    Police Get Missile Launcher During Gun Swap, You Guessed It...In Florida

    Police get missile launcher during Fla. gun-shoe swap

    ORLANDO, Florida (AP) Police were hoping for a good turnout at their "Kicks for Guns" program to exchange weapons for sneakers, but they weren't expecting a surface-to-air missile launcher.

    An man exchanged the 4-foot-long launcher for Reebok sneakers for his daughter, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

    Taking advantage of the exchange's no-questions-asked policy, the man was not identified. He told the Orlando Sentinel that he found the weapon in a shed he tore down last week.

    "I didn't know what to do with it, so I brought it here," he told the newspaper. "I took it to three dumps to try to get rid of it and they told me to get lost."

    Besides the missile launcher police collected more than 250 guns. They were all exchanged for sneakers or US$50 gift certificates.

    More than likely, he could have purchased the ammo for it at the gun show, held in the same pavilion the following week.

    Does anyone actually turn in "permitted" weapons? What percentage of these are stolen/illegally possessed?

    As far as I understand they're all stolen/illegally possesed. Hence the "no-questions-asked policy"
