Bump stock and trigger crank buy back program set for November

DELAWARE –¬†Delawareans who still own a bump stock or trigger crank will get an opportunity to sell them to the state.

The attachments, now considered illegal, can go to the state via a buyback program that will be offered on two different dates: November 3rd and November 7th.

The goal of the program, according to officials, is to reduce violence and ensure the safety of all Delawareans.

People who bring in a bump stock can walk away with 100 dollars, and people who bring in a trigger crank will make 15 dollars.

Sergeant Richard Bratz explained, “The safety instructions part of this is they cannot have the gun or the device attached to one another, they have to have it detached upon arrival. They leave it in the car, they come in, make contact.”

The buy back locations are at Delaware State Police Troop 4 in Georgetown, and Delaware State Police Troop 3 in Camden.

On November 3rd, you can participate in the program from 10 AM to 2 PM and on November 7th, you can participate from 4 PM to 8 PM.
