    Press Release

    Amnesty Program Takes 900 Guns out of Circulation in Yonkers

    Yonkers, N.Y. August 31, 2006)-- One of the most
    successful gun buy back programs in the country
    came to an end earlier this week after nearly 900
    firearms were collected by the Yonkers Police
    Department through a month-long Gun Amnesty
    Program offered by Mayor Phil Amicone.

    The anonymous, no questions asked program offered
    cash in return for guns—$200 per handgun, $100
    per long gun—and gave city residents an easy way
    to get dangerous weapons out of their houses and off the streets.

    “This is a small but significant victory in our
    continuing battle to get illegal guns off our
    streets,” said Amicone who has been a vocal
    leader in a national effort to combat the flow of
    illegal weapons into America’s cities. “By no
    means is our work finished, but we can take some
    measure of satisfaction in knowing that there are
    almost 900 guns that will never be used in crimes against our citizens.”

    The number of firearms collected totaled 890, of
    which 596 were handguns and 296 were shotguns or
    rifles. The city spent $147,700 on the program.

    Amicone paid credit to State Senator Nick Spano
    who contributed a $25,000 grant to offset city
    expenses. “Senator Spano, as he always does, came
    through with much needed funding for an important
    public safety initiative here in Yonkers. I want
    to thank him, and all of the police offers, Parks
    Department employees and Yonkers residents who
    participated in this worthwhile effort.”

    Results of the program were announced at a City
    Hall press conference on Thursday at which the
    mayor and Police Commissioner Robert Taggart
    detailed numerous city initiatives to quell
    heightened violence in the southwest portion of Yonkers.

    Commissioner Taggart issued the following update
    on police activities in the Third Precinct and
    Fourth Precincts which covers the southwest and west sections of Yonkers.

    *Gun Amnesty Buy Back Program: 890 guns taken out
    of circulation and off the streets through a
    city-sponsored gun buy back program.

    Dammit, I wish they would do that here in NC. I've got an RG .22 that I would gladly let go for $200.

    funny to think how these anti gunners are sitting thinking how they are doing such a great service disarming the people and at the same time all the gun people are turning in their crap, taking the money and buying new guns, :)

    With all of the nearby places that have dozens of handguns on their racks for around $100 I could make bank at one of these things. I dunno if I'd want to support those gun grabbing fucks, though. They get to spend other people's money to get publicity for themselves. That really pisses me off.

    I guess it would be okay as long as you made several hundred dollars and took all that money and spent it on trhe type of gun that they think is way overkill or that noone would ever need.

    For instance build an AR cheap and get a beta mag
    Or build a semi auto gun from a machine gun parts kit

    You get rid of the guns that noone wants and bring the cool ones back to life

    The problem with that is they're still spouting off at the media "Look at all of the guns we took off the streets!!!11"

    Now if you could get the media to run a story about how you turned in a dozen cheap guns and then turned around and bought a .50 cal or something then it would be classic ownage and you would surely become a hero overnight :rofl:

    Are there any buybacks that allow you to bring in multiple guns but still pay you for each one?

    Or you trade the old widows WWII 1911's for your crap guns!

    And then go home with the cool, working ones.

    Imagine trading the old lady a Raven .25 for a Garand? She thinks she is making an extra $100, and you are making an extra $600.

    My dad knows a bottom feeder gun collector/trader that goes to these, and walks up to each person in line and says what you got? Looks at it quickly. Then either walks away or makes an offer thats just a little over the buyback value. He does this multiple times.

    I guess theres nothing wrong with it. :dunno:
    May piss of the vagass fags that are running it and think they will single handedly get rid of all guns :mamoru:

    :dunno: Wouldn't call that a bottomfeeder. The people in line with anything decent don't know AND don't care what they have if they resort to a buyback instead of taking it to a dealer or trying to sell it outright.

    No. Hes a greedy weasel that would cheat his own friends out of a gun to make a profit.

    He just does the whole buyback thing from time to time.

    Not really. Make 80 dollars on a rifle when you could make 100-120 on a nagant revolver.
