If you wish to spend your own money in a vain attempt to keep a gang member from having a gun go for it. Just make sure that each unwanted gun you buy and destroy is properly handled. I am unwilling to contribute a nickle of my tax money into such feel good but useless gestures.

You do realize how utterly foolish your notion that these gun buy back stunts do anything to stop gang or mass shooting violence? I am frankly amazed that you could type such without laughing out loud at the naivety of it.
