Rochester, NY Police Department Cons Innocent, Unsuspecting, Trusting Citizens with Annual Gun Buyback Scam

City of Rochester, NY Scam Hustle "Gun Buyback"

By Davy V.

Once again, the Rochester, NY Police Department, under the direction of its polce chief Michael Ciminelli, and Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren, conned and defrauded innocent, trusting, law and citizens with the City of Rochester, NY's Gun Buyback program.

For the readers not from the Rochester area, the gun buyback program is a yearly scam, put on by Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren, where naive citizens are encouraged to turn in their firearms in exchange for gift cards to Wegmans Food stores.

Now, Mayor Lovely Warren and her puppet chief of police will have citizens believe that by them turning in their guns, they're making Rochester, ranked as New York States "Murder Capital", a safer place.


You see, the firearms which are turned in every year, to Rochester's gun buyback, ARE NOT guns that are just randomly scattered on city streets, like litter.

Not at all.

The overwhelming percentage of the firearms that the City of Rochester scams people out of every year are legally owned firearms, including in some cases, family heirlooms.

Take, for example, the photo below.

Elderly woman gets scammed out of her late father's vintage revolver.

It's of an elderly woman who turned in her dead father's vintage revolver, which appears to be a .22 caliber, in its wooden and red velvet display case.

The woman said she wishes she could have kept it, but that she knew that she had to turn it in because her father had passed away.


What the woman didn't know, and sadly, no one at the gun buyback scam told her, including Rochester, NY Police officers, is that there is a process that is available to her where she could have applied to the state, and become licensed, then she would have been able to legally keep her late father's vintage gun.

But again, she didn't know that.

And again, no one told her.

Including the Rochester, NY cops at the gun buy scam.

They could have.

But they didn't.

Instead, they quickly took it off her hands in exchange for a $100 Wegmans gift card.

Another trusting citizen, this time a man, turned in his vintage 100-plus year old  lever-action rifle.

His reward?

A $50 Wegmans gift card.

And yet another man got robbed after he turned in his single-action Wild Wild West style revolver, again, for groceries.

Yes because, every time there's a drive-by shooting in Rochester, NY, like the one last August where three black youths were killed, and several others were seriously injured, after a Boys and Girls Club basketball game, the weapon of choice has been a Gunsmoke, or Bonanza-type revolver.

Or an old lady's family heirloom .22 revolver.

Or an antique lever-action rifle.

What a scam.

Rochester, NY Police officers conning and defrauding trusting people.

According to Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren, and Rochester Police Chief Mchael Ciminelli, all the firearms collecte will be destroyed.


I will bet you dollars to donuts, that some dirty, crooked Rochester, NY cop, maybe even the chief himself, already has those vintage firearms in their gun case.
