Each time a gun buyback goes down, there's always at least one intimidating surprise. Eighty-five weapons were recovered by police at an event in Bushwick yesterday, and the biggest eyebrow-raisers were a Tec-9 and a Ruger Mini-14 assault rifle. According to reports, seven of the weapons were loaded. Eight had had their serial numbers scratched off.

As if you didn't already know, it's real out here.
