L.A.P.D. is now investigating the two rocket launchers turned in to the gun buy back program. Guess the no questions asked rule is out.
Two rocket launchers along with 901 handguns, 698 rifles, 363 shotguns and 75 assault weapons. Hundreds of Angeleno's lined up in their cars and on foot to turn in their guns for gift cards. The gift cards ranged from $50.00 per hand gun, up to $200.00 for assault weapons. The LAPD was in charge of taking in the weapons, and no questions were asked.
