A Houston resident profitably participated in the program for the redemption of personal weapons. But he handed over not real pistols, but printed fragments of firearms.
A Houston resident earned more than $ 3,150 through the American program for the repurchase of personal weapons. The American handed over 63 pistols printed on a 3D printer. This is reported by Vice magazine.
The cost of such pistols is $6-12, depending on the shape and design. But for every resident of Houston, he was able to receive $ 50 from the state – the minimum amount for a non-working weapon.
As it turned out, not all the pistols were even intact, some of them were only fragments of firearms.
Meanwhile, the man himself explained to reporters that he did not just want to make money. Its purpose was to send a certain “message” to the authorities that they spent millions of citizens' taxes on what may not be weapons.
The action, during which Americans could bring their own weapons, was held in Houston at the end of July. Everyone who participated was given $50-200 by the authorities for each pistol or rifle. It was possible to bring home-made firearms.
The city authorities called the action a success. According to them, similar events will be held in the future, however, homemade weapons will no longer be accepted.
“The program was designed not to make it possible to earn money on the sale of homemade pistols, but remove excess firearms from the streets of Houston, which may turn out to be a tool of criminals,” the city leadership commented.
As it became known today, thanks to the action, the Miami police will hand over 167 firearms to Irpin, Kyiv region. In Ukraine, it will be used by police and territorial defense fighters.
