    In an Effort to Further Reduce Firearm Violence in DC, the MPDC Announces New Gun Buy-Back Program

    Cash will be paid for weapons collected at three district stations on September 16
    As part of its continuing push to further reduce gun violence by getting illegal firearms out of homes and off the streets, the Metropolitan Police Department is holding a day-long gun buy-back on Saturday, September 16. Residents of the District of Columbia, as well as certain neighboring jurisdictions, will be eligible to receive up to $100 in cash for each operational firearm they turn in to police that day.
    The initiative is funded by $250,000 earmarked by the DC Council during its July special session in which Councilmembers overwhelmingly approved emergency legislation to help combat crime.
    The gun buy-back will take place on September 16, 2006, from 9 am to 7 pm, at three locations: First District Station, 415 4th St., SW; Sixth District Station, 100 42nd St., NE, and Seventh District Station, 2455 Alabama Ave., SE.
    Only residents of the District of Columbia, as well as Prince George’s and Montgomery counties in Maryland, and Arlington County and the city of Alexandria in Virginia, are eligible to participate in the program. All participants must display proof that they reside in one of the eligible jurisdictions. Absolutely no payments will be made to gun dealers from any jurisdiction.
    Payments will be based on the type and operational condition of the weapon surrendered, as follows:
    $100 for assault-style rifles and automatic/semi-automatic pistols
    $50 for revolvers, Derringers, rifles and shotguns
    $10 for air/BB/pellet guns

    No payments will be made for firearms that are inoperable. Payments will be limited to no more than 10 weapons per individual.
    "The goal of our latest gun buy-back is simple and straightforward: to reduce the number of needless injuries and senseless deaths that are the result of firearm violence," said Chief of Police Charles H. Ramsey. "By taking literally hundreds of firearms out of homes and off the streets in one day, we are hoping to bring down the number of armed offenses, accidental shootings and suicide attempts that occur in our city with far too much frequency," he added.
    Between August 1999 and December 2000, the MPDC conducted three separate
    gun buy-backs, in which more than 6,200 firearms were recovered. Through the first eight months of this year, the MPDC had already recovered 1,616 firearms, a 3 percent increase from the same period of 2005.
    Note: Members of the news media who are interested in covering one of the buy-back locations on September 16 should contact the Public Information Office at (202) 727-4383, for information and guidelines.

    Hell, if they only give $100 for the good guns it would be well worth it to go and buy some from the suckers who show up.

    Anyone who is willing to sell a perfectly good gun for well under value, and to gun control activists none the less, you dont deserve to own a gun.

    Its just to show the community they have no other ideas at this point in time.

    Not to mention you could sell your gun on the street to the wrong people for 3x those amounts.

    When are these idiots going to learn that buybacks don't take dangerous guns off the streets.

    So, they're going to take guns NOT ONLY from their own citizens(who aren't supposed to have them anyway), but any nearby citizens as well. Isn't that kind of them. Fuck DC, Fuck MD.

    Edit: Fuck any VA resident that crosses the line INTO DC to trade away a gun (wouldn't they be breaking the law the moment they entered the district with a firearm?) to the gun-grabbers.

    I like how they put in that they wouldn't make payments to gun dealers or for non-working firearms. :rofl:

    Just like there are guns in LA, Chicago and New York. It's all the rest of the country's fault that there is crime in those cities because we make it so easy for criminals to get guns :mamoru:.

    of course it is our violent gun packing ways that allow for such things to happen in big cities like that. Well except New York they have a suprisingly low crime rate.
