2017 State-wide Gun Buy-Back
New Jersey State Police ran its first statewide Guns for Cash buyback
event this weekend (July 28-29, 2017) at three drop-off spots in Trenton, Camden and Newark.

New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey S.
Chiesa announced on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013, that more
than 1,700 guns were turned in by Essex County residents
during last weeks state-sponsored gun buyback
event, which took place at six churches in five Essex
municipalities on Feb. 15 and 16, 2013. Irvington,
Orange, East Orange, Montclair, and Newark participated.
This is not meant to be humorous, or make fun of the gun
buyback programs. Recall that a similar gun buyback program was
held in December of 2009 and again in February of 2013. The results were the same: the
politicians claimed the buyback was the biggest ever and was,
therefore, pronounced "successful." Yet the shootings
continued, because criminals do not participate in gun buyback
programs. All that has happened is that honest citizens are being
deprived of a constitutional means to defend themselves when the
criminals come calling.
There is another aspect of these gun buyback programs that is
never considered by the politicians or the fake news media that
supports their views. It is the amnesty aspect, in which no
questions are asked when a gun is turned in and no record is made
linking the gun to the name and address of the person who turned
it in, effectively making this a "gun laundering"
program. Weapons turned in that may have been used in committing
crimes cannot be traced back to the crime, victim or perpetrator.
We have laws against "money laundering" but apparently
"gun laundering" of this sort is actually encouraged by
the police of New Jersey and its three largest cities, since they
all participate in it.
Gun Policy & Law Enforcement Survey
This survey was conducted between March 4 and
March 13, 2013. More than 15,000 officers completed the survey,
which was promoted by PoliceOne exclusively to its 400,000
registered members, comprised of verified law enforcement
professionals. Only current, former or retired law enforcement
personnel were eligible to participate in the survey. The survey
sample size was broadly distributed by geography and rank in
proportion to the U.S. law enforcement community at large.
Respondents comprised a variety of ranks from departments of all
sizes, with the majority representing departments of greater than
500 officers. Of those that took the survey, 80 percent were
current law enforcement officers and 20 percent were
former/retired law enforcement.
