“We’re not naive in thinking crime weapons are going be turned in,” Wilmington Police Chief Michael Szczerba told delawareonline.com re: this Saturday’s gun buyback fiesta. “There will be very few crime guns turned in, if any at all.” Kinda like having a pool party for Candice Swanepoel without the South African supermodel in attendance. Why bother? “If these weapons are sitting around, they’re not secured, getting them off the street or even out of someone’s house, we believe is an advantage for public safety,” pronounced Col. Robert M. Coupe, Delaware State Police superintendent (above). So creating a market for stolen guns ($150 for a handgun, $200 for an assault rifle, $100 for shotguns and hunting rifles) prevents firearms accidents—which are rarer than hen’s teeth. And lets pols pontificate. For $100k worth of taxpayer cash PLUS admin costs. Makes sense to me. On some level.
