A gun buyback program is one where the government purchases guns from private citizens. The goal of these programs is to reduce the number of guns owned by private citizens. In most gun buyback programs the police are the agents buying the guns. In 2019 Presidential candidates Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, Kamala Harris and Julian Castro each proposed a mandatory gun buyback program where the federal government would purchase AK-47’s and AR-15’s from private citizens. In the past U.S. gun buyback programs have been implemented by state and city governments.
I think military weapons and weapons for government officials for protection are safe, taking away guns removes American's right to the second amendment, and that background checks of gun owners, and license renewal every 2 years.
there should be no private business but intellectual property that can be used in violent crimes, such as guns, should be monitored by the community and the individual should have mental health screenings if they are suspicious.
No, even Michael Bloomberg's own John Hopkins center states that the data does not show a ban on assault weapons as being effective. There is no reason that an adult of sound mind, good legal standing, and sufficient training cannot privately own a firearm of any kind or any accessories to that firearm. Training, mental health checks, and criminal background checks are the only laws that have been proven to work. Even then, training and background checks should be paid for by taxes rather than out of pocket.
we should increase background checks, increase access to mental health care, raise the necessary age to buy a gun, implement biometric locks on guns (possibly implement technology that limits use if the person is angry (subdermal infrared camera), make all guns send a signal when fired with owner, location, and footage, and/or make guns that can't fire except in designated areas), register guns with owners, increase funding for education, give an optional buyback policy.
I personally think there should be different laws for guns. Every year there's countless numbers of shootings even sometimes being at public places including schools. Many kids have to fear each day if they'll make it home that day and fear the worst to happen, I know I do. I'm always thinking something will happen and I'm always thinking of ways to get out and what I'd do if I was ever in that situation. I think there has to be certain laws and how many guns someone has, what guns they have and who has the guns. I think it would help even a little bit to bring down the number of shootings and school shootings.
It should not be up to the federal government to make this call, instead it should be up to either local government or state government or perhaps both. I also think doing so would limit how many people the federal government are looking at as potential threats/red flags and will let the local government or state government a more exclusive look into an individual(s).
I believe they should do a buyback, but not mandatory. i think it should be mandatory for them to have to register them in their name, but before they can do so they have to do a few mental health checks beforehand, and if they don't they cant get their gun back.
No, the act of buying back arms violates the 2nd amendment, and it forces owner's who own such arms to giving up their private property, with exception, also instead there should be more mental health and background checks.
no, This seems borderline treason, as it is disarming the american people, as well as how The Avtomat Kalashnikova and the armalite rifle 15 are not "assault weapons" as they are not fully automatic. Also how the selling of Bump stocks which could make nearly any firearm almost any weapon automatic
