Now there's an interesting piece of information. "...reallocated $75,000 seized from criminals to reinstate the program."
Essex County authorities say more than 400 guns were turned in Thursday as the prosecutor's office resumed a gun buyback program.
The program was suspended last month after local authorities burned through the $50,000 allocated for it in the first two days.
Essex County Prosecutor Paula Dow, recently nominated by Gov.-elect Chris Christie to be state attorney general, said she reallocated $75,000 seized from criminals to reinstate the program.
Those turning in guns could receive up to $200.
The program is to continue today.
That should take care of one of the major complaints we hear about these programs, shouldn't it.
