My first take on this was rather muted due to the fact that if you were a gun collector, you probably had a few guns that where not worth $200, and
you would make out quite handsomely. However, some that did this, certainly reacted out of respect for our recent events, and wanted to clear their
slate, which is a respectable offering none the less.
The more important aspect here would be, how many of these guns were "assault quality", and those should be the one's that will really make a
difference. I believe that the public should be able to own a simple manual gun, if they choose to. But the assault class weapons have no more of a
reasonable presence in the public inventory than bombs.
It will be interesting to see how many assault weapons wind up in this Buyback, as we all know the price tags for this class of weaponry start in the
thousands, and go up by popularity, fire rate and manufacturer based reliability.
IMHO, the proper way to pull off this Buyback is for those class of weapons, and of course, a higher remuneration for what it cost those owners to
acquire them in the first place..
