    I would think the main objective of gun bans and legislation is to keep the bad guys and nut-jobs from access to weapons. Although some politicians just want to take away our rights, and could care less about crime statistics. We know sane law abiding citizens rarely commit murder, and never mass murder.

    Instead of gun buy back programs, why not a gun bounty? Tell the crack heads, robbers, burglars, thugs, gang bangers they could make some money turning in their brother Felons that have guns illegally. Just think, they could earn a living, take guns out of the hands of BG's, and reduce their competition. Not to mention, a lot of honest people might just get their stolen property back.

    I bet some of these freaks, especially junkies, would be singing like Canaries.

    We already have similar programs, like Turn in a Pusher, Turn in a Poacher, Crime Stoppers. Just a thought.

    Offer free drugs, instead of money.

    Results would be better.

    They already know felons do not pay attention to gun laws.

    That's why we carry.

    In this free country people have rights, cops cannot go kicking in a door just because some "informant" says they have something illegal.

    Law enforcement already knows the drug dealers have illegal guns. But why do anything if the courts are gonna let the scum bags back out on the street. Paying them to rat out their competition wont do any good. Just put more tax payers money into the drug trade.

    Most of the inner city shootings are gang on gang.
