I think I’ll start a website to “buy back” guns and resell them to people that need them.

How would that sound Fraudstein?

“could be compulsory”

Well, good luck with that.

Talking about confiscation and permits together is a great idea,

Nothing like passing a law while encouraging law bidding citizens to break it out of fear.

So much for the Constitution and the Supreme Court rulings of the past few years.

These people are exactly the reason for the Constitution. They are the very people our founders feared.

CA already had a compulsory buyback of non-compliant SKS’s around 1999-2000. The state paid $230 for them.

Another knee-jerk liberal reaction that won't accomplish a thing.

I have debated Feinstein on the issue of guns through a written communication over the years and she has proven to me that she is about as ignorant as a human being could possibly be. That's not the startling part. The startling part is that she could be that incredibly ignorant yet be in such a high position of power. Scary.

A bill for such a program would need to be initiated in the House, as the cost of it would double, at least, the national debt.

How can any entity buy “back” something that was never theirs in the first place? Even the word used to describe the proposed event is a lie.

I prefer a Senate seat buyback, as that is more essential to the survival of our nation.

We’ll pay each Dem and RINO $1 Billion, to go home and allow an AMERICAN, to be elected to that seat.

Trust me, that’s cheap at twice the price!

Right....after they swore up and down the ‘assault weapon’ registry would never be used to confiscate guns.

Not really stupid. hell bent on taking your guns, anyway they can or are able to foist onto the general public with inimal resistance. Nibbling away at the cheese, pretty soon there is no more. But stupid? nah, perhaps overreaching?

Frankly, I’m more than half hoping that if these socialists pass anything, they try an outright confiscation. I’d like to get CW2 out of the way while I’m still young enough to take part in the fight.

There are something like 300 million guns in the country, right? So ... if they start a new tax, at about $500 a head, they can then afford to buy up all the guns at $500 a piece. Sure, it will look a lot like outright confiscation since you have to pay the $500 so that they can afford to pay you the $500 which you then receive in return for your gun, but that’s just a detail, right?

Probably not. She’s one of the communist elite. She can have firearms. It’s the little people who “can’t be trusted” that they’re going after. The commies better lighten up and back off. They are violating the Bill of Rights which breaks the contract between the people and the government. The government then becomes no longer valid and will have to be replaced.

Permitting wouldn’t have stopped a single mass shooting. So clearly THAT is just an opportunistic political move on the graves of the innocent children.

Voluntary buy-backs are fine in my book. I don’t think people should be forced to own guns, and if they already own guns, they should have a way to get rid of those guns, since we don’t want them to throw them out where they could fall into the hands of criminals.

We could then sell the guns at gun shows, and the government could do background checks if they like.

We often say that gun laws only target the law-abiding. But a compulsory buy-back would make criminals out of a lot of gun owners, because they would not comply.
