We have a lot of posts in our archives about the “success” of gun buyback programs. Some people turn in guns that look like they were recovered from the Titanic, while others whip together homemade guns out of plywood to cash in. Police really seem to think people are going to turn in the AR-15s for a $100 gift card.

Here’s the story of a man who 3D printed over 100 lower receivers and drove to Utica to sell them at a buyback event, making $21,000 in gift cards in the process.

Fox News reports:

A New York man claims to have made $21,000 during a gun buyback program by 3D printing over 100 lower receivers and turning them over to police.

“I 3D-printed a bunch of lower receivers and frames for different kinds of firearms,” the man, who would only identify himself as “Kem,” told WKTV last week.

Kem says he printed the gun parts on a $200 3D printer he received as a gift for Christmas and then made the 6-hour drive to Utica, New York, where the Utica Police Department was hosting a gun buyback program for the New York State Attorney General’s Office.

“I’m sure handing over $21,000 in gift cards to some punk kid after getting a bunch of plastic junk was a rousing success,” Kem said. “Gun buybacks are a fantastic way of showing, number one, that your policies don’t work, and, number 2, you’re creating perverse demand. You’re causing people to show up to these events, and, they don’t actually reduce crime whatsoever.”


Did any criminals turn in their guns?
