LA buyback yields Anti-tank rocket

Los Angeles Police Department’s annual weapons amnesty buyback program:

“About 600 to 700 guns were surrendered citywide in just the first hour, according to LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman. Since the program started in 2009, more than 6,200 guns have been collected.”

“Those turning in handguns and shotguns got a $100 gift card…an Egyptian-made AK-47…with a 75-round drum…netted $200”LAPD Chief beck holds anti-tank rocket launcher

791 handguns, 527 rifles and 302 shotguns were retrieved from the program, a 4 year low.  $200K in donations from local businesses provided the incentive.
