  •  Fyi, some of these programs were buy-back. (1+ / 0-)

    I read an article (which I dont' have handy) about the buy-back programs in Oakland & San Francisco. Those were included in the article I cited. Since it summarized several different programs around the country, there were no doubt different payment arrangements.

    But beyond that, I don't understand your objection. If someone wants to give up their firearm to the authorities without compensation, I certainly have no problem with it. It's their choice. While it's true we would probably have to buy-backs if we ever got really serious about removing existing firearms from circulation, keep in mind that we're a long ways away from that. What happened in the article is happening with existing programs that were kind of unprepared from the level of firearms surrenders. We're still at the beginning stages of turning around the US saturation with firearms.
