These gun "buy back" schemes are nothing more than politicians shouting, "Hey! Look at me! Look at the wonderful thing I'm doing for your safety!". Of course it is pure bull crap and is doing absolutely
NOTHING for public safety. As the article points out, the criminals, the ones most likely to use a weapon in the commission of a crime, aren't going to be within a thousand yards of this nonsense. Those of us who enjoy shooting should set up shop nearby and offer $150 gift cards for the guns and then turn around and sell the good ones to others who enjoy shooting.
