Government is simply the word for those things we choose to do badly together.
"Buy back" sounds a lot more friendly than "Surrender your freedom for a pittance."
How can you buy back what you've never owned?Ah, but I forget...all guns come from the state, either directly (cop and soldier guns), or indirectly (by gracious state "permission" to buy one), right?
When certain people gather to trade guns, it is one of those evil "gun shows". I'm puzzled why many of the same local, state and federal laws are seemingly waived for "gun buy back programs".Gun buy back program organizers should be required to hold a valid FFL and completely document the acquisition and disposition of all firearms. Then all those guns should be checked through NCIC to see if they have been reported stolen before any transaction is finalized.Stolen firearms can't be purchased or transferred and should be returned to the owners. It is a crime to gain control over stolen property.
I think Elmo's point should be spread far and wide, and a demand for equal treatment made. To take it a step further, there should be a 10-day (or whatever the regional requirement is) waiting period for buy-backs before money is exchanged.
Now wait just a doggone minute.........I was going to have a gun buy back program next month!
