Unfreaking believable!

this is going to spread across the whole country like wildfire.

So tell me this: how exactly do you tell an illegal gun from a legal one?

And I'm sure they will just surrender their weapons without any resistance.

You know.... I predicted it would start at $500 per weapon based on a citizen report. I really REALLY hate being right sometimes. I sure didn't expect bounty programs to start THIS soon. Wow.... We've seen the future and the future is a bad place to be.

...and people thought he was a decent guy, eh? Newark's crime rate is...yeah...something to behold. What an idea. Lets disarm the few decent people still in the city with a means of defense.

does this mean i can trade my $600 gun to them and get $1000?

You see something say something

All decades are known for something, the "10's" will be known for snitching on your neighbors.

Deal and better than Seattle, which just announced $100 per pistol, $200 per "assault" rifle for people "scared" of having a gun in the house:

“What we’re talking today is the unwanted gun. The gun in your home, the gun in your business. Folks are scared of that gun. It’s a time bomb waiting to go off,” Metz said. ”This is just one strategy of many, this is making sure that that one gun that’s turned in does not destroy a life.”

The first buyback program will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 26 in the parking lot beneath Interstate 5 between Cherry and James Streets, in downtown Seattle. McGinn said they have had about $75,000 in contributions from local companies to help pay for the guns. Participating companies include: Amazon, the Seattle Police Foundation, PEMCO, 5 Point Café and Big Mario’s Pizza and SEOMoz.

People will receive a $100 gift card in exchange for handguns, shotguns and rifles. A gift card for up to $200 will be given for assault weapons, according to a City of Seattle news release.

I think the gun tip line has been there for years.

You can pretty much report any crime for cash though, not just illegal guns...

Anyone with information about any crime in Newark is urged to call the Department’s 24-hour “Crime Stoppers” anonymous tip line at 877 NWK-TIPS (877 695-8477) or 877 NWK-GUNS (877 695-4867). Tips leading to arrests and indictments could result in cash rewards of up to $2,000 to the person who provides the information or $1,000 per gun for calls into the gun hot line.

What exactly is an illegal gun? I have guns that were passed down to me from family members. Are those illegal? I've also bought guns from other citizens. Are those illegal?

This won't work .. anyone from Jersey will tell you ..nobody likes a snitch ..!
After the first few snitches and rats are found dead ..Sicilian style .. the others will get the message ..

Shoot, i'd buy a assault rifle for $200, i'd even give them
more for it.
Hmmm let's see a $1200 to $3000 gun for $200
ya, that sounds like a great trade...

Pro or anti gun stance, that is just a stupid move on anyone's
part to trade a gun for that cheap.

What will be the plan to cure the whole sale killing that will begin of any one is considered a snitch?

I suspect that will be low priority.

Maybe they can use the money they make fishing bodies out of rivers and lakes???

And so it begins the new "bad" topic of the day. History of this country is loaded with them, going all the way back to the start of the country:

At one time it was the French, then the Catholics, or any who did not follow your religious beliefs. Then it moved to another group, native Americans, and slave owners. Irish, German, Jewish, Polish, Italanians, Chinese, Japaneses, Vietnamese. People who fit in, people who did not fit in, thin people, non thin people, the military and those who were against the military, men, women and children. Gay people, muslim people and then Smoking. Course you can't just stop there, no how about those people who eat at or even work at say fast food, like McDonalds, communist, and socialist. All of these in a long line that now comes to gun owners and all around the rights of the individual.

Just another hate fade, give it time and the next one will be right up to be the next bad thing.

Something like this makes me want to go and purchase a firearm.

Good point.

Perhaps these programs are in place to serve more than one purpose.

Some of the best sources of information are criminals giving up other criminals because they know who are carrying guns.
