Gun Buyback (07/28-29)

85 posts in this topic

I wonder if i could bring in my old shitty airgun? Left it in the garage for a few weeks and now its all rusty. I think it was like 120 brand new... any idea if those qualify? In NJ they ARE considered firearms?

You guys realize it's is actually us paying for this ,right? States only source of revenue is, us.

The claim is that tax funds aren't used; it's all funded by forfeiture funds seized from criminals.

But yeah, the state spends a lot to seize those funds, and in my opinion they do tend to overuse the forfeiture statute at times

And those are best spent this way?

I'm also wondering if they'll pay out for a non-functioning air rifle.


These couple that I have work. Since they're treated like real hand guns in NJ, I'm hoping they pay the same.

Nothing in up north here ? I am disappointed. I wanted to do my part in preventing gun violence and senseless mass murdering by turning in in-operable, cheap BB guns. I guess next time.
If no ID is required, how do they know the person is NJ resident ?


They can't, right?

I love how these events allow people to break a bunch of laws that would normally get any of us locked up for years without question. Screw over the people without criminal intent, but give the shitbags a day of amnesty and pay them to do it! <_< 

If you get pulled over on your way to one of these, and officer finds out you have an "assault weapon" or hand gun in your car, are they really going to let you go because you claim to be going to a buyback? Going to the churches they have set up is not an exemption under the law. I would imagine that most cops and prosecutors would love to get an "assault weapon" conviction on their resumes.

"Are they paying cash? "    Yes. Cash. No questions asked.  

In Trenton the last time the turn in was run by the Prosecutor's Office. I would assume it will be the same this time. 

Yes, there are LEO's there. Prosecutor's Detectives.

It says up to $200 per gun. How do you know the scale? Are they paying cash?

http://www.nj.gov/guns/faq.html

$100 per rifle or shotgun

$120 per handgun

$200 per "assault weapon"


Max 3 firearms purchased from any one person.

 

Hrmmmm.....

Daisy air rifle at $18.42 (+ PA Tax) = ~$81.58 gross profit:

Somebody please call the number and ask:

1) Will they be paying for bb guns or pellet guns?

2) Is there some sort of legal protection for those who will be transporting illegally, outside of the exemptions, to get their guns to the buyback?

3) If someone shows up at the buyback with a gun and decides not to accept the offer made, will they be able to take their firearm away with them - no questions asked.

My employer depends heavily on state funding and I was told a while ago to stop harassing Trenton.

    • I wouldn't laminate the papers.  I'd put them in those plastic page protectors you can get at a office supply store. You do need to use the most current forms and the best place to get them is NJSP.org. If you're not working put down unemployed on the application.  Employment is not a requirement to purchase or own firearms.  Plus it's the truth.
    • I'll have to laminate the old bring back papers, they're all but falling apart. Some of them list an old family address in WV, a few list my great grandfather's address in Philly, and a few list my other grandfather's  address here in NJ. All of whom have been gone since the early 70's or before. I stopped by the PD today, was told 'not today' 'too busy' try again later in the week. I was also told by one woman, I guess a clerk or sorts since she was not in uniform, that the papers they gave me are obsolete and won't go through, she said I can save a step by downloading them off the internet. She said they did the same thing to her son. I can see this is going to be fun and take a while. What am I supposed to put down for an employer when I'm not working right now? Not retired, not collecting,  just not working or between jobs. I haven't bothered looking while I've been dealing with all that I've been dealing with here.
    • Didn’t Glock do 19Xs in black? Thought I saw a shot of one on one of the forums... if so, you just get forward serrations? Really? I’d get the 19X in FDE just to not have them.

      Personally, I’m good without a 45. My single Glock will stick with the 30S (in .45 ) for at least the next year. I’ll probably pick up a 41 to match when I move (passed the background, going for the drug test tomorrow, so might be sooner than I thought). Only other chance is if Glock wins the CBP trials... then I’ll likely buy a 26 and a 43 (they are moving to 9mm, so I’ll have options with the two smaller guns).

      Personally, I want to see the 46 come to US market. Yea, the rotating barrel isn’t as common as other designs, but works great with my PX4. Would like to see Glock’s take on it. After that... put out a freaking Glock carbine! The Ruger is out, I know... but like the 46, I would love to see how Glock would do one. Unless their “innovation” is just making a gun previously out and assigning a new model number to it.
    • I was half expecting to see 7-10 threads saying things about withdrawal symptoms and whatnot.  Wondering how many people come here only at lunchtime, or only after dinner, and would never even know it was down for a while. Facebook page said " Forum upgrades are in progress." - so I'm guessing unplanned downtime that was taken advantage of.
