A gun exchange in Michigan was so successful that Cops had to run to the ATM to get more cash to pay those who turned in weapons. Port Huron police ran through $5,000 in cash during a gun buyback on Saturday, April 6. The event was so successful that roughly halfway through the event the police had to run to the ATM to get more cash to buy back weapons. The event was sponsored by by the James C. Acheson Foundation, (no word on if they police used their own ATM cards or borrowed one from the foundation). Here is what The Port Huron Police collected in a matter of hours...

  • 15 shotguns
  • 18 rifles
  • 29 handguns
  • Several non-functioning firearms
  • A BB gun and
  • Thousands of rounds of ammunition
  • Black powder

The items collected will be disposed and not resold or retained. Yet, you have to wonder where all these weapons come from. The police released a statement to Mlive

A majority of the citizens advised they had inherited guns or held onto guns they didn’t feel safe owning and wanted them destroyed so they didn’t get in the wrong hands.

The Huron Police Department has offered the community a great deal! Any resident who wants a firearm destroyed can do so free of charge by contacting the department at 810-984-9710.
