Gun buy back announced for Monmouth Co.

Recommended Posts

I've thought about doing this as well. However, as an FFL it would actually be more difficult for me to purchase long guns than a private citizen. They would have to come back to my location.

 

Wonder how long the local pd would allow you to operate there?

Gonna go check out the Asbury one before work, bring a few COEs with me. The link for the article is below...

"pellet and BB guns may be surrendered at the locations but there will be no compensation for those items, he said."

 

But some are now listed under the assault weapons ban...why aren't they offering compensation for those air rifles?  If they are so bad that we can't own them, they should be very important for the state to get them off the streets, right? 

Agenda exposed...

Every time these come up I wonder if I should go clean-out the crap and dump it on the state for more than its worth...

 

Has anyone actually done this?  Taken some crappy .25, or a rusted-out shotgun to one of these events?

I don't see the problem. Its essentially the same thing as meeting face to face to buy a shotgun or rifle as example. If its a problem, I'll just leave.

I've heard of people building the Home Depot special shotguns and turning them in for more money than they spent at the store.  But before they used to offer more money for shotguns and rifles.  For only $25 it isn't even worth the effort of me driving to Home Depot to even think about building one.

As an FFL, you may purchase firearms from anyone and anywhere across the USA. Disposition must be made at your premise location.

Rumson could be interesting (a few guys are probably going to collapse when they see the news photos of what their ex-wives disposed of for a few bucks) but I doubt the PD would allow buyers to set up in their parking lot.

I've thought about setting up and buying a few things, but I can't imagine the PD being too happy about it.  Sometimes it's better not to kick the hornet's nest.

Almost seems like an incentive for thieves to steal from gun owners if they know one of these is coming up!? I mean if you steal a few guns and then turn them in for cash with no questions asked ......Quote below is from the linked article:

 

“No questions asked and get cash back: that is the philosophy behind our gun buyback program. Residents can bring in weapons to either of the two locations we have established without fear of getting in trouble,” Gramiccioni said.

 

I wonder if there has ever been a study that looks at burglaries where firearms were stolen that correlate to the timing of these "no questions asked" buy backs.  Just a (slightly paranoid?) thought.

Hmmmmm. The Luger might have been worth a few bucks....

 

Isn't the Mossberg 500 Bullpup NJ legal? I didn't see it on the Evil List. Probably worth a couple bucks, since Mossberg stopped making them, and there really wasn't anything wrong with the design.

 

Wouldn't the owner have had 180 days to sell the Colt AR15 out of state now that Christie signed A3796? Again, that's worth a few bucks.

 

$2000+ up in smoke?

I think you're right, we should be in an amnesty period right now. I think anyone with banned rifle should be good to send it off to safety, including the Colt AR15, the M1 Carbine, or even the super evil old-school fullsized-magazine Marlin 60.

    • https://www.arspur.com/ My suggestion.
    • Your imagined use case is not the one I'm trying to solve.  
    • I ordered a "Primary Arms SLx Compact 1x20 Prism Scope w/ACSS Cyclops" it's meant for ar/ak's and is excellent for mild or severe astigmatism. They also have a 3x version as well, but i just wanted a 1x for mostly cqb situations. All of these can be used with magnifiers and most have night vision options, Other options for people with eye issues are: Cyclops (Primary Arms) Vortex Spitfire 1x Swamp Fox Blade prism scope 1x Sig Bravo 5 (a little more pricey than the others)  
    • Keep the pistol grip.  You don't need anything at the muzzle.
    • My apologies for the long post.  Hi everyone, it’s great to join you in this community as I venture into building my first AR here in Jersey. I’ve had many questions satisfied along the way, but one keeps me running in circles. Hopefully some of you can shed some light on this topic... For reference once again, here’s the law on what constitutes an assault rifle in NJ: A semi-automatic rifle that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least two of the following: (1) A folding or telescoping stock; (2) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon; (3) A bayonet mount; (4) A flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and (5) A grenade launcher; Here’s my situation: Before our rifles with detachable magazines can be considered illegal, we are allowed 1 of these 5 features. All these features are listed together and are of equal legality as long as ONLY ONE is present on the rifle. With this in mind, I am working on an 18” precision build which I intend to use primarily at both, outdoor Pennsylvania ranges and indoor NJ ranges. I’d need to switch from a comp/brake to a linear comp when shooting indoors in NJ, so permanently affixing a muzzle device on my barrel wouldn’t be the best option. My buddy in PA would have a pistol grip I can install out there, this way I am not in possession of, nor travel with parts to create an assault weapon within NJ - keeping all within the law.  So naturally, the question here is - keeping the threaded muzzle as the one legally present feature on my rifle, what can I install in the pistol grip portion of the rifle that would not be considered a pistol grip according to NJ law? The law defines a pistol grip as “a well defined handle, similar to that found on a handgun, that protrudes conspicuously below the action of the weapon, and which permits the firearm to be held and fired with one hand.” The one idea I have is to install a Sparrow Dynamics grip along with a Magpul fixed stock which makes it impossible to grasp with one hand - pictured below is the stock with the adapter for a sling plate, I’d keep the straight adapter on instead (see image w red arrow) which does not allow a notch for the possible slip of a thumb around the grip.  And yes, I am willing to sacrifice my shooting comfort in NJ to enjoy real freedom in PA.  Please let your wisdom and opinions rip fellas, and thank you in advance. God bless.
