That was probably the goal, but as I posted before, only unuseable guns ...broken,rusted, whatever... and guns owned by people that either didn't want them or didn't know what to use them for, were probably the only ones obtained by this offer. "Illegal" guns were probably not remotely involved. Half the people that sold theirs that were of any value at all probably got rid of them because they thought they needed to be registered and were therefore "illegal". But as most of us know, guns don't need to be registered in Texas.
I hope they do it again, I have an old broken, rusted shotgun that was given me, that I'd like to get out of my safe.
