[snip] On Wednesday, the LAPD collected 2,037 guns including handguns, rifles, assault weapons and one rocket launcher. In total, these buybacks have pulled in about 10,000 California guns since the program began in 2009.
While officials are celebrating these programs and saying that these events will make California streets safer, gun sales there have shot up significantly in the past 10 years. In 2002, 350,000 guns were sold in California, but last year, over 600,000 were sold. So a couple thousand guns were turned in last week, but thats nothing compared to the hundreds of thousands bought last year alone. Whats also telling is the overall ( drop in crime) that corresponded to the increase in gun sales:
Gun deaths and injuries have dropped sharply in California, even as the number of guns sold in the state has risen, according to new state data
. During that same period, the number of California hospitalizations due to gun injuries declined from about 4,000 annually to 2,800, a roughly 25 percent drop, according to hospital records collected by the California Department of Public Health.
