Uses Cash For NRA Camp For Kids.

 

~oh! Snap!~

 

The guns Boch turns in at the events are “mostly scrap,” he said: They’re usually old and unusable, but even the newer ones that the Guns Save Life members turned in were all “broken down, all non-firing, missing parts and pieces.” Some appeared to have been through fires or rusted beyond use, he said.
 
“They had no effective value in the grand scheme of things,” Boch said. “We went up there to trade our unwanted firearms for perfectly good cash to send young people to a National Rifle Association summer gun camp to teach them about the safe and effective use of firearms.”

Most of the guns turned in at these things are scrap.  People aren't stupid. They don't "turn in" something worth $200 for $100.  Occasionally someone might not know what some old relic is worth when getting rid of "grandpas old gun" at one of these turn-in, but the vast majority are actually worth less than the $100 they're giving.

 

So all this gun group did is participate in the buyback exactly as everybody else did.  The only difference is they put the money to an arguably better use.

You can also buy plans to build a dirt-cheap .22rf single shot pistol, designed specifically to sell at a buyback.

Will take 3D printed guns?

 

This story though sounds like it's win-win. Each side gets to feel good at doing something that doesn't solve an actual problem.

seems like standard operating procedure as I understand it.  buy backs are often (more often than not) guns that are total junk.  the money goes to whatever junkie turns in some useless crap.  at least these guys are doing something positive with the money instead of getting another fix.

Other than the fact that the funding for these things is almost always private?
