People who have guns they do not want anymore will be allowed to drop them off at the Coconut Grove NET office, at St. Stephens Episcopal Church, 2750 McFarland Road.
The program will operate from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, so you will want to get there early enough to pick out a good spot.
Many broken and junk firearms are turned in at these events, but a fair number of people who inherited decent guns, but do not want to have anything to do with them, show up. There are often some pretty good deals.
Across the country, freedom fighters are showing up at these events, and offering cash for the better specimens. This should be welcomed by event organizers, if their purpose is to "get guns off the streets". This is because such activity stretches the turn in dollars, prevents poor widows from being defrauded of their valuable property for a pittance, and places guns that are not wanted in responsible hands.
Private sales are perfectly legal in Florida, as they are in most states.
Local information would be appreciated, as these events are often held in poor neighborhoods.
Here are numerous links showing private individuals purchasing guns at numerous events across the country:
Outside, a group of gun advocates set up a table offering a better price to people carrying high-quality weapons.
Also in front of the church were people offering to buy the guns off of people before they reached the buyback event.
Outside the police station, a group of four or five men gathered to offer cash to people who were bringing guns in.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/W41mWY ) reports that a federally licensed gun dealer showed up to provide some competition. He bought a dozen weapons for $40 to $100 by standing outside the church with a sign that read “Cash 4 Guns.”
Just outside where the buyback program was being held pro gun activists were offering cash for guns.
