    So I have bought and sold a gun and don't know what to do with the left over ammo?

    Apparently they didn't really think this out.
    Funny stuff

    Gosh, you know, instead of everybody calling them, why not just send it all to me and then I'll call him?

    What a maroon....What a nin-cow-poop

    Hmm, the cops coming to your door to round up ammunition...what could go wrong with that?

    How about they worry about crimes, gangs and policing themselves. We'll worry about our stray ammo.

    You guys mock, but its actually a decent program. Not necessarily for the reason they list, but several of my LEO friends have picked up ammo from widows who have no idea what to do with their late spouses stuff. If properly applied, its a good thing. There are possibilities for abuse, but those possibilities exist in almost everything these days.

    Interesting I see the OP's point of view and how in a narrow way this could be a good thing.

    Personally I have always retained any ammo I come across one never knows when a person might aquire a new firearm in a caliber not already shot. Or if one is to be of a mind to worry about SHTF stuff. Having a box or two of ammo not required could be a nice trading commodity.

    Maybe the Neighbor watching your back has a firearm that would use that odd stuff you happen to have. Not like it takes up much room.

    I don't mock, I just think government and it's entities get involved in too many things they should stay out of. This kind of stuff are the reasons our taxes are so danged high! The police should concern themselves with policing. If there is a scourge of loose rounds running amok then you or I should start a program to gather them up...not give gov't yet another reason to peek in your doorway.

    They aren't saying that they're going to demand all your loose rounds. If you have reason not to want them in your house, don't invite them. But there are instances where this is a valuable public service. You may not want to turn over your loose rounds to them, I probably won't either. But because most of us have the desire to keep every piece of ammo we get, that doesn't mean other people won't have a need for this program.

    Well, there lies the rub. If one is dealing with law enforcement, the possibility of abuse should be about zero, if they were the upstanding public servents they are supposed to be.

    I see the use for it too. I've had a couple people call me to dispose of ammo because they didn't know what to do with it. Luckily, all fit something I owned.

    Most are. The problem is that the ones we hear about are the jackasses with no business wearing a badge. And even one of those guys is too many. But a program like this allows police to have positive interactions with the public. The more of those they have, the more the public feels like getting involved, maybe doing the citizen's academy or going on a ride-a-long. The more good citizens get involved the less room there will be for the bad cops...

    Probably a good idea, lest this thread deteriorate into an "all cops are evil" argument...
