Always detested that term- you cannot "Buy back" what you never owned.

It is estimated the civilian population of the US owns ABOUT 270 million firearms (that was before a week ago- numbers have gone up!)

So a buyback that offered a rock bottom $250 per gun would cost- if I am counting zeroes correctly- $67.5 BILLION dollars. A more realistic amount ($500 per gun) would bounce that to $135 BILLION dollars.

Crap like this is dreamt up by idiots that have no concept just how widespread gun ownership is in the US.

This has about as much chance as running thru a forest fire wearing gasoline underwear.

I think the suppressor is a good thing. I mean it will be safer for us to shoot and not have a big chance of damaging our hearing. It's a health thing!

tack on things like removal of the nfa altogether legalizing full autos, tack on disarmament of all federal agents, tack on disbanding the secret service, tack on repeal of obama care, tack on disbanding the epa, tack on opening anwar for drilling, tack on drilling off california coast, tack on turning all federal land to private citizens for free, tack on repeal of the 16th ammendment, tack on repeal of social security, tack on repeal of medicare, tack on national right to work. i could go on a long time but i think you get the idea

That's exactly why they want to take all your guns away, so there is no revolution.

We are doing exactly what the gun snatchers want us to do. We are driving up demand. The way that things are going we are going to price ourselves out of the gun business.

^ Yes but the fact that there's still a demand for guns is actually a good sign.

That's what I keep thinking about. How much a buy back is going to cost us. Also I believe a combination of things are going to follow:

Most of us are not going to turn our guns in. Even if they were offering fair market value.

The government will come up with the bright idea of selling the guns to other countries to relieve cost to the country. Meaning they will make money on the deal and they will end up in the hands of our nations criminals somehow eventually.

When they start coming to take our guns by force, they are going to have bigger problems then a kid on a spree.

Or after initial passing of the order it is retracted due to mass riots.

There is no way at this time in America will a retroactive ban work or be a good choice financially or in any other aspect.

The usual buy back is $50.
