What do ya'll think about the whole gun buyback program concept? If someone had a gun with a body attatched to it or a gun that no longer works I could see them trading it in. But why on earth would someone want to turn in the gun that they use for self defense?

The concept is a joke. Cities always tout them as successes, but I don't think it has any demonstrable effect on gun-related fatalities. At least something good came of the Chicago one, however.

I don't have a problem with this at all. I always wondered what would stop somebody from flipping guns that are broken and useless for a profit. I also believe that everyone should learn how to shoot a firearm.

Maybe they are trying to sign Delonte West or Javaris Crittenton

How about trading a gun for a Gilbert Arenas jersey?
