Man Brings Live Hand Grenade to Gun Buyback Event
Source: Fox News

NEW YORK It was a gun buyback not a bomb buyback.

New York City police were holding a suspect Saturday who they say tried to turn in a live hand grenade to police at a gun-buyback program in the Bronx.

Authorities say the NYPD's bomb squad responded to a church where guns were being collected at around 4:30 p.m. and left 15 minutes later with the grenade, carrying it out in a special carrier. The program offers $200 for guns, no questions asked.

9. It's the detonators!
Grenades can't kill unless the detonator goes off...

but... all kidding aside... they're great for fishing!

7. I don't believe it - it is not possible.
Hand grenades are illegal, therefore, they CANNOT be found in the US.

10. So.... did he get double?
If it's $200 for guns, then grenades should fetch about $500.

Wonder how much my howitzer would go for...

Not a penny under $10000, copper!

18. $200 for a gun??????
Hell, I've got a beat-to-shit .22 bolt-action that I should turn in... I could take the money and buy a shiny new semiautomatic one instead!



When is Minneapolis or St. Paul doing this???
