The Detroit Police Department gun buyback program netted 739 weapons today (8-30-2011) at Second Ebenezer Church in Detroit. Police said 376 handguns, 339 long guns and 24 assault rifles were turned in for $20,000 in cash and $8,175 in vouchers. Idiots were giving 20-25.00 for each non functioning guns. 50.00 for long guns and 100+ for assault rifles. Average price they paid for the guns was 38+ so that leads me to believe these were junk anyway. Hopefully they spent the money for ammo for the working firearms at home. Based on my back of the envelope calculations: 4-5 percent of the metro area population has a CCW. The population for the Metro area is 5,218,852. Let assume 1.5 pistols per permit holders ~ 352K LEGAL CCWs. It wouldn't be too far fetched to believe that maybe the same number have Permits but don't conceal carry so lets add 250K other pistols. Hell, lets assume that there are rifles and shot guns too. Let's say 500k of those. You know they are like Lay's potato chips, you can't have just one! Yeah those 739 are a huge dent in the Legally possessed 1 MILLION firearms in the area. W00t Bring on the Blue Helmets.
