Anonymous Govt Gun Buybacks Not So Anonymous When Sellers Names Become Public Record
A gun buyback program in Sante Fe, NM where the city offered $100, $150, and $200 Visa gift cards to anyone turning in a gun was supposed to be anonymous. Bring your gun in, get a giftcard, no questions asked.
However when the officials ran out of money and started handing out IOU’s the anonymity went away.
Organizers took down the names and contact info of anyone owned a gift card.
The info was submitted to the city council as proof of needing more money, and just like that, became public record.
Who sells guns back to these things, really?
