I looked, but I can't find the story shown on TV, on the station website but a gun buy back was held in Hartford, CT and a couple days later the police returned the weapon to the person who turned it in. It was a WWII German assault rifle that they said was worth $30-40,000. They showed a picture of it. Talk about a nice thing to do. I couldn't believe some of the nice stuff being turned in. The people could have gotten much more for many for the guns from a local gun store.

I always figure the people running the buy back take the good stuff home anyway. $75 gift card for a nice stainless Ruger revolver. Whattta deal.
