I’ll bet that not many guns used in crimes were turned in. I would think the perp would be to paranoid to show up at the gun destruction center to turn them in. The gun would be in a dumpster or a river.

These gun buy-back programs offer complete amnesty for any weapons used in crimes. Why take the chance of it being found in a dumpster when you can be assured of its destruction by law enforcement?

Assuming that you believe the promises. I recall at least one case where the promise was reneged on. I can not give you a source, but I would not place my freedom at risk by relying on such a promise.

You and I know that, but perps don’t trust cops.
