I'd probably burn the ticket. Keep your gun for a later trade. Hopefully it won't be for your own life.

I'd probably burn the ticket.

You wouldn't use it yourself? You have money to throw away/burn?

You could give it to some charity and have them auction it off.. do some good with it rather than burn it.

The possibilities are endless, burning is the least magnanimous.

If you had an item that cost plenty to buy

but that felt wasn't good for anyone's health, would you donate it to charity to auction off? I wouldn't.

if she was giving away guns. Well, maybe for a mint condition Colt Army 1911.

but she hasn't "signed on" yet? and they're talking to press
by Roger NC / February 27, 2013 / 4:47 PM UTC

What happens if they get permission from NYPD but she comes out against it?
Other than playing the devil's advocate that way, I say if they believe that's what should be and are willing to put money up to buy guns what's the problem with it.
Sad part is they'll probably bet either guns that current owners only have because someone left them and they'd never use them anyway, or guns from people that want something new anyway, or even people who stole the guns.

I wonder if proof of ownership will be required?

(NT) Publicity stunt maybe. Who knows...
