New York City INT 892-2023, This bill would require the Police Department to establish a monthly gun buy-back program, whereby individuals may voluntarily and anonymously surrender to the department a working or non-working unloaded gun or parts thereof, in exchange for a sum of money to be determined by the department upon surrender. Individuals surrendering a gun would not be required to provide identification or any personally identifiable information, and would not be subject to criminal or civil penalties for the illegal possession of such gun, unless such penalties are required by local, state or federal laws, rules or regulations. The gun buy-back program would take place in a different borough at least once each month, on a rotating basis.

What we should do, is find a forum member that can print up that stuff from computer thing.
Take up a forum wide collection, for materials, and just keep turning them in…. Clean them out, bankrupt their program.
Doesn’t really solve anything, but we may find a bit of revenge satisfaction…. 😝

"would not be subject to criminal or civil penalties for the illegal possession of such gun, unless such penalties are required by local, state or federal laws, rules or regulations."

Interesting. Since the NYS Penal Code, as well as some federal law, does specify required penalties, for unlicensed possession, are they hoping to pick up some tryly stupid perps or are the polits really that stupid? Probably both.

Either they hope people won't notice that fine print and will eventually get arrested, or the people that wrote this don't understand words. I'm guessing the latter.

Unfortunately, they already got burned on that exact same idea.
