when the town’s first-ever gun-buy program collected 103 firearms from residents, including four pre-ban assault rifles, Saturday at the Town Highway Department.
“It was more than we expected,” said Police Chief John Roche. “The weapons came from people in town that didn’t know what to do with them or that didn’t want to bother with registering them under the new state gun laws.
Here’s a better picture of the “haul”.
