Mexico's Gun Collection Program

By: Justin Good - Published: • References: engadget
Check this idea out- the Mexican government's newly elected mayor is "desperately" trying to "restore order to the 'notorious inner-city barrio of Tepito." His idea goes like this: "rather than raiding gang hangouts and throwing 'em in all the slammer, the Mexican government is looking to reward them. The government "officials are offering up computers" (est. value $769) for individuals who"give up a 'high caliber weapon such as a machine gun." For "folks coughing up smaller artillery will be blessed with an Xbox Console."

So far, the new program has had some "minor sucesss" with a reported turn in of 17 guns during the first day of the program launch. Stats for Games for Guns Trending: Older & Chilly
