18 guns to be destroyed after Norwalk buy-back

NORWALK, Conn. – A gun buy-back hosted by Norwalk Police Saturday netted 18 guns, police say.

The guns – 12 long guns and six handguns – will be turned Connecticut State Police for destruction, a press release said. Visa gift cards worth a total of $925 were given out at the gun buy-back, held in Norwalk Police headquarters.

Police say they plan to host another buy-back program in the near future. They say they are grateful for the generosity of a Norwalk resident whose donation of $5,026 made the program possible.

    Wasn’t there a problem, a few years ago, with confiscated guns scheduled for destruction sold and eventually wound up being used a second time in crimes ?

    Why don’t the police take those guns to a local junkyard, sell them as scrap metal, by the poind, and supervise while they are cut up by a junk yard employee ?

    Selling 18 guns for scrap iron wont pay for the trip around the block.
