Did a search. Nothing on current gun buyback schemes.

Connecticut Gun Buyback

This article is claiming that our society can be safer if fewer homes had guns that can be stolen. I'm pretty sure that those with criminal intent aren't turning their guns in.

Also, how did the school shootings end up being about stolen guns? Didn't Adam Lanza's mother buy the weapons?

Even in the Columbine High School shootings the weapons were purchased.

I'm not even getting into the right, or wisdom, to own a gun; it's just a matter of people giving up their weapons for the wrong reason.

Did he steal them, or did she allow him access to them? Did he have keys to the gun cabinet? Was there a gun cabinet?

Gun buyback to lower crime?

Statistics for the Australian buy back of restricted weapons in 1996 appear to strongly suggest... yes.

To try and implement the same or similar strategy in the US...

The short answer... no

The long answer... noooooooo

My thoughts


I believe Australia has struck a reasonable balance between firearms access and restrictions... however, I highly doubt that this model would be embraced in the US by her citizens even if it were able to be enacted, nor would it effectively reduce firearm fatalities to a level deemed not news worthy.

According to the comprehensive research by JPFO, all of America’s present gun-control laws have Nazi origins, evidenced by the group’s shocking accusation that the Gun Control Act of 1968 was plagiarized almost word for word from Nazi legislation.

None of the libtard responses to the CT shooting are in any way relevant to the facts of the shooting.

Frankenfeinstien wants to ban assault weapons, even though no assault weapons were used. (Unless they've changed their story by now, but that would just prove they are liars by contradicting themselves.)

They want to ban a list of 120 handguns, none of which were the handguns Lanza used.

They want to talk about stolen weapons, when the weapons weren't stolen.

Fact of the matter is the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Yeah, I may not have made myself clear. I feel that, at this time, the gun buybacks are directly related to the Sandy Hook incident, in which the guns weren't stolen. It is only the correlation between the crime and the public reaction that I'm questioning. If people turned in their weapons directly because many stolen guns are used in crimes (which they are), this would make sense.

Criminals will never turn their guns in. They use their guns to make their money.

The only people that will turn in their guns for a buy back are brain washed sheepel and the poor, who will no longer able to defend themselves against said criminals
