The sudden cutoff in the supply of free weapons is an "inconvenience," but not a big problem, said Jeff Shadburn, Ohio's program coordinator. Shadburn said he already had collected the information as previously required, but now he simply has to certify the information under the penalty of perjury.

Conte, the New Hampshire coordinator, said some of the other equipment law enforcement agencies receive through the program is more needed at times.

"The weapons part of it is a small part compared to everything else, but it's an important part," he said.
