FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) – Authorities say a 2-day gun buyback program staged in central New Jersey last weekend netted 218 firearms.Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni says the weapons collected at a church in Asbury Park and the Rumson police department included 126 handguns, 39 shotguns, and 24 rifles.
Among the assault weapons surrendered was a Colt AR-15, a Mossberg assault shotgun and a World War II-era Japanese bolt-action rifle.
Participants were allowed to turn in weapons for cash with no questions asked. Gramiccioni says officials spent $15,000 to buy the firearms.
The weapons collected during the buyback will be destroyed.

So let’s forget about the nuances of “assault rifles” having three features (intermediate cartridge, mild recoil and selective fire). And let’s remember that the phrase “assault weapon” is a fabricated bastard created by the gun control lobby for guns that are supposed to look scary.
How, pray tell, does a Japanese bolt action rifle become an assault weapon? Well, I went ahead and did something I had vowed not to do ever since the AP forbid this practice (just out of protest) – I copied the text including the fact that the AP wrote this story.
That’s how. You let the idiots at the AP write the report. And by the way, how do I purchase this Japanese bolt action rifle? It would be a shame to let it go to waste being owned by the collectivists, or just as bad, destroyed.
