3D printed Ghost guns will not be accepted at next 'buyback

Postby Bruenor » Tue Aug 02, 2022 1:32 pm

So some guy turned in 60 - 3D printed guns at the last buyback, collecting over $3000.00 of COVID relief funds. (Yes the money for the buyback came from one of the federal COVID bills).. But I guess 3D Printed ghost guns are not a problem after all as they will not be accepted in future buybacks. someone has apparently been lying to me that ghost guns are a problem

The ghost guns, often cheap to make and accessible, became a contentious point for Mayor Sylvester Turner and One Safe Houston, his $53 million public safety initiative, after some were exchanged for gift cards.

At the next such event, likely held in the next couple of months near Alief, ghost guns won’t be accepted.

“It was not designed for people to manufacture those guns and come get a Visa gift card,” he said.

Buying unwanted guns was the point of the city’s heavily publicized event, which public officials lauded as a success after more than 840 firearms were turned in for nearly $100,000 in gift cards, but some missed the mark by making their own firearms and turning them in for profit, Turner said.

“You’ll always have people who will find a way to profit off of anything,” the mayor said. “There is no fool-proof method, but you do learn.”

There was no mention of ghost guns in the planning of the event, Turner added, and initially, some were exchanged Saturday because they weren’t explicitly prohibited beforehand.
