Myth: Gun “buy back” programs get guns off the
streets
Fact: According to the federal government, gun ‘buybacks’ have “no effect”.264
Fact: “Buy backs” remove no more than 2% of the firearms within a community. And
the firearms that are removed do not resemble guns used in crimes. “There has never
been any effect on crime results seen”.265
Fact: Up to 62% of people trading in a firearm still have another at home, and 27% said
they would or might buy another within a year.266
Fact: More than 50% of the weapons bought via a gun buy-back program were over 15
years old, whereas almost half of firearms seized from juveniles are less than three years
old.267
Fact: According to a variety of sources, the actual effect is that gun buy-back programs:
• Disarm future crime victims, creating new social costs
• Give criminals an easy way to dispose of evidence
• Are turned in by those least likely to commit crimes (the elderly, women, etc.)
• Cheap guns are bought and sold back to the government for a profit
• Cause guns to be stolen and sold to the police, creating more crime
• Seldom return stolen guns to their rightful owners
Fact: "They do very little good. Guns arriving at buy backs are simply not the same guns
that would otherwise have been used in crime. If you look at the people who are turning

You own guns? I don't. I never have, and I never will. I hate the things.

There's a very simple reason why "buy back" programs will never work.

They offer less for a working firearm than selling it to virtually anyone, even a pawn shop would offer more.

So why would anyone with an operational and legal firearm sell it for less? If the gun is illegal then it's not that likely the person will take it to the police. I'm sure there are anecdotal examples of people taking functional illegally owned guns to a buy back program but it can't be a large number.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Mayor Bloomberg and Andrew Cuomo, can all go live on their happy island, where they only use their words. For the rest of us, I didn't break any laws, I didn't massacre those poor people in CT. As such, leave my damn guns alone. This should be a state's rights issue. Because everyone in California are a bunch of freaks and New Yorkers want to live as sheep, let them set the rules for their States, otherwise, stay the hell out of my state. I can personally attest to the fact that, due to the fact that I was carrying, I was able to walk away alive.
When the CIA, FBI, NSA, etc. turn over their weapons, then I shall first, ask them how they like it and then I'll give it a moments thought about turning in my....No. I won't be turning in anything. Good luck trying to get them from me.
