  •  The only problem with a buyback program is (7+ / 0-)

    that the gun manufacturers are pumping out twice as many new guns than are removed from the program and many if not more of those new guns wound up on the streets.

    It will take a two pronged approach for the buyback programs to be truly successful. First limit the kinds and amounts of weapons that can be manufactured and sold to civilians - dramatically. Then initiate a very aggressive buyback/harsh penalty approach to removing guns from the streets and careless homes.

    Politically a nearly impossible feat, but being nearly impossible does not mean impossible. A little here, a little there until there are so few incidences of gun violence that we can declare we've reached a fair balance between 2nd Amendment rights and overall public safety.
