Note to New Yorkers: Don't Bring a Grenade to a Gun Buyback

The program is 'no questions asked' for guns. For hand grenades, not so much.

NYPD: Man Brings Grenade To Gun Buyback:

New York City police were holding a suspect Saturday who they say tried to turn in a live hand grenade to police at a gun-buyback program in the Bronx.

Authorities say the NYPD's bomb squad responded to a church where guns were being collected at around 4:30 p.m. and left 15 minutes later with the grenade, carrying it out in a special carrier. The program, which offers $200 for guns no questions asked had started Saturday across the Bronx.

Police were questioning the man, who they didn't immediately identify, and it wasn't clear if he would face any charges.
