The majority of governmental gun buy-backs that I have seen have been no-questions-asked. The gun would be destroyed, absolutely no questions asked, and the government gives you money.
These are stupid, dangerous, irresponsible programs. If you just murdered somebody, go to a gun buyback and the government will guaranteed destroy the murder weapon for you. Wonderful!
I support it if they give me more than what I paid for the gun, I am a capitalist.
A destroyed gun is better than an unwanted one laying around the place where a criminal could get hold of it.
And any criminal who has a hot gun and an ounce of sense, has better ways to despose of it.
In situations where they check to see if the guns are stolen(still giving the person turning it in immunity), something like 70-80% of the guns have been stolen. Sorry, no. It's ridiculous to use taxpayer dollars to let criminals turn in stolen guns and guns that have been used in crimes, give them immunity in doing so, and destroying the evidence.
"And any criminal who has a hot gun and an ounce of sense, has better ways to despose of it."
Because they are oh so concerned about who gets a hold of it.
Laying around what place? Just around on the ground or on tables in places?
What exactly do you mean?

Some people already have a lot of guns. So if gun laws are passed, how will the government actually get guns away from people. Some guns are registered and some are not, how could the government find out,...
