Gun Buyback Programs Tend To Attract Low-Risk Groups – DUH!?

NPR posted a report saying the gun buy back programs don’t really net guns from criminals. Oh really? Well, this is shocking news! I have often thought that the journalists at NPR may be too far left for me, but I thought they were at least intelligent. This report could have been written by anyone with half a brain.

From NPR, “Cities have launched gun buyback programs to reduce the number of firearms in circulation, but it may not be very effective in reducing street crime.”

Listen to the report via Gun Buyback Programs Tend To Attract Low-Risk Groups : NPR. You will hear host Scott Simon speaks with Santa Fe Sheriff Raymond Rael about his city’s program. Simon also speaks with Johns Hopkins associate professor Jon Vernick about the efficacy of such schemes.

  1. I heard they are finally going to have a gun buy back program kind of almost where I live. I started going through the old broken P.O.S. guns folks have given me over the years that are not worth repairing…I think I’ll take them and turn them in. (you know that’s usually what they get- old broken crap) I figure I can get a few hundred bucks for my trouble.

    1. One of my friends told me tonight that he knows someone that goes to gun buyback events, and walks the line looking at what people are about to trade in for their $50.00 grocery card, and will frequently offer them $100, (or slightly more than the buy-back is offering) and that is one way he buys guns. That is genius! I am still looking for another AR-15, I may go to a gun buy back! Ha!!
