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.
