Generally, when the police hold a gun buy-back, their intent is to get dangerous weapons out of the hands of people, many of whom should not possess them or to get illegal firearms off the streets.

In many gun buy-backs, police promise a ‘no-questions’ asked policy designed to protect people who are illegally in possession of firearms or who own illegal firearms. They promise money or gift cards in exchange for guns.

Recently, the San Francisco police department held a no questions asked gun buy back and one of their purchases is more comical than practical. It seems they purchased back an AT-4 bazooka-like rocket launcher. That sound great until you realized that this weapon is a single shot weapon that cannot be reloaded. The purchase has brought a number of great comments on social media.

(Fox News) – An apparent bazooka-style rocket launcher was turned in at a San Francisco police-sponsored gun buyback event on Saturday – only to be found to be a non-reusable single-use weapon.

The shoulder-fired anti-tank weapon was among almost 300 firearms that were exchanged for cash. The firearms will eventually be disassembled, ground up and melted down.

The buyback had a strict “no-questions-asked” policy as part of the encouragement to give up guns and was organized by the San Francisco police department and the violence prevention group called “United Playaz,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported…

One person said it was a waste of taxpayer money and another said the Army should turn in all of their fired worthless tubes and get money for them from the SFPD. However, a friend of mine in law enforcement has told me that in some cases of advertised gun buy-backs, it causes an increase in home break-ins and stolen firearms. Criminals steal as many guns as possible just to sell back for easy no questions asked money.
