LOL! Keeping illegal firearms off the street is not the point, isn't it?

Every politician, judge, policeman and soldier has taken the oath to uphold the constitution. Yet, the constitution to them is not even worth of a piece of toilet paper.

Name one person who actually stick to the constitution?

I trust their oath as much as I trust a Nigerian prince.

"Broader support," my asinine.

And the MANY illegal gun owners whose firearms result in the daily deaths of countless Americans, get off scot-free. Again.

I see.

Get off the backs of law-abiding gun owners. The only ones who should "compensate" crime victims, are the perpetrators. And it's called restitution.

The only people that would comply with a stupid "buy back"
are the people that wouldn't misuse their weapons in the first place.
Disarming honest people at a staggering cost to taxpayers? NO!

The entire Australian and New Zealand population disagree with you.

What you don't understand is that they see gun owners ARE the perpetrators.

Australia has more guns now than before the buyback.
I guy I have talked to on a flooring for over 10 years from New Zealand says that most refused to turn in guns.

There is zero chance that a mandatory gun buyback will be held as constitutional. Let the Democrats try all they want to limit our constitutional guarantees.

I suspect such a move could potentially send this country into some sort of civil war.

Why tax them, safe gun owners are not the reason for illegal shootings. Might as well require pool owners to pay a yearly fee that will be used to compensate drowning victims and their families, it has as much relevance.

BTW - The weapon most cited for buyback is the AR-15 Rifle, all rifles (including AR-15's) are used in many fewer homicides that blunt objects such as a bat or a hammer.
You can't confuse gun-grabbers with facts, they've already made up their minds.
