If you can profit from a buyback program to upgrade your home defense firearm why not…
A woman in Baltimore is using the city’s gun buyback program, not to get firearms off the street but to upgrade to a better weapon.
On Monday, the city’s Police Department paid gun owners anywhere from $25 to $500 for their unwanted firearms and magazines in an attempt to get weapons off the street, FOX 45 News reported.
By 5:30 p.m., more than 500 firearms had been collected.
The city paid out $25 for rifle magazines that carry more than 10 rounds, $100 for revolvers, and pump and bolt-action weapons. $200 for semi-automatic weapons and $500 for fully automatic weapons.
While some residents turned in firearms that went unused for years, a woman who went by the name Darlene told the station she was turning in her 9 mm so she could “upgrade to a better weapon.”
“I don’t know [what type of weapon],” she said. “I haven’t quite decided.”
