Rumor has it that some “buy back” scenarios shield sellers from having the “turn in” firearm from being checked as to it’s legal status (a stolen firearm etc.). … a good way to sell a “hot” item.
A possible outcome is that the thief is compensated … and the original owner looses again. What a deal.
You can’t buy back what you never owned to begin with.
“Buy Back” is nothing but forced confiscation at gun point with the gov’t giving you a pittance to give up your guns.
“Restriction doesn’t mean confiscation.” Seems legit. Oh wait, “hell yes we’re going to take your AR-15’s.”
Another outcome is criminals steal guns for the purpose of selling them at a buyback… I forget where but there was some evidence of that being a real thing.
