At the bottom of this story on gun buy-back program, they announce the motive as due to 3 gun related killings.
20 firearms; 11 of which were handguns is, as they admit, a drop in the bucket. What do they really hope to do with this program? And $50 Wal-Mart gift certificates in exchange for ‘working’ guns? $1000 plus administrative costs to do nothing for a nothing problem.
