From the article:

“So-called gun-buyback programs don’t work,” the organization said.“They do nothing to take guns out of the hands of violent criminals or street-gang members, but they do coerce law-abiding gun owners into turning in their firearms while incentivizing petty criminals to steal more guns for monetary reward.

Funny how you edited out who said this ((I'd be embarrassed too, Shug): the National Association for Gun Rights questioned the value of the efforts.

Fewer dead bodies.

I understand: many of them are black so it is no concern of yours.

Experts say gun buybacks not answer to violent crime
http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/experts-say-g...

"They get guns that aren't fully functional," said Ralph Fascitelli of Washington Ceasefire. "They get guns that people don't want. They get guns that really aren't working well."

GREENFIELD — There are 300 fewer guns in circulation today than Friday, thanks to a regional gun buy-back program.

“We brought in 160 guns,” said Greenfield Police Lt. William Gordon.“Northampton took in about 140.”

The two departments hosted gun buy-backs organized by the Northwestern District Attorneys Office and several community organizations Saturday. A no-questions-asked policy made sure people didn’t have to worry about not having the proper licenses when getting rid of their unwanted guns.

Those who got rid of their guns got peace of mind, along with a $50 prepaid debit card. One person brought a pre-assault-weapon-ban AR-15 assault rifle to the Greenfield station, and walked away with a $100 card.

Gordon said he was surprised to see the weapon turned in. The pre-ban gun is capable of accepting magazines that hold 30 or more bullets, and can fetch as high as $3,000 in a legitimate sale, Gordon said.

Only about 15 guns weren’t in working order, said Gordon. Non-working guns and ammunition were accepted at the event, but gift cards were not issued for them.

No? Then why are they going door to door taking guns in California, Illinois, and New York? They're trying to do it in Colorado. But they are running into problems getting the Sheriffs and their deputies to run over the Constitution.

Can guarantee they won't be trying it in Texas or Arizona.
