The Bronx is expanding its successful gun buyback program to include -- for the first time in the city -- BB and air guns, officials announced yesterday.

Although not normally lethal, BB and air guns sometimes are used by criminals to scare victims into thinking the weapons are conventional, deadly handguns.

People who surrender such weapons Jan. 23 at several churches in The Bronx will be given a $50 gift or cash card for each BB gun turned in, up to a $150 cap.

The churches will also accept regular guns.

BB guns retail for between $40 and $60.


Awesome. A $50 BB gun sold for $100. That's 100% return!!!!! Can't beat that.

Granted, the article does say "up to" $150 but how many trust politicians/city officials/community leaders to be wise with money?

Whew! Just in time too! Those daisy red riders post a true menace to society at large. No doubt a mexican drug cartel would be happy to be thus armed. At least the bronx will be safe!

Explanation: IMO [I can't access your link. my bad not the links] the $150 cap might just refer to the maximum you'll get for handing in multiple air/BB guns with each gun at $50 a pop!

Personal Disclosure: If they are paying way over 100% of the original purchase price then that really is something and on more levels than just the financial incentive. Methinks with bait that enticing that its a TRAP of somekind!

Edited for gramma.
