Mexican Police Giving Free PCs, Xboxes to Anyone Who Hands in Illegal Gun

It sounds pretty simple. Hand in your illegal gat, get a free Xbox. That's what the cops in Mexico are hoping will happen. Their plan is to slow down drug wars by giving out a free computer (around $769 worth) to anyone who hands in a high-caliber weapon like a machine gun. Hand in a smaller gun and you'll get an Xbox. So far they've received 17 guns. Too bad the suckers don't know the Xboxes they're getting are already discontinued.
