    From the article -

    "... did little to thin the firearm supply actually available to dangerous criminals."

    Was their objective to - "thin the firearm supply actually available to dangerous criminals."

    - or -

    Remove self-defense capabilities from legal gun owners.

    I suppose it depends on how you look at it - and who you are.

    The truth of the matter is, in some places the buy backs work. Lots of people that are scared by what they may do with guns turn them in. Of course, those are the same people that are afraid whenever they are out of their "safe space".

    On the other hand, people with IQs greater than their shoe size, aren't scared of inanimate objects, know what their personal property is actually worth, and don't typically participate in this sort of claptrap.

    Frankly, those are exactly the folks this is intended to target. If they have to take in a few oddball guns like that home made shotgun, then, good. We are going in the right direction with these things folks.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    we all know its a feel good back patting event
    I have not heard of one for years around here it got to the point they had police ( experts ) to decide the buy back value as so much junk was being turned it it had to be in working order and semi auto to get the full 25.00 at that time ya right ,,,,
    I do like this "shotgun " some one turned in the
    buyback on the posters link
    I would make up a barrel full for 100.00 a pop [:D][:D][:D]
    as the article pointed out the owner received for it
