Keep in mind that for this event, we use the term “firearms” loosely as these guns were, by and large, non-functioning scrap. Even the guns that didn’t look like they’d spent the last twenty years at the bottom of Lake Erie were frequently missing trigger groups or other significant parts. Many were little more than barreled receivers, including ten pre-1898 Mausers. Out of the sixty guns we collected, maybe a dozen would actually manage to shoot a round or two. But some of those would probably have been pretty exciting (in a dangerous way) to fire.


The write-up includes great anecdotes of hot-headed cops asking plenty of questions despite the whole "no questions asked" thing and trying to weasel their way out of paying up.


In the end, Guns Save Life netted about $5000 to be used for upcoming youth shooting events, thanks to the hard work and donations from dozens of our members.

sounds a good idea to get those dangerous (by dangerous i mean it's more lethal to the holder than the target) guns out of circulation but perhaps leave a few of the more lethal ones on street corners for the gangbangers
and the program will help clean up the streets as well

and i wonder if the police do any checks on the guns to see if they're wanted for crimes afterwards and then come looking for the owner?
