Crooks can steal guns, then turn them in to cops for money. Bad idea.

Always the dumbest idea anyone ever comes up with. Think about it. WHO turns in guns and WHAT CONDITION or TYPES of guns are turned in? What do they really accomplish? Nothing, to stop crime. It's just a false sense of security.

I agree that no one is turning in any guns that are worth much but even a piece of junk gun can kill. These turned in guns are not the ones the criminals have.

I'm not so sure... sometimes people are really hurtin' for cash and they turn in a gun that might have wound up killing somebody. Ghetto people betray each other all day long- so I can imagine family members selling the guns of their significant others.

Has anyone asked where the money originally comes from? Take a guess and don't be so naive. You're actually losing out on the deal!

The average bpt taxpayer would be paying a few pennies to remove a few hundred guns from some extremely unintelligent people. It's a huge win. The gun buybacks tend to get 'uncle fred's gun that's been kickin' around in the attic' so-to-speak; those are the unregistered guns in the possession of untrained people. It's a good thing.

Except for 2 or 3 states, there is no gun registration anywhere. That is a misleading conception or fallacy and so many people believe in that it is a nation wide requirement.
'Uncle Fred's' gun is probably all rusted up in the attic anyway so it is pretty useless but people still want money for it through the buy-back. That's not the type of desired weapon that the police want to be turned in. They're after the Glocks, Colts or Smith and Wessons that are functional and can cause problems if in the wrong hands, and not just the criminals.

"Except for 2 or 3 states, there is no gun registration anywhere."

WTF dude, everyone knows that statement is untrue.

Uncle Fred's gun may very well be used in a domestic incident. We know there are lots of serious domestic incidents in the ghetto.

I completely agree that the cops would want the glocks, etc. off the streets- but these may be turned in too- while leroy is serving yet another jail stint, Taquanda, in throwing away his meager belongings, runs across his drug stash and his piece. She turns it in to get weed money.....

Don't be threatened by a buyback- it won't take responsibly owned newer guns away from you and I. We will still have them to blast leroy when he climbs thru the window.

"WTF dude". Better read up on current laws. They keep changing and our own liberal dip_hit governor is only worried about keeping his job. That's why he created CT's new gun registration.
Seven states and the District of Columbia require registration of some or all firearms. Conversely, nine states have statutes prohibiting them from maintaining a registry of firearms.
But then, I'm sure Taquanda could care less about laws anyway.

Taquanda doesn't care about laws, Taquanda cares about getting liquor money. And anywhere you buy a pistol or an assault rifle, you need to register it.

So anyone can trade in a gun for money? What if it was used in a crime or was illegally obtained ? Makes no sense for the people who actually went thru all the right and legal steps to obtain the firearm and just maybe don't want it anymore. Does anyone know how this process works
