Gun Buyback (07/28-29)

Recommended Posts

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.

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

Why aren't these buybacks robbed? Massive amounts of guns and cash in one place... How many cops are there running these?

"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.

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 used to fly out of Newark with some regularity with handguns, but it's been at least 10 years.   I'd get there plenty early, and bring with me copies of the airline policy on checking guns, and the Federal law that backed up the airline policy...because occasionally you'd get a ticket agent who was convinced that it couldn't possibly be legal, and you need to be able to convince them that they need to check with a supervisor instead of just telling you 'no'.   But usually it was straightforward, at least back then. Assuming they still use the orange 'Firearm' tags that you sign certifying the gun is unloaded, etc, those tags go INSIDE the suitcase.  Many years ago they had to go on the outside, which was like a big fluorescent 'Steal Me' sign on your suitcase.   That policy changed to inside-the bag quite a while ago, but you don't want the one agent who didn't get the memo to put it on the outside of your bag. I wonder if shipping the air pistol is an option?  NJ would probably consider it illegal, as they pretend it's a real gun, but wherever you are going almost certainly knows better...and the Feds don't care.   But that might leave you with the problem of getting it back into NJ, if that is your intent.  If it's a one-way trip for the air pistol and if you aren't too far from PA, I'd consider driving across the border and mailing the gun, especially if you can use a non-NJ address for the return address. It IS legal to ship long guns to yourself...not sure about handguns.  USPS and UPS both allowed it, though again the counter clerk will be convinced you can't do it, and someone is going to have to look up the law for them.   Shipping to yourself, if you are physically present from where it is sent, and then are physically present to receive, is legal because it is NOT a transfer.
    • When I lived in NJ, I flew out of Philly many times with a rifle/handgun. No issues at all.    Follow the advice on the airline website. You’ll need a hard sided, lockable case. Do NOT use TSA locks.    You will be required to open your case and display the weapon is clear.  You will fill out a form, which will be locked inside the case.  TSA may or may not desire to inspect the case and/or the bag the case is inside. That’s up to them. 
    • I have to fly out of Newark to Denver on United later in the month with a Handgun.  Hard to get solid advice and impossible to get through to United customer service.  It is actually an air pistol.  I was advised to fly out of Philly, it is a non issue there, but I had to book out of Newark.  I was told to ask someone who has done it before and value their advise.  I figured this would be the best place to start.  Thanks for any help. John
