Missile Turned In During Juarez Gun Buyback
A gun buy back program in Juarez got authorities a little more than they bargained for.
April has been the deadliest month of the year in Juarez, tallying up over 145 murders so far and bringing the total for the year to over 465 murders. In an effort to quell the violence, the city of Juarez started a gun buyback program, offering anywhere from $80 to $370 US dollars per gun depending on it's type.
The missile came from a woman who called police and asked them to come to her home and pick it up. The story doesn't say how she wound up with the missile but did say that it was inactive.
To be honest, I don't get gun buyback programs. How does getting good people to turn in their guns lessen violence? To me, it just creates easier targets for bad people who, I guarantee you, are not turning in theirs.
