Over the weekend, Seattle cops held a gun buy-back event, where they offered gift cards of $100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles and $200 for assault weapons. At the moment, private citizens can buy and sell guns without filing paperwork, so gun collectors started working the crowd, waving wads of cash for the guns being held by those standing in line for the buy-back program. The buy-back wasn’t a total bust. The cops used up their $80,000 supply of gift cards in the first 2 hours. The Seattle PD plans to check all the guns they bought to see if any were stolen property, in which case they will try to return them to the rightful owners!
