no, these are usually no questions asked, which make them a good place to dump stolen guns, or possibly even criminal evidence (murder weapon) most of the guns bought back are broken or worthless, waste of tax money

Yes.  It makes less room for continual error in gun control, so less people die :-)

Buyback programs have no impact on criminal behavior or violence.  They are a waste of money.

No evidence what so ever that these programs decrease crime.  Waste of tax-payer money.  It is all publicity hype.  Plus it is not a buy back program ----it is a buy up program.  As far as I know the government never owned these firearms before to be capable of buying them back. I would never sell my firearms to the government.  If I was to sell any I would get the going market price not a pentence from the government.

Let's see.  Custom built hunting rifles can cost 1-4 thousand dollars.  A modern well made factory handgun cost between 300-600 dollars.  A sturdy inexpensive shotgun is between 200-300 dollars.  But if we just paid $100 each for the nations 200 million firearms, that would be a whoppping  =   20 BILLION dollars.  Anyone think that a gun buy back is still a good idea?

I don't think anyone with a $4000 hunting rifle will turn it in for $100 for the good of the nation or because it is the civilized thing to do.

I wish that a gun buy back would come through my city, I have some old junk guns that I would gladly trade for cash but as for lowering crime, not one statistic has said anything even remotely saying that gun buy backs lower crime.  How is it a buy back when the government never owned my gun in the first place also... sounds like propaganda to me.
